Plastic nubs and stickers are tacky! If you want to add some real control to your iPad, do it right. And doing it right is attaching a real, arcade-style aluminum joystick to your iPad’s screen.
The JOYSTICK-IT works by attaching itself to the screen with a suction cup and using conductive foam to make the iPad’s capacitive touchscreen register input. Since it’s removable, you can put it wherever the d-pad of each game is. Watch the joystick in action:

JuiceBar Portable Solar Charger
by Josh H. on May 13, 2010 in Cool Gadgets
Despite it’s name, the JuiceBar is not the newest health drink franchise trend sweeping across the country. And it’s not a fruit-infused snackbar loaded with a full months supply of vitamin C. Instead, this JuiceBar is full of electronic gadget juice, also known as extra battery power - and it’s our favorite flavor.
This sleek re-chargeable battery pack stores enough power to charge most handheld electronics and can charge a typical cell phone several times. The JuiceBar’s internal Li-ion battery can be re-charged via USB connection or via the built-in solar panel. This arrangement gives you maximum flexibility while traveling or computing.
Included with the JuiceBar are connectors for nearly all popular mobile phones and portable electronic gadgets.
