ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
[Video Link] Young Ezra saw Nirvan Mullick's Caine's Arcade video and was inspired to make this neat cardboard pinball machine, using Makedo cardboard fasteners.
When asked about this, young Caine replied, ”
I will spend my last dying breath if I need to, and I will spend every penny of Caine’s Arcade’s $170,000 in the bank, to right this wrong. I’m going to destroy Ezra, because it’s a stolen product. I’m willing to go thermonuclear war on this.”
I can think of a few reasons I’d be happy to put a couple of dollars in this pinball machine:
(1) I’m a lifelong fan of pinball who hasn’t been able to get a fix for a long time (pinball machines are becoming increasingly hard to find)
(2) I did this sort of thing as a kid, and this brings back fond memories
(3) Such clever use of compact discs deserves to be rewarded
Once again, this is the creative power of boys not yet crushed by the educational system.
What does the cup on the left hand side of the game do? The game is cool, we need a refinement to the flippers.
