Picade Plasma Kit
Any chance you'd offer the Picade Plasma Kit (Illuminated Arcade Buttons) for sale in the near future?

Stereo sound
I noticed that this item includes - One Picade PCB (Arduino compatible with stereo 2.8W amplifier) that has stereo outputs; - One speaker with wires pre-soldered. However it feels right for me to have 2 speakers included in this kit. So, must I purchase the extra speaker separately? If yes, then is there a compatible speaker available at ModMyPi for matching the one included?
  • Only 1 speaker is included, so if you would like 2 you will need to purchase an extra speaker separately. 

    This speaker is suitable for use with the Picade PCB -

Pi3 compatibility
Hi, will this work with the Pi3?
  • Yes it is, and we recommend using a Pi3 due to it being far more powerful.

Please Note. This is the original Picade Console not the new 2018 Picade Console :)

Stylish, retro, and fun arcade controls for your Raspberry Pi! The Picade Console comes in kit form for you to build at home. The Picade console includes the controller Picade PCB, switches, joystick and mounting media. It's great if you want to hook your Pi up to an external screen for that retro gaming experience!

All parts, panels, and components are included - you just need to supply the Raspberry Pi and screen! We highly recommend using a Raspberry Pi 2 as the extra processing power gives great performance in many emulators.

Unlike many cabinet kits our panels are powder-coated in black so the end result feels like a finished, quality product. The chassis makes a great sounding board for the included speakers, you can't fake that retro sound.

Total build time is around one hour and full instructions are available online. The only tools you'll need are a cross-head (pozi) screwdriver and a small flat-head for the Picade PCB screw terminals.

Please note: Raspberry Pi is not included. Picade is compatible with Raspberry 2, B+, and A+ - we recommend Raspberry Pi 2 since it's a lot more powerful! You'll also need a good 2A power supply.

What you'll receive in the Picade kit:

  • Black powder-coated cabinet panels (swish!)
  • Picade PCB (Arduino compatible with stereo 2.8W amplifier) pre-loaded with the Picade software.
  • One speaker with wires pre-soldered
  • 3.5mm stereo panel mounted headphone socket
  • Attractive decal for the controls
  • Audio and USB cables
  • A proper arcade stick
  • Twelve micro-switch arcade buttons
  • Custom assembled wiring looms
  • All other fixings, fasteners, nuts, and bolts
  • An awesomely hackable product :-)
