Earlier this year I completed my full size arcade cabinet, and I’ve actually seen a LOT of people make their own using my plans (which is totally amazing!) Since I made that cabinet, I haven’t been able to take my Raspberry Pi based setup out to events because of it’s size so I decided to make a smaller, portable version. Hopefully this will also be a good solution for people who want to have an arcade, but don’t want to sink the time, money and/or space into a full size cabinet.

In case you’re wondering, I used a Dell 17″ LCD monitor Model# E176FPf but just about any 17″ 4:3 monitor should work here.
If you haven’t see the full size cabinet series, be sure to check it out.  This video only covers the build of the smaller cabinet, so you’ll have to look back to the series for more specifics on the electronics and setup. Also, if you need help getting the 2nd player setup, this article was what I used.
