A while back, we talked about the cool Ten One Design Fling joystick devices for the iPad and other touchscreen gadgets. The things stuck to the screen of your touch device with suction cups and gave the virtual controls of some games a real world feel. The company has now unveiled a smaller version of the Fling joystick called the Fling mini.
The mini controllers are made for iPhones and other small touchscreen smartphones. They are much smaller than the original and designed to stick on each side of the iPhone or other device. The downside I see is that the little sticks block a lot of the screen view.
That screen blocking would get old fast for some of us. The original Fling worked well if it stayed in place. You can pre-order the fling mini right now for $24.95 for a pair. The maker says they will ship by July 15.
