    It works over bluetooth. It also has a battery and charges the phone while you are gaming.

    I was getting sick of attempting to and failing at controlling Street Fighter and NOVA 2 (not to mention emulators) with the touch interface, so I'll be picking one up. Dual analog sticks is such a glorious addition to iPhone gaming imo. :D

    I will pass, as I don't want another thing to carry around. It's a cool concept though.

    Also, from their webpage:

    Wait... what?

    EDIT: Nevermind, I now see that it works with "any" smartphone. It's worth noting that the app needs to support it, and it also said your iPhone should be jailbroken. This makes me wonder if it would even work on most games, as they usually just implement touch-screen controls (like Street Fighter 4)...

    Pretty cool. Not sure if it's $75 cool but nice idea.
