Gaming accessories for tablets and smartphones have been largely more novelty than useful, but the Israel based company has dreamt up this mobile gaming add-on that you wear around your index finger and will play nice with your touchscreen device. Claiming to bring the best capabilities of a joystick and a mouse, the Ringbow hosts a D-pad with nine direction control, supports Bluetooth and can automatically integrate with mobile operating systems like iOS and Android. The SDK has already been available to developers to optimize the accessory for games so it could be coming to an iPad or Galaxy S3 soon.
