Beginnings

Sandb acquired some kiosk stands discarded by his employer. They look ideally suited to make Arcade Machine.

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?).
