If you have ever tried to play a two-player multi-touch game on your iPhone, then you know how tricky it can be. While it’s still fun, and debateably a better experience than the dollar-eating barroom games, you will soon have the opportunity to completely upgrade your multiplayer iPhone game experience.
Enter the coolest iPhone peripheral to date: Table.Connect for iPhone. While still in development, this brilliant idea proposes a beautifully designed table that connects directly to the iPhone via the dock connector. The mockups boast a 58″ capacitive multitouch surface, sculpture and design to match the appearance of an iPhone, a power button, a Home button, and a built-in AC power supply…
Now you can fire-up that AirHockey app on your iPhone and actually play Air Hockey the way it was meant to be played. In fact, any two-player app that has a divided screen will be much more enjoyable. I’d bet that we’ll start to see 3-4 player multitouch games manifest. Poker, Monopoly, dominos, slot car, schema design… I can only imagine how much of a game changer this would be!
This all assumes that it will be affordable. What do you think? What’s the magic price? Which apps would be awesome on this?
