Joystickers stick removable buttons to your smartphone's screen

Joystickers stick removable buttons to your smartphone's screen
The guys, who decided to found Joystickers must have been very irritated by the lack of any tactile feel while playing games on their iPhones. So irritated that they decided to make their own physical gaming buttons! That is right, the little buttons, that they have chosen to call “The Classic”, stick straight onto the screen of an iPhone, iPad, or any other device with a capacitive touchscreen, and promise not to leave any traces after being taken off.

The secret? A clever microsuction material, which has been imported straight from Japan, is found in the base of the buttons and helps them attach to the smooth glass surface of the screen without scratching it. Simply launch any game, which makes use of onscreen buttons, and place The Classics on top of them. This is excellent for bringing the action back to shooter and platformer games.

Unfortunately to anyone, who wishes to get their hands on a set of Classics, this can only be done after  donating $30 to the project. A set will be shipped to all contributors as soon as production starts in May this year. Among the other touchscreen-friendly products by Joystickers are a stylus and a brush, which you could use to draw mustaches on people's pictures and do all sorts of other neat things.
