Fling Mini Transforms Your iPhone Into A Dual Analogue Gaming Beast

iPhone touchscreen controls suck, and there's only one way to fight suck: More suck. Ten One Design's suction cup mounted tactile game controller for the iPhone were created to suck your touchscreen control blues away.

Ten One Design creates devices that give iPads and iPhones the finger, or at least the sense that you're giving it the finger. The company that created the first capacitive styluses for the iPhone takes its touchy technology and focuses it on the problem of iOS gaming. After great success on the iPad, Ten One scales things down with the Fling Mini.

The Fling Mini attaches to your iPhone screen via a pair of suction cups, placing what amounts to an analogue stick over the areas where games that rely on touchscreen-based joysticks would have you place your finger. The capacitive material beneath the stick doubles as your digit, only without the issues that generally arise from rubbing your fingers over a smooth screen all day long.

The Fling Mini is now shipping for the iPhone, with a two-pack running only $US24.95. It's the companion to any game that let's your fingers do the walking.

    Nice. Now instead of awkard finger controls you lose 1/3 of your screen...

    yeah ok, it only 'slightly' obscures the screen!

    Better idea.

    * Shoot developers who keep cramming more and more controls on screen (they won't be needed in the new world)
    * Sell a universal and affordable Bluetooth controller

      I totally agree. Check this out this controller: www.bladepad.com This will be epic!!!

    What if I don't WANT dual analog sticks? All I want is ONE! BUTTEN! What apout QUESTS!?

    Not sure about all this bulky-looking side-mounted bizzo. It's a shame there's not some kind of suction-cup with a see-through button/stick that can apply directly to the screen.

    Fling is terrible, bought one and a total waste of money.

    Grabbed a set off Gadgets4Geeks today, not bad. They don't fill up the screen as much as you would think. Works a treat with Gun Bros.
