NEW GUIDE: John Park’s Mystery Box: The Nautical Crate Magnetic Lockbox @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit

This new guide in the Learning System is a mysterious mystery… It’s the Mystery Box: The Nautical Crate.  Follow it to build your own magnetically operated mysterious lock box for an escape room, scavenger hunt, magic trick, or bridal shower. ?

This simple-yet-effective method of building a mystery box uses only a solenoid, a reed switch, and batteries to create a locked box that can be opened using a carefully positioned magnetic key, hidden inside an object.
