    I already know about touch pad and vnsea but those are used to control your computer how about being able to control a game. like instead of buying that expensive driving wheel hook up for your computer you would be able to use the accelermoter as a steering wheel in a racing game. a screen that resembles a controller with all the buttons needed . ( i would love to to an analog type stick like the one in i think it was *i_can_c_u_like_a_sponge's n64 controller concept) possible or imposssible?

    no because it would have to be recognised as a controller by the computer
    soo there would be some big software in there
    unlikely but indeed possible
    also useless
    would be horried to use

    well not necessarily - I mean what if instead of setting whatever game your playing to use a joystick (or wheel as the case may be) keep it at keyboard controls and then have the app know that tilting left means keyboard press "a" and tilt right means keyboard press "d"

    I mean its obviously possible to do that, because its been done before. basically its touchpad but with accelerometer integration. I think its possible, lets do it!

    I know it is expensive and extra money but a PS3 sixaxis controller will do the same now. There are drivers for the six axis.

    not everyone wants to buy a ps3 controller the whole point of this forum is to make something not available on the iphone/ipod touch and put it on the touch. thats like saying just go out and buy a 400 dollar GPS instead of using a device capable of doing what a gps can do and more.
