    What do you think of a foot pedal for pinball?

    Good for them! The foot pedal idea is great and could be used for those who only have one arm / hand and can’t play pinball any other way.

    Doesn’t help with nudging but good on them for trying something.

     

    Our local arcade put up barrier between tables and has cleaning stations at each one.

    With all the things you repair on your area…. do by chance repair any arcade / pinball machines?

    At first I thought that was a really stupid idea but @terryred brings up a great point about people with handicaps.  I think we should adopt it here but I’m gonna need DOF updated to put some addressable LEDs and some solenoids on my foot pedal unit.  We can’t have force feedback up top and nothing down below

    Easy to add SSF to foot pedals! I had two exciters at the foot pedals of my simpit racing rig (with 12 exciters total)

    @terryred in early 90’s I serviced pinball/arcade games out in field as a part time evening job but only did that for a few years for fun.

    Interesting solution. One of our local places shuts down every other game and alternates them every other day to enforce distancing.

    That IS pretty creative.  Thanks for sharing.  And like said in video – might help with my game….AND you can hold a beer while playing.

    My local pin parlor here in Cleveland is just now reopening.  Going with spacing and lots of hand cleanser.
