Back in January I wrote about the Fling Suction Cup Joystick that was coming for the iPad in multiple colors and would improve gaming for an already impressive gaming tablet. Not a whole lot has changed since then except they are calling it the Fling Tactile Game Controller and that they are also now going to be available at Apples Stores across the country.
This is definitely a nice looking game controller and not bad on the wallet either at $19.95 for one Fling Controller and $29.95 for a pack of two. Got some video goodness below and a press release for more information after that.
Capacitive touch screen tactile game controller for iPad offers ultimate control over any game with a virtual joystick
Montclair, NJ – Ten One Design, creator of the first capacitive touch-screen stylus for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, has announced its revolutionary tactile game controller for iPad – Fling – is now available in Apple stores nationwide.
This patent pending device adheres to the iPad’s screen via dual suction cups over the directional pad of any applicable game to deliver physical resistance, ultimate control and superb response for full gaming immersion. Fling’s unique transparent and flexible spiral design provides an unrestricted view of all on-screen action. Click here to see full video demo.
Fling works with any iPad game with a directional pad, or virtual joystick, including Meteor Blitz, Across Age and Super Megaworm, among many other First Person Shooter and RPG titles.
The included microfiber bag is ideal for on-the-go storage and doubles as the perfect screen cleaning cloth to eliminate unwanted smudges and fingerprints.
Featuring Ice, Ninja or Ultraviolet accents, Fling is available for just $19.95 (single pack) or $29.95 (2-pack) at Apple stores nationwide and www.tenonedesign.com.
