Building a MAME console inside a TARDIS



You can combine the geekiness of Dr. Who with the geekiness of an arcade machine with simple tools like linux, Valium, Charles Bronson and a newt (at least according to the pictures) by building your own TARDIS MAME console. The MAME console is powered by a HP Vectra VL400 1GHz Pentium with 512MB of RAM and an ATI Radeon 9550 video card, plus custom joystick and buttons so it feels like the real thing (and, the TARDIS lights up like the real thing, though its dematerialization circuit seems to be on the blink).
