Awesome. Totally awesome!

That was great! Thanks for posting it up.

#5 12 months ago

Fricking amazing.

Thanks for sharing! Never seen before the rubbers "detaching" from the flippers like this!

I was stunned when I saw the quality of slo-mo bits. Great game to do it on as well!

So weird to see those slow motion ramp shots. They trick you into thinking, what a weak shot....no way it's going to make it up the ramp.

Hmmm kind of want a wonka now

Ball coming off playfield alot, from flipper, slings and target. I would have like to seen a multiball in slow motion with balls hitting each other.

Oh wow. Wonder if JJP has paid them to do that.
This is absolutely great for pinball. Slowmoguys have an insane reach with 13 million subscribers.

Agreed! It’s crazy to think one video like this could introduce so many people to pinball.

This video was an awesome watch! Crazy how much everything moves that you can’t pick up with the naked eye. Like when the ball was coming down the wire form. It makes it easier to understand how nuts and washer end up in the bottom of the cabinets. Lol

Yes, this especially. This video provides some good insight as to how regularly serviced parts wear and break. Fipper bushings, why do they snap in half? Because the flipper bat kind of torques sideways every time it flips. Why do ramps crack? Because when a ball hits them at an angle, the entire ramp vibrates. Why do flipper rubbers wear at the tip? Because the rubber is stretched and actually leaves the bat with every flip. Why do new games have playfield dimples? Because air balls happen a lot more often than the human eye can see. Stuff like that provides very valuable data for operators and engineers. Now I'm thinking the diverter on the left ramp return is too strong. When it comes down, it moves the entire ramp, which can cause stress failures in the future.

So much to unpack here! Thanks a lot for sharing.

Likely not. Product placement and free marketing is why you lend out product for special projects like this.

Very cool video, thanks for sharing.

Well done. No doubt one of the most detailed video explanations of the mechanical marvel of pinball I have seen. Thanks for sharing.

I'm not a game designer, and after watching this killer video, I'm wondering whether pin manufacturers could:

1. consider (utilizing slow-mo for QC) and
2. try tilting their middle standup targets down a few degrees after seeing those *bodacious* air balls.

I was thinking the same watching this. In fact if you watch at the 6:56 mark of the video, That is a great example of how pooling is generated at the posts. You can literally see the post bend from that ball strike. Cool stuff.

Was that post at 6:56 missing a rubber?

That post looks to be behind the upper flipper. I don’t think they get rubber.

Those airballs are crazy! Great video.

More or less same topic... if like me, you had, at least once, a pinball glass explode in your hands, you'll like this one from the same slomo guys about tempered glass breaking:

#24 11 months ago

Well that was cool! Thanks for sharing.

#25 11 months ago

what a great video. It explains dimpling. Things move much more than i ever thought.

#26 11 months ago

I know right? Really debunks the dimpling argument.
