Styn [samvandoorn.net] is a reinterpretation of a pinball machine as a "design tool".

After a grid-like poster is placed on top of the pinball machine, players are invited to create their own, personal poster-size drawings. By playing the machine, the balls create an unpredictable pattern, which is dependent on the interaction between the player and the machine. As a result, better players can achieve better posters.
