It's been a long time I'd like to build an Arcade based on R-pi. If this project fail, I could always re-use the case if it's looks like an arcade yet.
I don't have too much time, then I go for the most simple solution. Just wood plates, screwed by the inside. The main plates are the sides.

The big buttons could be filled with a big bright led. That's quite nice, I have to find a way to drive it from the Raspberry pi GPIO.
I have around Mosfet IRF530, but the need more than the Rpi 3.3v level to drive a reasonable current. I added quick and dirty transistor BC547.
To connect the button to the raspberry pi, I configured the GPIO with a pull-up, and the button shorts to 0V.

There is plenty space available in this box ! The raspberry-pi and camera module somehow looks funny.
The back button and main power connection.
The printer, and front button.

After the quite successful entertainment brought by the Sefli machine on the Juggling Convention, I had to modify a bit the functionality for the Open Geneva Hackathon.
There is a big countdown of 10 second once you press the button. You don't know when the picture is taken during this interval. It is like a lottery, sometime the printed ticket don't show your face but the one of someone else with the text "find who's on the picture !"
