'80s Tomy toy turned into mini OutRun arcade cab

August 31, 2017 1 min read

A British electronics wiz, Matt Brailsford, also known as "CircuitBeard" has created a fully working mini-arcade of Sega's 1986 legendary racer, OutRun, out of a classic children's toy.

Beginning with the vintage "Tomy Turnin' Turbo Dash", originally manufactured in 1983, CircuitBeard created the mini-masterpiece by installing a Raspberry Pi feature the game's ROM, as well as entirely overhauling the cute dashboard to feature real-time indicators, headlights and a speedometer. A speaker was installed so you could hear the dulcet tones of Magical Sound Shower, as well as a 3.5 inch HDMI screen to replace the original unit's LCD display.
