Though we're not huge fans of the "add a big plastic steering wheel to your iPhone or iPod touch" concept, the new Clingo Game Wheel from Allsop is just one of a number of new accessories from the company featuring a breakthrough semi-adhesive "Clingo" panel that bonds just enough with your device -- encased or unencased -- to let it stay put where you've attached it. In the Game Wheel, you're supposed to be able to more easily steer in driving games, but in other incarnations -- car and desk mounts -- the Clingo technology removes the need for brackets or complex, device-specific mounting frames. It'll be interesting to see how the technology evolves over time, particularly whether a less brightly colored version materializes in other products.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
