    Quoted from toyotaboy:

    Ben also wore his BHZA tshirt for a short period during his recent 16bit console show

    I noticed this too and raised my fist in nerd rage at not being able to find respite from that mess.

    I enjoyed this build on Ben's show. I think its still possible without the laser cutter, but probably not without a 3D printer. I'm due for one, just waiting for the larger simple metal Printrbot to come down a bit in price, or my saving to go up enough to meet it without dipping into my pinball pockets.

    I think you could make a pretty simple pop bumper by printing an inverted cone with a ridge on top, it just needs to pull down and push the ball randomly and reset quickly, that could be done with a spring.

    Dedication or madness, its appreciated.

    Not sure if anyone else noticed, but it looks like the next Pinball Arcade Table is Ben's Super Shuttle Teensy Pinball... or well that's my best guess. That or a custom [email protected] vs TBHS RapBattle. Finger's crossed!

    I also miss the actual Space Shuttle. RIP old school kick-ass NASA days.

    Quoted from lpeters82:

    I think it's an interesting project, but after watching the final I'm just not sure it looks like all that much fun to flip.

    I always figured it was more oriented as a building/learning experience. I think its useful as that, especially for those of us interested in pinball or wanting to grow other generations into both the pinball hobby and electronics.

    However I can see that a portion of his audience probably sees it your way and maybe why it wasn't the hit we imagined.
