PinCade Console

Love my Picade for arcade and emulators but now looking at virtual pinball (FX2, FX3, VPX)

Any thoughts on converting a Picade Console for Pinball use. My initial thoughts are obviously Flipper buttons on the sides and then a tilt sensor and force feedback would be amazing.

Anyone have any ideas as to how I could achieve this?

Thanks

There’s already buttons on the side you could use for the flippers. You could probably add some kind of motion sensor for the tilting: https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/lsm303d-6dof-motion-sensor-breakout. Force feedback is a lot more problematic though, I’m not sure you could get a motor controller on the same Pi that has the Picade HAT.
