I'll link to my instructable I'm still writing for the briefcade once it's finished and published if you're interested in it. I will say I've only had luck emulating mariokart 64 for N64 games and I've tried a few. Lot of visual bugs, game breaking glitches, UI errors, and painful framerates. I mostly built mine to play Sega, SNES, and Gameboy Color games that I played as a kid as well as some arcade titles. Also, having my own lasercutter made fabrication many many times easier since I could prototype everything to fit with cheap cardboard until I got the right fit for all my panels and parts.
The briefcase arcade emulator (I've been calling it a 'briefcade' for a good while now) used a portable laptop 2nd monitor that takes mini HDMI input and can be powered from 5VDC from USB:
Everything runs on a Raspberry P1 4 running Retropi Emulation Station image. The controls all wire into a USB driver board (came as a kit). I never did figure out how to configure the trackball. I was powering it with a 30,000mAH USB bank, but now I use a smaller uninterruptable power supply inside. The speakers and amp board aren't great and I can't recommend them. Overall, I love using it.
Arne totally digging the custom paint jobs on your lamps, very very cool....
