What began life as an April Fool's Day joke is now a real product at CES 2011. This is Ion Audio and Think Geek's iCade, the mini arcade cabinet for your iPad.

The iCade was on display and working at CES, playing a pretty good Asteroids, one of the games that currently supports the SDK. The iCade uses Bluetooth to connect to the iPad and runs on batteries — so no charging of that iPad sadly.

iCade will set iPad owners back $99 USD when it ships this year. Fred will tell you more about it in the video above.
