    Since I'm a person how likes to repair/tweak/clean equally as much as I like to play pinball, I tend to think about things that folks might be missing. Mostly when it comes to repairing, but perhaps also when playing.
    Do you know any tech stuff that you would buy if it existed?
    Just to make your mind going, I'm thinking stuff like; automatic switch matrix debugger, replacement of a hard-to-get board, solid state flipper board for older games, broken LEDs/bulbs detector, etc etc...
    Give me your best idea that you would like to see done.

    You are describing a test fixture. Making a robust fixture for board repair would be worth its wait in gold

    The things I mentioned was more of like brain storming. I doesn't have to do with repairing. I like the ideas of, for instance, colorDMD and DMD extender as well, but they are already done.

    Quoted from Eric_S:

    I don't need any of these myself right now, but a few replacement boards that I don't think are being made yet:

    I would love to see a multi DMD extender. Have 1 big one that you could switch between all your games. Extra points if it wireless and had an app for choosing the desired game.

    If it you had all the information about what solenoids, flashers and playfield insert lights that are active, and was able to combine this information into something useful, what would you do?
    2 examples I know already exist that uses part of this information is the RPM mod for Getaway (insert lights) and the Pinduino LED stripes (flashers).
    Any other ideas what you would be able to do?
