Go Back to the Arcade with the Pong-inspired OriginX Cabinet

by Shane McGlaun

Back in the day, most of the games in arcades were stand-up cabinets, but a few were sit down table style games. I don’t remember ever seeing wall mounted arcade games back in the day, but there are a handful of them available these days. Industrial designer Love Hulten is showing off a slick wall-mounted arcade machine that looks like it was transported from the early days of video games.

The OriginX looks like it came straight out of the arcade days because it’s an obvious homage to the original Pong cabinet from 1972. Inside the cabinet is a modern computer that has all the old games you might want to play, thanks to MAME. It can be customized to run the original JAMMA board of your choice though if you prefer to run with original hardware.

It has a 19-inch 4:3 LCD and a custom barrel distortion filter to mimic CRT monitors from the arcades of yore. The cabinet can be customized to your color desires and only 50 units will be made.  This thing is far from cheap, selling in Europe for €2,899 or about $3,400 (USD). There is no word on availability outside of Europe, but hopefully you’ll be able to buy one of these stateside if you’ve got deep enough pockets.
