Today I discovered first hand that modern pinball machines can just straight up crash. By crashing one

Why does the pinball machine run android????

@benjojo that's hilarious! I only knew of one older Williams pin that could crash (really just unexpectedly reboot) due to an unhandled broken switch compensation. I forget which game it was. Normally the game will detect a bad target switch and compensate by stacking its award on another working one nearby, but on this one someone forgot to specify the target for compensation and it caused the whole game to reboot!
