ColorDMD is an LCD display designed to replace the traditional orange dot matrix displays (DMDs) used in pinball machines. Round dots are drawn to the LCD to emulate the original dots. Because it's an LCD, any color dot is possible. By adding in proprietary algorithms and hardware we are able to create a multicolor display to enhance older games designed originally with only one color.

Canceled last minute this year, we will have Dutch pinball give aways!
Dutch Pinball it all started with two guys from Holland with a passion for pinball: Barry Driessen and Koen Heltzel. For some time we had been thinking about starting some sort of pinball project, but it wasn't until april 2010 that we actually got the ball rolling. We heard about the P-ROC board and visited someone in Holland who had ordered it. Soon enough we decided we were going to order one too and try to develop brand new software for The Machine: Bride of Pinbot, that would feature a dot matrix display (originally it has alpha numeric displays) and was more appealing than the original (which is often considered a one-shot game). First we got our hardware sorted out by putting in a newer transformer, a DMD display and a DMD controller board (for powering the new display). Then we started developing new software and graphics. After that Jules Reivers joined our team to help with a very important - and yet missing - part of the game: music and sound effects!
