The developers over at www.icontrolpad.com have started production of the iControlPad module for the iPhone. This module will bring real game controls to your iPhone (see the rendered photo above).
Note that the current version only works on the iPhone and not the iPod Touch. This is because the physical structure of the module was designed for the iPhone. Maybe they will come out with a version for the iPod Touch at a later date.
I have ordered a couple of modules to do some testing and game playing with the modules.
I would like to find out how much interest there is for the iControlPad module from you. If there is enough interest, Orange Gadgets will become a U.S. distributor for the iControlPad, possibly with discounted pricing (MSRP is $34.99). If you are in the U.S., you will also be able to save on shipping as the modules would normally ship from the U.K. manufacturer.
So leave your feedback here on the blog or, if you already know that you want an iControlPad, sign up for a module on the Orange Gadgets website. The website has been slightly updated and another database has been added to track interest in this product.
Please sign up before the start of next week if you would like to be sure to get a unit from their first production run.
