nano MAME Cabinet

Scott writes – “After getting MAME running on my iPod Nano, I decided to make a to-scale arcade cabinet for it. By scaling down a 19″ monitor to 1.5″, it meant that the cabinet was just a hair over 5″ tall. It is a fully functioning MAME cabinet, possibly one of the smallest ever made.”Link.

  1. I should add that the site has links to a gallery showing the construction of the second cabinet, a Ms. Pac-Man scale model.

  3. Nice work. But I think “fully functioning” is a bit of a stretch if it lacks even basic arcade controls. I wonder if there could be a way to wire a stick and buttons to the scroll wheel?

    Here’s another attempt at a micro MAME cab:

  4. Can you really call it a “fully functioning” cab if it lacks even basic arcade controls? (And only runs a few games.) I wonder if you could wire up a stick and buttons to the wheel somehow.

  5. im sure if the screen was rotatable, you could have the ipod right side up and then make a mini joystick with a cross glued to the bottom to hit the buttons when you tilted it.
