Michale Molero's "MeggyCade" combines two of my gaming loves: homemade tabletop arcade machines and Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories’ Meggy Jr., the fully programmable handheld console with an 8x8 RGB LED matrix display.

Molero says he worked on and off for just under a month building this small setup from scratch, integrating the Meggy Jr. into the 7.6 lb cabinet and adding support for arcade controls. Not bad for what he says is the first thing he's ever built!

The music in the embedded MeggyCade video above can get annoying (you might want to mute it), but if you watch it for a few minutes, you'll see some footage of Steven Read's Donkey Kong clone for the LED system, Super Monkey Kong.
