  • We’ve seen arcade cabinets before, reasons to imagine you’re back in the 80s or even 70s, playing classic games like Street Fighter or Pacman, but this is the first time I’ve seen an Android-based device like this. This cabinet is based on Android 4.0.4, it has a Tegra 2 CPU and 1GB of RAM.

    It’s basically the Lenovo K1 tablet integrated into a cabinet and connected to the joystick control system. Mame4droid is the emulator used here and over 8000 games are available, creating a great experience. The cabinet is custom built and every single one of you can get this cool experience. Wii arcade sticks can be connected via Bluetooth, so it’s all perfect. You can turn the tablet in portrait or landscape, depending on the game type or simply the way that the app runs.

    The control system is the Tatsunoko vs Capcom fight stick and overall this cabinet is easy to replicate and recreate. Sadly, we don’t have instructions on how to build such a wonderful  machinery, but you can imagine that it’s a pretty easy task to do. Keep in mind that the fight stick is plugged in to a Wii remote, that is connected to the Lenovo K1 via Bluetooth. This means that the cabinet depends on the battery tablet and the Wiimote AA batteries.
