I Like To Make Stuff : Yes, I said "LCD" instead of "LED". My bad. Any of the pieces would work in any of the locations (but the players don't know that). Regardless, all 4 locations have to be found to win.

Bob the Builder : That’s amazing dude! Keep it up!👍🏻

tim sway : Super cool, Bob!

John Made it : for Christmas i don't like to give my kids all their presents all at once (they don't appreciate them) so i was thinking to make some puzzles/maps/clues where they would find the answer to open a box and get their present.. this video has given me some ideas how to do it. Thanks

mine slime : You should add more metal on the inside, so the player can't figure it out that simple by sliding the magnet above the surface of the globe.

Александр ForestLamp : hat’s amazing dude! Keep it up!

Frank22 : *clever bob*

Marcus McFadden : I came over here from Grant Thompson. Lol you posted at the same time! 😂

mrman991 : This is how sponsorship should be done, awesome job :)

famitory : concept: a maker-centric escape room. the puzzles are all incomplete mechanisms and to solve the room, you have to build the rest of the mechanism using the parts and tools in the room

Rowdy Penguin : Bob. Dude. You just earned MAJOR cool points with this one. [like you needed more!] Very cool stuff. <(")

Crazilajimpers : Blessed like my nut!

sean liang : You and Grant posted video at the same time

Yuki Ross : That's cool but wouldn't the different objects work in the wrong location? Since at the end of the day you're just putting magnets on washers. Is there a way you could make the triggers object specific?

JD Armory : Hey bob, do you remember me from the maker fair? I also have a cool DIY Channel

Celeste Orchid : I just found you through Grant's and Lowe's videos. I'm totes now a subscriber! <3 Much love to a fellow DIYer <3

Serrasongs76 : I really do enjoy your videos I just think you speak too fast. I know that you want to make them a certain length but sometimes it's overwhelming to listen to, maybe just slow down a bit

MrMartiniMo : Nice Work! You can add some springs behind the drawer, so the drawer popps out automatically.That would be a nice effect. :)

The Wood Lab : That... is super cool. - Jim

Bruno Guedes : What happened to your spray-paint booth? Have you yet to unpack it? If memory serves, it's the second video in your new home in which you've spray-painted something out in the "open". Regardless, cool project!

ivraalia : This is awesome! The circuit board stuff blew my mind. Would it be a bad idea to add more washers and/or magnets inside to not only balance the globe, but also allow there to be more locations on the globe which could be incorrect to the puzzle. Just a thought.

Gustav & Hilda Holmström : To be honest, we're only here for the wobbly eyed soldering station.

Cassius Maenhout : Really usefull!👍

buci buci : Are you going to make more puzles?

Kostis Sotiriou : Hey Bob! This project was very good! Can you make more projects like this and cooperate with "Grant Thomson - The King of Random " to make more a super cool escape room? Please like if you agree with this fantastic idea.!

Dale Hawkins : Consider adding felt to the pieces so they don't rub on the globe and give away the locations over time.

Piercing Insanity 2 : Really cool idea! It always puts a smile on my face when you upload a new video :)

martin van Wezel : Realy cool. It makes for a great surprise gift packaging too...

drippingwax : Now you can make a horse! :)

CTY JHU : Ahh...The blue tape. Appears in every video innit?

Jelle Swaanen : It is a LED display, not a LCD display.

theMoporter : King of Random? No thanks, he's creepy

aaron c : Bob - what would stop people from just finding the places where the magnets would stick?  Would it be a good idea to put false locations in the globe?

Jaimin Nelson : Please make a full escape room!!!!

Rohit Nair : Hey Bob the project is awesome..great work..i had a doubt though,do i have to use the same 7 segment display that you have used with the arduino or any 7 segment display would work?

Aaron T : Hey bob since winter is coming you should try to make a snow skate

Max Chan : can you make something that can hang your snowboard plz

XANDER MIGHT : Soooooooo.....your the new jigsaw?

Brian Prusa : I need to practice my five minute epoxy technique. Man, you are fast!

The Redsmith : That's an awesome project Bob. Even better than your secret door. I love escape room games. Great one. I love it!!

Specific Love Creations : That is an awesome globe puzzle. I also watched the Lowes video and it was awesome to see you and Grant working together to help solve it.

Dylan's DIY Workshop : That is awesome! I love the jig you used to cut the globe in half! I would've hidden that switch for the globe better if you were using it in an escape room. You would'nt want the participants to be able to turn the whole thing off

The Wood Yogi : Great work Bob. Superb idea for a puzzle :) ॐ

MC's Creations : Really nice! Fantastic work! :D

MrHandwerk : Great idea ! Dadrauf you have to come first :) Best regards MrHandwerk!

Geeksmithing : Neat!!!!!!! I know Josh loved this!

Le PicBois : Brilliant!

Taamz Heart : I miss doing escape rooms.

Hubbard's Handmade : What a fun project!

Master of None : Really interesting puzzle and awesome use of arduino and old lock Bob.
