Arcade Cabinet build

Building a mini arcade cabinet is probably not what most people use their Pine A64 boards for, but as it turns out the board + LCD are a great basis if you want to build a mini cabinet. I started on this project some 2 months ago and I have finally finished it over the weekend. It is vaguely inspired by Neo Geo cabinets but I took the creative liberty of using a Japanese Sanwa joystick instead of the american type joysticks. I also used buttons with white LEDs rather than multicoloured ones seen on real Neo Geo cabs. I also designed the art for it - so its hardly Neo Geo accurate... 

The inside is a total mess right now - I will tidy it up once I have all the software stuff worked out. 

On the subject of software, the cabinet will eventually run Retroarch on a minimal ubuntu image that pfeerick and I put together earlier this year. Right now the outstanding issue is getting the LCD to work with mali+drm enabled, but everything else works as intended. So as you can see in the picture above, right now its running android. 

I will be bringing it to FOSDEM 18 (granted we get a stall) so if you will be attending make sure to drop by toplay some Metal Slug X or Street Fighter 2. 
I must say I am pretty darn pleased with it Smile Feel free to let me know what you think.

For those who want to see some pictures from the build they can be found here.
