The classic arcade system: it’s undeniably awesome but also bulky, square-ish, and usually capable of playing only one game. Polycade was designed to address these issues, notably the aesthetics: its shapely wooden cabinet is constructed by professional cabinet makers and painted using a professional spray gun or wrapped with high quality printed vinyl graphics. Standard 8-way two player controls as well as 4-way single player controls cover the wide variety of games that it ships with, including Pac-Mac, Pole Position, Street Fighter II, Sonic 2, and nearly a hundred more. The Raspberry Pi 2 Model B inside will also run a variety of emulators if you’re so inclined including Atari 800, Game Boy Advance, Sega Genesis, NES, SNES, and others. We’d expect no less from a design by children of Nolan Bushnell, founder of Atari.
