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 warranty-voiding DIYer and all around geek. 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. You can follow him on if you'd like.
