Marcelo Souza of São Paulo, Brazil, dropped us a note to share his cool tabletop arcade machine emulator.

I’ve spent the last Months building this MiniArcade. I’ve made 2 Videos of it. One of the process and one of the GamePlay. It has a unique optical Sensor to get the coin Credits, develped by me using Arduino as “base”, but customized. (Name COINDUINO, by me).

If you savvy Portuguese, be sure to check out Marcelo’s project log including some fascinating entries on the Coinduino. Otherwise, check out his fun video detailing the build. And it looks like Marcelo will be selling kits.
