Plug the GamePad controller from 60beat into the audio jack on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch, and you’ll be able to control your game play with a multitude of buttons, joysticks, and controllers. (There’s an audio splitter, so you’ll still be able to hear your game sounds.) The GamePad has 2 analog joysticks, a D-pad, and 10 action buttons (including the two joysticks). The ergonomically-designed controller doesn’t require batteries, and it’s compatible with both versions of the iPad, the iPhone 4 and 4S, and the 4th generation of the iPod touch. There are only a couple of compatible games at the moment, but 60beat promises that a full collection of games for the GamePad will be added in February 2012. The GamePad is $49.99.
