ThinkGeek Joystick-It for Touchscreen Gamers

I am a big fan of ThinkGeek, and I am a big fan of mobile gaming with my iPad and other touchscreen devices. When ThinkGeek debuts a new joystick add on for any touchscreen device they have my attention. The new controller is called the Joystick-It and it almost looks like one of the infamous April fools jokes ThinkGeek is known for.

The Joystick-It Arcade Stick suction cups to the front of the touchscreen of any capacitive device like the iPad. When installed, it translates the movement to the screen allowing you to get your retro game on. This thing is very cool and it is made from polished aluminum.

The aluminum was to provide lightweight and to give the feel we recall from the glory days of arcade gaming. The Joystick-It will be offered at the end of the month in limited quantities for $24.95.
