 This has been a very fun project to work on. I have discovered that the Hallmark arcade cabinet ornaments are the perfect size to put the Tiny TV into. I had to carve away some plastic for it to fit but its looking pretty good after a lot of cutting and hot glue. I cant wait for Hallmark to announce this years arcade cabinet on July 10th. I'm already planning the next one. :)

I have these tiny TVs loaded with many full game Playthroughs.

I'd love to make a Donkey Kong with a playthrough to the kill screen. That might be in the future as well.

These look AWESOME! My mom works at Hallmark, so I can't wait to show her these pictures!

Can I add these pictures to our TinyTV Hall of Fame blog? https://tinycircuits.com/blogs/news/tinytv-hall-of-fame

If you ever want to add a playable arcade to your collection, we have a Tiny Arcade with around 30 free downloadable games (https://learn.tinycircuits.com/Kits/Tiny-Arcade-All-Games/) made by our patrons!

Would love to see any updates you might have in the future! Thank you for sharing!

Sure you can, it would be an honor   :)

Here is a video showing the Arcades in action.

In the back is just a simple USB ribbon cable for power.

Thank you for the video. The sound effects really make you feel like you're standing in an arcade!

I love that feeling it takes me back for sure. I will be adding some more in the future so I'll post updates then.
Also I'm really looking forward to that larger touch screen, any Idea on when it might release or any demos of it working?

So! I sort of have an update on that front, but not a great one. We haven't been able to get the screens we were planning on using for the new touchscreen processor, or the processors.

The part shortage is stalling everything for us currently. We even have a few customers buying our boards with more sought-after sensors on them just to take the sensor off and use it in their own products. The soonest we could have the touchscreen processor as a product would be winter if everything goes right and we are able to buy the components.

I wish I had better news for you, but for now, we just have to be patient as all of the supply chains get caught up with everything. Hopefully, I will have a positive update on this front in the coming months! We're definitely keeping our fingers crossed here.
