I don't know about you, but I can't play games on touchscreens: I either look at the game and miss the buttons or look at the buttons and not see the game. As always, ThinkGeek comes to the rescue with their unusual but clever geekery: say hello to the iCade 8-Bitty, a Nintendo-style controller to play your games on modern devices.

This wireless game controller sports classic a D-Pad and button layout reminiscent of retro 8-bit game consoles from the 80's and 90's. The 8-Bitty works with your iPad and iPhone to play apps using a game controller with real tactile input. It also works with Android devices as well! 8-Bitty supports iCADE's growing list of hundreds of retro game apps, including Atari Classics collection, Pac-Man, Super Mega Worm, etc. The 8-Bitty uses a completely open interface system, so that any app developer can easily add game support.
