Nokia Patent Morphs Your Stylus into a Cell Phone Joystick

Illustration for article titled Nokia Patent Morphs Your Stylus into a Cell Phone Joystick

Though it bears a very strong resemblance to another joystick/cell phone patent we've recently seen, Nokia's take on mobile gaming is slightly different cause rather than house a pop-up joystick in your cell phone's mid-riff, they want you to use your stylus as a joystick. Seems like a neat trick as long as it's a tight connection and your stylus doesn't pop out every time you move left or right.

and you can patent this? Mighty obvious I would've thought.

Much like me sticking a fat sewing pin in the top of the IBM Trackpoint to use that as a joystick.
