Introduction: Episode 13: the Hidden Bookshelf Arcade

Have you ever wanted to own your own Arcade Cabinet, and keep it in your room without your parents/spouse/teacher knowing?

Well we here at Stupid Inventions know how you feel, which is why we have created The Hidden Bookshelf Arcade!

Behind the fake books is a fully loaded, functional arcade!
Not only that, but behind the bottom books is a DVD library with built in DVD Drive!

This fun DIY Arcade Cabinet is a must for anyone who wants to keep his video game habit a secret!

What I would do is get actual bindings/sides of books and glue them together, so it would look WAY more authentic than the paper covering shown in the video.

that was my original idea, but since my mothers a Librarian, I just didn't have the heart to de-spine old books.... anyways, the point of Stupid Inventions isnt the executions but the original least until i get better at making things, lol thanks for watching!

You should just get some outta the trash.
