"8-Bitty" Bluetooth Gamepad, in case you didn't already know, rules. Besides the fact that they have a gazillion different tech/geek/nerd items available to the savvy spaz for purchase, most of their products won't break the bank, wilt your wallet or chomp your change like some other gadgety stores (cough, cough - Brookstone and Sharper Image). Plus they looove retro stuff like this super-awesome Bluetooth-enabled Nintendo-styled gamepad for your iPhone, iPad, iPod or Android device.

Dig it:
  • Classic retro-styled game controller fits in your pocket and works with iPhone & iPad
  • 8 button control including 4 face buttons, select, start, and two shoulder buttons... plus the D-Pad for movement
  • Wireless Bluetooth® connection with auto power save mode
  • Mini version of larger size iCade cabinet invented and designed by ThinkGeek
  • Fully compatible with all iCade games
  • Completely open development platform. App developers can add support for iCade with no permission needed from Apple or ThinkGeek. (See links for code examples below).
  • "Atari Greatest Hits" iPad App ready to go with the iCADE, including support for over 100 classic Atari games.
  • Atari App comes with Missile Command for free, other games available for in-app purchase. 3-game packs are $1. All 100 games are $14.99
  • Compatible with iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch. Android support for most tablets and smartphones.
  • NOTE: Atari Greatest Hits only runs on iPad, not on iPhone or iPod touch.
