    Completed Cabinet

    I had the opportunity to work with a cutter during training for my job, so I decided to begin work on a project I’d been dreaming up for a few months now.

    It’s got a Raspberry Pi 2 powering it, and I’m using an X-Arcade joystick box for the controller.

    You can view the gallery of progress shots at this link.

    Thats Awesome!

    Is it just a HDTV mount on the back? So you could up the tv if you wanted?

    Yep! It pulls out from the back about 8″ too. Unfortunately it doesn’t turn 90 degrees, but I could replace the mount as well as the TV if I wanted.

    I like your setup there. Is the coin door functional? If so how did you connect that to the raspberry? thanks

    Completely functional. I bought it from X-Arcade, and it connects through the joystick box which connects to the Pi, seeing the buttons/sticks/coin door as keyboard button presses.
