Congratulations! You are the proud owner of a brand-new tablet! You just picked it up from the store, mind buzzing with all of the fun technological times ahead! The smooth, sleek lines and superior interface of your new tablet have you staring in awe every time you pick it up.
You want to take it to work, to show off your latest purchase to your coworkers. There's a big meeting scheduled, and a tablet like this will surely be a big help in the conversation.
There's only one problem... You forgot to buy a case for it!

Why so glum? There's a simple solution to your problem! Remember that huge box of K'nex that you bought the kids last Christmas? It can save your dreams of technological fun!
With the K'nex housed in that box, you can quickly build a high tech, super unique case that will have all your coworkers staring in wonder!
Hurry up and grab that box! You have some building to do!
