I tried all kinds of searches but I can't seem to find a thread on this.

Anyway, here's the product.
http://magicdirect.com/icube

You can watch the video if you know the answer to the "secret" question, to filter out the magicians and laypeople.

Any thoughts or reviews on this product?

Cheers!

Brilliant concept. Imagine, you get the spec to choose 4 colours and you can tell them exactly the order they chose them. Not cheap but I can see this selling very well.

Why, again, this is created for the Apple fanboys ?

I could ask the same question for Hugo's mind pad.. Why is THAT created for the android fanboys..? Smile

I guess there's always valid reasons why creators can or cannot do something, I'm pretty sure they would want it on as many platforms as possible, but due to unforeseen circumstances we consumers don't see it..

I bought this last year and soon sold it. Promystic's version is much better.

Care to briefly summarize why? I'm on the verge of purchasing this. Thanks in advanced!

Like, there isn't even a need to carry a receiver for icube, unlike promystic. That's having one less item to worry about.

Personally, I'd much rather have a receiv*r over a phone. To me, it's a lot more convenient on many levels. However, I'm sure many will get great mileage out of this.

That's what I heard too.

I love Hugo's SS 2.5 though.

The push notification bit is a stroke of genius. No one will notice that little number changing...your phone could be right in front of them the whole time negating its use as a possible method, if someone were to think that. If I could afford this, Id buy it in a flash.

Inconsistent and unreliable connections. Maybe it's been improved, I've no idea but I do know that there is already a product on the market that does this job flawlessly.

While I agree the PM is far better, I can't see what made you buy an inferior version of essentially the same effect ?

errrr.....thats $330 U.S. Sorry.

However, it looks fine to me. I do have SS 2.5 and that has worked flawlessly, so I'm not sure about the inconsistent thing. I would think they would have the transmission thing down by now. And the push notification feature pretty much makes this a no brainer for me. Not needing a thumper but having it on your phone if you choose to go that way sounds great.
