Retro gamers planning on building their very own Raspberry Pi powered bar top arcade cabinet may be interested in this awesome build by Hackster.io member “ericBcreator” who has used a Raspberry Pi 2 model B mini PC loaded with RetroPie to create an awesome arcade joystick controlled game station that can be easily moved from one location to another. Check out the video below to learn more about the build and components required to make your very own in just over a day’s worth of work.
The creator of the Raspberry Pi Bartop Arcade Cabinet explains more about the project and has kindly published full instructions and details via the Hackster.io website available via the link below.
Here is a project I did a while ago: after seeing some videos and reading some articles about people using a Raspberry Pi to play retro games, I decided to build my own custom fullsize bartop arcade cabinet. I did some research and decided I would need a Raspberry PI 2B, an I-PAC 2 interface, to connect the joysticks and buttons, and RetroPie software as the main parts to make it work. For the cabinet I decided to order pre-cut MDF panels and acrylic sheets.
