How would you hack a skee-ball machine?
We were invited to help the wonderful folks at Rackspace think of new, fun, interesting hacks for a classic Skee Ball machine that was given to them. We had some ideas, but I'm sure that you can help us come up with a few more.
We came up with the following:
-measure roll speed
-graphic overlay for the ramp (kinda like the lines on a bowling lane)
-output scores to graphic display
-RFID log-in to save unique player data
-case mod the display to show off the sweet sweet guts
-record video of 100 point rolls to capture the thrill of victory
That is a less-than-comprehensive list of things we came up with on our field trip to view the machine. Drop new suggestions in the comments.
