Remember the iCade
, the iPad-powered arcade cabinet with which ThinkGeek buoyed our nerdy hopes on April Fool's Day, only to crush them thereafter? Well, OhGizmo!'s Andrew Liszewski
confirms from CES that it has become an actual, real product, thanks to ION Audio and Atari, that it "feels just fantastic," equipped with more buttons than the original ThinkGeek mockup, and that it will be coming soon for $100.
The arcade action starts with the retro-gaming classic Asteroids and continues with many other Atari arcade titles. In addition to the extensive Atari library, new and existing apps can be easily updated to work with iCADE. Grab hold of iCADE's full-sized joystick and smash the eight arcade buttons for commanding control of iPad's on-screen action.
If the iCade has you involuntarily salivating, also check out ThinkGeek's JOYSTICK-IT, a wireless, battery-less joystick for iPads and other tablet devices.
