This custom arcade cabinet can be used as a stand up arcade cabinet or the control panel can be removed from the cabinet so you can take it to a friend’s house and plop it on their coffee table, hook up a HDMI cable and plug it in and play! It is a portable arcade with everything needed to play inside the control panel.
This video is filmed and edited with all new gear and it looks loads better than previous videos (let me know what you think!). I also tried a bunch of new filming angles and techniques to make a more entertaining video for you. I hope you find it interesting and feel inspired to build one yourself.
If you have any questions about the build, please feel free to comment and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
