Desktop Arcade built for great cause

Postby balbritton » Fri Dec 15, 2017 9:49 am

Next Wave Automation’s founder and CEO, Tim Owens, wanted to do something extra special for his cousin Angel, a young girl suffering from leukemia. Not only were the holidays fast approaching, but so was her 12th birthday. Being an inventor and entrepreneur, he put his talent – and his company’s resources to work – and created a custom, tabletop, Raspberry Pi-based arcade and cabinet. Because Angel is often hospitalized in isolation due to her luekemia-compromised immunity, boredom is frequently as hard for her to deal with as the medical treatments. Tim wanted to change that so he went to work and created “Fight Like an Angel Arcade.”

What an awesome, thoughtful project. Good on you!

The web page looks like it'll be updated soon with project instructions. That will be a fun read! Maybe I'll make use of an old LCD monitor and do something similar.
