This was a cool read but not very practical.

huh. this might be good to have displayed on a big LCD TV display over a crowded machine or during a pinball tournament.

could also be easily repurposed to convert the signal to replace the led/plasma display with an LCD monitor...then a guy could artificially "color" it similar to those RGB kits with the custom roms you can get.

Yeah, my first thought was, "this dude just made a color DMD replacement for $20."

This forum needs more threads about Arcade 1Up cabinets.

It's been done like 10 times over already. Why is this news?
If you are helping someone and expecting something in return, you are doing business not kindness.

 :dunno
I mean I'm not super into pinball and thought people here may think it's cool. PinBall Jim lilshawn didn't know so it's not a complete wast of space.
