During the course of his career, Oursler was granted several patents for innovations related to pinball games, such as the moving target bank in ''[[Pinball/PinBot Pin*Bot]]'' and the wrecking ball in ''Pinball/{{Junkyard}}''. He also worked on various experimental games, such as ''Rat Race'', a flipperless cocktail table game, and ''4-In-1,'' a modernized ''bagatelle'' game with interchangeable overlays.

Barry was laid off from Williams in 1996 during the production of ''Pinball/{{Junkyard}}''; he moved on to become a purchasing manager for Betson Imperial Parts and Service. Today, Barry lives in Ingleside, IL, where he works as an administrative assistant at Ecosure.
