Over the years we have featured an number of DIY gaming acrade cabinets here on Geeky Gadgets but never anything quite as small as the one created by SpiritMods using a $35 Raspberry Pi mini PC.
The fantastic miniaturised gaming arcade is equipped with a tiny 128×32 white OLED to display, which looks awesome displaying the logo of the game currently being played.
Everything in the Raspi is set up to be completely seamless when switching between games, automatically configuring the controls and marquee for the currently selected game.”-” The build uses a Raspi for all the Linux-ey and MAME goodness, but [Sprite_tm] didn’t want to fiddle around with the HDMI or analog video output. Instead, he chose to use an SPI-controlled TFT display that is only 2.4 inches across.
For more information jump over to the Hack-a-day website for full details and more videos of the creation. If you liked this you might also be interested in our essential guide to Raspberry Pi displays and HATS.
