A brown briefcase housing an arcade.

An Amazing Arcade In A Briefcase (Must-See!)


I used to fantasize about finding a briefcase filled with cash. Now I’m wishing for this gorgeous arcade briefcase creation.  WANT.

Created by Redditor PM_ME_Y0UR_VAGOO (you know we couldn’t make that one up), this project was inspired by the R-Kaid-R build by Love Hulten that costs an eye-watering $2,499.  In my opinion, it’s every bit as beautiful as its inspiration.

When it’s closed up and ready to join you on your commute it looks like a classic case that is sure to turn heads.

It’s ten times as stunning open and ready to play.

The panels in the case are made of MDF, expertly cut with a multitool and drill with hole saws.  The “real wood effect” was achieved by layering wood stain on thick with light brush strokes then spraying with a clear sealant. It fooled me.

Panels conceal two compartments; the right stores the power supply and removable joysticks, while the panel on the right allos access to the Raspberry Pi used to power the arcade functionality.

To say that I’m jealous would be an understatement of gigantic proportions.  I mean, look at it…just look.
