It's not often I look at a product or service and say "I really really hope this isn't real, and it's an elaborate fake". Alas, this day has come.

Bring Back the HTC Teeter Experience with Labyrinth Pro
Not too long ago, we talked about a game that put a 3D spin on the traditional labyrinth-style game. Bringing much of the best of previous ball maze games, iCube offered new users a fresh take on the old classic. However, sometimes we want something a bit more simple—something a bit more similar to that old favorite Teeter.

The game features a convincing physics engine, realistically designed balls, sound effects, time keeping, and accelerometer calibration.
