Get Behind the Wheel of a Real iPhone Racer (Video)


The Apple iPhone and iPod Touch are bonafide portable gaming machines, so it only makes sense for manufacturers to produce a myriad of gaming accessories for the little touchscreen wonders. Your living room is already filled with plastic instruments and Wii accessories, so why not add to the pile for your iPhone too?

Case in point, here is the Game Wheel Speed-X, a steering wheel attachment for the iPhone that makes those tilt-based racing games a little more intuitive. In essence, this plastic shell works in the same way as the Wii Wheel that came with Mario Kart Wii.

Yes, you may look like a total doofus while riding on the subway on your way to work, but who cares when you’re having so much fun tearing it up on the virtual test track? There are no real mechanical parts, so the Game Wheel Speed-X probably won’t break on you either.

Check out the hands-on video below to get a better sense of what you get with this iPhone steering wheel attachment. Before you know it, we’ll start to get bombarded with other iPhone accessories like a lightsaber, tennis racket, and tiny plastic guitar. Wrist strap not included.
