The idea of a gamepad sticking out of your iPhone may be hilarious, but it's still not as funny as attempting to play Mega Man 2 with a virtual d-pad. The 60beat Gamepad connects to an iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad through the headphone jack, providing the complete set of console controls to any supported iOS app -- shoulder buttons, analog sticks, and all.

At the moment, that list of supported iOS apps is pretty small (just Bugdom 2 and Aftermath), making the controller perfect for someone who either loves those games or is banking on more support in the future.
