[CES 2011] Guess dreams do come true after all for some people, right? What was originally a prank idea has been turned into reality, thanks to the people at Ion. We’re talking about the iCADE arcade cabinet that will specially house the iPad, turning it into an authentic, arcade-style cabinet complete with the usual joystick and eight arcade buttons to have you gaming almost right out of the box. Hopefully it will be able to withstand the rigors of hardcore gamers and those button mashers as it doesn’t look too stable when we tried giving it a go (without a working iPad, just wiggling the joystick and mashing those buttons). It would be interesting to see whether Ion can come up with a universal iCADE down the road, considering the number of tablets unveiled this CES that are powered by Android. Would you fork out $99 for this, or make one yourself?
