    iPad Bluetooth Game controller: why hasn't this been made yet??
    It just seems like such a good idea to me, but nobody has made anything. The closest Iíve seen is that ThinkGeek came out with their iCade that puts the iPad in a small arcade-style game cabinet. The controls work over Bluetooth and apparently work, at least, with the Atari game collection.

    I just onít understand why they, or anyone else wouldnít take the logical step of producing a handheld battery powered controller. Iíve heard that Wiimotes work pretty well on JB devices.

    I guess itís that youíd have to prop up your ipad somewhere to play that makes it less on-the-fly portable gaming, but seems like it would be perfect for lunch breaks at the office or in a plane and in hotels. Stuff like that.

    15" MBP, Core i7/2GHz, 8GB RAM, 480GB Crucial M500 SSD
    I don't get it either.

    I saw some prototypes of controllers that the iPhone/iPod touch could dock into with a typical d-pad and fire buttons. That would be cool too.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    That's not bad, but I'd still rather have an separate controller in my hand. Or better yet, you could have 2 controllers and play 2 player games.

    I could see some epic SFII lunchtime battles in my office.
