iHeartRadio bringing its streaming service to OUYA

With just five days left to go before the Kickstarter campaign for OUYA comes to a close, OUYA has announced a new partnership with radio streaming service iHeartRadio. Previously, the OUYA team revealed that the console will offer streaming games through OnLive, and now it sounds the multimedia onslaught is nearly complete thanks to this new deal with iHeartRadio. Now we just need OUYA to announce partnerships with the likes of Hulu Plus and Netflix and we'll be set.

Square Enix announces Final Fantasy III for OUYA

Just 8 more days to go until the Kickstarter for OUYA wraps up! Are you getting excited? Square Enix apparently is, as the company has announced a version of Final Fantasy III for OUYA. This will be mostly the same as the revamped Final Fantasy III we saw on Nintendo DS back in 2006 (and later on Android), but with a few key differences. It'll also be available on OUYA from day one, so how's that for a launch day announcement?

Android telepresence robot Botiful introduced on Kickstarter

Move over OUYA, because today we've got another Android-based Kickstarter to talk about. Its name is Botiful, and its looking to infuse a little personality into those Skype video calls you make with your Android phone. Botiful is being touted as the "first consumer telepresence robot," and by docking an Android phone on the robot (and using the special Skype interface), it allows users on the other end to choose what they're looking at. For example, if you're talking to someone who is using a Botiful, you're given control over their robot, so you can remotely control what the robot does and who the focus is on.

Robert Bowling to provide first exclusive game for OUYA

Yesterday we learned that OUYA has former Kindle developer Muffi Ghadiali working on the project, but today we get a bombshell of an entirely different nature. Robert Bowling (of Call of Duty fame) has announced that his freshly-formed studio, Robotoki, will be supplying OUYA with its first exclusive game: an episodic prequel to Robotoki's upcoming game Human Element. Human Element is a post-apocalyptic zombie game set for release in 2015, and hearing Bowling describe it, this episodic prequel sounds like it will take place years and years before the events in the main game.

OUYA gets Ethernet port and tablet product manager

With over $5 million pledged and still 21 days to go before its Kickstarter campaign wraps up, OUYA is in a pretty good spot. Some remain unconvinced that OUYA will be able to pull off an Android-based console, but today, the team revealed what they're calling a "secret weapon." Muffi Ghadiali has been working behind-the-scenes on OUYA as the person in charge of the development of the product's hardware and software, and today the OUYA team announced his involvement in the project for the first time. Some of you may know Ghadiali from his stint at Amazon's Lab126, where he worked on developing hardware and software for the Kindle line of products. Now, he's all OUYA's and he's got a plan to take this project from mere Kickstarter campaign to smashing success.

Wallee M Kickstarter campaign succeeds, works with Galaxy Nexus LTE too

When we reported on the Wallee M modular case/mount system this week, I made an impassioned plea for more support, as the creators were running out of time to reach their Kickstarter goal. I'm glad to say that after a last-minute push, they've raise the $35,000 necessary and will begin shipping out Galaxy Nexus and iPhone 4S magnetized cases and mounts in July. Hooray for quality Android accessories!

Wallee M Kickstarter is an awesome modular case for the Galaxy Nexus

Kickstarter has some great projects in the mobile space, and a lot of them are for nifty accessories you'd be unlikely to see anywhere else - check the Pebble Smart Watch for an exception. But finally there's a worthy case we can get behind, because the creators have wisely decided to include both the Galaxy Necus and the Galaxy S II in their support. If you're looking for a unique and certifiably awesome dock for your desk or car, check out Wallee.
