Whether you love video games or not, there’s no doubt that games like Halo and Dead Space feature some incredible artwork to breathe life into the make-believe worlds populated by crazed gamers looking for thrills.

The Xbox Surface probably won’t look anything like this.
Think your new iPad mini’s the perfect tablet for gaming on the go? Well it may have some stiff competition ahead.

The Halopad is — not surprisingly — an iPad stand in the shape of a halo.

It’s simple, it’s cheap, and it’s not ugly.
