Cardbox, pinball and DIY

That’s not something I usually do, advertising for other project is not really my goal, but I really like this one, find it really interesting, I’ve got a good contact with the creators, and I really want to see it to be successful.

So this is a project about pinball, card box and do it yourself.

Two strange guys, Pr Pete and Pr Ben from what they call the Cardboard Teck Instantute have made a nice and working blank tabletop pinball table made only of card box, rubber band and rivets, no glue or any complex tools needed: The PinkBox 3000 !

 

During the Kickstarter they also sell some ready to build pre-made tables:

And here is a gif of the blank table and some table made by them or other people:

And to be clear, I’m not paid to do this (even if it would be nice for working on my projects :-P) on the contrary, I backed that project and I would really want to see it completed!

So please if you find that project interesting, please help them by backing it 🙂

A new toy

I should got it 6 month ago, but my friend forgot to take it, but now I got a new gadget!

It seems pretty rare, the only other know as shown on ebay, sold by a Dutch guy see here

This is basically a true Famiclone (not a NES-on-Chip)  with a PC card that convert composite to VGA. I haven’t tested it yet as I don’t have a ISA PC right now, but as it does not use the PC at all, I would just need a +5V and -12V :-/ to powerup the ISA board that power up the Famiclone.

More to come later 🙂

Fantasy Life: The latest Level5/Nintendo big joke

The title of this post may seems a bit overwhelm, as I will not directly speak about the game, but about something this game is currently hiding.

For those who aren’t aware, Fantasy Life is the latest RPG from Level 5 release to the Western World. Level 5 are known for their work on their work on the Dragon Quest games, the Professor Layton games and a lot of other games on Nintendo systems.

But like I said, the problem is not the game itself or its gameplay, not who made it, but a deep problem about how the Nintendo 3DS is working, and Fantasy Life is maybe not the first game to do this (but I suspect this is fairly new), but will, I’m sure will not be the last.
