Turning an iPad into an Atari Arcade

Boot Camp feature for Wednesday, September 21, 2011

Turning an iPad into an Atari Arcade.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.  There are thousands of games you can play on an iPad, but if you are nostalgic for the good old days,  Discovery Bay Games has come up with a docking station called the Duo that turns your tablet into an Atari Arcade.   CEO Craig Olson…

“The classic Atari games, which was launched in April of this year, were met with great enthusiasm.   I think over four million downloads to date.   But we noticed in the early comments and reviews that what was lacking was a controller.  And so at that point we had the Atari Arcade well into development and we’re really pleased to see that the product we’re developing would be met with enthusiasm.”

   The Atari Arcade Duo arrives next month, initially in Target stores for about sixty dollars.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
