We help you make pinball!

We are FAST Pinball! We make the electronic boards that let you make pinball machines, whether you're a home hobbyist, an indie game studio, or a commercial pinball manufacturer. We can help you build a new machine from scratch, update the code and game play on an existing machine, or "retheme" and old machine into your dream theme. And we'll all have a heckuva lotta fun doing it!
