Enthusiast turns his HDTV into the ultimate digital pinball machine

With the scarcity of arcades here in the US, pinball enthusiasts have had to take matters into their own hands to get their fix. One such enthusiast is BadBoyBill, the admin of the HyperSpin forums, who used an HDTV, an LCD monitor and a 3D pinball simulation program called Future Pinball to build his own 1080p pinball cab. It recreates that classic pinball experience to the T, with the LCD acting as the backglass — and Bill can essentially play any supported pinball game he wants now all in one machine.

Check out some of his high def gameboards below, and check out the video above to see Bill's cab in action.
