Scorbit is a connected pinball platform that enables the tracking of scores from a pinball machine to the Internet via a hardware device called the “Scorbitron.” Installing a Scorbitron in a pinball machine ranging from modern pinball machines to DMD machines to solid state machines, enables the ability to track scores, progress and other data points and upload that date to the Scorbit app platform. Scorbit has successfully been deployed in professional pinball tournaments such as the San Francisco City Champ tournament and INDISC.
