The iCade is an arcade cabinet designed for the iPad.
Originally, the idea to turn a modern device into a retro gaming system was an April Fool's joke, but the concept turned out to be so popular that it was developed and set into production.
Available for $99.99 to U.S. and Canadian customers, this product works by sliding an iPad in to a docking station, where the iCade connects to the device using Bluetooth technology.
Over 2600 titles from Atari are available through a suite download, whereas an accompanying app allows a user to download and purchase from a selection of 100 games. It is compatible with the iPad and iPad 2 models.
What do you give an Apple fan for her birthday? An iPad, of course.
Stefan Magdalinski, CEO of Multiply.com, decided to give his girlfriend an iPad for her birthday. At that point in time, it was unavailable in South Africa where they lived, so it had to be smuggled back from London. But rather than simply wrapping it, why not freeze an iPad in chocolate carbonite? Magdalinski enlisted the help of friends who ran a chocolate business and were willing to give it a go.
For those that wonder, it did manage to survive the process.
A world away from bones and chew toys, the iPad's interface can be used to play with your beloved pets. In the video below, an owner decides to have a game of air hockey with their dog.
