Portable arcade I made from a 1960's clarinet case.

I made this for my brothers 21st birthday awhile back. Thought I would share it. Let me know what you guys think or if you have questions just ask :D . For some reason I cannot upload the photo of the parts underneath the controller board so sorry. :? Also, the Joystick is detachable so I can shut it and go.

Cool! Is it battery powered? I'm guessing it runs on a Pi, Zero or 3?
I've just finished my milk.

Nice! I had a clarinet but with bigger case when i was young, playing in the Municipal Philharmonic institute of my hometown.

Looks great! Just don't bring it aboard an airplane , not even if its checked luggage... :)

Yes it is powered but a portable cell phone charger. I get like 6 hours of gaming out of it.

This is AWESOME. I love building in old cases. I especially love that it looks stock from the outside.

Here's a gaming PC built in a 1940s suitcase that I did... https://www.facebook.com/RogerATetzlaff ... 070&type=3
