This would have been awesome
Easily the best April Fool’s joke of the day is ThinkGeek’s iCade for iPad. At a price of only 149 imaginary dollars , I actually think it was underpriced.
Pretty much the only thing the iPad is missing (aside from Flash, a camera, and USB) is a way to sink MORE MONEY into it. I would have loved to experience the nostalgic thrill of dropping quarters into this thing in order to play all the horrible games from my childhood, starting with Adventure for the Atari 2600, then running through Night Stalker from my Intellivision, and then, assuming I had $250 left in quarters, I would play (and still not beat) Dragons Lair.
Thanks to faithful Macenstein reader Florian for the tip!
