Hi all, i want to share with you my project, a NanoCab with a Raspberry inside.
You can follow the building process on my site, but i will post also here the progress.

This is the first prototype in order to calculate the various dimensions and layout.

This is the screen, a 7" LCD monitor.

First wiring, the Joystick! It's a Sanwa JLW-TM-8.

Soon i will receive the control panel, and i will wire also the buttons. :geek:

I ordered the sanwa joy and buttons from arcadeworduk, they cost something like 50€... The panel is made from laser cutted steel, and i didn't pay it :D

:O I would like one too for free :D :D

You said that the control panel arrived, you didn't order it? I'm looking for a company who makes me a similar one.

I've posted a video on my site for showing you the connection, and some new photo of the building.

The bad thing is the language, because the video is in italian, but you can watch it without audio :D
