iCade for Apple iPad

If you want to play games on the Apple iPad then perhaps one of these funky cabinets should be on your shopping list. Each is designed to dock the iPad on the front and provides old style arcade controls to play games on such as Donkey Kong.

To get the iCade working for iPad you need to download a free application on your iPad that allows it to interface with the cabinet. Once installed you simply dock your Apple iPad and load up the application. Full specifications can be found after the jump.

On a sad note you might notice it’s April 1st… so unfortunately it is just a joke although if you are interested in ThinkGeek actually selling it just let them know and they might eventually consider it if enough interest is gained.
