A problem I have with the iPad is that the virtual keyboard doesn’t offer any tactile feedback, so I have to keep my eye on the keyboard when I type. I’m not a gamer, but I would imagine the virtual controls in iPad games would suffer from the same lack of feedback. To address this problem, Ten One Design has introduced the Fling Tactile Game Controller for iPad games that use a virtual joystick. The Fling controller attaches to the iPad screen with suction cups. It’s made mostly of a transparent material that seems to disappear on an illuminated screen. (There are also machined aluminum pieces.) Ten One Design is taking pre-orders for the Fling Tactile Game Controller now. Buy one Fling for $24.95 or two for $38.
