iCade - iPad Arcade Cabinet

Ich dachte, ich traue meinen Augen nicht, als ich das im Retropoly Forum gesehen hatte: iCade - Der Arcade Knaller fürs iPad! Das App kann kostenlos geladen werden, die restliche Automaten-Hardware kann für 149$ bestellt werden. Eigentlich wollte ich ja kein iPad kaufen...hmmm...
Leider nur ein Aprilscherz, trotzdem geile Idee :D

Enter the iCade iPad Arcade Cabinet! To use the iCade, gently slide the iPad into the docking cradle. The docking cradle uses a standard 30 pin connector to link the iPad to the professional-grade arcade controls. Once the iPad is in place, launch the iCade App (available free in the App Store April 3rd) and it's game on! We didn't want to take any chances you'd run out of juice during your favorite game, so we included a 10w USB power adapter so you can charge the iPad through any electrical outlet. Now you're all set to make an uninterrupted run on the Dig Dug World Record!
