Spacecase is an escape room in a suitcase
March 11th, 2021—
Escape rooms can be a lot of fun, though with today’s conditions, you may instead be staying at home. As seen in the video below, the Spacecase gives you the best of both worlds as an entirely portable escape “room” in a box.
The Spacecase consists of only a hard suitcase, along with a NASA tote bag. Each of these contain different elements that allow you to “repair your spaceship and escape before you and your crew run out of oxygen.”
Inside the bag is an emergency power module, which must be opened to reveal the key to the suitcase, and plugged in to power it. Hidden within the suitcase is about 20 puzzles that are solved interactively via the Arduino Mega-based electronics under the control panel.
The build features voice feedback, as well as a variety of knobs, LEDs, switches, and more, providing what looks like a fun and challenging puzzle to get your spaceship off the ground!
