All I can say is wow! Arcade-style gaming with iPad! When I first saw the iCade, a rush of joyful remembrance passed through my mind as I recalled the hours playing Atari arcade games. At first I thought it was a joke when I received the Twitter feed from Tony Hawk that introduced me to the iCade. Well, apparently, it was originally a joke spun by Think Geek and then brought to life by its creator, ION Audio. There is definitively something enticing about the combination of a nostalgic video game and Apple's leading edge of technology.

You will find that the iCade even has a $.25 coin slot, but don't worry, you won't have to pile in rolls of quarters into the game as many of us had done in previous decades. Now you can play Battlezone, Missile Command, Asteroids, Centipede, Galaga and many others in the comfort of your home or office.

The iCade is a classic video game looking cabinet that safely holds your iPad and connects it to the video game controls of the cabinet via bluetooth. The iCade is compatible with over 100 old school Atari Greatest Hits games and other games will be developed through an API to be released allowing any iOS developer to create iCADE-compatible games. The cabinet has a joystick and 8 quality arcade style buttons. The buttons are a little cramped but they are quality and do really give you the feel of those classic arcade games from times past. With dimensions of 16 in. X 10 in. X 9.5 in., the iCade was built so that you can set in on a table top for hours of fun.The cabinet is solidly built and has gripping rubber foot pads to keep the unit stable during game play.

When you recieve your icade, you will need to assemble it and install the included two AA size batteries. The batteries power the blue tooth and the coin slot that blinks when the batteries are getting low. The iCade is totally wireless and you can feed your iPad connector cable through the bottom of the case to your power source. You can opt to purchase an A/C adapter from ION to power the iCade in place of using batteries.

The iCade retails for approximately $99.00 at most of the retailers that carry it. Your friends, family and co-workers will be impressed with iCade's great-looking retro design, and then challenge them for high-scores on the most entertaining iPad accessory imaginable!
