A stylish, retro, and fun arcade cabinet for your Raspberry Pi. The Picade comes in kit form for you to build at home. All parts, panels, and components are included - you just need to supply the Raspberry Pi and power adapter! 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. Picade is the ideal desktop arcade cabinet, you have to see it to believe it. Total build time is around one to two hours 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. @sandyjmacdonald has written an amazing (and exhaustive) review of the Picade, check it out here: 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.
  • LCD panel mount with protective overlay
  • 8" LCD panel and driver board
  • Two speakers wire wires pre-soldered
  • 3.5mm stereo panel mounted headphone socket
  • Attractive decals for the marquee and controls
  • HDMI, audio, and USB cables
  • A proper arcade joystick
  • Twelve micro-switch arcade buttons
  • Custom assembled wiring looms
  • All other fixings, fasteners, nuts, and bolts
  • An awesomely hackable product :-)

Customer review

The package came with no damage (Overseas shipment to the US) and it was shipped quickly! Customs took several days, which is normal. The kit was easy to put together. The quality of the materials are top-notch! Seeing the plastic boxes house the different pieces gave me a feeling of quality materials and thought went into manufacturing it. All of the vendors in the US were sold out and I could only find a supplier in the UK (Pi-supply). In fear of it never being manufactured again, I had to order it anywhere!! I am glad I ordered it. I am waiting for the 12" screen to be shipped to me (From an eBay vendor). The 8" screen is nice, but I want a bigger screen!! I also purchased my Raspberry Pi 3 Version B as well as the official power supply. All works great! I am a very happy camper!!

My seven year old helper and I built this over a weekend and he's now addicted to Frogger! We powered the Picade and Raspberry Pi 3 with two ports from a Swees 25600mAh usb portable power bank and it kept us entertained over the Easter bank holiday away in the (wet) off-grid Yorkshire Dales. We did find that if the speakers were too loud it would draw too much power and crash during PlayStation emulation. Overall very pleased with the product and happy with the build quality.
