Nanocade converts netbook into MAME arcade cabinet

updated 07:50 pm EST, Mon January 31, 2011

Homebrew design expected to sell in February

Designer Rasmus Sorensen has created a small arcade cabinet, the Nanocade, that is designed to work with netbooks or Mini-ITX motherboards and a 10.1-inch display. The design integrates a joystick and eight buttons, while the housing is produced from 29 pieces of colored acrylic. The cabinet's compact form is said to be a perfect size for using on a lap.

The first prototype was built around a 10.4-inch LCD monitor, Ultimarc UltraStik 360 joystick, Sanwa and Seimitsu pushbuttons, an Intel D510MO motherboard, 1GB of memory, and a 30GB SSD. The homebrew MAME design is expected to ship in February, with an estimated price of $350, though the launch details still remain unclear. [via Engadget]
