A Mini-Arcade powered by Raspberry Pi

I couldn't resist sharing this amazing mini-arcade project powered by a Raspberry Pi computer. In our portuguese mailing list there's been a lot of activity regarding the "making-of" of a full sized arcade machine powered by the small low-cost Raspberry Pi. But, let's face it... not everyone is willing - or has the space - to have a full sized arcade cabinet in their homes.

But with this tiny arcade... that's no longer an issue!

As you might imagine, most of the requirements are very similar the same: you have joystick and button inputs, you have a display (in this case, a tiny 2.4" LCD), and even get an OLED marquee on top for added effect. And unlike a real size arcade cabinet... you get to easily take it with you whenever you go visit a retro-gaming loving friend. :)
