NEW GUIDE: John Park’s Mystery Box: The Freefall Deck @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit

Presenting the Mystery Box: The Freefall Deck, the second guide in John Park’s Mystery Box series. This innocent looking deck of playing cards contains a secret puzzle. When it is tossed into the air, and achieves a state of freefall, it reveals a hidden, audio Morse code message…

Perfect for escape rooms, magic tricks, and other mysterious events — this seemingly innocuous, sealed deck of cards contains a secret. When the puzzle is solved, the deck is thrown in the air, tossed to a friend, or dropped a short distance. Freefall is detected by the Circuit Playground embedded within, and the Freefall Deck beeps a secret Morse code message.

By fitting a Circuit Playground and a battery into a deck of cards (or other small container), you can create a variety of tricky, interactive puzzles. Follow the guide to build your own, or use it as a launching off point for a puzzle of your own devising. Use in for your next mysterious event!

You’ll also learn the mischievous art of stealing into a sealed deck of cards without leaving a trace…

Perhaps you could hide the Freefall Deck inside your own magnetic Nautical Crate lockbox


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
