Mac mini Arcade Game Machine

Michael S. writes in to tell us about his Mac mini-based "Vectornomicon" arcade game machine. "Vectornomicon is an all purpose media center; it functions as an arcade game, a jukebox, internet kiosk and a media center. The case is homemade, on lockable rollers, and uses an arcade monitor (which makes DVDs look great). Hidden in the case is an s-video adapter, a split audio out and 20' of cord for attaching to big screens and projectors. Oh, you can also rest a drink on it, which was the main reason for making it," writes Michael. The Vectornomicon is powered by a G4 Mac mini and uses a 250GB NewerTech miniStack for extra storage. It also features a Wells Gardner arcade monitor, custom built controls, working coin box and a USB hub for extra input devices. Michael is using MAME and a wide variety of emulators for the games. All in all, it sounds like a lot of fun. Well done!
