Question: Does the box play a role at all or is it just a nice distracting accessory ?
Yes, the box plays an important role in both versions.

Re: Magic Wagon - Utopia Prediction Box

You are right Olaf (luckaly I saw your post before buying this one - thanks for helping me save my money!). I have the Dream Prediction box. This one is the same, but has a window. Yes Rob, with the Dream PB you can also do the ACAAN routine, no problem I heard from an experienced card artist that ...

Re: Magic Wagon - Utopia Prediction Box

Hi Rob, I have both Siam box and Dream Prediction. They are all the same basic effect, including this new version. I am going to pass on this one since it is so similar to the others I already have. The Siam box is really a gorgeous piece. They outdid themselves on that one with a nice wood inlay on...

Re: Magic Wagon - Utopia Prediction Box

Seems like something is missing in the description. Here is one where I would prefer to see a video of the performance.

I will wait for the reviews.

Re: Magic Wagon Triple Dice Vision now available

I had this one but sold it. I think it was 'over-engineered' along the lines of what John mentioned. It doesn't seem necessary to have colors, position and number all as variables. It just makes it more complicated for the performer to remember. The workings/mechanism, however is very nice. The vers...

I am with you Simon, I think this will really be great. I bought a set- but am a super fan of boxes, so it was a no brainer for me!

Re: Danny Cole On Penn And Teller

I saw this and liked it as well. I think it uses magnetic fields to hold the blocks in place. When he uses the pencil to 'knock' the block free, it sticks a little like being held in place by magnets, and I don't think a thread would provide this type of resistance. Also, they seem to lock in place,...

Nicely done Rob! The quality of the blocks looks much nicer in your video than in the photo (zoom helps).

Re: Unity Illusion by Tony Davies

This version works very differently than the Gerlitz version. I had to watch this one a few times, but have figured it out as well. It is much less complicated than the workings of the Gerlitz. The Unity Illusion is nice, and very deceptive but I don't care for the designs on the blocks. I think I s...

Re: Illusionarium

Yes, it is a neat idea. It looks like it is palmed and when he places the tube in his hand, it is loaded inside.
