    The best iPad accessory EVER!!!

    Well, John and I are at the r3play gaming expo in Blackpool, and it's great. Retro arcade machines, modern consoles and the best add-on for an iPad ever, and I mean ever. If you have 175 to spare and want to turn you iPad into a Mame console then this is the product for you. Called the 1UP from Freekade (1UP Arcade Machines | freekade) it links a small arcade style cab and controls with Blu-tooth to talk to your jailbroken (has to be jailbroken I'm afraid) ipad and in seconds you are ready to rock and roll with some great 80's arcade action. I had to be dragged off it in the end

    Didn't see any of those Arthur, but saw something similar with a little PC inside it, and a modern Arcade Machine that defo had an XP PC running it as the exe that was running it had crashed DB has a photo of that as he had a real camera with him where as I just had my phone

    It was a great weekend, shame we didn't have a bit of a gathering as it was great and a good time was had

    I would love to have one of these little arcade machines, but it's extremely hard to justify when you already have a modded Xbox with tons of console emulators installed.
