Tiny MAME Arcade Cabinet is both functional and adorable

While handheld gaming has arguably improved over the last few decades, this is perhaps one of the coolest things I’ve seen in a while. YouTube user 33Bender has uploaded a video of his creation, a 1/8th scale arcade cabinet loaded up with a MAME emulator. MAME, or Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator, is a type of software that allows users to run arcade games and has allowed DIY types all over the world to create their own multi-game arcade cabinets for years. This little guy is built around the GP2X Wiz, a handheld MAME emulator.

As seen in the video, the micro cabinet is loaded with tons of arcade roms and has fully functional controls, making arcade gaming on the go a convenient (and impressive) operation. To see this little MAME cabinet in action check out 33Bender’s video, where he shows off the world’s smallest authentic Donkey Kong experience.
