Ikea retro gaming console

Materials: Rationell Variera

Description: I was planning to put my retro gaming console in a pleasant enclosure, that was compact and comfortable enough to be used with ease. My console is based on Hackvision, a retro gaming platform based on the super famous Arduino.

I went to the Ikea store and eventually discovered the Rationell Variera box (24x17cm). It is really nice to be handled and beautiful in white gloss.

I’ve bought a retro gaming joystick and three retro gaming push buttons, too (one of them is lit up by an internal LED – I’ll use it as a power-on indicator). Two linear potentiometers (10K) with knob complete the hardware needed to interact with this retro gaming consolle.
