If like me you enjoy a game of pinball, you are sure to be interested in this awesome Rombus Pinball emulation station created by developer and maker Matt Brailsford aka Circuitbeard. Check out the video below to learn more about the project and build which created a mini pinball machine with a Lattepanda core running dual monitors and Visualpinball and Pinballx ui.
The pinball emulator measures just 26cm x 15cm x 25cm and all the components are housed in a custom-built laser cut case designed by Matt. “I entered into this project thinking it would be another nice emulator project, similar to what I had done before, but it was actually a lot harder working with the pinball emulators than I had expected. This ultimately forced me to make some compromises but in the end, I still think what I produced was something rather cool and special. I don’t think it can really compete with a true dedicated PC based pinball emulator with 4K displays like the pros are making, but for a casual gamer like myself, it’s a fun little thing that doesn’t require a lot of space, so it suites my needs perfectly.”
