Professors Ben t. Matchstick and Pete Talbot comprise the Cardboard Teck Instantute. We are designers, puppeteers, makers, and go-getters. We are the inventors of the PinBox 3000, a cardboard tabletop customizable pinball kit. We are the creators of Grottoblaster, a hip hop infused fantasy adventure interactive puppet spectacle. We create giant ephemeral cardboard sculptures and parade puppets. We are award winners from the World Maker Faire and National Maker Faire. We host summer camps and are frequent makers-in-residence at schools and after school programs. We are members of the Generator maker space in Burlington. We work in street show styles like Japanese kamishibai and medicine shows. We make comics and music. We are interdisciplinary. We are always excited to create and collaborate. Our mission is to Tilt the Future.
