Ben Heck - LOST Pinball Machine
  Posted by: AceBHound on May 3rd, 2011 8:07 PM
I've been following Ben Heck since he started hacking Atari 2600's into small portable devices back about 10 years ago and have just been in awe at some of the recent projects he's gotten into with pinball machines. Many of his earlier projects were mods/hacks for converting console systems into portable devices, but pinball machines are far beyond those types of mods. Well his latest project is a LOST themed pinball machine -- if you're a fan of LOST you'll understand why that is pretty exciting! How cool would it be for a real-deal LOST pinball machine to be produced by a pinball manufacturer? Ben's going to have "The Hatch" scoop, where you shoot the ball into a hole and a moment later it's propelled up through another hole on the playfield. The LOST theme opens up so many ideas and I hope it gets a lot of LOST specific sounds and gameplay. It'd be pretty cool to have to hit targets or switches in order of the sequence of the infamous numbers - 4 8 15 16 23 42. Anyway check out the LOST pinball machine project here!.
