Fling iPad Joystick Adds Tactile Feedback to iPad Games

I love to play games on my iPad, but I have to say that with games that use a virtual on-screen joystick, I really miss the feeling of a true analog stick. Well, thanks to this new gadget, that problem has come to an end.

Ten One Designs’ Fling is a tactile game controller for the iPad. You simply stick it onto the screen of your iPad using its gentle, removeable suction cups, and your screen instantly spawns a real, honest-to-goodness analog stick.

The clever design is made primarily of transparent, flexible resin, so you can still see through to the screen, except where your thumb rests – and that’s already the case when you play games without such a contraption. Here’s a video clip showing off the Fling in action:

I wonder if you could use two of these to play games like Geometry Wars Touch. Other than taking up a lot of screen real estate, I can’t see why not. This ingenious little gadget will sell for $24.95 (USD) – including a handy microfiber carrying pouch – when it hits. Ten One will be accepting pre-orders for the Fling starting on January 6th.
