As a kid growing up, I was a big fan of video games. I came across a slew of DIY forums that explained how enthusiasts were building their own arcade cabinets and playing thousands of classic games on them.
I got to work on a design that would have a smaller footprint but still evoke the classic stand up 80’s vibe. The electronics, consisting of Raspberry Pi 3, a control board, buttons and a ton of wiring are all contained within the main control deck to keep it tidy. A back lit marquee, sound and faux working coin door all add to the authenticity and experience.
The cabinet ships flat and is assembled with no major tools required. Future plans are small production runs and crowd funding to bring the product to a niche market of retro super fans.
