Control iPad games with iPod/iPhone?

I've seen a pic of this somewhere. Didn't read much because the articles were boring and unnecessarily long.

Anyway... I can't wait to use my iPod touch as a controller for a game on my iPad!

Anoyone know if anything like that is out yet or soon to be?

Chopper 2 is coming out soon. Padracer is another game which allows you to use iPod as the controller.

Padracer! That's what I saw on a different site. Thanks. I hope this will get devs interested.

Unfortunately, it's not my type of game...

MPad Controller is an iPhone app you can buy that controls the games MPad Snake and MPad Plane on the iPad. The games are free, but the controller costs a couple bucks.

I got to try this scheme recently on Chopper 2 and it was pretty cool.

iPad - iPhone

I knew you could tether the iPhone to other devices, but I never thought of using it as a controller. The developers are pushing the limits of technology, I love it. Wonder what they will think of next, very cool and I'm sure apple loves it bc you need two of their products to do it.

I hope more devs will begin to add this functionality.
Netflix, and AirVideo would be great. then when you're streaming video to your TV, you don't have to get up to start a new episode.
