By popular demand I have shirts now! I picked the super soft, high quality shirts and make $0 on all items which is why they are priced so handsomely 🙂

Summary: I built a machine to win an arcade game every time that was super accurate. In doing so I accidently discovered that this arcade game is totally rigged.



I make videos like this once a month all year long while supplies last:

    This was one of those videos that turned out way different than my original plan. It feels good to use scientific rigor to get a definitive answer to something that people often speculate about. Shoutout to pet.t.on and Surfncdog and for guessing the purpose of the machine from a picture on my Instagram. If you want stuff more than once/month, come join me there @markrober!

      Mark Rober I made practically the same thing for a key machine that had $300 for a winner. So, I went in and had my back pack (more like a small gym bag) tried it with an lcd screen to adjust my delay. No luck at all. Wasted $20, but it was very fun to build especially when my GF’s father who has an aerospace engineering degree (Doesn’t even use it) was with us to see how I made the machine and how I coded it! I love this video brings back memories!

      Mark Rober I wonder if your machine will work on the stacker?

      It unsubscribed me from your channel and I misssed three vids I’m mad

      It was awesome to see such a scientific approach to games that we play a lot. This made the engineer in me very happy. I have a spare rasberry pi 3 sitting on the shelf. You may have inspired me to see if I can come up with an arcade project with it. Great Video!

    You make science fun 🙂

    I never knew what i had to do in that game. Now i know, but I’ll think twice on playing it now lol.

    Well I want to learn science now

    I really appreciate that your videos work for both adults and kids. Sometimes I feel like I’m in the wrong demographic (your science fair video in particular comes to mind), but the content is always interesting enough to make that a non-factor. Thanks for making such consistently great work.

    My wife was right, I shouldn’t have wasted so much money on that game.

  17. Ty Dye says:

    Mark’s content is something I’ve ran across pretty recently and I have got to say that I am highly fascinated to be able to bring such a scientific experiment into not only an understanding statement but also an entertaining video
