Good news for those with a collection of gaming Apps and jailbroken emulators: iPhone control pads are in development.
iControlPad has released photos of its prototype, which offers tangible, traditional controls for the iPhone. The finished product is expected to sell for less than $30.
Meanwhile, an anonymous developer is also working on an iPhone control pad, which is scheduled to be tested in October.
Part of the iPhone’s charm is its unorthodox controls, which emphasize touch and movement. For some, however, it’s quite an adjustment to make, especially when playing an SNES emulator. (The on-screen control pad can be a drag.) This peripheral would be a good alternative for purist gamers.
