Robotics Monday: NXT Pinball Machine

Name of Model: Lego NXT Pinball
Created by: Mark Gryn of the School of Computer Science, University of Windsor and Michael, an 11th grade student who is participating in a co-op program at the University of Windsor

Details: Remember the Pinball Machine we featured back in 2007? Someone inspired by that model has now created a Mindstorms NXT version. This one is also purist - all LEGO except for the ball (I suspect they could have used a LEGO ball too). Only 6 NXT bricks were used, compared to 13 RCX bricks in the original. A substantial amount of instructions are up at the site above, including source code (you know, for all of us with 6 spare NXT programmable bricks and over 8000 spare LEGO pieces to turn into a pinball machine).
