DIY: iPhone Game Accessory

iPhone Game Accessory

Marware is planning to release an accessory called Game Grip for the iPhone which as the name suggests are silicone sleeves that provide hand grips on either side of the iPhone designed to enhance the gaming experience of accelerometer-based iPhone games.

Flickr user ronnsprocket seems to have liked the idea of the iPhone game accessory as he has created a free version of the iPhone accessory out of a cardboard box which is similar in functionality to Marware’s Game Grip.

As you can see from the photos below Flickr user ronnsprocket has created a free
version of the iPhone accessory which is similar
in functionality to Marware’s Game Grip using a cardboard box, an X-Acto knife and some glue.

Folks at Touch Arcade have contacted the engineer behind the project to see if the cutting templates can be published online for the benefit of other iPhone users. We will let you know as soon as you get more details.

We had liked the idea behind iControlpad, an iPhone accessory which brought physical buttons and a joypad to the iPhone but not sure if we really need an iPhone game accessory like Game Grip to enhance gaming experience on the iPhone.

What do you think?
