ScreenStick is a stick-on joystick for tablets

Mobile gaming has become a sophisticated hobby over the years, and anyone who enjoys it quickly grows tired of on-screen digital controls. The solution is a mobile gamepad, of which there is no shortage, but they all come with the same design: a clip in which a smartphone or tablet is slid, positioning it above a standard gaming controller.

This is the kind of thinking that led LeapFrog, who specializes in all kinds of electronics for kids, to develop LeapTV, a video game console, you can't really call it a "box", that is designed to get kids' bodies and minds moving.
