The Pinduino project is a simplified control system for building your own pinball machine using the popular Arduino system.
- 64 switch inputs
- 64 lamp outputs
- 16 to 32 solenoid outputs
- 5 to 10 general illumination outputs
- 2 to 5 flipper outputs
- 4 seven digit score displays
- 1 credit/ball count displays
- Sound card for playing WAV files
- Must be simple to program new games
This is a dream that I have been working towards since 2012. After spending the weekend at the Allentown pinball show I decided to begin designing the initial prototype.
Over the years I would work a little at a time on the project only to be interrupted by something more important. I have finally found the time to complete it and have been progressing with leaps and bounds. Currently the project is 80% complete with 64 switch inputs, 64 lamp outputs, 16 solenoid outputs, 5 general illumination outputs, and 2 flipper outputs. The system also has an I/O Expansion port to add an additional 16 solenoid outputs and flipper outputs.
You can follow and contribute to the project on GitHub.
