Raspberry Pi arcade cabinets are now very common, so something special is needed to stand out from the crowd, and the manufacturer JamHamster has met the challenge with impressive customization raspberry pie-Based on arcade machines, all-metal fashion and well-designed.

This project aims to use Raspberry Pi 3 B+ with a custom breakout board for controller input. Everything is housed in a custom shell made of metal material and comes with a glossy orange vinyl packaging.
The device weighs about one pound, but due to its sticky feet, it does not move too much during use. The joystick is even equipped with an 8 mm ball bearing, which must be drilled to be screwed into place. Move the joystick to press the momentary switch on the controller board, and then some clever codes convert the input to control the game. There are also holes that can be used not only for custom metal buttons, but also for earphones and ports for connecting to the screen. On the back, we also see three other buttons for starting, selecting and locking the power switch. JamHamster also succeeded in turning a failure into a victory, and an improperly measured headphone drill was converted to a 9-pin Atari controller input.
this The best Raspberry Pi project It looks good, but don’t spend an arm and a leg. According to JamHamster, the cabinet needs materials worth about $88—or 75 pounds in the UK. In addition to the Raspberry Pi, he also needs a 100mm aluminum tube and a 6mm board that bends to form the control panel and screen frame.The complete breakdown of the machining and drilling process is recorded here Twitter topic.
