There are eight gadgets in all, and they vary greatly in their difficulty to construct. Simpler gadgets are made of three parts, and the tougher gadgets are made of up to seven parts.
However, you have help! If any of your friends have found this same secret room, you can see the item that they found there. If you'd prefer the item that a friend found - perhaps it's...
