Fed up with using your iPhone's touch screen for games and looking for a proper gamepad experience? Look no further, because the iControlPad will be with you soon.

The device has been in development for some time. It allows you to fit a jailbroken iPhone in between two side clips that hold a gamepad below the phone in landscape mode, like you would a Nintendo DS. It's connected with a sync cable.

A different form of the iControlPad appeared before in 2008, but the developers decided not to go with that design, as it resulted in poor controls and had a problem that prevented you from using it on different devices.
