How to turn The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time into an 11-button arcade machine

There's a great 15-step guide over on Instructable that walks you through the process of creating a bartop arcade cabinet for the Nintendo 64's Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

The process isn't for the weak-of-heart or the unhandy, but the result looks pretty amazing. Instructable user Phrazelle used plywood to construct the cabinet and a Rasberry Pi 2 to run the emulated game. The system uses 11 buttons for a full N64 controller button layout.

I can't find a video of the machine in action yet, but if I (or you) do I'll toss it into this post.
