ThinkGeek unveils the Joystick-It for touchscreen gamers

ThinkGeek controller is for any touchscreen device

| Gaming News | Posted: Jan 6, 2011 7:00 pm

ThinkGeek has some really cool products and accessories for all sorts of gadgets and gear in their line. The company is also famous for making things as jokes that have enough cool to them to be appealing and enough realism to fool people. If I had laid eyes on the Joystick-It a few months from now around April I would have called BS on this thing, it looks too cool to be a real product.

It's a shiny chrome joystick that claims to stick to your iPad screen and allow you to control games that use a virtual joystick with a real joystick in your hand. The thing has a thin stalk and a big ball on top that reminds me more than a bit of the arcade sticks I grew up playing at the arcade.

 

The Joystick-It has a patent pending and needs no batteries. It is shown with the iPad, but it will work with any capacitive touchscreen device. ThinkGeek will sell the controller for $24.95 with limited quantities available at the end of January.
