Hey Makers!

Occasionally we stumble across something fun and different which we think our readers will enjoy, and today’s find might be just the maker themed Christmas gift you’ve been looking for! While we haven’t tried this ourselves, we think the PinBox 3000, a DIY cardboard pinball machine, from Cardboard Teck Instantute looks like loads of fun and creativity in a box … from a box!

The kit comes with the cardboard and instructions to build a working pinball machine. But that’s just the beginning! The game can be customized in infinite ways. The folks at the Cardboard Teck Institute shared many resources to help you on your way including templates, graphics, teck, and videos.

To give you an idea of the build process, you can watch this assembly video.
