Here is another iPhone game controller case, but does not need batteries or Bluetooth
This controller sets itself apart from the pack with no batteries and no Bluetooth. It is a really neat concept that utilizes the capacitive connection that most on-screen games rely on when playing games and your fingers get in the way of the action.

It is called the WynCASE, and we have to say it is one of the more interesting and practical ideas for a game-controller case we have seen. The case’s buttons make use of the capacitive touch functions of the screen which enables the case to operate without the need for a battery or Bluetooth connectivity. The screen responds as if your fingers are touching the screen.

This case will not cost a lot either, early backers that help out WynLABS with as little as $30 will get a case when it becomes available this coming spring. They will ship internationally for only $10 more. At the point of ringing in the New Year, they were at about $17,000 toward an $80,000 goal with 11 days to go. Check out the pictures and video below, then click the Kickstarter source link if you would like to get your hand on one of these.

I welcome the 50's and the 60's years old grandparents who now playing games on their iPhones. May be they will be more in touch and have something in common with their below 15 years old grandchildren with iPods.

Let me ask you a question when you make a comment like this, is it to lend anything intellectual to phoneArena and the phoneArena users, or is it just to bash Apple and iOS and make sure everybody on the site knows you hate Apple and iOS like all your other comments do? I gotta know?

I think the reason he says this is because he feels insecure on his current device, and bash iPhone just to make himself better :)

too bad we don't care

Why was this taken as an insult? I think you really are insecure about your phone, because he actually didn't say anything negative. Quite the opposite actually. That can be a really good thing. So, unless you don't like spending time with your grandparents, he hasn't said anything negative. If he did, he failed at it.

Trust me this is all he does on this site. If there's 100 apple/iOS articles, he's bashing 100 apple/iOS articles. And no I'm not insecure about my phone...it's a phone dude.

Im talking about this one here and now. So its 99/100.

Theres something negative about everything in this world because everything is always better.

So, if the iPhone is inferior to some other phones, so what? I just hate it when people cover up faults. With any product actually. Im not talking about preferences like styling. I talk about software and hardware features.

Just because someone likes something better does not make it better. I like my GSIII and I think it's the best for me because it has everything I need and more. I haven't had any problems people claim this phone to have. I even like and prefer the styling because I have a removable backing to replace if it gets scratched or a battery once its worn out. People say it's ugly, but I dont see how you can make a phone ugly that has the shape about 90+ phones out there. Maybe its the single button it has on the front? Idk.

I would back it up... But no support for any popular android devices is a bummer :< I'll consider when they have support at least for tablets

same. I have no desire to back Apple only devices, because 1) I dont own an Apple device so it does me no good personally and 2) accessory manufacturers that continue to cater to Apple and ignore the majority of the market are in essence helping to hold back progress in the marketplace. I have no problem with some accessories being catered specifically to iDevices, but when you consider just how much of the accessories out there are catered to them, and that they Disproportionately WAY more than devices that are universal or cater to other device types, its sickening.

This reason is one reason I am going to be buying the Gameklip for my Galaxy S3.

If this works decently then I have just one word to say - Brilliant!
Compatible with all touch games without having to do anything regarding the software.
Bring this to android, sit back and watch the fireworks
