LAS VEGAS Last year, Ion Audio released the iCade, an arcade cabinet for the iPad that at first was a joke made by ThinkGeek.com. While it began as an April Fool's gag, demand was no joke, turning it into one of the most recognizeable gaming accesssories for the iPad. Ion Audio is now expanding it into an entire line of mobile gaming products.
The iCade Jr. is just that: a junior version of the iCade. It's an arcade cabinet for a smartphone, not an iPad. Because it's much smaller, it could be seen as a novelty device, but Ion Audio added a set of back buttons to serve as additional ways to control games, and to let users hold the cabinet like a gamepad.
