You're probably not looking forward to your bro-in-law's overcompensating bearlike handshake, nor his customary invite to the local pub for a game of foosball and a cold one or 10. You can knock out at least half that grim equation with this clever dock that turns an iPad into a portable gaming table, complete with all the rod-spinning and ball-banking you would expect from an actual game of foosball. Some of its high-tech bells and whistles include the option to customize player uniforms and watch field-level replays, like your game-winning bicycle kick to the soundtrack of a roaring crowd and bro-in-law totally losing his shit.
