Formholzkicker / Foosball redesign

Formholzkicker
Formholzkicker

The purpose of redeveloping a foosball table is to simplify it. The rink is costumed of plywood.
A quick and comfortable changing of the figures is due to a new assembly technology.
Every goal is signaled by a xylophone sound. After a gool is scored the the ball rolls underneath the rink into a window in the middle of the table.
This will allow the score to be read and cheating is out of the question.
Shifting a lever will allow all balls to fall into a pillar.
If the ground is uneven the rink can be adjusted and leveled. At the height of 95cm the table is higher than a normal foosball table to prevend back issues.
