Real arcades are slowly becoming a thing of the past. When was the last time you saw a pinball machine in the wild, flashing and dinging its siren call for quarters? Fortunately there are reservations for the endangered little big guys, and Pins and Needles is one you'll wish was in a warehouse in your neighborhood.


Established and maintained by founder Molly Atkinson, Pins and Needles is half pinball refuge, half petting-zoo and powered by pure passion. The collection itself—while small—is staggeringly diverse, up to and including The Embryon, quite possibly the only pinball machine with a vagina. Literally. Sorta puts 3D Pinball Space Cadet to shame, doesn't it? [Cool Hunting]
