Transformer Arcade Machine/Entertainment Center!

 

This project was built because I wanted an arcade machine in the living room.  The only way I could get the wife to buy into it was if I concealed it so when I wasn’t gaming, she wouldn’t have to look at it.  And so the idea was born.  Create an arcade machine that was hidden inside a normal TV Armoire or Entertainment Center.

It starts out as an Entertainment Armoire

               

 

            

 

Then, when the top panel is flipped back, the Marquee is exposed

       

Next, A door is flipped open, revealing the mighty controls!

   

       

Now, the bezel pulls out from above the TV and flips down into position

 

Viola!! An Arcade Machine is Revealed!!
