Its funny, when I was developing LEDs in China, Taiwan, and Malaysia, my contacts had no idea what a Pinball Machine
I sent pictures, which was replied with, "OK" but no working knowledge.
For China, it took my rep around 3 months to find a friend that would give her access to US Internet. (illegaly)
She finally saw some videos!!
All of a sudden, many of the projects we were working on made more sense.
Playing a game for points, with keeping a ball active, and responding to mechs, lights and sounds, could not surpass
how they saw Pachinko, the advanced crazy versions, or one ball type Bingo.
The view was more to shoot, watch, reward.
The time spent playing pinball was confusing too.
This was accompanied by not understanding why their was no immediate financial or product reward.
Their games, constituted more "gambling" aspects.
