Incredible Technologies @ AMOA 2008 - Power Putt Golf, Golden Tee LIVE 2009 & a new cabinet design
I stumbled across Incredible Technologies' new 2009 arcade cabinet and I think it may be the future of arcade cabinets in the USA. Imagine the popularity of something the size of a tall end table that you can put under a wall-mounted big screen VESA panel. Maybe not so big with traditional arcade operators or purists, but I can see it being all the rage in the hospitality market (read bars) and home use, especially if they offer it as a standalone universal JAMMA/JVS cabinet.

If it had a bigger Control panel it would be a Lindbergh, also looks a bit like that robot from the 80's in Short Circuit.
Maybe this is the future.

The future looks a little generic to me
Not quite as it's 3/5 the size, half the depth, and half the price. The fact it works with any panel from Wal-Mart of Best Buy is just icing at that point.thegreathopper wrote:If it had a bigger Control panel it would be a Lindbergh, also looks a bit like that robot from the 80's in Short Circuit.
Used as a 2p unit, I do see it being a bit small. It might work with a Vewlix-style 7-button narrow layout and each controller set canted at a 30-degree angle.
Im confused, it looks like a ten year old golden tee cab, just with a flat screen

It sucks. If that's the future give me a DeLorean.

Looks like ****.
Oohh, goosebumps, and not the good kind. Makes the Lindbergh cab look good almost.
It's just a pedestal, that's it. It's designed to use a generic HDTV that's mounted on the wall. No display included with the cabinet at all. Power in, video out, pretty much.j69 wrote:Im confused, it looks like a ten year old golden tee cab, just with a flat screen
So kind of like a really expensive supergun?

The future sucks.. just big screens and nothing else... At least the Sega Rally 3 cab looks nice..
Say hello to my little friend...
If this is what it's coming to, I'd rather plonk my **** on my comfy sofa and play games on my LCD telly. It just seems so far removed for the cabinets that we all grew up knowing. I mean, at least the Vewlix looks like an arcade machine, not like an LCD telly on a pole with a cashbox connected.
I guess its a little bit nicer than some of the Street Fighter IV conversions out there.
Looks worse than a lot of bad BYOAC setups I've seen.
