A retro arcade machine that fits in your pocket.

Years ago I built a multiple arcade machine emulator in an old Bubble Bobble cabinet.  It was a delightfully nostalgic experience, but it was also kind of big and heavy.

Not so the Tiny Arcade.

This beautiful little project comes as a kit or a fully built micro arcade cabinet. The whole thing is incredibly small and yet is completely playable with a tiny built in analog joystick and two buttons.

Looks like this project is fully funded on kickstarter and they’ve started with pre-orders.

If you like the idea of assembling it yourself they sell for $ 60, while the preassembled version goes for $ 75.  Double that for the premium 3d printed cabinet.

I’d be interested to get my hands on one of these to see how ‘playable’ they actually are, but I love the idea.

These are built around Tiny Circuits super-small tinyduino platform.  To find out more check out the kickstarter page.
