Build a Retro Arcade out of Shoe Box by @BlitzCityDIY

Liz of Blitz City DIY shared on YouTube:

Shoe Box RetroPie Console

I think using materials like cardboard and scraps of wood for building project enclosures is a great way to quickly prototype ideas. As Liz says in the end of her video, just because you don’t have access to tools like CNC’s and 3D printers doesn’t mean you shouldn’t start building projects.

I built a RetroPie console using a Raspberry Pi Zero W and an Adafruit Arcade Bonnet all comfortably housed in a shoe box decorated in 80s neon duct tape. This is a really easy project and housing, so I hope others will give it a try.
