Hi! I'm Shea Silverman. You may remember me from my previous successful KickStarter: PiPlay! The gaming distribution for the Raspberry Pi.
My team and I are here to present the PiPlay DeskCade! The DeskCade is a desktop arcade console that you get to build yourself.
The DeskCade works with PiPlay and RetroPie, so thousands of retro, classic, and modern video games are accessible at your finger tips!
The case is designed for the brand new official Raspberry Pi Display to be mounted to it, along with the Raspberry Pi board and connections on the back.
We currently have a working prototype and the manufacturing know-how, but we need your help to bring the final version to life.
We hope you enjoy the DeskCade as much as we have had designing and building it.
-Shea and the PiPlay team
Risks and challenges
The current risks are getting all the kits cut out on our laser cutter.
We have 24/7 shared access to our makerspace 60w Epilog laser cutter, as well as purchasable time on two other high end Epilogs.
We will also be able to use the manufacturer who designed and cut out the previous PiPlay Raspberry Pi case.
Our other risk is shipping on time. We have made a limited amount of kits available to ship before Christmas, whereas the other kits will be shipping in the beginning of 2016. This gives us plenty of time to cut and package everything.
We learned a LOT about shipping from our previous Kickstarter. We plan on making good use of that knowledge when it comes to packing and delivering these awesome kits.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
