Last weekend I went to a travelling pinball art exibition hosted by a collector. I was surprised to see that many of the boards are very sexual. I talked to a few people there, including my father-in-law who was a pinball wizard of sorts and was playing when all of these games came out (especially the Bally's machines). Of course the obvious reasoning for putting up such lude boards is to get adolescent males to play.
There is an alright page with alot of this artwork here: Link. Note especially the art of Paul Farris. On a sidenote, the older pinball machines had warnings that they are not to be played by minors. Also these 1950's boards had women in some pretty interesting outfits (like an off the shoulder shirt for a woman up to bat in a baseball game), kinda cool.

"Oh!" "Oh!" Orgasm comes at multiball, of course. The picture to snag part of is this one, making sure to include the bare-breasted alien, the skintight spacesuits, and the infamous Tube Shot: Link.

The tl;dr is that we got such exceptional capacity growth in the late 90s and early 00s we don’t need much more right now, so the focus since then has been on SSDs, networking, interfaces, etc, […]
