Construction of the Arcade Machine

Who doesn't want to play Pacman and Galaga?

August 09, 2019

I’ve wanted to build an arcade machine for a long time. I used to go to an arcade in my mall where I grew up until it closed. Then as an adult, the only arcades worth going to were the nickel arcades in order to save your wallet. So I decided to build my own arcade machine using a Raspberry Pi. I did this project back in 2017 when my wife and kids were out of town. I don’t have many pictures, but I do have a great time-lapse of my friend and I building it.

Next up for the machine, if I can get around to it, is to make it a bit more secure and steady, paint it, and get some decals printed for it.
