Building A Low Cost Retro Arcade Cabinet

I love retro gaming, my collection of old consoles will testify to that but there has always been one thing that I’ve never had the opportunity to own due to the ever increasing price tags they carry – the arcade cabinet.

So a challenge was been set to build a low cost arcade cabinet that will be based around a kit similar to the components of First Coding’s Retro Gaming kit. The kit contains a Raspberry Pi Zero which will be perfect and the SD card provided runs Retropie with arcade games already loaded onto it, so it is perfect for a project such as this and a great build to kick this blog off. Be sure to follow the cabinet’s progress here on the First Coding blog.
