Play Pacman and Donkey Kong on world’s smallest Arcade!

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The tiny emulator has been created by Adafruit, a New York-based open-source hardware company, and can be seen playing Pacman in a video produced by the firm. The developers built the arcade machine with relatively few parts and it was completed over a morning of ‘hacking’.

“The idea came about while discussing a gaming “bonnet” – a small accessory board precisely fitted to the Raspberry Pi Zero form-factor β€” which would include a few basic controls and a tiny monochrome OLED display,” the company says in a blog post.

The device has been built with a Raspberry Pi Zero, an OLED screen, a small amplifier, and a “few assorted odds and ends”, which are used to control.

Unfortunately for gamers, it will take a little while to build and needs some technical knowledge. Adafruit also says the machine was “only marginally fun to play” and a “lot of trouble to build”.
