Be Your Inner Mogwai, Build a ‘Pi Score MAME Cabinet’ | #3Dprinting #RaspberryPi #gremlins

With a nod to the shape and design of the retro Donkey Kong arcade toy from the early 80s that was featured in Gremlins (1984; from a scene which in turn became its own Kotobukiya toy!), Jeremy Williams and Sean Charlesworth recreated the cabinet, only now you can use a Raspberry Pi 3, MAME software, and a slew of other tech including some Adafruit hardware (thanks for making the wishlist – that’s really convenient!).

Here’s a ‘grab from the Gremlins scene:

And the original Donkey Kong cabinet and replicated Pi Score 3D-printed case:

Along with a look at the inside:
