Introduction: NES Arcade
I saw someone built a Nintendo arcade on here, so I wanted to try and build my own, but with an old laptop so this is how i did it
First I made the outside of the Arcade, with some foam billboard i got at michaels, 2 for 3 dollars !!!
I measured what i wanted for the walls and cut them out, then I took pieces of wood and connected them to the side with a staple gun to make the cabinet nice and steady.
Next I painted it black, and made the control board. I covered it in plexi glass and also used the glass for the top sign and screen.
I then made the joy stick out of a ping pong ball and pen
The buttons I ordered and trimmed down
I also installed a fan because the laptop I was using always over heated,
I put a light and speakers in the top, and used a Nintendo sticker for the sign
Have that I put in the computer, configued the keyboard with the buttons and the emulator, and attached the glass and control board. looks pretty nice to me and goes good in my bar
