New iCade models
Ion, the manufacturer of the first iCade, which started its conceptual life as an April fools joke, have released a few more models for Apple devices. Seen at the current CES show.
Below we have the iCade mobile (left) for iPhone and iPod touch. The device sits inside the iCade and connects by Bluetooth to give you that handheld gaming experience. The cost on this on is expected at around $80.
The iCade Core (right) is a stripped-down version of the original iCade. Communication is still via Bluetooth, but this will have the ability to charge your iPad in-situ.
Next up is the iCade Jr. This is a mini arcade machine, like the iCade, but for the iPhone. Again, the comms are by Bluetooth and there will be an integrated charging dock. Cost expected to be $50.
