Your pinball making journey starts now! Video from the Chicago Pinball Expo 2022

Aaron and I gave a talk at the Chicago Pinball Expo 2022 called "Your Pinball Making Journey Starts Now!" In this talk, we walked the audience through the various steps they (or you!) can take to start "making pinball". The idea of building a pinball machine can be daunting, but luckily there are multiple paths you can take.

For example, if you are not interested (or you don't feel confident) with electronics, cutting wood, or bending metal, your pinball-making journey could begin with an existing Bally/Williams machine and one of our FAST Retro Controllers which lets you start writing new code in just minutes. (We'll even provide you with an MPF configuration template to get you started!)

Pinball News was covering the show and recorded & posted a video of our talk. By this point, Aaron and I had already been at the Expo for a few days and our voices were shot! But we had a big audience and a lot of fun. Watch our talk below:
