Spice up your Apple iPad with the new iCade from ThinkGeek

Shaggy April 1, 2010 0

When a new gadget comes out that everyone has to have, that gadget only becomes cool when there is a way to turn it into a real arcade game. Such is the case with Apple’s new iPad, which by itself is just a bland, giant iPhone. But with the new iCade by ThinkGeek, the iPad suddenly becomes cool.After checking out these features, I wonder if it’s even worth running a real arcade anymore!

    You know that they’ll be pressured to make this just like they did with the Tauntaun sleeping bag they did last year (or the year before… don’t remember which).

    And just like that Tauntaun SB, people will buy it. I know I would because that is so awesome.
