Ten One Fling adds tactile game control to iPad


Ten One Design has introduced Fling, its new tactile game controller for iPad. Fling is a transparent, flexible accessory that attaches to the iPad’s screen via suction cups, and gives users the tactile sensation of a joystick. According to the company, users simply launch an app with a directional pad or virtual joystick, secure Fling over the control area, and place their thumb on the center control. Other features include a microfiber carrying bag and one of three accent colors. Ten One Design’s Fling tactile game controller for iPad is now available for pre-order and is expected to ship by the end of January for $25.

Is there a law I don’t know aobut out there that says any (hyped) iPod/iPad accessory must cost a minimum of $20, and more if possible.

It’s a non-powered conductive D-Pad that sticks via suction cups, in other words, about $0.20 worth of materials and a lunch break’s R&D.

It’s a cute idea, maybe even very functional, but when you can get a full blown electronic game with D-Pad, screen, and included batteries for half the price of this accessory, the gouging is ludicrous.
