And now on to something completely different…
One project that I have always been wanting to do but never really found the time or space, has been to create a full-size arcade cabinet. I decided to get started this summer, and it is now done.
I have seen many similar projects, some of which I thought were really nice. I wanted the main features of my own cabinet to be:
– Floor-standing, genuine-looking cabinet, with a real CRT and coin slots
– Raspberry PI running the ‘RetroPie’ on Raspbian
– Power sequencing with a single power switch like a ‘real’ console.
Here’s some pictures of the initial cabinet contruction using 16mm MDF. The different panels are glued together to avoid any visible screws.
