    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.

    One day I hope to bless the world with a design to help people with big hands eat pringles.

    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.
    Glad someone influential like mark has spread the word.

    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.
  • 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!

    There’s something about having a huge wad of “physical” tickets that makes it more rewarding/satisfying than having them just loaded onto a card. At least with the card it’s more discreet though.

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

    You are a MAD scientist! I mean that as a compliment! Thank you for sharing your joy! :)

    20:06 this is beautiful. being rick rolled always makes my day. thank you mark. BTW i just had an idea for a water bottle that uses the same principle used by Segway and One-wheel to roll itself to you if you forget it and leave it somewhere.

    Mark: "Don't hold the air hockey thing like this, but rather like this for more momentum"
    Also Mark: Holds it the way he told us not to.

    Imagine people coming into the arcade and wondering how they could ever beat the record on the machines...
  • Absolutely some of the best content on Youtube, period. Love working with PI's and Arduinos myself, so this is just complete nerdgasm.

    You put way too much effort in things like this.
    Love it.
  • I gotta throw this out there. I love your workstation where you have your tools hung up. I want to build the same thing for my company (I fix consoles and controllers). Any chance on getting the mesurements?

    Mark, your self discipline and skill is apparent in every video. You are great! Keep it up! 😃

    I’ve said my whole life “arcades are casinos for kids but with zero regulation”
