The iPad may have rid itself of buttons and tactile controls for a reason, but that doesn't mean people don't want a touch of the past with something like the Joystick-It. This arcade-style aluminum stick specifically made for the iPad will have you back in the 90s in no time.

If you're looking for a more updated version, you can always try the Fling iPad Joystick, but the Joystick-It has that retro vibe that is hard to beat.

Brought to you by ThinkGeek, the Joystick-It suctions on and uses conductive foam to work. Stats for Tablet Arcade Sticks Trending: Older & Mild
