Philco Predicta Casemod

I have been thinking of building my own MAME arcade machine lately. I am just not sure I have the room for it and do not want a bulky arcade machine just sitting in the middle of my living room. I was about to shelve the idea for another year when I came across this lovely Philco Predicta Casemod. They took an old Philco from the late 50s (the Predicata was made from 1958-1960), hollowed it out and put a computer inside of it. The results, as you can see are pretty amazing.

I am now in the market for a Philco shell, so if you know of one, give me a yell. For more info about this mod build drop by Philco Predicta Casemod [@] Onomy Labs.

    Weeell, I don’t know about a vintage shell, but if you really wanted to blow some money (or just want a retro TV) go to They make brand new, close-to-exact reproductions and have eight models (four tabletop, four with the integrated bases).
