Has anyone played with the Pandora Box arcades? Thinking of getting something to scratch that retro arcade itch!

For a long, long while, I was really tempted to build an Emu-based Arcade Cabinet. The more I stress tested Mame, the more obvious it became that I'd inevitably end up having to have a quick'n'easy trapdoor with a Keyboard+Mouse attached.

Modern emu's tend to work much better, though, and if you did it with an RPi, I'm sure you'd cut down on necessary input methods even more.
Might have to think about that.

... Then again, nowhere to put it, now. Mum's claimed that bit of the dining room as her sewing corner!

Yeah we'll have a space issue too, with the Pandora Box arcades some of them ship with the controllers that you can just plug into the TV... not quite the same as having a cabinet.

I'm sorely tempted to get a bartop arcade cab at some point, ideally on top of a high table to compensate for all 195cm of me

the one condition is though, that it must have robotron on it!
