Your Daily Game Plan
iCade brings joystick-controlled retro video games to your iPad
Those newfangled tablets can do everything from ordering dinner to launching a satellite into orbit. But they're missing one thing that's vital to your happiness -- a phallic-shaped joystick.
Turn your space-age iPad into a retro gaming machine with ThinkGeek's iCade. It houses the iPad inside a mini-arcade-style cabinet and allows you to control it via joystick. Plus, it let's you play games the way they're supposed to be -- with indiscriminate button mashing.
And since iTunes offers super-cheap downloads of classic Atari games, you'll be shooting asteroids and assassinating centipedes until mom stops by with some SunnyD.
Small enough to store in the corner of even the coziest crib, iCade can be set atop a desk to create a convenient and authentic home arcade gaming experience. So slide your iPad into a box made of fake wood paneling. Then transport yourself to that joyfully simple era when your life was dominated by quarter-slots, sour worms and pimple popping.
