Tardis Mame Cabinet Should be Called the “Tar-Cade” (but It’S Not)

 |  |  |  |  June 28, 2010


What could be better than a life-size TARDIS in your living room? I’ll tell you what. A life-size TARDIS in your living room with a retro arcade system built into it.

Sure, modder Simon Jansen probably had to do away with the TARDIS’ time-travel abilities in order to make way for all the arcade parts, but the end result is more than worth it.

The thing I really love about this build is that it looks just like the police call box from the show, but when you open it up, a complete set of arcade controls folds out. And not only do you get authentic arcade buttons, joysticks and a trackball, it’s designed to look like the controls inside Doctor Who’s TARDIS.
