    Back in April there was an April Fools joke revolving around something called an iCade which was an iPad in a mini acrcade console playing 80's video games.

    Using Arduino circuitry and cardboard, Hideyoshi Moriya has created an iPad Arcade prototype. The prototype is a fully functional with working controls.

    It is actually for sale at the same site that had the April Fools ad.
    Looks like fun but I am not sure it is worth $150.00.
    Still, I would love to have it as a dock in my office. :)

    You are right, I guess it was just wishful thinking on my part.:(
