Originally taken as a simple iPhone multimedia remote for controlling your Sony Playstation 3, NetBlender has now open the doors to a full blown SDK! Not to be confused with Apple's iPhone SDK, the BD Touch SDK from NetBlender would not only allow for iPhone/iPod Touch control of a networked Blu-Ray player (a la PS3), but bi-drectional connectivity (in ur iPhone beaming digital copiez?), transfer of movie collection data, and the display of blu-ray "extras" directly on the iPhone, etc.
