    Caine's Arcade

    Found this movie today about an amazing kid. I wish I lived in LA to go visit this kid's arcade




    Absolute genius. This kid is definitely going places

    His security technique and claw machine = mind blown .....I'm 21 years old and this kid is more clever than I am with serious problem solving skills


    Stud kid and I'm glad he's getting the credit he deserves! I HAVE FAITH IN THE NEXT GENERATION NOW

    First of all, nice job spelling CAINE'S name wrong.. edit the title of the thread

    More seriously though, that is a genius idea. I remember making stuff out of cardboard but it would always get burned or thrown away when I made art.

    I knew someone was gonna point that out but i'm too noob to know how to edit it so if a mod wants to do it that'd be fabulous

    LOL. That's good for you.

    I have a big dream to achieve, a dream that is too huge for me because it needs a lot of investment etc etc etc. I always felt down by the reality that I don't have enough resources in term of funds and supports for my dream. This boy has inspired me that it is not about how to get enough resource to build your dream but to build your dream with whatever resources you got.

    Fabulous. The way I think about it, is its going to be easy when you have the endless amount of resources requirement. The ingenuity comes in when you can create so much with so little. And thats why I love this story. This kid has nothing and lives in a not so nice area, but took what he had and created a spectacular finished product. Fabulous story and kid

    If you noticed all his amazing ideas are all cheap solutions too. Like just knows how to look around and think hey how can I use this for my arcade in a way people might not expect it.

    Yeah, someone on that video commented that Caine is not as creative as some other childer who build something from Lego. God, that guy must never live his life like Caine's when you probably can't afford the cheapest lego. If Caine got Lego to support him, he would probably make a Legoland Arcade.

    The claw machine is the real mid-blowing idea. Then people thought it is easy to play. the football thing he showed in the video is really difficult actually bcs you use 1 finger to flick a big ball. The ticketing system is also great bcs he didn't just make an arcade but how to make it as real as possible.

    The only thing he should do better is the Fun Pass. 2 $ for 500 is too low in comparison with normal price 1 $ for 4 turns. He should have it at least 4-5 $. but, hell, the kid made his own business system with the Fun Pass. The fun pass shows that he knows how to lure customers.

    Hahaha i'm sure as he grows up he'll realize how to price his arcade games, but for now he's doing fine.

    You know they say a true sign of a genius is after discovering or designing something, its done is such a simple way, it makes you think to yourself......why didn't I think of that? And that's EXACTLY how I felt when I saw the claw machine.
