finally complete... TRON inspired iCade

on Sunday, March, 02, 2014 7:26 AM
Greetings programs!

It took far too many cycles to get this project complete, but I'm finally done. I've completed a TRON themed iCade.

For those that don't know, the iCade is an accessory for the Apple iPad that adds real arcade controls and is supported by quite a few games (including MAME, which means you could run the actual TRON arcade game through this). The original iCade looks like this:


My new iCade looks like this:







There a quite a few improvements. Besides the new control scheme (joystick on the right), it features light up buttons & joystick, integrated iPad charger (for both dock connector & lightning connector), custom side art, and each button's color is user configurable (via an access panel & jumpers).

What does everyone think?


You can see more pictures, including some of the 'making of' pictures, on my website http://mods.xkill.net.

Very cool! Though as a righty, I'm not sure if I'd classify "joystick on the right" as an improvement. (I'm guessing you're left-handed?) It looks fantastic, though, and I can only imagine how much work went into it.

Actually, I am a righty.

Think of classic Atari joysticks... the button is on the left. That's how I learned how to play, so that's the only thing that feels right to me.

It's really too bad you can't play Space Paranoids on the iPad. That would be amazing to do with that accessory.
