made me laugh though it cost $1k more to buy a machine that you have to assemble.

I think I saw a video a while ago where there is a lcd built into the playfield that recognises the ball going past and you aim for a screen image similar to the reflection style of game like SW ep1 and RFM. They state 3D glasses, so this may work with the lcd in the playfield - interesting stuff.

Hopefully it comes off and can only aid in pushing the bar even higher for Stern and JJP.

You also get to slect the colours of the toys on the playfield making it very custom and LE.

Very cool

does any one have more images??? because this looks very cool. i love zombies, and think if you were going to make a pinball this would be an awesome theme. the website has some great artwork can only imagine what the playfield would look like.

I have a bad feeling it is a basic "Future Pinball" system with a screen AS a playfield but its a 3d one instead... well thats the way i see it, bit costly if thats the case

I think OJ is on the right track - I think the game is going to be a combo of game ramps and toys and maybe the score and graphics can be seen on the game playfield as they mention neonised ramps etc.

As I understand it Wotto the site hasn't been published anywhere other than on pingamejornal and they are allowed to do the sneak preview release.

In addition the guys on Spooky pinball have been talking up a project with Ben heck and I think he gets one of the earlier ones as he is heavily into the spooky theme and Red Shirt is linked with Spooky and  Zombie.

Here is the link to the you tube video with the interactive screen in the playfield.......

[ Invalid YouTube link ]!



99 x $10000 = $990k - I could handle that

Sounds COOOOOL ! more manufacturers the better . Great theme and sounds like some sweet technology too . The pinball worlds heart is beating just nicely .
Bit costly , but , one power ball !!!!!!!! Hope it isn,t based on the movie though as I am over the movie tie in stuff , bring back original ideas .
If it isn't broke, it isn't pinball.

sort of makes sense, if its a starter company. would be hard to sell more and might be playing it safe

as for the price you can understand the high costs, you would have to cover all the tooling it would take to produce a pinball factory
