NEW PRODUCT – PinBox 3000 by Cardboard Teck Instantute


Pinball nerds rejoice! The PinBox 3000 is a flippin’ fun gamer-maker kit for anyone who loves pinball and DIY. Its sturdy yet customizable construction gives maker-players of all ages infinite design possibility! Our Adafruit PinBox is decked with pink spray paint and our favorite stickers. Ah, simply marble-ous

Each kit comes with everything you need to build your PinBox 3000. Also included are two extra playboards for you to arts-and-craft-to-your-delight two separate pinball games. No extra tools required. Check out the graphics printed on the negative space of each cardboard slide for inspiration! Takes about one hour or less to assemble. But once you finish one, you’ll want to start assembling another – two PinBox 3000 games can be latched together for two player BattleMode!

While you could just build and play (and we would not blame you if you did!) we think this kit could benefit greatly by electronic customization. Grab some copper foil tape and Circuit Stickers to make a colorful flashing pinball box. Or maybe add a Circuit Playground Express to help keep score and play some cool tunes. Customize and play with friends to show off your ‘tronix skills.

Includes:

  • 12 die cut slides containing 39 essential parts
  • 30 box rivets
  • 12 rubber bands
  • three marblesone hook tool, one mini pencil, one hole puncher
  • die cut extra parts for classic pinball layout
  • Assembly guide (take a looksie at Cardboard Teck’s real-time assembly video at pinbox3000.com)

Note: Stickers not included, but we have a nice sticker set!
