Back on April Fools' Day there was a fake product post by ThinkGeek for a thing called iCade. This was an arcade cabinet for your iPad: you'd simply slide in your tablet and go to town with the joystick and buttons in this minicab. But, again, it wasn't real.

Now it is real. The Freekade arcade cabinet now has walnut sides, a black matte finish and real controls that interface with your iPad via Bluetooth. It is currently compatible with ines, isnes, snes4iphone and PSX4ALL, you jailbreakers.

The rig is currently up for auction on eBay, standing now at £122 with 18 bids and 8 days left.
