The iCade cabinet perhaps had its humble beginnings in the form of an April Fool’s joke, but it seems that the folks at Freekade took it seriously by coming up with this unique arcade cabinet that houses an actual Apple iPad within to offer slate gaming with old school controls to boot. It isn’t exactly the finished form just yet by being in the prototype stage, which is why its exterior is rather boxy in terms of design although we’re sure you wouldn’t really mind when it comes to being enthralled by the games you play. For a purpose such as this, one of the iPad’s strength certainly comes into play – we’re talking about its battery life that can last quite a distance.
