Title: Arc-Aid - 12th & 13th July 2014 - Cambridge, UK
Post by: TL on June 01, 2014, 14:54:32 PM


'Arc-aid: Cambridge’ is being held at the Cambridge Computer Museum on Saturday 12th July (and following on to the Sunday 13th for those wishing to continue!) with the aim of bringing together members of the online arcade community to repair and restore some of the museum’s arcade machines. The event will see engineers from across the country turning up to open arcade cabinets, pull out circuit boards and then solder, prod and probe until the sound of arcade cabinets springing back to life fills the museum (waka-waka-waka!). Arcade-centric talks will be put on throughout the day and there’ll also be a PCB workshop for arcade community members to bring their own faulty games to and have some practical knowledge exchange with those that are more experienced. Whilst all this restoration is taking place the museum and arcade community will give access to a selection of awesome arcade and pinball machines recreating the experience of an actual arcade!

Game over?! Insert coin to continue!

If you want to stay the night, there is a travelodge just a few minutes walk away.
