“The electronics are really what make this puzzle possible.”
Always fun spotting Adafruit tech used in project videos by luminary makers! In the video (below) from Bob Clagett multiple reed switches hidden inside a globe initiate a countdown timer displayed on our own 4-digit 7-segment display, which also displays a ‘lockCode’ when all the reed switches are successfully activated – this code is then used to progress to the next puzzle.
Watch the video for a walkthrough of the circuit and also a bunch of tips & tricks for disassembling and modifying globes – and if you want to tinker with this build for your own puzzle the code is here on GitHub.
