Ben takes a viewer suggestion to make a coin-operated power strip so kids can earn tokens for game play.
Get a coin-operated gaming system to regulate your kids gaming time! More chores = more tokens = more gaming time. It's a win for everyone.
Ben talks with Tony Martin about his coin operated game system idea.
Ben demonstrates a solid state relay, then begins wiring a circuit.
Ben demonstrates how to flash your own Arduino chips to cheaply embed them in things.
A box is designed to hold the coin mech, electronics and power strip. Ben then assembles the unit.
Ben demonstrates the unit at home.
