    I've been asked on a few occasions what led me to create the ColorDMD. My typical response has been "Because I'm an idiot."

    When you consider the enormous cost and complexity of developing a pinball machine, and the very narrow available market and volume with which you have to recoup that investment, it's a small miracle that anyone is dopey enough to create or even work in this business. It's passion that drives this industry (more than good business sense) and a desire to create something unique and truly great.

    Yes, Jack and Gary are both idiots, as are all the game designers, artists, and engineers who continue to dedicate their talents to contribute to this insane industry. Props to the idiots.
