Solutions: The Hex Factor v2009 (Level B100)

Aaah, the agonizing USB device created by Didier...

As a reminder: the device consisted of a LCD display and 3 sensors. These sensors needed to be activated in a specific sequence in order to input a PIN code. When the correct PIN (correct sequence) was used, the device displayed a secret code.

We saw people yell at it, heat it and even rub it in vain. Today we give you the correct activation method for the sensors, as well as the correct order in which to use them.

Sensor 1: Activated by touching it
Sensor 2: Activated by lighting it
Sensor 3: Activated by using a magnet

The correct activation order to display the secret code was: 1 - 2 - 3 - 2 - 1. The secret code displayed was "KRIEK" also known as the Belgian Beer for Pussies
