Steampunk-Inspired Monster Arcade Cabinet

 |  |  |  |  |  |  September 29, 2009

Arcade cabinets are just cool–there’s no way around that. However, when they’re built completely from the ground up, in a whole nifty steampunk motif, complete with a little touch of Frankenstein? Then they even make that ol’ Pac-Gentleman look… okay, that’s still pretty incredible, too.

It plays games! It plays music! It’s equipped with Edison electric light, so don’t try to use a match on it! That’s what the warning label says, anyway, and it seems like sound advice. Though it’s always tempting to torch Frankenstein’s monster.


Dedicated builder Doug Haffner has documented the entire experience on a website, and if you want to watch a great deal of Lost – that’s apparently how he kept himself entertained whilst carving and fitting – you too can produce your own monster arcade machine.
