Picture this -

A standup, full size arcade cabinet with a 30" CRT (brand new).

A transparent, LCD bezel

http://crystal-display.com/products/transparent-lcd/

LCD marquee

An automatic riser, to bring the cabinet to sitting or standing height.

Voice controls via MyCroft AI (open source Alexa) . . "Hey Dreamcade, play Street Fighter 2".

Programmable LCDs above every button (Switch between "Light, medium, heavy" to "A,B,C" or "Square, Circle, X" . . https://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en/nkk-switches/ISC15ANP4/360-2344-ND/2039171&?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI1OS5kIio4QIVS77ACh1i3AHzEAQYAyABEgLIcPD_BwE

Full RGB illumination

EL Tape T-Molding https://www.t-molding.com/t-molding-illuminated.html

Aaaand screw it . . Let's have an automated dropping 27" LCD in front of the CRT for the new games.

I figure someone can make some decent money selling a transparent LCD that mounts over a license plate.

This forum needs more threads about Arcade 1Up cabinets.

Except for the last bit, I don't see why not. I would stop at the riser.
