Something flew into my eyes while I was watching that.

Never underestimate the spirit of a child. I hope parents look at this. I every hovering, overprotective, controlling parent out there sees this. I also hope every spoilt brat iPhone, Xbox, PS3 kid out there sees this. Caine moved a box and ended-up inspiring an entire neighbourhood. Quite the butterfly effect.

I wish Caine the best in his future. One day a box, maybe next day a skyscraper or something we'd never imagine.

There's a lot to learn here.

This is the kid who would rather build the game than play it. That's why he's going to likely go far as an adult :)

Impressive, somebody give this kid a grant!

And this is nothing, if anyone has been on Kickstarter, you will have seen the Viper(BSG) flight simulator my friend is building with his family in the garage.

It is ingenious, but should he really be making $100,000+ from it?

By the time Caine is old enough for college who knows how astronomical tuition will be, and a kid like this has a mind that shouldn't go to waste.

I hope this moment in his life inspires him to attain great success in his future!

Funpass = $2
From that flash mob let's say around 100 people came. 2x100 = $200
He basically earned $200. I highly doubt people payed $1 or a nickel for every try. 99% of them most likely paid for the funpass.

In the end, $100,000 is an over exaggeration. He deserved that #200 that he earned.

I think he was referring to the donations to his college fund, in which I would reply, why not?

Better than giving it to EA for generic shooter 12.

That kid is amazing and Im glad to see people not only recognizing his ingenuity but taking the extra time to let others know as well. Thank you MPC for sharing that.

If game developers nowadays had the level of ingenuity this kid had, imagine the type of titles they could release with the multimillion dollar budgets they have...

Impressive; but can any of the machines play Crysis?

The Corrupted One

I have always wondered why I have never seen any arcade machines running modified PC games(unless you count that super cool Half Life 2 machine).

Do you count Time Crysis 2. (geddit?)

This is an unusual article for MPC but I really liked it. That's a cool video. It's great to see people taking interested in something a kid is doing and promote it, there seems to be less and less of that these days.
