Classics - Arcade Buttons bring physical buttons to the iPhone and iPad [video]

Classics - Arcade Buttons is another accessory aimed at improving the gaming experience on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. The Classics - Arcade Buttons enables you to use real hardware buttons on the screen of your device. We already have a couple of alternatives to replace the on-screen joystick, namely the Fling and Joystick-IT; now we can address the buttons too.

The Classics bring tactile feel to gaming on the iPhone, iPad, Android, and all other capacitive touch screen phones and tablets. The Classics use a special micro-suction cup material that sticks onto the screen of your device and holds on tight, but is easily removed. No adhesive and no unsightly, large suction cups to get in your way of pure pwnage.

The buttons come in packs of three and cost $19.95, available in mid July. Take a look at the short video after the break. We would love to know what you think of these!

Classics - Arcade Buttons bring physical buttons to the iPhone and iPad [video]


My personal opinion is that someone should create a device that the iPhone slides into. Putting crap all over your iPhone screen is a waste of screen real-estate. Imagine something that looks like an xbox controller that you just slide your phone into. That allows your fingers to be on the device and not covering the screen.
