How to Transform Your iPad into an ’80s Arcade Game


Don’t worry, we’re not going to tempt you to dissect, hack, or otherwise mod your expensive mobile computer. All you have to do to turn your iPad or Android tablet into an ’80s-style arcade game is get your hands on this stick-on mini-joystick by (who else?) ThinkGeek. Wired explains how the device works: “Press it into place over the onscreen controls and the milled aluminum stick will transfer your jerks and tugs into virtual finger-presses by way of a conductive foam pad beneath.” You can pre-order now to get your Pac-Man on at the end of January.
