Pianocade Vintage Arcade Games Controller

By: Steve Wylde

The Pianocade is an item that will bring back memories of vintage arcade games. It's a retangular box with buttons on it that are made to look like an old arcade game, but it's actually a synthesizer and MIDI controller. The Pianocade has a 5 watt internal speaker, ¼: amplified headphone out and monophonic square-wave synth with 4 bit digital-to-analogue converter.

The Pianocade is full of neat features for those who like to tinker around and it's fun for everyone to play with. It's an open source, so you can modify the circuit board or even create custom firmware. The powder-coated aluminum box has authentic arcade buttons and even a cool arcade joystick. It also comes with strap mounts, so you can wear it like a guitar.
