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!

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
