A Nintendo Switch-powered Pinball Machine
Inspired by my long-held desire to build a virtual pinball cabinet and the quality of the Pinball FX3 port on Switch (not to mention its support for vertical play), I spent the past few weeks building this fully functional Switch-powered pinball cabinet.

If Reddit disinterests you, you can check out the Imgur albums for the current final look and for the in-progress log with some of the design specs I worked up.

Built mostly from 1/2" MDF plus repurposed computer monitor and old Kindle Fire tablet. Added plexiglass and aluminum trim for the top finish.

It's a total blast to play on. I wish FX3 let you make things even more "authentic" (mostly by stopping the camera from moving around so much) but it's still so easy to get lost in the gaming.
