Almost all of the components are in for the Pinduino (just waiting for TIP122s). We have developed a general purpose Pinduino library to make programming these for new games quick and easy: https://github.com/elyons/professor_pinball_pinduino_sketches/tree/master/pinduino
Feel free to pull a copy and use as you wish.
All our code for games are posted to GitHub: https://github.com/elyons/professor_pinball_pinduino_sketches
Version 2 of the Pinduino is returning from production. Details on the improvements are in this post: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/update-arduino-shield-propin-pinhead#post-2118187
This is an update on our progress on our Arduino shield for intercepting flasher and coil outputs. Since this is prof_pinball, here is our science-style update:
Purpose: Develop a plug-and-play Arduino shield that let's anyone easily make custom programs for controling any pinball mod.
Background: This is a plug and play shield for Arduino Megas (http://arduino.cc/en/Main/arduinoBoardMega) with all the necessary circuitry for plugging into J6 and J7 on SAM Stern pinball machines, and plug outs to drive LED strips, addressable (programmable) LED strips, or other mods. You can easily program Arduinos using all the open source tools available (Windows, Mac, Linux: http://arduino.cc/en/Guide/HomePage) so that every time a J6/J7 flasher or coild is triggered (or a sequence of them), you can trigger a custom mod in your game. Right now, we have been writing programs for ramp lights, backbox lights, and under backbox lights. (See videos of Tron and Ironman)
