The Picade is a small arcade cabinet for your Raspberry Pi that can be supplied as a kit or by purchasing the components in various stages . This allows you to build up the small cabinet in next to no time (between 1 and 2 hours as stated on their website).

The components are powder coated black so give a quality feel to the product. Included in the complete kit is the following:

  • Black powder-coated cabinet panels (swish!)
  • Picade PCB (Arduino compatible with stereo 2.8W amplifier) pre-loaded with the Picade software.
  • LCD panel mount with protective overlay
  • 8″ LCD panel and driver board
  • Two speakers wire wires pre-soldered
  • 3.5mm stereo panel mounted headphone socket
  • Attractive decals for the marquee and controls
  • HDMI, audio, and USB cables
  • A proper arcade joystick
  • Twelve micro-switch arcade buttons
  • Custom assembled wiring looms
  • All other fixings, fasteners, nuts, and bolts

Options can be made to the kit such as replacing the 8 inch screen with a 12 inch screen and you can easily swap out the joystick and buttons for more expensive ones down the line should you desire.
