Although iControlPad never materialized, gPod, an iPhone case with an integrating gaming control pad, hopes to see the light of day.
Interfacing with the Apple 30 pin connector and providing tactile buttons in the conventional game pad layout, the iPhone Game Pad allows a massive library of arcade and console games to be ported to the iPhone and not loose that old school interface that people who grew up in the 80′s and 90′s enjoyed so much.
A proof of concept working prototype was produced to suit the original iPhone and is shown in the video below. A refined design has been developed to suit the iPhone 3G and 3GS.
