Ultimate Arcade Machine

The Hack Street office will include an arcade console near one wall, with a large wall-mounted display that doubles as a video-conferencing system (Hangouts, Skype, etc). I want to assemble an awesome system that includes classic arcade titles as well as the best console titles.

UX

“User Experience”: the recognition that the interaction with systems (especially “smart” systems) goes beyond the user interface (UI). From wikipedia: “User experience (UX) is the way a person feels about using a product, system or service. User experience highlights the experiential, affective, meaningful and valuable aspects of human-computer interaction and product ownership, but it also includes a person’s perceptions of the practical aspects such as utility, ease of use and efficiency of the system. User experience is subjective in nature, because it is about an individual’s feelings and thoughts about the system. User experience is dynamic, because it changes over time as the circumstances change.”
