Last weekend, I finished the arcade cabinet I discussed here:
I’m really happy with how it came out.
I put an old monitor and a raspberry pi (running retropie) in it. I can now play lots of old nostalgic games. I introduced my kids to several games I used to play as a kid. They’re comment was “your games were different than ours, but they are still fun”.
I designed it so that all the parts for it would fit on a GF bed. Although I cut it at the local maker space.
Here’s the front and back views.
There is a panel that goes on the back, but it is not in place right now.
There’s also a panel under the joysticks (so I can slide the keyboard out). There’s also a small panel on the left side, so I can access the USB ports of the Raspberry Pi.
It was a really fun project.
