Virtual Pin Builder - Moving from UK to Melbourne
« on: January 01, 2018, 05:57:02 PM »
Hi everyone, Im currently in the UK and moving to the Melbourne area in March with my Australian wife.  I build arcade machines and virtual pinball machines for a living.  Ive built about 30 virtual pins in total.  Most of my machines include DOF (Direct output feedback) so although its a virtual machine, it has mechanical solenoids and shaker motor inside to give owners mechanical feedback.  They are obviously very different to a mechanical machine but have some advantages and disadvantages.

The reason for posting is to really find out from the Australian members : is there a market for high quality virtual pins in Oz?

IMHO, there maybe a small market, but I would not want to try to earn a living off it

most members of this forum are into the history, mechanics, art, of real machines
we all have 'Pinball Arcade' on our mobile phones, but nothing beats the real thing
