This iPhone case does double duty as a game controller

The allure of casual gaming on the iPhone has allowed it to displace once dominant devices like the PlayStation Portable. Still, one drawback to iPhone gaming is the touchscreen interface, something that still sends many gamers over to Sony as they hunt for an experience similar to that of their console set-up .

The WynCASE is an iPhone case that doubles as gaming controller, with all the button configurations and placements familiar to hardcore gamers. Designed to work with the iPhone 4/4s, 5 and iPod Touch (4th and 5th generation), the WynCASE doesn't need batteries because it uses what the developers call BridgeTOUCH technology, which allows the buttons to transmit the electrical field usually sent by your finger to the iPhone's screen.

The case is currently being funded as a project through Kickstarter, but with less than a fifth of the funding reached and only 12 days to go, it's a toss up as to whether we'll actually see this device become a commercial reality. Nevertheless, in the meantime, you can see the WynCASE in action in the video below.
