Travis Reynolds’ Briefcase Arcade:
This project came about in an odd way. Where I work, we have an arcade club. Basically, a group of guys get together and play old school video games. The only problem is I am the only guy in the club that has an arcade we can use. So, after getting tired of hosting the arcade club every time we wanted to play, I started thinking about how to make an arcade portable. I finally arrived at the conclusion to make one into a briefcase. Also, I watched Iron Man 2 and saw Tony Stark put the Iron Man suit into one, so I figured I could put an arcade into one.
