Circuitry, metal, electricity, nuts & bolts and much imagination went into creating the old school pin ball machines. Its classic pure mechanical heydays were between 1950’s and late 1970’s. The solid state microprocessor era started took off in the 1980’s.
Mark Gibson is a tech is a mechanical enthusiast and wanted to show how classic pinball machines worked. So he dedicated time and effort to separate each movement of a pinball machine for the curious to see and learn. He’d created an interactive exhibit to show exactly how electromechanical pinball machines functioned.
Mark has been doing his hacking for a long while. Take a look at his website to find out more.
