Does the Touch + Loop = a gaming controller?

    Just wondering whether Apple introduced 'The Loop' accessory as an introductory idea to using the Touch as a controller - much like the Wii controllers had straps?

    I could definitely see this happening... it has the gyro's, airplay, bluetooth, etc. etc. Real Racing already uses it right? Why not throw in some tennis apps too!

    Thoughts?

    One of the complaints I hear from my Japanese friends is that the iPhone and iPod Touch don't have anywhere to hang your "phone charms".

    These are basically straps with custom materials and trinkets attached. Characters from games or anime, famous buildings, mementos, decorations, etc.

    I think it's more to address that, than to be a "safety strap". After all, if you're swinging your hands wildly enough to toss your iPod -- you probably can't see the screen.
