iCADE - Mini Arcade Cabinet with iPad Used as Screen

Jan 11, 2011
The iCADE arcade-style controller for iPad was initially an April joke but after gaining a lot of attention ThinkGeek teamed up with ION Audio to create the real thing.

The final product is a unit equipped with a full-sized joystick and 8 arcade buttons. It would be interesting to note that the device is slightly different from the initial mockup, having the iPad, joystick and buttons slightly angled to offer a better view and more comfort.

One interesting thing about the iCADE is that its controls are connected to the iPad via Bluetooth.

ION Audio in collaboration with Atari brought a series of classic arcade games such as Asteroids. According to the company, new and existing applications can be easily updated so they could be used on the iCADE. It is worth mentioning that the to-be-released API will permit any iOS developer to make video game compatible with the device.

The gadget was presented at the 2011 CES. So far the device is in the production stage, but when it hits the market you will be able to buy it for $ 99.99.
