Pinball Hacking

The Zone

The best, in fact the only, good investment I have ever made was in my Twilight Zone Pinball machine. I got it ages ago from Richard, when he went over to the USA. It is huge, noisy and doesn’t always work very well. A perfect fit with me.

Tonight we spent some time playing with the machine in the best possible way. We took it to pieces and added some parts that I got in Australia while over there for the Imagine Cup. I’m always blown away by the sheer mechanical complexity of these things. Anyhoo, we managed to replace one faulty part (the clock you can see above now has four working lights) and break another. So I guess you could say we broke even on the day.
