ThinkGeek has announced the US$24.99 Joystick-It iPad Arcade Stick (, a solid aluminum joystick that attaches to any tablet gaming device to provide precision control of touch screen games.

Invented at ThinkGeek, the patent-pending Joystick-It requires no batteries to operate, says says Ty Liotta, head of ThinkGeek product development. The device works with any device that features a capacitive touchscreen, including the iPad and many Android tablets.  When not evading ghosts or striking fear in the heart of other 8-bit monstrosities, the Joystick-It can be removed from the screen.
