Microcade: Palm sized fully PCB arcade machine for STEM

Microcade: Palm sized fully PCB arcade machine for STEM

Microcade is a build-your-own kit for making your own palm-sized retro arcade console. The kit includes all the tools needed, a "learn to solder" training board and video, and a custom library of pre-installed open-source games. It is fully made out of PCB and tries to push the limits of what can be done with PCB art by making fun-themed cabinets. We are working on a beta arcade-themed coding platform with 6 courses, from beginner to advanced, to teach coding and electronics through arcade games.

Jack Daly

Student, Electrical engineering degree apprentice and Founder of microcade & 8BitCADE – initiatives set out to make learning STEM accessible & fun!


Growing up, my schools lacked fun and creative resources for kids in D&T. I saw from my father the struggles of being a teacher, especially within STEM fields, and wanted to support and change that. I created microcade and worked with a D&T department of a leading international school to develop a curriculum around microcade to help get kids motivated in STEAM.
