I have added a new feature in Pinball-Browser : the ability to display the scores in a PC window (and maybe additional infos in the future). It just requires an USB adapter to connect to the Sam board and a patch in the firmware.

There is a slight delay between the dmd and the screen on the pc, but I'm working on it.
I also have some work to do to make it game independant (it only works on AC/DC for now); A new Pinball-Browser version will be published when it's ready.

Based on this, a small dmd could be used on the apron (and connected to a Rapberry instead of a PC).

That would definitely lend itself to interesting possibilities.

Have to bring this baby up, this feature would have been awesome for tournaments, it's quite hard for the crowd to see what's happening and even better, scores could be automatically updated to competition bracket or livestream etc. In many games there is so much happening on the dmd that actual scores are not shown for a long time in some situations. Also in older games it can be real PITA to scorekeep because attraction animations can last several minutes before last games score is shown. Anyway, understand that this didn't biring up bring up any interest but just shouting out loud to all the major tournament organizers, this would again extend the experience for all, players, live audience, scorekeepers and stream followers.
