Hi all. very new to this, but a bit handy when it comes to building stuff.
A good friend of mine showed me his bartop machin that he was in the process of buillding and after looking at some of the games etc (running on pi) i was wowed. decided to have a go myself as I was off work over xmas.....so it begins...
Had a look around the web for the kind of machine I wanted to build but nithing really caught my eye so went with a standard kind of cabinet - no sizes or plans, just a little sketch on the back of a used envelope and away we go - only consideration I had to make was the screen size. Popped to my local currys/pc world - had a look, wanted to have 4k - but whch size? once its bought you cant go any bigger so I figured its all or nothing so picked up a 43" 4k LG smart tv.
Everything was build around it, so I only had to make sure the inside dimension of the cabinet was 40" had it all built and working in about 3 days - took another 5 days or so adding bits here and there...speakers and subwoofer, foot rail, hidden draw for keyboard /mouse etc.
all worked out great - still learning config of hyperspin but will get there in the end
Cant wait to build the MK2 now....
video below - compiled from pictures i took while maing the cabinet - all put together by apple iphone lol.
