Sprite_tm’s miniature MAME cabinet that runs off a Raspberry Pi and even has a 128×32 OLED marquee along the top.

Recently, I got one of the Pi’s myself exactly because of that reason: it’s always useful to expand your toolset with something powerful and cheap. I didn’t get it for a specific reason other than the fact I may have to use it somewhere in the future and it would be fun to play with it.

To make a long story short: Ofcourse I couldn’t just be satisfied by just hooking it up to a TV and installing RaspBMC and playing some movies… so I ended up spending quit a lot more time than I originally envisioned. The end result does show it, though, I ended up with what may be the smallest MAME-powered arcade cabinet in the world.
