The Digestion Game

Several years ago this game was created to teach about various digestive tract problems. When the start button is pressed a pneumatic cylinder launches a pinball into play. The ball must be navigated through the maze while avoiding the holes. The initial electronics were screwed down to a wooden plank and based on multiple relays.

Trouble shooting this was a pain so a couple months ago I ripped the whole board out and started from scratch. The control system is based on a PLC with sound being produced by a CFSound III board.

Also swapped out was the center fire solenoid that flips the ball back onto the play surface after going through an underpass in the center of the game.
