Working with local electronics whizzard Paul Hayes, Make Real and SOLVIN created an arresting One Armed Bandit machine to highlight the engineering feats achieved by Isambard Kingdom Brunel, balancing the various risk and reward factors of each.

Marrying Unity software development with custom-made electronics integrated into the physical cabinet was a task in itself, which is now successfully deployed as part of the wider exhibit - you can find out more about the process at the next Brighton Unity UserGroup (BUUG) meetup this month
