Game machine hacking at Vienna Dorkbot

The Vienna chapter of Dorkbot did a video of their last meeting, focused on game machine hacking. The hacks range from refurbishing and computerizing an analog pinball machine, to an electric guitar casemod (the NES Paul), to making music with the Nintendo DS. The meeting takes place at Metalab, an amazing playground for hackers in Vienna.
