In this instructable, I'll show how I installed a Raspberry Pi inside an off the shelf arcade stick. The case is clear and transparent which adds a really nice look.

Check out my youtube video for more details

Step 1: Stuff Needed

Step 2: Setup Raspberry Pi

Before installing the RPi into the arcade stick, install your favourite software of choice either Lakka, RetroPie, or Recalbox. All are very capable software to run emulators. Make sure to test the arcade stick and everything with the RPi before attempting to install it inside the arcade stick enclosure.

Step 3: Placement

Find the ideal location to put your RPi where it won't get in the way of the buttons. Also make sure you use the thinnest and shortest wires possible so it'll fit. Tidy all the wires as well.

Hook up the OTG cable for power

HDMI cable for video out

Plug up USB from arcade stick to RPi

Step 4: Assemble

Put the case back together and make sure there are no wires pinched. put the 4 screws back on the close up the case.

Step 5: Finish

Hook the HDMI to your monitor

Plug a USB A male to male cable to the OTG cable and then plug it to a 5V 2amp USB adapter
