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.
