Awesome video, Gav. You seriously need to make a follow up video using an old Gottlieb or Williams electromechanical pinball. Think of all the relays, mechanical reels, and the master ‘score motor’.

The strangest part of some of this footage to me is seeing the ball travel upwards with the kind of momentum you'd expect at a "normal speed," but you're seeing it go so much slower, so your brain kind of expects it not to carry that kind of momentum and stop much earlier. But it just keeps going, really throwing off my intuition.

When I was a kid, my parents would take me to this pizza place, and I would always play the addam's family pinball game. Thanks for the nostalgia and the interesting views into the mechanics

Facinating. Love those machines. The best one I've played was Lord of the Rings. I'm not into the movies but that was a really user friendly machine. Kinda like how Space Cadet was.

Measured speed of pinball: I heard Gav mention he counted the pinball bounce between pop bumpers 8x in a half second, but didn't hear a reference to the actual speed. Did you measure the top speed of the pinball in motion - and can you share that?

As a kid I visited a classmate her dad had an old pinball machine, and you could look inside thru the money door thing. So cool to see all those devices. I really was so amazed how much stuff was inside.

Gosh! Having been a prolific player of this kind of mechanical pinball machine, I thought you were going to show an older one that looks more like a pachinko game but only with pins, no wheels or levers.

Gottlieb did this in the '60's & '70's to design more robust mechanisms and Target assemblies.

What I most appreciate about this one is how the sequence of different shots flows together. It's clear how much time and effort went into capturing all the mechanics and angles in different shots, which combine together to create a seamless sequence that very clearly illustrates how everything is working.

Random similarity for you space junkies: the Canadarm2 (aka SSRMS: Space Station Remote Manipulator System) on the ISS robot arm's brakes use a high voltage (42V) to release the 7 joints' brakes and then a lower voltage (16V) to hold the brakes released with while the arm is in use. Continuous voltage to stay open is a safety design such that the brakes engage in a power loss scenario. The part where Gav talks about the flippers around 6:35 reminded me of our system though I am sure it is not the exact same architecture it does make me think of the SSRMS.

I find it odd that this is your first real pinball machine. I’ve known several people who had personal ones and there were many bars and arcades and restaurants from my childhood that had them. That’s crazy.

As someone who has been buying, fixing and playing pinball games for over 20 years I thought I had a pretty good idea of the physics involved. That shot of the flipper rubber deforming was eye opening. Going to have to see if I can notice that in real time.

One of the pinball machines at a place near me is super frustrating to play because the ball frequently gets stuck behind the top flipper, and the game doesn’t recognize it, so you either got to shake the machine and loose whatever bonus you have, or wait 5 minutes for the game to say “lost ball” and give you another one which you can use to knock the first ball out of the crevasse. It’s the only one of the machines I’m actually decently good at too, so it’s annoying haha
