The Legocade Album / Image 1

Welcome to the Legocade Project Gallery!

First of all, I want to give a huge "Thank You!" to Shea Silverman's PiMame Project and the wonderfully helpful, knowledgable, and talented people over on his forum, as well as Squid who ported Mame4All to the Raspberry Pi.

The Legocade is a fully functioning arcade table made COMPLETELY out of Legos. No adhesives or other structural "helpers" were used in the making of this project. The Legocade uses a Raspberry Pi running Mame4All. The screen is a Dell S2240M which is a beautiful monitor with an amazing viewing angle. The joysticks and buttons are from Paradise Arcade (every shipment comes with Hawaiian chocolates!) and the keyboard emulator is an iPac from Ultimarc.

There are two speakers inside the Legocade and two Lego grills that cover them. The Legocade supports two players with two action buttons and a coin-in for each player. There are also "Player 1" and "Player 2" buttons in the middle.

All in all, the project required about 5,000 Lego pieces and around 30 man hours.
