There really is no need for a review from any product that comes from Joao. Quality products quality man.

I would like to stress that as far as I am concerned honest, critical reviews are ALWAYS appreciated.
Please check regularly if you are becoming the type of magician Jerry Seinfeld jokes about. (This applies to mentalists as well.)

I can not believe that this will be the case, since the parcels went out only on 17 December and the
shipping companiesare currently totally overloaded and it comes to imensen delays of a delivery ...

I have to say, I’m not impressed. The removal of the card is very unnatural looking; the placement of the fingers and the sudden, snappy motion of jerking the card from the box looks odd. Tommy Wonder’s card box is so much more natural and mysterious. Or, I think a simple paper clip switch (a la Jay Sankey) is much better. I understand if someone wants the aesthetic of a clear box for their routine, but the actions just really stand out as unnatural, in my opinion.
It's all in the reflexes.

I agree with Illucifer, Paperclipped is very organic. I have V1 of Vision Box, but won't be putting out more money for an improvement and owning 2 boxes.

I can't agree at all, the handling is not suspicious or particularly noticeable to a viewer unfamiliar with magic.
And another method can be used which is even more inconspicuous. I have the Mystery Solved box and never
really warmed up to it, and I'm sure Vision 2.0 is much easier and more foolproof to use. The upcoming field
reports will bring final clarity. I believe Vision 2.0 will be a great item.

Totally agree with this. Use Sankey's Paperclipped and put it under an inverted wineglass. Same trick, better/easier handling IMO.

OSYN is even better than Paperclipped. I can't say enough good things about that nice.

OSYN? I give up..... what does that stand for?

"I can't say enough good things about that nice" What does this mean?

sorry that I'm confused. I have been awake for 40 hours straight though. Maybe that's why.

OSYN:

Apparently discontinued, which is a real shame.

"Nice" is apparently autocorrect for "move.”

Oh yes, that video is garbage. The "blank to thought of card" effect is okay, but the switch itself is beautiful, practical, and versatile. It's "Paperclipped," but you can show your hands empty during and after. Just pay attention to the very end of the video, where he switches the bill, and imagine doing that with a card.

I really like the look of this switch over the one in the demo, much more natural and no jerky movements. I hope something like this is explained in the video as an additional handling.

I suspect the handling by Daortiz works better with video frames and is not suitable for the real world.
