This Tiny Arcade Machine Holds a Raspberry Pi @Raspberry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi

This tiny desktop arcade is fully functionally thanks to a raspberry pi, from eetimes.

For many of us, there is a certain wonderful feeling that bubbles to the surface when we think of arcades. The many hours spent huddled around a game, pouring our hard-earned quarters into the machine. The shouts of frustration as your friends can’t beat your high score. The ridiculously sore fingers from mashing those buttons for far too long. Unfortunately, recapturing even a bit of that fun is difficult.

Steve Smith managed to come up with a great way to recapture a bit of his arcade fun. He decided to put an arcade cabinet on his desk. This itty-bitty arcade machine you see is fully functional and loaded with games. Housed inside the tiny cabinet is a Raspberry Pi loaded with Mame, an emulator for a game system.

This specific version of Mame is called PiMame and can emulate several different video gaming systems. You can find more information on PiMame here, if you want to run it on your Raspberry Pi.

  1. Thanks for the post! I am a major adafruit fan and I have no clue how I missed this in the blog! I contemplated showing it off on show & tell, but had a waynes world ‘i’m not worthy’ moment 🙂
