Raspberry Pi Micro Arcade Machine Packs Gaming into a Tiny Case

While it might be more practical to build a full-size MAME cabinet for your retro gaming enjoyment, this tiny and fully functional build is a great example of the fun you can have tinkering with electronics. Read on to see a video of it in action.

Courtesy of tinker and electronics hobbyist Sprite over at SpriteMods, the build is clever in so many ways. The heart of the device is a Raspberry Pi board, it includes a tiny video marque that displays the logo of whatever game you’re playing, and the micro-scaled joystick and buttons are fully functional.

When he's not documenting mods and hacks he's doing his best to make sure a generation of college students graduate knowing they should put their pants on one leg at a time and go on to greatness, just like Bruce Dickinson.
