For my first post I thought I would share my experience of building a Picade machine.
Materials this project requires:-
This project has been on the back burner for a couple of months now, ever since I came across the Picade kit in the store, and when someone at my work showed me their arcade console. Though it wasn’t until another colleague at work had a bike delivered to the office, when the idea crystallised in my mind to make a bar top arcade machine out of the left over cardboard box.
Who knew that bikes would use so much packaging. It is double walled 5mm thick cardboard. My plan so far is to laser cut the cabinet out of this and double up all the surfaces so that it will end up being 10mm thick to provide strength.
Also I had this old Samsung 22" TVwith HDMI input, which I have dissembled to become the screen.
Next tasks which need to be completed:-
Update will be posted here once I have completed more of this project.
Thank you for reading, if you have any suggestions advice then I am all ears.
