  • If you want to show some love to Obi... :)

    • Really amazing puzzle

    • +Rudie Jazz same

    • can you make your dog solve puzzles? those dog treat ones with multiple pockets and stuff.

    • @chris Ramsay what are in you're opinion the best deck of cards i am looking for prefurably a thiner deck, nice looking, feel well in hand while performing cardistry. my price range is 0-50$ USD

  • NO EXTERNAL TOOLS!!! Chris you messed up :P

  • What music did you use for this video ?

  • This is so weird n random but your handwriting is super cute

  • You have a such a nice kitchen #imjelly

  • the pen was already distorted you were hiding the distortion with your fingers lol im no magician but even i spotted that haha :)

  • "Blocked" off his day for this puzzle lol, nice one

  • 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.

  • I loved it. I have see a lot a lot lot of your videos and this is by far my favourite and now I know the pattern too. And I have a challenge for you to make your own puzzle.

  • 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.

  • This is more a towernof hanoi, than a binary puzzle

  • I love your puzzle videos please keep me coming !👌🏻

  • 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. 000001 000010 000011 000100 000101 000110 000111 etc.

  • check me out that my dog buddy

  • my guess based on the name and the current pattern, its based on binary 000000 100000 010000 110000 001000 101000 011000 111000 000100 100100 010100 110100 001100 101100 011100 111100 000010 100010 010010 110010 001010 101010 011010 111010 000110 100110 010110 110110 001110 101110 011110 111110 000001 and of course I realize after this I type ever single number backwards

  • They need to make a non binary puzzle too so everyone can play.

  • Where did you buy your hoodie?😲

  • one to the one to the tree

  • And BOOM

  • 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.

  • posting my guess as 1,2,1,3,2,3~ etc

  • love the background music

  • I like this guy.

  • I need that sweatshirt, where can I find it?!

  • Im in love with it wow

  • Your videos are so satisfaying to watch. I love watching every single vidoes you are uploading :) . I'm a Filipino Fan of yours hoping to catch your attention, lol😂. Ganna subscribe to your channel now 😁

  • Video starts 2:33

  • tis a good boi .o.

  • This reminds me of The Brain puzzle.

  • 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.

  • Wondering whether the patterns on the sides were enough to solve it without your sticky numbers, seeing as the sides had a pattern.


  • my guess after 7:02: 1,2 1,3; 1,2 1,4; 1,2 1,3 1,2 1,5; 1,2 1,3; 1,2 1,4; 1,2 1,3 1,2 1,6.

  • This dude is my long lost best friend. He just doesn’t know it. Yes I know, this comment sounds weird and creepy

  • Where can I get that sweater?

  • I need this music.

  • Geez, and the only way I can solve a crossword puzzle is to wait a week for the answers to come out.

  • you need to write down the sequences somewhere. 1>2, 1>3, 1>2, 1>4

  • It's amazing how you can solve all these puzzles I'm already struggling with messed up earbuds

  • 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

  • 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) _3: 000011 (1) _4: 000100 (3) _5: 000101 (1) _6: 000110 (2) _7: 000111 (1) _8: 001000 (4) _9: 001001 (1) 10: 001010 (2) 11: 001011 (1) 12: 001100 (3) 13: 001101 (1) 14: 001110 (2) 15: 001111 (1) 16: 010000 (5) 17: 010001 (1) 18: 010010 (2) 19: 010011 (1) 20: 010100 (3) 21: 010101 (1) 22: 010110 (2) 23: 010111 (1) 24: 011000 (4) 25: 011001 (1) 26: 011010 (2) 27: 011011 (1) 28: 011100 (3) 29: 011101 (1) 30: 011110 (2) 31: 011111 (1) 32: 100000 (6)

  • You covered the twist in the pen with your fingers. Hmmmmm cmon Chris...BLOW MY MIND

  • Hey Chris, just subscribed been watching the puzzle vids to keep an active mind . Great channel! maybe the sides have differences in them that you need to look closer at. striping or wood grains could be different

  • name of the background song?! 5:03

  • It took him 7:09 to figur it out

  • Eye candy much 🤩😍


  • How about that Excalibur tho?

  • Tfw you don't know what binary means

  • But can he solve a rubik's cube?

  • 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.

  • Who here is subbed for the puzzle vids!

  • Oh god I expected a boxer or something but it's a tiny dog

  • Bruh I love watching your vids while I do homework

  • Gay


  • I want my cells back

  • Elegantly done, Ramsay.

  • A binary box

  • 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.

  • I think you might be intelligent.

  • First move like the vide Second subcribe Third like this comment Fourth leave a comment

  • This is fake.

  • next step excalibur? ;)

  • I'm the only one who thought the title read "how to solve a non-binary Japanese puzzle"

  • Hey Chris, great content! Im a US marine stationed in okinawa and i gotta tell you, when i get bored here i can always rely on your videos to occupy my time and actually be interested in something. Keep up the amazing work with these puzzles!!

  • 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 1000

  • Prediction: 6:57 12131214121312151213121412131216

    • 10:42 Hm, I guess it doesn't help that I've known this pattern for a little less than 4 months.

  • lol my dogs named obi too, after star wars lol

  • There are way more than two genders!

  • In the intro how did the Luxor’s lens logically work

  • 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.

  • Poggers

  • I always see these puzzles as great stash ports for weed🤗

  • Dude ur 46 on trending pat on the back

  • *DiStOrTiNg*

  • Oh NO NO the portal to hel-. Pinhead: why helo

  • Someone tell me where I can find the music he uses! It’s beautiful 😍

    • Bikboi Griefer shazam it with your phone 🙃😊

  • 1213? Thought Binary means only 0 and 1

  • Yeah i can Google how to do it too.

  • Sheldon Cooper had one of these to hide his flash drive when he was traveling by train, and Penny just broke it to get to hit. Thus, it requires one move to open.

  • You're crazy how you solved that so quick. I got lost by the forth piece found

  • Maybe you should put ur cam on ur face as well bcus it seems like you keep pausing to look at a guide on ur phone. Seems fake

  • I sexually identify as a puzzle box

  • The plastic acts a bit like water but the distortion changes when you rotate it. There was a really famous experiment done but I forgot what it's called.

  • Glad you are feeling better man. Awesome puzzle. Gonna try and find it.

  • 1:36 he got em culturism poses

  • He was holding the pen at the twisted part when he was showing it

  • Psh...I can do it in 12. Wit my butt cheeks.

  • ...

  • Hello, Humans. Can you see the sun, while it shines in your eyes? The sun is powerful. It has claimed the lives of countless beings throughout the universe. The sun is alive. It knows what it knows and it feels what it feels. It only knows heat and rage. One day, the sun will explode and all life will stop. Sometimes in life.......🌞 TERRANCE OUT

  • He just twisted the pin you can see kept hold the part with the twist

  • Unless your dog does magic like you, keep him off camera.

  • The puzzle is counting in binary. Out is 1 and in is 0. It's actually really ingenious.

  • It would have taken me like three years to figure that out ... but good job bro😂😂

  • Glad to see you’re doing good after magic Chris

  • i do not understand the math you did but congratulations 😂😂

  • Trending!!!

  • Stickers is totally not cheating.
