Do you often find yourself reminiscing about the many hours spent at the local arcade playing Galaga and Star Fighter? Well, standing at a little over a foot tall, the Picade is your next (and greatest) desktop toy that will fill your retro-void! This kit converts your boring old Raspberry Pi in to a stylish, retro, miniature arcade with ease.

Compatible with the Raspberry Pi 3, 2, B+, and A+, the Picade is able to bring all of your favorite retro arcade games to your fingertips once again! There are several versions of this kit, but this one looks most like a traditional mini-arcade console. Please note that the Raspberry Pi and Power Adapter are not included and are essential to operate this device. Now, to quote Mr. Pitt, "What's in the Box???"


This kit comes with:
[Black powder-coated cabinet panels,
Picade PCB (Arduino compatible with stereo 2.8W amplifier) pre-loaded with the Picade software,
LCD panel mount with protective overlay,
8" LCD panel and driver board,
Two speakers wire wires pre-soldered,
3.5mm stereo panel mounted headphone socket,
Attractive decals for the marquee and controls,
HDMI, audio, and USB cables,
A proper arcade joystick,
Twelve micro-switch arcade buttons,
Custom assembled wiring looms,
All other fixings, fasteners, nuts, and bolts.

Assembly time for this kit can range from 2-4 hours, depending on your comfortability with Raspberry Pi.

I bought one of these and put it together. It's an awesome kit and I was really impressed by the quality of it. Everyone who sees it immediately wants one. It does not include the RP3, the power cable, or the SD card and thumb drive you'll need to run the emulator. Other than that, it's awesome. Very high quality and sturdy. I used the video instruction to put it together and it was straight-forward. Probably took me about 3.5 hours to get it fully up and running (including installing RetroPie/Emulation Station and downloading some games). Any specific questions?

$190 for a one-foot "mini-arcade?" Seriously?
