Coffee Table Arcade Features Hide-Away Controls

This clever coffee-table-as-arcade build features a roll-away controller hidden in a drawer beneath it, a large flush-mounted screen, and an actual arcade board serving up the games.

While many DIY arcade builders opt to include a mini-computer inside to emulate arcade games, this build includes the Jamma 60-in-1 PCB arcade board–it’s like a supercharged version of the actual boards inside classic arcade games.

Hit up the link below for more photos of the build and additional details.

Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.

    It’s nice, but where do you sit so you can play it? Where does 2UP sit?
