Tiny Arcade: Pym’s Arcade

 |  |  |  |  |  |  November 23, 2015


We’ve seen how you can use a Game Boy or a Raspberry Pi to create a palm-sized arcade machine. If you’d rather go straight to squinting and playing, TinyCircuits has just the thing for you.

The Tiny Arcade is based on TinyCircuits’ Tiny-Duino, an Arduino-compatible computer and expansion boards that are all about the size of a quarter and can be stacked on top of each other. It measures 2.95”x1.57”x1.26” and has a 32-bit ARM CPU, a 0.96″ 96×64 OLED display, a 140mAh battery, a magnetic speaker, two buttons and a joystick. Its cabinet comes in acrylic, 3D printed plastic or wood. If you choose the wooden cabinet you’ll need to glue its parts together, while the acrylic and plastic parts simply snap in place.

The Tiny Arcade is pre-loaded with clones of popular games such as Space Invaders, Flappy Bird and Doom. You can load more games as well as videos via USB or using a microSD card.

Pledge at least $60 (USD) on Kickstarter to receive a Tiny Arcade DIY kit as a reward, or at least $75 for an assembled machine. If you can do without the speaker you can turn this into an arcade wristwatch.
