Icade. Awesome retro goodness for iOS and Android

I got this last Christmas and I am still digging it. This nifty cabinet brings back wonderful 80s retro-style nostalgia. Designed for iPad, it also works for Android devices. You can get it from ThinkGeek.

Here is is with a Galaxy Nexus.

And a $99 HP Touchpad running CM7 (also works with ICS). Street Fighter!

Many iOS games need to be designed for the ION icade controller. I have a couple of favorites including AirAttack HD and Atari Greatest Hits.

However, the most important game is iMame4all (
Imame4all for both iOS and Android support the icade. The controls work off simple bluetooth. It takes regular AA batteries and it runs for months.

Dig Dug, Defender, Missile Command, Frogger, Street Fighters. Yes, this brings back a lot of great childhood memories.
