Denhac is an interesting place filled with interesting people and often times interesting stuff. I had grown tired of seeing this Arcade Console floating around the “Please Hack” pile and thought it was high time someone slapped a Retro-Pi in it.
This project was pretty simple and consisted of the following steps:
- Disassemble and gut existing console
- Remove crappy glue-on finish and sand
- Rewire controls using I-PAC
- Assemble and plug into Pi
Originally I had planned to paint a green Denhac logo onto the surface of the controller, but the stencil I had printed turned up missing and our laser cutter bulb burned out. I’ll probably return to this later. For now we have a nifty retro-pi arcade console that Denhac can take to conventions.
