Just outside of Chicago, IL in a quite little industrial park lies a piece of entertainment history – the Stern Pinball Factory. Yesterday, the Milwaukee Makerspace and friends were invited to take a tour into the World’s last remaining Pinball Factory. It’s truly impressive to see the process from stringing up and average of 1 mile of wire to the intricate model making of characters that will sit on the device. Not only was Stern nice enough to allow 10 of us to drop in and look around, but they also talked us through the process, but let us take some pictures:
Tours of Stern are open to the public and have kickoff events that showcase their newest machines on launch day.
