Featuring solid milled-aluminum construction, the JOYSTICK-IT from ThinkGeek doesn’t require any wires or batteries. The device itself has no moving parts with a spherical surface on the bottom of the device allowing the joystick to be rolled around, which causes the outer edge of the base to contact the screen and register input on any capacitive touchscreen. Although the JOYSTICK-IT sticks to the screen, it is easily removable and repositionable.

Although ThinkGeek says the JOYSTICK-IT will work with any device with a capacitive touchscreen, its size will make it less than ideal for mobile phones, but it looks like just the thing for adding some extra precision to tablet-based gaming.

JOYSTICK-IT runs $24.99

 

The JOYSTICK-IT costs US$24.99 (although at the time of publication it was out of stock).
