iCade for iPad is now a real thing

Way back in April 2010 the world was young and carefree. It was a more innocent time, and we were all enthralled by the newly released iPad and its many fashionable covers. In amongst all that we were introduced to the iCade – a mini arcade cabinet that turned Apple’s latest tech into a 1980s fantasy. It was the best of times! And then it was the blurrst of times when we realised the device was simply an April Fool's joke concocted by the neck-beards at Think Geek.

As it turns out, a whole lot of people really wanted the iCade to be real. Think Geek did the maths, realised they could be rich, and decided to turn their mocked-up LOL into a real thing. Several months later, the iCade is now officially, official.

A collaboration between Think Geek and Ion Audio, the revamped iCade connects to your iPad via Bluetooth, features arcade size controls, and allows you to play your favourite games 1980s style. Atari and various other developers are already promising full comparability for their titles and online updates should make it relatively easy for other companies to follow suit.

While an official release date is yet to be announced, the price is rumoured to be around the $100 mark. The line starts here.
