I really like retro games and there is this thing called retropie which turns your raspberry pi into an arcade machine. Since I have way too much time, I decided to built an arcade machine case out of wood with an old TV and analog sticks from Amazon. So yeah, I wired everything together and wanted to share it with you guys. I'm still searching for stickers to put on the top and on the joystick panel, but for now I really like the result. Tell me what you think!

    There is a USB hub to connect controllers for PlayStation games. There are also 2 buttons on each side for pinball games.

    @rutee07 Thanks! :D You could build a single player machine with just one set of buttons and a way smaller screen :P Maybe with a Powerbank as power supply, so it's portable? Who knows..

    @smb26 I thought about a original design like in the picture. I already searched for a picture to print out but I couldn't find one. Guess I'll search for a printing company, as you said ;)

    I made one too! This is a very cool project indeed.
    I made it as a gift for a friend of mine.
    The design of the side has been made by a designer friend.
    That was a great project

    Could varnish it. :-)

    Reminds me of my first PC case, I crafted out of old greengrocers boxes, being as I was too poor for a metal case !

    Do you have any good setup guide? We've built a console too, but was unable to configure both joysticks properly at the same time. Either worked correctly in the main menu or in the game and both joy1 and joy2 behaved differently although both being set up by the default automatic.

    @qwwerty I literally reconfigured the second stick 2 hours ago! This video helped https://youtu.be/2w6BQBL1P0s

    @Creep no stickers, this is a printed pixel art on vinyle.
