ThinkGeek transformed yet another April Fools' joke gadget into a real product. In 2010 ThinkGeek announced the iCade iPad Arcade Cabinet as an April Fools' joke and now you can actually buy one. You can pre-order the iCade for $99.99 now on ThinkGeek and it will ship around May 20th.

A year ago the iCade was already a cool idea. Now with Atari Greatest hits available for the iPad the iCade is a no brainer for retro gamers. To use the iCade, gently slide the Apple iPad into the cradle. The iCADE uses Bluetooth to connect to the iPad so there's nothing else you need to do.

Features of the iCade:

  • Beautifully retro-styled tabletop arcade cabinet for your otherwise useless iPad
  • iPad connects to the iCADE controls via Bluetooth
  • "Atari Greatest Hits" iPad App ready to go with the iCADE, including support for over 100 classic Atari games.
  • Atari App comes with classic Pong for free, other games available for in-app purchase. 3-game packs are $1. All 100 games are $14.99
  • API to be released later allowing any iOS developer to create iCADE-compatible games.
  • Compatible with both the original iPad and iPad 2

Pre-order the iCade now before it is sold out on ThinkGeek.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
