Raspberry Pi & Maker goodies
Curated range of best of breed products.
A stylish, retro, and fun arcade cabinet for your Raspberry Pi.
The Picade comes in kit form for you to build at home. All parts, panels, and components are included - you just need to supply the Raspberry Pi and power adapter! We highly recommend using a Raspberry Pi 2 as the extra processing power gives great performance in many emulators.
Unlike many cabinet kits our panels are powder-coated in black so the end result feels like a finished, quality product. The chassis makes a great sounding-board for the included speakers, you can't fake that retro sound.
Picade is the ideal desktop arcade cabinet, you have to see it to believe it.
Total build time is around one to two hours and full instructions are available online. The only tools you'll need are a cross-head (pozi) screwdriver and a small flat-head for the Picade PCB screw terminals.
@sandyjmacdonald has written an amazing (and exhaustive) review of the Picade, check it out here: http://sandyjmacdonald.github.io/2015/09/01/picade/
Please note: Raspberry Pi is not included. Picade is compatible with Raspberry Pi 3, 2, B+, and A+ - we recommend Raspberry Pi 3 since it's a lot more powerful! You'll also need a good 2.5A power supply like the official Raspberry Pi power supply.
