Here’s an interesting looking pinball machine made from a huge flat screen… Here’s the artist’s description…

The “cyberspace” level represents the alleged dangers the Internet poses fo children, as envisioned by parents and scaremongering media. Here kids can lose control (as the player can, by getting the ball into a pachinko-like structure) while trying to reach the browser bar at the top of the playfield. Killer psychopaths or dungeon fodder, gambling.

    We’ve got to so remake this. I think a 14inch screen and a 22 inch widescreen LCD might pair well together to make a mini version of this.
