Raspberry Pi Micro Arcade Machine: A Sweet Slice of Classic Gaming

by Lambert Varias

A couple of weeks ago we saw a Kickstarter fundraiser for a desktop arcade machine based on the Raspberry Pi. It turns out that hacker and tinkerer Jeroen Domburg has already made a tinier, yet also functional machine based on the same computer.

Wow. So many wonderful features in such a tiny package. I think it’s as small, if not smaller, than the Space Invader cabinet we saw a while back, but this one runs MAME so it can run tons of classic (and not-so-classic) games. It has a transparent cabinet made from laser-cut acrylic, a 2.4″ LCD screen and an itty bitty OLED display up top that displays the logo of the game being played (if available). It runs on a Li-ion battery that can be recharged via USB.

This project is definitely not for beginners, but if you have the skills Domburg has posted a thorough step-by-step on his website.

    I had all kids of weird USB problems with the Raspberry Pi version 2 board.
    I stumbled across a site (rpips.com) that has an add on power supply for the Pi. I plugged that bad boy in and now I have zero power problems. I am running a USB passport drive, USB hub, wireless mouse, USB wireless adapter and keyboard all off of the PI’s USB ports. This is awesome!!!
