Hot Damn: Turn Your iPad into a Foosball Table

You kids today have everything.

Back in my day (early 2000), you had to drive to the Sportmart in the dodgy end of Tacoma, buy a $400 foosball table on your 18.9% interest rate credit card, use Diana’s El Camino to lug it back to the house you rented junior year with six other people, assemble it, derive an entire year of joy from it, then argue about who should lug it to the two-person apartment you rented senior year before giving it up and leaving it in the junior house for the next group of hoopleheads.

You kids today have it easy! All you need is an iPad and a hundred bucks. No driving to Sportmart, no El Camino, no spending $400 you don’t have, no leaving it behind because you can’t move it. Actually, it’s only $75 on Amazon. Again, you kids today have it easy.

Man, this thing even has field-level instant replay when you score goals, too. You kids today. You want for nothing.

You will all be amazed at how lifelike Classic Match Foosball for iPad is.  You CAN make spin shots, and you CAN play dubs.  There is English on the ball, and there is a satisfying "thunk" when you deliver the ball into your opponents goal.  The link below will take you to a special Living Social offer, where you can score Classic Match Foosball for iPad for $69!!

@thomasarato yes I have confirmed twitter is of no practical value other than for Nenshi who uses it to solicit donations and be "cool"

@parato Don't underestimate the value of something that makes geeks like you and me feel "cool"! :)

@thomasarato the only time I'm cool is when I unzip my ski jacket at the top of the ski lift in February
