Lego Pinball

Lego Pinball

Here's a pinball machine made out of Lego.

I'm a fan of Lego creations that are technically impressive, rather than visually so; I'll take a Lego difference engine over an eight foot Star Wars rebel attack cruiser any day. That's why I'm really impressed with this creation.

I particularly like the picture third from the bottom: in order to get communication between 13 different RCX microcontroller blocks, they've built two seperate reflective chambers, bouncing infrared signals around between point collectors, game mechanisms and controllers. Wicked.


yeah that Lego Difference engine is pretty awesome aye. Gizmodo is a good site too.
