Transparent Pinball Machine is Awesome, Beautiful

This is the Transparent Pinball Machine, a custom piece created out of a 1976 "Surf Champ" unit by Michael Schiess, owner of the Lucky JuJu Pinball Arcade in Alameda, CA (which looks like the coolest place ever). It is, without a doubt, the most beautiful pinball machine we've ever seen. And unlike most custom fetishized dork objects, you have a chance to actually play with this one. It'll be unveiled for the first time at the Pacific Pinball Expo in San Raefel, CA, from October 5-7. Pinball museums and expos; isn't America grand?

Also, the Pinball Hall of Fame in Vegas is an incredible place to visit. It's got some of the rarest and most popular games of all time, all available for play. Even Pinball Circus, a prototype game from the 90s that was only rumored to exist until recently, and a some foreign games too.
