Take Home Message

What you see it not always what it is.

The meaning of each button is linked to their position (left or right) and not to their colours (yellow or gray). The colour of the buttons are arbitrarily swapped after every click. To enter the code, we do not need to look at the colours of the button to choose where to click.

To solve this level, you were expected to make hypotheses about the meaning of the buttons (colours, positions, etc), and check each hypothesis against the videos provided.
