TouchArcade points out that TenOneDesign has posted new miniaturized versions of the Fling joysticks designed for the iPhone and iPod Touch. We covered the original version made for the iPad back in January and even tried them out at CES. The springy controllers work surprisingly well for any joystick or dual-stick controller games such as Geometry Wars. From an earlier review:
The Fling is a cleverly designed device with two suction cups on one side connected to a plastic ring. Inside of the plastic ring is a spiral that suspends an electrically conductive joystick in the center. This spiral works like a spring, always returning the joystick to the center, and providing more resistance the closer you get to the edge of the plastic ring.
A pack of two costs $24.95 and start shipping in July.

And if you ask me, an iPod touch + iControlPad looks more portable than an iPod touch + Fling Mini, since the iControlPad has a lower profile.
As a bonus, the iControlPad can be used with anything that's wireless HID compatible.
#1 - The usage of the word "mini" should be replaced by "kind of covering the entire iPhone screen with joysticks".
#2 - Those are some huge nipples.
