Console design

The Kitronik Arcade console is equipped with a 1.77'' color LCD display. On the left side of the board are directional buttons and a piezo buzzer. In the central part, in addition to the mentioned display, there are also Menu and Reset buttons. The right part of the console is mainly two large action buttons and vibration motor, used to generate haptic feedback (it works on the same principle as in popular console pads). On the edge of the console are a microUSB port used to alternatively power it and a switch in the form of a sliding switch. On the underside of the console are placed three baskets for AA batteries (batteries not included), two of which are arranged in such a way that they simultaneously serve as handles for the hands. Thanks to this treatment the console is ergonomic and fits well in the hand.
