Who Invented The Pinball Machine

 


For many in the baby boom generation, the pinball machine brings a lot of childhood memories.
It seems as if the machines came from nowhere in the 1950s and were brought fully into popular culture with its inclusion in the Who's rock opera Tommy (with Elton John as the Pinball Wizard).

The true history of the pinball machine is much longer, but it's still fun. The first roots of modern pinball game back to a 18th century French salon, called Bagatelle. Players take turns to shoot the balls into small holes located around the field, using a small signal. The game eventually made its way to the United States, where he became so popular that it represented political cartoons played by President Lincoln.

The next step in the evolution of modern pinball can in 1870 when the Cincinnati toy maker Montague Redgrave replaced the small sign with a spiral spring powered plunger. The plunger device is still in use today. In determining the position of the piston, the space needed to play the game dropped considerably, allowing it to fit against and tapas bar. It also removed much of the coordination required to play. If I could turn back the plunger, you can play pinball.

The first real pinball machines have been developed in and around Chicago at the time of the Great Depression. The units are tilted, the marble used was replaced by the familiar steel balls and the wicket classic (similar to croquet) were replaced by pins. David Gottlieb Pinball Pioneers and Ray Moloney (founder of Bally) wanted to provide some fun for those living through the Great Depression, and pinball was your game of choice. A few years later, in 1942, Harry Williams invented the device "Tilt" to avoid the traps and, finally, in 1947, the flap was introduced by Harry monoclonal antibodies (although it would be Steve Kordek the first to put two flaps on the bottom of its "Triple Action" game. In the 1950s the modern pinball machine was born.

Technical improvements of pinball machines in the 60's, 70's and 80's included the introduction of the drop down targets of different size numbers (and from) the fins, different types of defenses and improve rating systems now allowed multiple players to compete against each other. Finally, pinball machines were electronic computer chips replacing mechanical relays. Better lighting, and increase the number of lights and the music just added to the fun.

So while the 1950s were really the golden age of pinball machines, it took nearly 80 years of development so they can be born.
