Mini Arcade Kits

I started with one design. Now I have many styles. I have to credit my fan base and loyal customers who email me with requests, tips and questions. These designs are because of them. I was happy with just the one type, but no, not them :)

Arcade Types

Porta Pi 10"

The original and most popular. Measuring in at 13 x 10 x 10 inches (HxWxD) this will turn your RPi (or similar) into a fully functional mini arcade machine.

Porta Pi Vertical

Similar in design to the Porta Pi Arcade, this design has the monitor in a vertial orientation. A homage to the 1980's.

Porta Pi Nano

A deeper control panel with added storage space for a versatile build. Embellishments like a marquee and oversized speakers have been scrapped for a "just gaming" theme. 


Have friends? This cabinet is just wide enough for 2 players. Expect to rub elbows and other body parts when playing.

All Arcade types share same core parts.

Change your arcade look and feel without having to purchase all new electronics. (Unless you want to)...

Here's what you can do with my kits. Awesome paint job / graphics not included. Extra parts shown not included. Results may vary (I've had lots of practice).
