Visible Pinball

Rob Cockerham's Maker Fair coverage led me to the Visible Pinball Project, a complete working Surf Champ game with a fully transparent cabinet and playfield. I couldn't find any video of it, but the stills look amazing.

Rob did post video of a neat-looking sculpture repurposing some pinball parts.

Update: I thought of this observation right away when I read about visible pinball, but then somewhere during the search for video it slipped my mind: Michael Schiess teaches people to play pinball using a transparent pinball machine the same way Tristan Taormino teaches people to have anal sex using a transparent dildo.

A recent issue of Make documented a pinball rebuild. It was pretty interesting. FYI.
