It seems everyone is trying to push out a physical keyboard or gamepad for the iPhone these days. Maybe it’s because the technology finally permits a more non-intrusive way of using them. The reasons could be many, but one thing is for sure and that is that we’re seeing more and more of them. They aren’t just for typing either, but for gaming as well. As we all know, gaming has been popular on iOS devices for some time now, and it’s unlikely that it will change anytime soon. But as the cases are pushed out, there is always someone out there who is trying to beat the predecessors. That might be the case with the new and ultimately impressive magnetic case which will bring a physical keyboard and a gamepad directly onto your iPhone.
The idea is quite simple. You slip a magnetic case onto your iPhone which allows you to snap on either a physical keyboard or a gamepad. It’s really that easy. The magnetic case in itself is super slim which makes the whole thing even more appealing. By the looks of it, the magnetic case holds onto the keyboard and the gamepad quite securely as well. That’s a necessity in order not to lose out on the experience itself when typing or playing games.
It might look like a thin piece of metal at first, maybe even a non-functional concept design. However, this magnetic case is actually available right now over at iPhone5Mod for just $59.90. It’s a pretty decent price considering you will get both a physical keyboard and a gamepad included in the magnetic case. Now you have no reason not to play all those arcade games on your iPhone anymore. The gamepad and the physical keyboard on this magnetic case seems to be able to infuse quite a lot of realism into whatever you are doing. If you are sick of the touchscreen keyboard on your iPhone, this is what you should pick up.
