The EP Plays Arcade

That’s right, the EP team has started construction of our very own arcade! “EP Plays” is our newest team building project which is serving as a way to collaborate, get creative and put our engineering skills to the test.

The machine will be driven using a personal computer, with a M.A.M.E. (Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator). The controls will be commercial grade with leaf-style micro switches for the buttons and joysticks, optical trackball, and optical spinners. All controls will be hardwired directly to a keyboard encoder interface, which translates the momentary signals into keyboard presses, or mouse input for the computer and M.A.M.E to understand.

The team has been excited to start the process and looks forward to each and every step. Be sure to follow our Instagram and LinkedIn showcase page – EP Culture, to follow the progress and see the end product!
