Bring your tablet-based gaming to the next level with the Joystick-it Tablet Arcade Stick. The Joystick-it gives you a real physical joystick for increased precision with touchscreen based games on your Apple iPad device. Simply press down to attach the Joystick-it to your iPad’s screen where the control pad for your finders is placed and you’ll be able to enjoy improved gaming. No wires or batteries needed.
The Joystick-it works with thousands of different game apps. Any game that has an on-screen control pad of some kind is perfect for the Joystick-it. Simply run your game of choice, place the Joystick-it over the on-screen control pad and push down. The Joystick-it sticks to the glass of your display and is ready for action. The lightweight solid milled-aluminum construction of the Joystick-it adds more precise movement and faster response time for enhanced playability. When you’re done, simply pull-up on the Joystick-it to remove from the screen.
The good news is that the Joystick-it works with any device which features a capacitive touchscreen. This includes not only the Apple iPad, but also many Android-based tablets that are going to be widely available this year. The Joystick-it will also work with mobile phones that use capacitive touchscreen displays, however it may not be ideal for this purpose because of its size as compared to the phone’s size which is much smaller than that of a tablet.
The price of the Joystick-it is $24.99 USD and it is expected to be available by the end of January.
In the olden days of gaming, when quarters were a hot commodity and color graphics were the newest innovation, one name stood out as king: Atari. The games were visually simple, but still retain their hold as some of the most challenging and fun games ever created. Sadly, it’s just too difficult to carry around an Atari system and a bag of cartridges and controllers (both joystick and paddle) with you wherever you go. So, we’ve found a pocket sized solution.
Each keychain has a secret – they contain real games. Plug in the included 6 foot cable (on a battery powered reel) into the keychain and your TV , and you really can enjoy the games of yesteryear. Yes, you read that right: these keychains contain real Atari games, and are fully playable!
Here’s how the games break down:
* Joystick 1 – Asteroids and Millipede
* Joystick 2 – Centipede and Yar’s Revenge
* Paddle – Pong, Breakout, and Warlords
Each keychain comes with a separate pocket size reel that holds six feet of cord and RCA jacks (included). Powered by 3 AAA batteries (not included). Single player only.
The price of the Atari 2600 Keychains is $14.99
