The Pimoroni Picade Cabinet is a stylish, retro, and fun arcade cabinet for your Raspberry Pi!
The Picade Cabinet comes in kit form for you to build at home. All parts, panels, and components are included — you just need to supply the Raspberry Pi, micro SD card, and power adapter. We recommend using a Raspberry Pi 3 as the extra processing power gives great performance in many emulators.
This is the 10″ desktop arcade cabinet version of the Pimoroni Picade. We also have an 8″ Picade Cabinet Kit with a smaller screen.
We also carry a console controller version which doesn’t have a screen or cabinet and just the Picade X Hat PCB on its own for DIY builders.
The panels are powder-coated in black so the end result feels like a finished, quality product. The chassis makes a great sounding-board for the included speakers. You can’t fake that retro sound.
Total build time is around one to two hours and full instructions are available online. The only tools you’ll need are a cross-head (Phillips/pozi) screwdriver and a small flat-head for the Picade PCB screw terminals.

You’ll also need a good 2.5A power supply which is not included.
You’ll also need an 8GB+ SD card which is not included.
Please note: RetroPie is the best known operating system for Picade, and the developers are working on support for Raspberry Pi 4. Check their website for the latest supported OS.
