Rasp-Pi Personal Arcade w/ 3D printed joystick top by VirgilVox Aug 29, 2012

Description

I ordered my raspberry-pi a couple weeks back (waiting on it still) and decided to prepare a project for it.

I had done personal arcade sticks before for a retro gaming night at our hackerspace, HeatSync Labs

Back then we hadn't gotten our laser in. Having one now, I made this nifty unfinished device.

Also heres the tour hackaday did of our space, you can catch me near the beginning talking about the arcade hackaday.com/2012/08/09/southwest-tour-heatsync-labs-in-mesa-arizona/#jp-carousel-82169

Once I get one of those nice scarce little boards and wire things up and install MAME and what not, I'll post more build pictures and video!

late reply/ Because hackaday came to visit :P

The buttons were actually bought off amazon as well as the joystick. it takes a bit of work to get the original joystick top off. you have to saw the plastic top in half to pry it off the metal rod.

Why a skull? Why not a raspberry?

I would like to build one of these. Can you please point me to the schematic and stl's for the buttons and such, if you have them handy. THANKS SO MUCH!
