Using the gutted-out cabinet of an old arcade machine, I am constructing an Ubuntu-based arcade capable of playing both modern and retro games.
The hull of the machine was purchased for less than $100 CAD at a local arcade -- salvaged from a literal graveyard of broken machines. The old CRT and game-board was removed, and the hollow shell is all that remains.
An old PC running Ubuntu Linux will be installed inside the machine and connected to the controls of the arcade via a Microcontroller board. The PC will then be connected to a mounted monitor within the arcade. The result will be a modern take on nostalgia.
