What a charming idea! My grandaughter and I are going to make one this weekend, when she comes over. Kids love stuff like that:) She's 8 years old and totally into arts and crafts stuff right now.
Thanks for the great idea :)

Responder #20: seek help...And FWIW, 5yr olds
will never give a flip for pinball. Maybe a
video game or a cel phone, but sadly, pinball
is soon to be something from the past.

Perhaps, responses such as the one above are what comes of future/educated “engineers and stoners” when they are just plain rude and stupid. For me, a mother whom has been screwing around trying to build an electronic pinball table for her five year old but has been stuck on a launch lever that he can actually manipulate, this demonstration was exceptional. Considering that I never once had to turn on volume to see his simple idea, I could care less if he were Mexican, governor or the inspiration for Deliverance. The only strange thing to point out about the video is that the latex gloves with no face shot made me think we were going to go “snuff” any second. You guys should use your time to add your bright ideas to comment sections and who knows, after reading a page of trash on an idea that I found both clever because of its simplicity and because of the fact that if he can whip something like this up out of trash and 1min. 40 sec. of time; I know exactly where this could go if turned into a class project or a play date project.—LED lights, pedometer counter, prank hand buzzer, hidden picture puzzle background with a magnifying plastic cover- a class contest to see who can improve upon the level using only trash- Thank you Mr. Man that posted the video. I love it and I hope that you inspire many more.
