Reliving arcade classics with Dan Shelffo of Shakopee

Shelffo combines a passion for arcade classics with electronics skills to refurbish old video game cabinets.

Combining a love for classic arcade games — first kindled by a Donkey Kong machine at the PDQ Market in Burnsville — with electronics skills learned in the military, Shakopee resident Dan Shelffo builds multi-arcade games. The machines repurpose old video game cabinets, but allow enthusiasts to play more than one game.

The video is part of a series by Chris Jones called Minnesota Made, focusing on Minnesotans and the things they are passionate about making.
