The Last of the Pinball Doctors in NYC

In the age of home videogame consoles and dead arcades, Motherboard interviews Pinball Technician, Mike Hooker.

Interestingly enough, WSJ did a piece on Mike seven years ago. Back then there were around 750 people in the US who could repair pinball machines. Although I wonder if there are more now given the popularity of “barcades” in cities.

If you’re into classic arcades and pinball machines, check out the Strong Museum of Play in Rochester NY. They have an amazing collection of arcade games, and an awesome exhibit on Pinball Machines.
