This Kickstarter Project Will Help Turn Your iPhone Into An Old-School Nintendo

Vintage gaming junkies, take note – the GameDock is an accessory that turns your iPhone or iPad into a gaming console complete with old school NES-style controllers.

(We found this one on Cult Of Mac.)

It’s a simple truth that touch controls can be obnoxious for certain games. This is exactly the problem that the GameDock solves, giving you a tactile controller to hold in your hands while watching your game on a television screen.

The NES-style controllers connect to the GameDock via USB and the GameDock connects to your television via HDMI.

If you’re travelling, you can still use the GameDock without a television and play your games on the iPhone screen.

If this is up your alley, the GameDock team is raising money on Kickstarter right now — $150 will get you one.

Watch the pitch video below, then head over to the Kickstarter page to contribute.
