The Scorbit platform can get game information from a variety of sources within the pinball machine, like the game’s display, CPU, memory, or directly from the software. Scorbit has designed special electronics, called Scorbit Probes, that connect to all these different sources across any time period. These Probes are able to monitor game data and send it to the Scorbitron, where it is converted to common score information before being passed along to the Scorbit service API. Applications on the phone or other platforms, web sites, and other software, can all see this game data in real time. After years of research and development, Scorbit created patented hardware and software specifically designed to speak to both vintage and modern machines.
