Beating 5 Scam Arcade Games with Science

  • Published on Sep 16, 2022
  • I built 5 robots to beat the 5 most popular arcade games. If you want to unlock the magic of engineering in your life, go to Studio.com/Markrober (for teenagers and older) OR Crunchlabs.com/MarkRober (for teenagers and younger).
    And if you want that backpack (minus the contraptions to win all the games), you can find it here- markrober.store/collections/b...

    I'm trusting you guys with to use the PEZ trick responsibly!! And I know it's been a hot minute since I've posted, but my videos take a lot of work and I've got 3 more BANGER vids to drop before the end of the year!

    The fact that your chances of wining at a casino are better than at an arcade is really messed up

    As a child I heavily and unknowingly got a public library an enormous remodel. I would find my books and check out, my little sister would be in story time. I would sit by the door and watch the numbers on the counter go up as I swished my hand back and forth past what is apparently called the beam break detector, running the number up by sometimes hundreds in an afternoon. We moved before the expansion so imagine my surprise when we went back years later and the library had expanded, they had added a park out back and my mom and one of the main workers who was still there informed me of the roll my bored playing around had had in it

    I'm on my 4th year of engineering college and still have no idea how you come up with 99% of your ideas. You're a huge inspiration to me and one of the reasons I'm still pushing through both majors.

    All these projects in just a single video, I can't say anything else, I can see a lot of work, so respect for the work! Must have spent a lot of time, thinking about the projects, then figuring out how to solve them and after that filming them professionally. Great video!

    Mr. Rober, I appreciate and love these videos. I love the fact you discuss often your way of thinking during your videos. I teach a Technology Education and robotics classes and use a lot of your videos as introductions. They are always very enjoyable. Thank you for taking the time to do these.

    I used to work on gaming and arcade machines and I've known about the programmable win percentage or sometimes random win for years and tell everyone.. but people don't listen.

    Imagine people coming into the arcade and wondering how they could ever beat the record on the machines...

    I find It cool that he’s showing us how he made them without actually showing us😂

    Imagine being an Arcade worker and seeing the same guy on the security feed 9 different times in 1 day with slightly different backpacks everytime.

    Absolutely some of the best content on Flash-Player, period. Love working with PI's and Arduinos myself, so this is just complete nerdgasm.
