iPhone morphs into pinball machine
Pinball machines are hard to come by these days, and even the pre-installed version on Windows has died out. Fret not, Pinball Wizards! You can turn your phone into a miniature machine and relive those childhood arcade moments.
Pinball Magic transforms an iPhone with side-mounted flipper buttons, a ball launch plunger and a credit / select button. LED lights and traditional sounds also add to the nostalgic realism.
Compatible with all iPhone models and iPod touch 3.0 upwards, Pinball Magic has several play modes, and includes tilt detection to cut out cheaters in traditional fashion.
Pinball Magic is available on pre-order at Firebox for £30. It will dispatch next week. You will need an app though to get it running, which can be downloaded for free.
Flipping heck. ®
That is simultaneously the coolest and most utterly pointless programming project I have seen for about a decade and a half. Absolutely stunning!
Re: won't someone think of the dinosaurs?
The only time I think about them is when I'm putting their liquefied and refined remains into the tank of my car, and even then it's usually a grumbling about the cost.
I'm still not getting an iPhone though....
...a shop who seem to have turned the old maxim of "A fool and his money...", into an art form!
Box of pinball machine parts?
I know what Libya's getting in the post!
