'Fun Pinball' is a new magnetic game that puts an contemporary twist on a classic arcade game. Developed by a group of industrial designers at Taiwan's National Yunlin University of Science and Technology, the game is designed to be both entertaining and educational.

Fun Pinball is made up of a series of magnetic tubes and tracks, which can be combined and exchanged to design a customized gravity-fed course for marbles. The game encourages children to be creative and to interact with other players as they arrange each of the pinball pieces. Through the movable pieces, the magnetic game helps to teach kids about preliminary physics. Fun Pinball is easy to set up and can be played on either a school white board or a household fridge.
