The Cyber Pusher is coming your way!

Bring coins, any coins, and play!

Still have a ton of coins from your last holliday? Or the holiday from your parents in 1987? Or did you just 3D print coins? Or are you still stuck with a bunch of worthless discotheque coins? Bring them and play the Cyber Pusher! 

And if you didn't bring any coins, use a 3D printer, cut out a coin, get some from the supermarket or rob a money transfer truck. There is also the option to cheat in creative and original ways as security of the device is negligable.

Cheating is part of the game. We ask you to device a new cheat, as there are ininite ways to cheat. This is a gallery of all cheats that have been documented so far. If you've found a new cheat, take a few coins as a reward and send your hack to @cyberpusher or The most inventive and fun hacks are displayed here shortly after the event.

Sensor triggering

Using a small piece of paper, the tripwire laser can be triggered. The machine thinks a coin is inserted.

Using a hook

With a simple cardboard cutout, a hook can be inserted from the payout slot. This can be used to insert prizes from the side into the playing field.

Using a rake

A hook with several coins attached can also be inserted. This allows you to rake the playing field and get a high payout.

Balloon air blast

A balloon can be inserted by squishing it between to pieces of paper through the crack in the front window. The balloon can then be inflated and might cause movement on the playing field.

Lock Picking

The Cyber Pusher uses a weak lock on the back. This can be easily picked to access the machines inner components. This contains moving parts and unshielded 220 volt wires(!).

Open the back

The mirror panel can be openened for servicing the playing field. It was used to insert prize tokens for players. You can just open it any time with ease.

Glass pane open

When the top glass pane is not correctly installed, it's easy to remove one of the front glass panes. This allows you to service the playing field yourself.

Your hack

There are still dozens of ways to cheat and hack this machine. You're invited to do so at your own risk. When succeeded, show off your hack to @cyberpusher and take a few cyber coins.
