DIY iPad Arcade...98% Complete
Though I have to give props to the guy who made the first one, (He was definitely fast...) I prefer something with a little more...durability. Basically if my cat can accidentally destroy it, it ain't gonna fly... Thus I give you the humble beginnings of my iPad arcade. http://www.linkreincarnate.com/2010/06/ipad-arcade.html.
So I finished everything I am going to do to this case (except for having a skilled artist paint it).
I also added a VERY cool last minute feature.
Link to the videos!
The full feature list of the Ultimate iPad Arcade is now as follows.
Full Wii compatibility.
Built in Speakers.
High quality tournament level fightstick.
Built in projector.
Landscape and portrait modes now supported (requires case).
Hinged top for easy access.
Quick release for fast stick replacement.
Spacious interior (you could fit a whole Wii in there...*snicker*)
Okay so maybe that last part isn't a feature so much as an opinion but damnit I'm gonna list it!
Video of the controls in action!

Apple is losing out on a FORTUNE by not making ones of these for retail......
I put some more pics up for anyone who is interested...
Linkreincarnate: iPad Arcade Construction 98% Complete
I just need to wire things up and maybe secure those speakers somehow. I'll post a video after I finish it up. I'm mulling over throwing a projector into the bottom facing out from the back. One of those on a coffee table facing a blank wall would be kinda epic...
I would buy one of these in a flash. Even a friend at work, who has no interest in the iPad, would buy one if he could turn it into a mini arcade
YAY Classic controller support CONFIRMED
Zottd the guy who makes the nes for iphone and snes for iphone emulators has announced that he is adding Classic controller support in the next update!!! This means that I'm done with wiring controllers after all. (I kinda destroyed a few wii remotes in the process. (oh well my wii broke down anyway, not like I'll miss them too much) I'll paint that sucker up and when he releases the next update I'll post my video of the machine in action. Also a tutorial on how to build one yourself...If you take out some features it can be really cheap...

Shameless bump but with justification. If you didn't notice I had a major update just scroll up. Or if you're that lazy that you don't like to scroll then just click.
Wow. Excellent. Wish I was even remotelycapable of such a feat.
I think I would skip the projector, but other than that, it's pretty much perfect. The thought of playing Zelda lttp, super Mario world, street fighter 2 etc on at......
