We’ve all had a game console before. But the problem is that new versions are always coming out.
What if we make our own console with games?

We make a console and controller from cardboard.
We design the console around the Tokymaker. In the controller we can insert some sensors
Because we want to make it easy for you, we have a previewed example below.


Let us then program the game “tug or war”. The aim of the game is to get the ball in your half of the screen. This is obtained by pressing the push button.
Whoever can control the buttons the fastest will win the game. The color of the on-head LED changes depending on the winning player

The inputs are :

  • 2 buttons (IN1 & IN2)

The outputs are :

  • speaker (OUT1)

In the controller we have processed the push button inside so the clicking is done by pressing on the right side of the cardboard.



Learn to code your own prototypes using the simple visual coding interface and just one finger and program it without installing software or connecting cables.


A push-button or simply button is a simple switch mechanism for controlling some aspect fort he input.


We can find cardboard everywhere. Look around and you’ll find it.





A buzzer or beeper is an audio signalling device.

Cutting knife

We can use scissors or a cutting knife for cutting the cardboard.




The cables are needed to make the connections between sensors and the inputs.

Amazing gadget! I got it as a present from a friend and I’m still amazed. It only took me about an hour to assemble, and now I’m experimenting with its possibilities. Kudos! Héctor
