This is a continuation of my multi-part series about my arcade project - which seems more hypothetical at the moment. I have slowly come to the conclusion the project can't really move forward until I have at least a working proof-of-concept for what the control panel will be. This is because in order to really … Continue reading The Arcade Cab Project Part 3: Constructing the control panel part 1
