GameDock Turns Your iPhone into a Gaming Console

 |  |  |  |  |  |  July 6, 2012


The iCade series will add an arcade gaming controller to your iOS devices, but maybe that isn’t good enough for you. It wasn’t good enough for Chris Jorgensen and Andi Greisel either, so they started a Kickstarter project to fund an interesting alternative solution.

The GameDock is obviously inspired by the original Nintendo Entertainment System. It’s basically a dock for your iPhone, iPod, or iPad that connects to your TV via HDMI, and comes with one retro USB controller that plugs into the dock. Now you can use the TV to play all your favorite classic games larger and play your mobile games on a big screen.

The dock is also a charger for your iPhone. Over 100 games are already supported (the same ones supported by iCade), and yes you can add a second classic controller. They are looking to raise $50,000 to buy materials in order to make the hardware affordable to manufacture and offer at a reasonable price. The software is updatable and the hardware uses Bluetooth to link to the phone. If you’re interested in getting your hands on one, head over to Kickstarter and pledge at least $150.
