RETROPROJECTO: A RETRO ARCADE CONSOLE
I found this really great looking Kalart Craig 16mm Projecto-Editor on the curb near the Library of Congress on Capitol Hill, Washington, D.C. It seems the owners were gutting the house, pulled a bunch of “junk” from the basement, and put it out on the curb to get rid of it. I didn’t know what I was going to do with it at the time, but the enclosure was too cool to pass up. A short time later, I discovered the internet loves retro arcade consoles and it seemed like the perfect opportunity to build my own!
- USB NES Style Controller
- USB PS2 Style Controller (for games with more that 2 buttons)
- Back up TFT LCD Display

- SPST Vintage Look Switch
- Salvaged Desktop Speakers
- Edimax Wifi Dongle (this allows to me to ssh in and add games, update controller settings, etc.)
Check out the videos below to see more about how it was built and how it runs!
