Trekkies, your iPad is going to thank you for outfitting it with this
awesome iPad sleeve. Not only will this accessory keep your tablet safe
from harm, but it will also make it look like it just came out of a Deep
Space Nine episode. It features double-backed layers of neoprene both
on the outside and inside.
Or if you are more into retro gaming, this iPad 2 protective pouch might
be the one to pick. Its design is inspired by the all-familiar
mushrooms from the Super Mario video game, and if that does not suit

lovable, fuzzy monster. And its furry arms don’t only look cute, but can
be also used to clean the iPad’s display from finger smudge.
Think of the Atari Arcade Duo as a cheaper alternative to the iCADE
. With its physical joystick and buttons, it lets you relive those
nostalgic moments of playing classic Atari games, such as the ones that

from the ‘80s. Furthermore, the accessory is tailor made for the Atari
Greatest Hits app, which features 100 of the company’s most recognized
Here is another cool gaming accessory that works on the iPad, this time
with a more modern look. The 60beat game controller features 10 action
buttons and two analog sticks for total game control in even the most
intense moments. But what is really unique about this iPad accessory is
that it connects to the tablet via its 3.5-millimeter headphone jack and
it requires no batteries to run.
Okay, this DIY docking station, appropriately named iPhonograph, may not
