The Teagueduino may look like a diorama of some sort, but there's more than meets the eye to this wonderful little contraption; think of the Teagueduino as a video game in a box. Using a variety of material such as circuit boards, speakers, lights, five inputs and ouputs, the team has managed to transform Super Mario into a low-tech game.

Instead of a screen with a controller, you get a box filled with a paper cardboard version of the classic Nintendo game. So how do you play this? The idea behind it is to use the knob to make Mario jump up and down and avoid obstacles as the background scrolls. It does get harder, because the scrolling will speed up as you go along.
