iPad + iCade = Asteroids!


An iPad and iCade cabinet from Ion Audio will take you back to the days when video games were played standing up with a roll of quarters in your pocket. Ion's iCade is a miniature version of the stand-up arcade games, complete with a sturdy joystick and trigger buttons.

Open the top of the iCade and slip in the iPad so the screen faces you like the TV screen on an arcade machine. The controls use use wireless Bluetooth technology to direct the action on the screen.

The case comes with a free download of a game from the Atari Greatest Hits app at the iTunes Store. The lineup includes Atari classics like Asteroids, Centipede, and Battlezone.

The iCade costs about $70 at amazon.com.
