Yes arcade news is a bit slow in these recent days but not completely dried up, if we look in areas of arcade-related devices. One such device is this new mini-cocktail cabinet called Dr. Action’s Distraction Contraption by industrial design student Samuel Freeman. As you can see from the photo above, it uses some authentic arcade parts (although apparently there are some Lego’s used in there somewhere, probably internally) and Mr. Freeman is open to building more upon request. I’m not sure if any of the major arcade companies are currently looking for individuals who can design new cabinets but it looks like that sort of work would be up his alley. Naturally with any cabinet project like this the game selection will be up to the user via MAME or some other arcade emulator made for small devices, the link below shows it running Pac-Man.
