ThinkGeek fooled some of us with their iCade April Fool’s joke, but the Pinball Magic “[app]cessory” from New Potato Technologies seems to be legit. You connect your iPhone/touch’s docking connector to the pinball-machine frame from New Potato and download the free Pinball Magic app from iTunes and turn your iPhone or touch into a realistic pinball machine – albeit a tiny one. The frame has flashing LED lights and classic controls: a ball launching plunger, flipper buttons, and credit/select button. There’s multiple playboard layouts, multi-level and multi-player modes, and more. The Pinball Magic [app]cessory is $39.99 from New Potato Technologies and it should be available soon – the website says August 2010.
