Fully functional micro arcade machine using a Raspberry Pi model B or B+.
I always wanted a tiny arcade machine for my desk, I decided to build it as small as possible. It may look simple from the outside but a lot of engineering went into building it. After months of development and 8 printed prototypes later, its finally ready. I decided to post the build steps here and links to the 3D printed parts so anyone can build one for themselves.
3D printed parts are available in more colors, check the link below.
Painting instructions are optional, you can paint it anyway you want.
Check out the full tutorial here.

NTSC/PAL (Television) TFT Display – 2.5″ Diagonal: Yes, this is an adorable small television! The visible display measures only 2.5″ (6.35cm) diagonal, the TFT comes with a NTSC/PAL driver board. The display is very easy to use – simply connect 6-15VDC to the red and black wires, then connect a composite video source to the yellow and black wire. Voila, a television display! There’s one little button to adjust the LED backlight brightness up and down. There is no other adjustment available but we found that the color and contrast look great right out of the box.
