ThinkGeek's JOYSTICK-IT Is A Bionic Upgrade For Screen-Swiping Gamers

FAIRFAX, Va., Jan. 5, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ThinkGeek is proud to announce a new upgrade for the white-hot tablet gaming market. The JOYSTICK-IT TM Arcade Stick is a solid aluminum joystick that attaches to any tablet gaming device to provide precision control of touch screen games.

"Out of the box, the JOYSTICK-IT works with thousands of different game apps," says Ty Liotta, head of ThinkGeek product development. "We chose to use solid-milled aluminum because it was lightweight but also provided the most realistic arcade gaming feel."

Invented at ThinkGeek, the patent-pending JOYSTICK-IT requires no batteries to operate. The device works with any device which features a capacitive touchscreen, this includes the iPad™ and many Android™ tablets. When not evading ghosts or striking fear in the heart of other 8-bit monstrosities, the JOYSTICK-IT is easily removed from the screen.

Priced at $24.95, JOYSTICK-IT will be available in limited quantities by the end of January.  Consumers can sign up for product updates and read more about JOYSTICK-IT on ThinkGeek's website.
