Retro Console Converters
The iOS GameDock Turns Your iDevice Into an Old School System

By: Katherine Vong (Superstar) Jul 16, 12

Designers Chris Jorgensen and Andi Greisel are attempting to turn the gaming market on its head with their creation, the iOS GameDock. The iOS GameDock is essentially a docking station that converts an iDevice like an iPhone or iPad into a traditional gaming console.

Currently being funded via Kickstarter, the GameDock will make your iDevice TV-ready through an HDMI output, and you can plug in its modified versions of NES game controllers via the docking station’s USB ports.

The docking station seems like a natural move for the gaming industry, what with all the retro games resurfacing for Apple’s iOS. What’s more, as Wired points out, the iOS GameDock also allows for simultaneous two-player games, something that is unprecedented in the iOS gaming world.
