This is a puzzle built primarily for Escape Rooms. It will be customized to a 4 digit or 4 letter sequence that you provide
The goal for your guests is to find the secret code. When discovered , the code can be used in whatever manner the Escape Room desires, such as perhaps the combination to a lock or door. Or perhaps a 4 letter word that is needed in the next puzzle challenge.
The box 6" x 6" x 3" box is solid and will not open. It is also empty. On the bottom size is a hole large enough to easily fit a finger. Around the outer sides of the box are the digits 0 to 9 with their braille equivalent. Your quests will no doubt wonder what an empty box is for!
There is a secret inside the box though...
The bottom of the box has the numbers 1 to 4 laser engraved at 90 degree intervals around the center hole. If one sticks a finger in the box and feels under each of these locations, a series of raised dots can be felt. Eureka!
However, now those raised dots must be interpreted to numbers using just your finger senses combined with braille table glued to the sides of the box.
This is a fun and unusual way for your guests to find a code. PLEASE PROVIDE ME WITH THE 4 DIGIT NUMBER SEQUENCE YOU WOULD LIKE THE BOX SET TO.
The design was the result of an Escape Room owner asking us if we could build something so that a blind person could actively participate in the Escape Room Experience. Though a sighted person can solve this; the edge would certainly go the person who can read braille with their fingertips!
