Anatomical Pinball Table Combines 2 Of My Favorite Things

Via Boingboing.net 

Canadian artist Howie Tsui redesigned a pinball machine to turn it into a crude simulation of a musket-ball rattling around a soldier’s guts for a War of 1812-themed exhibition currently running at the Agnes Etherington Arts Centre at Queens University in Kingston. It’s meant to demonstrate the way that repetition and concentration can inure you to the horrors of war.

This would have been Awesome+1 if the flippers were leg bones.
