The concept is really simple and has already received rave reviews including Macworld's Best of Show for 2011. The Fling is clear plastic, so it doesn't interrupt the visuals of the game you're playing on the iPad screen. The joystick uses suction cups to attach to the glass above in-game touch control areas, converting them into a real, tactile controller.

Ten One Design Demos Pressure-Sensitive iPad Drawing

Ten One Design has developed some interesting software to simulate a pressure-sensitive screen on the iPad. The app works by measuring distance between the touch screen and a capacitive tip such as that found on the Pogo Sketch stylus.

In this demo video, different line widths are drawn by the same stylus, while finger and hand touches are masked out. This makes it possible to write on the iPad just like a notebook, even while resting your hand on the screen.
