Maker Faire Redux

Remember when I wrote how Pascal was fascinated by the pinball machines of the Pacific Pinball Museum? He was totally immersed in the games, the lights, the ball, the flippers...

Today, I came home and Pascal had built his own personal arcade from shoe boxes and cardboard.

Fixing the rotating flipper on the "big" pinball machine. Pascal re-used a motor from his roller coaster for that.

The "first" pinball machine. Ingenious use of pencils as axles. They work very well, by the way.

A proud Maker!

The ball gets flipped up the ball channel with your fingers. The flippers are rotated by hand. The boxes sit on wooden blocks. Love it.
