This intricate box is an old-school porn collector’s dream

When it comes to hiding porn, the computer has revolutionized the game. Gone are the days of stashing magazines and VHS tapes under a mattress, or in that box in the closet. Now, we can easily encrypt entire drives, folders or files containing all our ‘for your eyes only’ material.

But there are still a great deal of people that don’t really ‘get’ computers and probably a few more that still aren’t buying into the hype surrounding them. For those types, there’s apparently a thing that exists, at least according to this faceless guy demonstrating it on Imgur.

The box itself doesn’t appear to be mass-produced, and there are countless others in the ‘puzzle box’ niche that serve similar purposes.

Each are amazingly intricate and provide some seriously artesian craftsmanship. But as this Redditor pointed out, there’s a robot that would make short work of them.
