Wacky iPad accessories are slowly starting to surface, with one designer convinced that a steering wheel is what’s required if you hope to play games on the Apple tablet.

But before you howl with laughter at Greenberg’s design, remember that Nintendo has launched a similar, if very slightly more technically advanced, peripheral for the Wii: the unimaginatively named Wii Wheel for use with Mario Kart.

Greenberg’s iDift – if it ever makes it past the conceptual stage – should make holding the iPad while playing driving games slightly easier, we reckon. ®
