While looking around for videos of new arcade games and setups, I came across this interesting video of a young student at New Zealand's Mercer School showing off the tabletop and upright cabinets her class built to turn their computers into MAME machines.
From what I can gather, their designs are based on local Māori gods like Ruaumoko and Tangaroa. As you can see when the student lifts up one of the control panels, these aren't simple projects -- looks like they did a bit of soldering to get these working.
What a neat project to get kids excited excited about their class work. Along with learning about electronics and teamwork, they get to play Pac-Man and other arcade titles at the end of the day. Educators, take this idea and implement it in your own classroom!
