While I have frequented a many video arcades in my time, pinball machines were never my forte. If I’m ever in Germany, I might make an exception for this particular model. Niklas Roy (of balls fame) put together a giant pinball machine, being displayed at the Phaneo Science Center in Wolfsburg. Galactic Dimensions has a playing area of roughly 10 x 20 feet, and features a hydraulic system that propels the ball into the bumpers. One aspect that remains low tech is score keeping, as scores appear to be recorded on a sheet of paper. Don’t be surprised if you see “FRQ: 70 bajillion points” mischievously scribbled on the list.
