Not really authentic, but interesting...  Wonder if you could steal the mechs and logics and make your own enclosed playfield?  Heheh!

Free resource for building your own rotating control panels!

My other job...

Actually, I was thinking about lego mindstorms.  Those are REALLY complicated, or at least they can be.  someone put the tcp/ip stack into the main controller.

Anyway, I think you could make your own pinball machine with mindstorms.  Use a real playfield, but give it a lego theme.  Control the calculations with mindstorms.
