This project is part of my Arduino Pinball adventure where I’m learning Arduino programming while having fun building parts for a pinball game. The pinball targets in this projects is what you would call “drop targets” in traditional pinball games. The ball knocks out targets one by one to get score and eventually a bonus when all targets are down. Continue reading Arduino Pinball – targets
Lots of cheap solenoids can be found online, but can they be used in an Arduino Pinball game? This post is part of my Arduino Pinball Project, and I test out cheap solenoids and print out some basic flippers to try out the designs.
So I have finally found a way to make targets with blinking lights and score. This feels like a good start for coding the rest of the game. It’s still in the early prototype stage, but it works. Continue reading Arduino Pinball – targets, breadboard and arduino code
Pinball – The perfect arduino project? I’ve always been interested in pinball games. The blinking lights and sound effects is mezmerizing. With the technology available today the idea seems simple, cheap and fun. Continue reading DIY Pinball – planning and initial ideas
