    I made this coffee table as a scratch build from new parts and materials. I wanted a cool looking table to match my arcade, Nintendo, pinball theme living room. I couldn't find one I liked so I made what was in my head. It has a small DMD on the panel made to look like a Game Boy. My friends love to play it at parties. I thought some of y'all might like to see it. Here are pictures and a video. Let me know what you think.

    Disclaimer: It contains zero parts from used games.

    Whoa man, this is awesome! Great work. I love how you came up with something completely original.

    Very cool! I also love that the players sit side-by-side like that with the flippers essentially on the "side" of their playfield, must give it a unique feel to play.

    What is controlling things? Looks like a great project.

    It's very basic. I used a Lego Mindstorms CPU to program and run things.

    wouldn't have thought lego mindstorm would have enough kick. Nicely done, does it have scoring too?

    Quoted from toyotaboy:

    Yes. The mode people overwhelmingly prefer to play is the best 2 out of 3 balls. I guess people see it like air-hockey, soccer, or foosball. The difficult ramp shot is a favorite as it has a high chance of draining your opponent. As for the kick. There is a 40V power supply for the solenoids.
