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?
