Make Your Own Arcade

Re-live the glory days of gaming with this DIY Kit inspired by retro arcade games. The kit comprises all the pieces you need to build your own mini arcade setup, with 10 buttons, a joystick, and built-in speakers to emulate the feel of classic games. Pre-loaded with game simulators, it allows you to play classics from Atari, Gameboy, Nintendo, and much more—all you have to do is build the arcade, hook up your Raspberry Pi, and plug into a TV to start gaming. The whole structure is housed in tough acrylic for a durable look and feel straight out of a vintage arcade.

Note: This kit does not include a Raspberry Pi. At checkout, you can add a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B (+ $35), the SainSmart ES120 rechargeable screwdriver (+ $89.99), and the SainSmart Pro 32-piece soldering tool set (+ $59.99).
