Raspberry Pi Micro Arcade Machine Packs Gaming into a Tiny Case

By Jason Fitzpatrick on November 27th, 2012

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.

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.
