The Picade is currently at the prototype stage and needs funding from Kickstarter to improve the manufacturing process and to develop a custom printed circuit board.

The brilliant gaming arcade has a tiny 128×32 white OLED to display, which looks awesome.


To make his gaming cabinet portable, the author had to use his old cell phone batteries with a self designed charging circuit. When the power supply is connected to 5V, the batteries are charged.
