Unlike the original version, the NES emulator for the iPhone works great now —except for the sound. There’s still one big problem: the lack of tactile feedback on the buttons. Natetrue, the creator of iBrickr, came up with an ingenious hardware patch: a transparent vinyl layer cut like the gamepad buttons. It seems silly, but it works….[…] Thanks to macpro2006 for providing this nice story on Digg (more than 531Diggs).
What other users say about this:
Sevenduolux: Just pay IMMR to do it the correct way! Look at the Chairman of the Board for Immersion Corp. Then Google him. Check out his history. IMMR Should be in the Iphone VERY so. VibeTonz and TouchSense will be felt!!!
zwaldowski: Why is this not in the Apple section? That’s why I blocked it.
theurbaninja: hahahahaha, really… you have got to be kidding me. playing nintendo games on a touchscreen. seriously? good luck with that.
superjamie: Hahaha, all you fanboys went on and on about how good touchscreens are, now you’re going to buy an extension to get your tactile response back?
Maddox was right, iPhones really are lame.
cmysites: I’ll just wait until they make a hack to load Linux on the iphone, until then I’ll stick with a real gameboy.

drouk1556: I don’t own an iPhone so I don’t know how/if this would work, but remember those labyrinth mazes you could tilt to avoid holes and reach an “exit”? Can that be done on an iPhone?
