If you enjoyed playing Pacman and other 8-bit games in your childhood days, then you may be interested in playing this smallest arcade cabinet. It’s a micro arcade cabinet with a screen that’s just a bit larger than your thumbnail. It was made by online hardware store Adafruit. According to them, it’s the world’s smallest arcade cabinet.

MAME (Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator) cabinets are the so called gaming boxes of the 90’s that house emulators that can hold a lot of classical games. Here’s a video of Adafruit’s tiny arcade cabinet.

Many MAMA enthusiasts love to build complex cabinets to house their emulators, this one included. This cabinet uses a .96-inch RGB OLED display and a Raspberry Pi Zero. Phillip Burgess, the builder of the cabinet, used a tool called Nanoscreen to be able to downsize the video game graphics so the size would be just right for the tiny screen.

According to Adafruit’s blog post, the cabinet was great to play but very difficult to build.
