know what you are thinking, WTF is this? Well, in a nutshell, it’s a PC housed in a wooden arcade cabinet about 30cm tall! This isn’t just any old micro PC though, it’s a Raspberry Pi 2 running Windows 10 IoT Core. The screenshot above shows a simple Universal Windows Platform game that I’ve recently developed. The game may look familiar to some of you…
Before we go into detail, let me just start by explaining why I did this. I’m showing my age here, but the first TV games console I ever played was the Binatone 01-4761, where me and my sister would use the “remote” paddles (attached by a long wire) to play pong (tennis) until our mum would shout at us. It was basic, but the hook was there for us to waste hours in front of the television.
