Available from artist Harold Sangouard (aka Harow), ARCADIA Arcade Cabinets are custom-made gaming cabinets with finishes chiseled from Calacatta marble. The photos here are just AI renders, but allegedly, Harold and team will chisel you a real one starting at least $100,000 and with a year lead time. Or maybe he’ll just take your money and run. At least, that’s what I would do.
If you had to pick an arcade game to be made in marble, what would you choose? That’s a tough call. I’d say my first choice would probably be Joust. Runners up include Street Fighter II and Mortal Kombat. You know what, I’ll take all three. I just can’t have them upstairs or they will rip through the floor and crash into the kitchen.
Could you imagine an arcade where all the machines are made of marble? I doubt it would just cost a quarter to play them. They’d probably all take $100 bills, and I do not have that kind of money. The only kind of money I have jingles when I walk.
