    i feel like the younger you are the easier it is. your mind thinks a little more out of the box, im 14 and figured this out by the second... go at it ... for lack of better words.

    Someone with a computer science background would have discovered it just from the first 6 moves. However, the most intriguing thing is how the creator could come up with the analog mechanism that work with the binary sequential pattern. Guys at karakuri sure are amazing.

    Still watching this, but I think binary was the biggest hint. The position of each face seems to be like an "on/off", and the sequence fits binary counting, where I'm at so far. If you think of face 1 as the ones place, face 2 as the twos place, face 3 as the 4s place, and so forth, the pattern you have to reach to unlock each new face reflects counting in binary.

    Was the sheet of plastic polarized? Also, have you ever seen trick pens? They have a band of thinner plastic around the part that gets 'distorted' and that piece of plastic shrivels with heat.

    people who understand binary would have solved this easy. its all in knowing how binary counts. that was the trick and only hint to the puzzle. but if you don't know binary, then it would understandably take someone longer.

    so the magic trick is easy for the distortion for the pen, if you notice, he is holding the pen in the area that the distortion takes place, making the trick, a trick of the hand

  • Rafael Perrella

    Greymoonbros posted the right solution (Gray-code), but there is a simpler "hack" to this problem. You can solve it just by knowing how to count (in binary).
    If you've made N moves so far, the face to be moved in move N+1 is the bit that becomes 1 (from right to left) when going from number N to number N+1 in binary. Easier to understand with an example: you've made 9 (b1001) moves so far. So in move 10 (b1010) you would move face 2, since that's the bit that becomes 1 when going from b1001 to b1010.
    Table in format [: ()]
    _0: 000000
    _1: 000001 (1)
    _2: 000010 (2)

    Considering it is called a binary puzzle, my guess is counting up where the first digit is side 6, 000001, 000011, 000010, 000110, 000111, 000101, 000100, etc.

    We have a same kind of dog as you. My parents had to cut his ears short IN OUR HOUSE! I was in my room not knowing. Once my sister told me calmly. I went down and felt sad. Blood was on a cloth. I saw his ears. I went up and not cry really but just felt sad. He is weak because of blood loss I think. He is okay but this kind of tape like band aid is holding it up forcing it. I feel really sad.

    It might make more sense to label the faces 1,2,4,8,16,32. Then you can see that you are counting up binary numbers.

    For people that doesn't know how binary works
    We use the decimal system (base 10)(0-1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9) wich has 10 numbers so each position is x10 the previous position form right to left.
    after we reach 10 in a position, we put 1 to the next position and 0 in the current position

  • cube11235
    cube11235 7 days ago

    If the sides of the box are labeled correctly, the side that needs to be moved on step M of the solution can be determined from the binary representation of M. The binary representation of M is a compact way to express it as a sum of powers of 2. The smallest power of 2 in that sum will be of the form 2^N. The side that needs to be moved is N + 1. For example, side 4 needs to move on step 24. In this case, M = 24 (decimal) = 11000 (binary) = 2^4 + 2^3. The smallest power of 2 in the sum is 2^3 so N = 3. Therefore side 4 needs to move.
