You couldn't use something like this to get VGA from the pi???

There has to be drivers for something like this.

Thanks to Brian and Sam who came over and helped.
I can't say we came away with everything we wanted for the fair, we hit a few snags.
While the Pi-controlled relay worked as promised, we hit a snag with the ring shooter's energy requirements (a whopping 15A+ according to my kill-a-watt). Since we only have 5 amps to play with at the fair it's a bust. Plus, that amount of amperage would have let the smoke out of Brian's relay.

I do have (most) of the parts to rework it into an equipment-lockout demo, using the RFID keycards and relay to switch a run-of-the-mill AC outlet.

The MAME-Pi might still be viable, though the sunlight will play hell with any display short of a CRT, and the Pi's can't speak VGA. D'oh.

Fair Table:
We need people to man the booth at the fair. At least 1 person should be at the boot at all times for all 7 hours of the fair. I have the times and names listed below. If anyone wants to sign up, let me know ASAP.
