The Pixel Box is a currently unobtainable mechanism. It was originally supposed to be sold by the Mechanic.Verify

Example of a pixel box circuit. The left switch turns the box off, while the right switch turns it on.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Pixel boxes can be placed anywhere, even if a wall is not present, similar to Logic Gates. They are always placed in the off state, and can be broken by any pickaxe.

If a wire to the left or right of the pixel box is turned on, the pixel box will turn off. If a wire below or above the pixel box is turned on at the same time, however, the pixel box will turn on. Only turning on the wire below or above will have no effect. Wires must be placed on the pixel box in order for them to function. Pixel boxes that are on do not emit light, but always look fully illuminated.
