Arcade cabinets are great. For many of us they bring back memories of a wasted youth pumping in coins for an endorphin hit of flashy graphics, joystick wiggling and button mashing. But what if your favorite games are text adventures like Zork, or Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy? Or you get your adrenaline rush from writing code in BASIC? Even Wordstar or DBASE II can get the blood pumping.
Well, recently Pimoroni relaunched their Picade cabinet, which is a desktop sized arcade cabinet designed to add a joystick, buttons, sound and screen to your Raspberry Pi to turn it in to a great little arcade emulator. Luckily, it can easily be turned in to a home for your RC2014!
