The eevblog.com website isn't updating. It shows the latest video as #1077 - the tweeter episode.

What's the story?  Noticed it at the opening of the clown case.

FYI, in the Retroball game, the LED matrix is a COTS video wall module. Most likely HUB75 standard.

I'm guessing the pen that comes with the keypad is for writing on the keypad.

Looking at that old multimeter, I thought there's a candidate for an interesting restoration. A 3d printed back would solve one issue, but then you'd need to check if the rust had damaged the components.
