The Countdown to Maker Faire Bay Area is On!


Lil Ju Ju Pinball Museum: Michael Schiess (video)

Fun & Games

Michael Schiess shows the exhibits in his Lil Juju Mobile Pinball Museum. The centerpiece on display at Maker Faire Bay Area 2011 is his vintage machine that’s been refitted completely in clear plexiglass, so that attendees can see the inner workings of the pinball machine while its being played.

    I took the pinball repair class at Crucible from Michael, he’s a great guy and the class was great too.  I really need to go to Lucky JuJu again (the non-mobile version in Alameda).

    I *love* pinball! And Michael’s enthusiasm is really contagious. Mad respect to him for preserving this rad bit of Americana.

    It was so awesome to see this at Maker Faire, especially since I had just visited the Musee Mechanique in SF the day before, which is definitely worth a look if you’re in the area in addition to Lucky JuJu
