    Hey Guys ,

    Just curious, I noticed on even newer machines you need to update a code with a thumb drive ect..
    My Question is, hasn't wifi technology become so cheap these days it would make sense to build new machines with Wifi enabled features just like say My Tv and most other electronics in the home these days?
    Companies could do Auto Updates, change themes for the holidays / graphics and have worldwide tournaments?

    forgive me if this tech exists i just have not seen it in my research.

    Quoted from Coz:

    It’s 2019. Absolutely no reason internet connectivity isn’t in pinball. Heck, I had internet as a teen back in 1994 and could play doom online against another opponent. I hope someone will implement this in future machines. I was at a friends house recently who has a WiFi connected refrigerator that could check weather, watch YouTube, etc. No reason it couldn’t be slowly implemented into pinball.

    100% My new Samsung Washer and Dryer tells my wife when to switch the loads over lol if they can do it no reasons not to put it in a $7-8k Pin..
    and for operators imagine how great it would be if they could just turn on Free play for all their machines for a party or Audit machines and check earnings ect..

    Very lazy IMO this hasn't been done already. Glad some people agree with me on this.
