Caine's Arcade - Mady by 9 year old boy out of cardboard and packing tape

Caine's Arcade from Nirvan Mullick on Vimeo.

I today's high tech society it is refreshing to see a kid use his imagination to make something to entertain themselves. 

Some of my son's favorite "toys" were made out of boxes and packing tape, just like the 9 year old boy named Caine who spent a summer vacation make an "arcade" out of cast of items from his Dad's used auto parts.  He not only did it to entertain himself, but in true American entrepreneurial spirit, to start his own small business and entertain others next door to his Dad's shop.

He did not get much traffic until the filmmaker happened by the shop to look for a part for his car and visited the arcade and made Caine's dream of having a lot of customers come true. 

On the website the goal had been to raise $100,000 towards a college education and from the tracker, over $155,000 has thus far been raised.
