Hoang Nguyen, Hunter Sheehan Dias, and Magan Lee built a laser cut wooden pinball machine for two players. The goal: provide stress relief and fun competition.

The 3’ by 2’ construction, the sixth iteration, has wooden flippers, a ball dispenser made from PVC tubing, and flashing LEDs is a combination of foosball, soccer, and air hockey. One issue that arose was the fact that all of the students enjoyed playing the game. A team member was soon assigned to guard the pinball machine so it was operational for the final presentation. The next iteration, they said, would be enhanced with a score board, a time display, speakers, and more reliable ball dispensers.
