Rodocop's Mini Arcade Cabinet

Post by rodocop » Fri Oct 12, 2018 11:56 am

So I had a random 7" HDMI screen sitting around for ages, that I got off ebay for $20, finally found a great use for it. Printed this shell:

https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2966257

Put it all together, used the adafruit i2s hat and speaker suggested in the thingiverse post, and bought some arcade controls off amazon (nothing expensive, just a $25 set). It also houses a pi3 B+ and one of Helder's Retro PSU's with an 8000 mah battery.

Pretty happy with this, although, that back panel does not look to great, I will eventually get a better switch and re configure the placement of the charging port as well. I'll need to re print the back cover too. (i could not get the hinges to fit together, so I will try that again too.)

Otherwise, super cool, and I even printed a second controller for two player games. Here are a few pics.

Nice work, as always rodocop. Would you mind sharing how the 6 button config was mapped?

He meant the buttons themselves not just an annotated image

Yeah. I just figured it's pretty memorable for me. The 4 main button are set up like abxy on a SNES control, and the LR just went to the other 2.

If I had some 3d skills I could modify the button plate to show engraved lettering or something. Not tok concerned with that though.
