|Project Summary||Project Information|
A Pinball machine is a complex arcade game with electromechanical sub systems that enable a player to manipulate one or more steel balls on a playing field. The objective is to score the most amount of points in a single game. The main game elements of a pinball machine include player-controlled paddles called flippers, which actively prevent the ball from falling down into drain. The game will be terminated after the ball falls into the drain a certain number of times. Scoring elements such as pop bumpers, ramps, and targets are what maximize a player’s points during game play. The playing field of a pinball machine can be made more or less challenging by the placement of game elements on the field and by the influence of motion on the steel ball. This project focuses on creating a Pinball machine prototype playing field, which enables students from the Interactive Games and Media department to evaluate different pinball playing field layouts for their History of Pinball Course. The goal of this project is to test the concept of control over game play by integrating various playing fields, game elements, scoring elements, and off the shelf pinball components. The end result for this project is to create one or more student-built pinball machines that will eventually be added to The Strong Museum’s pinball exhibit.

Content Guidelines: Use these links below to guide you in populating your website. A few points to consider:
- Be aware of any information that you or your sponsor might not want publicly available: confidential information, personal phone numbers, photos, etc. You can use the private directory for this information, and it will be available only to those users with Guest access to your site. Remember that once you post something online, it's nearly impossible to remove it entirely!
- Do not post any files on your site that are not yours, unless you are certain that they are in the public domain or you have received permission to post them. Examples of files that you should avoid posting are copies of published papers, standards documents, textbook chapters/excerpts, or copyrighted images. If you have received a .pdf of a paper through Interlibrary Loan, or purchased an ASTM or ISO standard, you may post it in the private directory, where only your team and guide will have access to it.
- If you are including contact information for people that would otherwise not be publicly available, make sure you have their permission. For example, your faculty advisor's email address and office phone number are already publicly available on the KGCOE website, and is fine to post. However, if he or she has provided a cell phone number to the team, that is most likely not public information and should not be posted without explicit permission.
- Comment out this text once you've read it.
