IPad Arcade Cabinet: From Prank to Product

I’m sure most of you who saw ThinkGeek’s iCade April Fools’ prank wished it was real. Your wish is about to be granted! The folks at Freekade make tiny arcade cabinets for a living, so it’s not that hard for them to turn the iCade into a real product.

It’s clearly still a work in progress, hence the raw look.

The game you saw in the video is actually running in the iPad, but if you ask me, I’d be more excited if Freekade makes it so you could map the controls to any game or app. That would be an awesome way to play Street Fighter or Pro Evo on the iPad.
