Brains

Small linux box with MAME can easily fit into the bottom cabinet with room to spare.

Screen

We need measurements for fitting an LCD in the opening. A custom bezel may be needed.

Controls

We need some brainstorming on what kind of controls we want on the panel.

Controller options:

  • Buy one
  • Hack a keyboard
  • Build a keyboard emulating thingamajad (arduino?)

Speakers

Low-quality speakers for playing 8-bit music are needed. We should hide them somewhere (bottom of the controls panel?).
