The iCade started out as an April Fools joke last year, but not long after we got word that ThinkGeek was actually going to bring the iPad arcade cabinet to life. And now, the device is almost ready to ship.
Not only that, the Atari’s Greatest Hits app has been configured to work with the iCade, so there will be 100 retro games to play right out of the box. ThinkGeek will also be releasing an API for other developers wishing to bake-in iCade compatibility. The device works with both the original iPad and the iPad 2.
The iCade is scheduled to ship on May 20th. Pre-orders are available now.
