We won a Blue Ribbon for Editor's Choice for the Pacific Pinball Museum's Pinball Camp at the 2016 Bay Area Maker Faire in San Mateo this weekend!

We had the Lil' Ju Ju travelling Pinball Museum with hydraulic legs that automatically level and stabalize the floor for the 5 vintage pinball machines inside. The trailer was surrounded by science exhibits made and inspired by pinball machines. Dick Falkard had his conical slices "hole in one" exhibits from the 'Geometry On a Roll" show and his latest invention, the "Pinlidoscope". There were Michael Schiess's creations: The original "Visible Pinball Machine", the Galton Pinball, PinChime, Bumper Box and EM Music Box. We also brought a collaboration piece we are developing, the elliptical perpetual pinball table. We had a nice Jukebox inside the LJJ and five EM Gottlieb pinball machines on freeplay: Aquarius, 2001, Jacks Open, Big Brave and Jungle Princess.


Our neighbors from Alameda's St, Joe's STEAM Club were there with the scratch built machine they built.
