I've read all the reviews about the remote color cube by Tim Wisseman, but has anyone purchased the new mini? I'd appreciate any feedback.

I have one and it's totally awesome. the size is perfect and gets awesome reactions.

The one that is advertised as the mini-version looks black and sleek; whereas the original looks wooden and old-fashioned. To me, the older one looks less likely to have electronics. Is it just my unconsciousness picking this up? I am considering getting one, are there any other 'looks' available?
Message: Posted by: Paul Gross (Jul 30, 2007 09:43PM)

There are currently just the two sizes and styles available. When Tim brought the new Mini version into Hocus Pocus last week we all went crazy for it.

Believe me when I tell you that there is no way that this smacks of electronics. The block is solid in look and feel. The whole prop can be freely handled without detection.

We started taking orders for it almost as soon as Mike listed it on our website. I would say by the numbers of orders that came in over the weekend that this is going to be as popular if not more than the original. This is the perfect size for closeup and walk around. Please feel free to check it out on the Hocus Pocus website.

Best regards

The mini cube comes with a black box, by default. It makes it easier to do the effect using the classic color vision method. The inside of the black box is plain unpainted wood. It still looks simple. I will make them with wood stained boxes if asked to do so.

They are made on demand, so when you place your order with Hocus Pocus you can request a stained box or extra receivers and we will see that you get what you want.

I have the Mini-Die Box as well as the Regular Die box with the vibrator unit.
This is a GREAT effect .. well worth the money. I used to have the regular sized color box and sold it ... I like the mini Die Box much better -- just my preference. Tim makes a QUALITY product.

I have the original larger box and it is great. As with all of Tim's items they are all well made and he is a great person to deal with!

The matt black mini remote vision colour cube looks very cheap and poor quality.
I was so disapointed when I opened the pacaging, - however it works really great, and it does fry people.
bottom line, - looks cheap and cheerful but works sensationaly. buy it then re paint it better.

also forget the wrist receiver the hook up of receiver box and long wires is too bulky and fiddly. - choose the card case receiver, you cant go wrong, nice and neat, no wires, no hook up. either have it in your top shirt pocket or place it somewere in room to get your quick peek.

I am very pleased with this item apart from the poor finising of the wooden box and cube.

The "cheap" look is one of the things I like about Tim's color cube. It looks like a toy I might have had as a kid and this makes it that much more deceptive. Honestly, if it had a more fancy look too it, I don't think I would like it as much.

Message: Posted by: DR STEVE HOSKINS (Aug 27, 2007 03:35PM)
Apparently tim wiseman also offers a high gloss finish or a stained wood finish. - just my mistake ordering the matt black. - anyway tim has kindly offered to swap my matt black for the shiny high gloss finish.

I have been playing with this today with work friends, it floored everybody!
I am like the simon cowell of magic, I don't give compliments often - but this thing rocks ! people really beleive I have "special psychic powers".

pound for pound this is the best thing I bought in the last few years. - put it onto your most wanted list. its a must have.

To me, the more plain the appearance, the better. Anything polished and pretty just screams "magic prop". My opinion anyway!

Check this one out for those who have impecable taste for elegant quality... http://www.jammagic.com/insane_dievination.htm This one doesn't even need a box or lid (although you could still use one if you wanted to perform a color vision style effect) and can be held in the hands of a spectator behind their back! I own them all and this one is by far the finest and unrivaled in quality.

I've owned both the larger and smaller version, and ideed, it is the low-tech appearance that I believe really helps sell this effect. The matte black box that comes with the mini, looks like something your 5th grader brought home from woodshop. It's the icing on the cake, to put this box above suspicion. I would never "gloss" or "glam" it up.

I use the Jam Magic Die mentioned by rmendez and both versions of Tim Wisseman's miniature die mentioned by Paul Gross and the Labco's Mental Dice. All of them are EXCELLENT. How do they differ: Tim Wisseman's props are small and they look "home made", extremely DIY which makes them VERY innocent looking. Finland is a tiny country and people know I am a drone manufacturer so I am easily suspected of using this know how for magic. With a lot of high tech items I use like Labco's and Fabrice Delaure's (just put the name into Google to see what I mean) I have to be very careful. But when I hand out Wisseman's die and say, I made this one yesterday of some left over wood, NOBODY ever suspects it could be a hi-tech item as many have pointed out in this thread. So for close-up or table hopping it is IMHO the best. The Jam Magic Die I have is much bigger, (but I understand smaller versions and a choice of wood is now offered) about the size of Labco's Mental Dies which actually are two dies so you have the additional bonus of being able to say which one was put in the box that - by the way - is a beauty to behold. These two therefore lend themselves better to parlour performance. They have excellent finnish so they do NOT look inncoent. As to the performance of all these props I have rarely had any problems in literally hundreds of perfomances and the manufacturers have earned a 5 star rating for their service. There is one thing you have to renew in all of them, and in that department the Jam Magic Die is by an incredibly wide margin the best, as a fact so good it is hard to believe. Tim Wissemans cubes and Labco's cube have to be "hidden" in the box that comes with the die. The Jam Magic Die is self-contained. It can be put anywhere out of sight of the performer. About the only place to avoid is the lap of the participant as contrary to Labco's and Wisseman's dies in their boxes, it must be kept in a horizontal position and may not be moved during the detection process.
So you really have similar items "with a difference" to suit your particular needs. Whichever of these items you decide on, YOU WILL BE DELIGTED.

Thanks to rmendez and Kaarlo for the kind words about JAM MAGIC's die. In all of the threads I have read it seems that no matter who's die you have everyone is pleased with: looks, manufacturer, and service. I am therefor in no way critical of Tim's excellent effect, I only say I can't understand why just because something is finely crafted, or has a nice professional appearance why is that supposed to cause suspicion? I for years have used items from Milson Worth, Collector's Workshop, P&L, Owen Supreme and others and have taken pride in their appearance and quality. I can say that to my knowledge no one has ever questioned their innocence because of their fine appearance. Should a thin model sawing be made from cardboard boxes or orange crate materials to supposedly create innocence? I do understand where you are coming from when you say you like the "homemade" look but I am assuming that is because all of your props are themed similarly. Again I am not critical of Tim's effects but I am trying to understand why a different look would cause suspicion. Thanks again to all of you who have shared your opinions and honest and unbiased reviews.

You can't go wrong with any of the three versions of Tim's die box.

I own all three, and I have used the matte black mini box. Trust me, they all fry people, even the matte black mini box. Don't over analyse this, no one is going to think one is more convincing than another.

You can't go wrong with this effect. One of my favorites. If you don't own one of these, you should. Put it on your next to buy list.

Strange reply to my question
Message: Posted by: simcoscor (Feb 11, 2008 09:31PM)
Here is my answer, Magical Storyteller. I like to perform magic with high quality, finely craft, eye catchy, gleaming items, in part because they look like real "collectables". There beautiful apparence may even justify that I keep them on a shelve, and want to show them to my guests... I'm mostly looking for exotic hardwoods, brass, crystal, rare coins... I love Warner's, Delaure's, CW's items...
I don't perform my cups and balls with plastic beer cups; mine are silver, very shiny... But all that is a matter of individual taste, style and personnality.
If I perform magic for people who know me, and show them a "homemade" die or wooden block, I think I would look very suspicious... If the die is gorgeous, made of exotic cocobolo or koa wood, I can explain that I brought it back from the islands as a souvenir (a paperweight, or something...) "By the way, how would you like to try an extra-sensorial experiment...?"

There's no way lay people will think that such a nice wooden die, the Jam magic one, will hide a sophisticated telecommunication system invented just to fool them so devilishy...

Tim, sincere congratulations for your work, you will sell many hundreds of yours, and you deserve it.

Magical Storyteller, did you get my order? (and please, do not sell to many! :) )

Well Thanks simcoscor for another opinion again acknowledging "different strokes for different folks". Of course I agree with you (and why wouldn't I) but you did such an eloquent job of agreeing that fine craftsmanship does not draw suspicion I had to swell with pride concerning our product. I also agree that Tim should be congratulated on his excellent product and his many fans are doing a fine job of that. Botom line is there will always be those who prefer one style over the other and that makes Tim and I both winners. and yes I did receive your order and we will be caught up soon and it will be on its way. I will pm you when we ship it out. "Ain't Magic Grand!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

I like a lot of Jam Magic's products (such as kids' products and Miser's Delight), but I do think the "ordinary" nature of Wisseman's product does baffle people, and I don't know if "fine" wood block would have the same effect. The simplicity of it is disarming and the fact that it looks like a garage sale item gives it an innocence which high-end, trophy pieces do not automatically possess. Plus, there is the issue of cost, which hasn't been raised yet on this thread. Wisseman's die is, probably because it is plain-looking, much cheaper. That is not to discredit the quality or value of the Jam Magic version; it is only to say that cost should also be truly considered as a consideration . . .(just being honest).
Message: Posted by: Magical Storyteller (Feb 12, 2008 05:13PM)
Hi Mumblemore,
Nice to have your opinion as well and thanks for being a good Jam Magic Customer.
I still contend that whether it is a "garage sale item" (and I honestly don't know if I have ever seen even a homemade wooden dice in a box around a 2 inch size or any other size for that matter in a garage sale or the equivilant)or a "collectable" what not or paperweight why it would draw suspicion?!?! And when you say the issue of cost , yes it does take more time and labor to finish a finely crafted item (exotic wood, inlaid indices, stained and sealed, etc. than to have the home made look but the appearance is not all to consider. Remember our dice can be performed WITHOUT a box which calls for entirely different electronics and work on the inside of the die. So cost is really apples and oranges although the effect is similar. I am not really here to debate quality because I know for Tim's die to perform it has to have quality workmanship INSIDE the die so I am sure his is constucted of high quality as well. I just take issue that my die "draws suspicion" over a "home made " look. I have sold many of them and not once had a performer say the die was suspected by his (or her) volunteer.
I guess that is where the real answer lies, in the field of performances. Again thanks Mumblemore for your input as all is welcome on this forum even if we disagree we remain friends and co-conspiritors in legerdemain.

I live in the uk and managed to buy the mini colour cube second hand.

I am looking forward to the time when a casino regular sized black gloss die will be able to be produced. It is only a matter of time now with all the hard work people like Tim and others are puting in to gradually making the die look more and more natural. For me personally speaking a 'normal' sized die really would be the proverbial holy grail. 1.5 cube inches and counting! :)

Thanks Steve, Craig's die is indeed very good and to be recommended highly.We have spoken about it by PM. Craig's die is the smallest I am aware of at just one inch cube. Like many magicians I am still however naturally looking forward to a time (hopefully fairly soon) when the gadget is the same size and appearance as a regular casino playing die.By this I mean preferably 0.5 inch or failing that 0.75 inch cube at most. Then it could be used in a regular shaker in conjuction with other die and switched about etc.I guess that I am a bit of a perfectionist and wary when it comes to splashing out on electric gadgets.I sincerely wish Craig, Tim and others all the best of luck in their continuing venture but I am going to hold back for a bit until things move on.I also have spending commitments in other areas.However I would only encourage other magicians to buy these remote vision dice from Craig and Tim as there is clearly so much potential for powerful presentations.

Just a note to compliment Tim Wisseman on his fantastic customer service.

When I had a problem with my cube (an early model), I phoned Tim. He offered to replace the electronics with the latest version, without charging me. That's what I'd call standing behind your product.

Craig Filicetti's customer service is also on this same high level. He's wonderful to deal with and backs up what he makes absolutely.

It's a pleasure (and a rarity) to have guys like this making stuff for magicians.

I have a mini (just picked up a second) and LOVE it! I would also HIGHLY recommend getting a Pelican 1200 to carry and store your mini cube (Should also work with the MD). They are airtight, watertight, easily lockable and virtually indestructable! Attached is a pic of mine that I customized for the cube. It runs about $30 (retails around $70, but you can easily find it cheaper. PM me for more info as I have done a ton of research) and is a small price for such an investment!

Message: Posted by: sharonyyy (May 1, 2009 10:21AM)
I got mine yesterday (the remote cubed 3000) it works great!!!
the finish of the cube and the box look simple and that what make it not suspicious to people.
the little problem is the box,some of the people ask me why they have to put it inside and want I guess the color without the box.
today I do it for someone and in the 3 times he didn't put in the box and tell me what the color is...and it doesn't "work" so I told him to put it in the box,and he says that in the box and I say no...and that was suspicious to him and he start to check the cube. :(

I visit now at this web http://www.promystic.com/MultiDimensional.htm
and find a cube that works without the box and it seems more graet from mine...
but the price double.

Yup, the Multi Dimensional die/colour cube/any other cube is totally self contained and super reliable. I've been using it all day yesterday after I received it and I've just futzed around with it a bit more with people this morning around the office :D Multi Dimensional is also noticeably smaller, very light, feels and looks like a novelty die. You can easily pass it off as a knick knack that you've picked up at a trade show.

What really funny is in all my years of using my cube. . . many people assume that there is some sort of gravity switch inside cube so to trick me they hold the cube and box upside down or sideways behind their back or sometimes do not even place the cube in the box. . . it does not matter, I still know the selected color and when they do not place the cube in the box.

Tim that post of mine was a year ago, I apologise if it offended you.

But things move on, and improvements are made to an existing type of effect, and we buyers discuss those improvements, the purpose of all these Magic Café threads is not for you to promote your product exclusivly,but to discuss the very similar competitors products so that comparisons can be made.
Your cube had been the benchmark that others were judged by for a long time,
- until MD arrived, IMHO.

I own several Tim Wissemans products and they are all very very good, I have written and reviewed (positivly) about your products too, but when something else comes along that is so similar but better than your Mini Remote Vision Colour Cube it needs to be discussed.

I am sure nobody will mind if you discuss your cube on the MD/Promystic threads!

I have seen the Pro-Mystic Multi Dimensional Color Cube. It is very nice … the perfect trophy prop most magicians & mentalist would love to have in their collection of Cadillac props.
I’ve just purchased the Remote Cubed 3000 by Tim Wisseman. This prop is a Cadillac as well. Handling is different and has a very strong transmitter. I’ve walked 60 feet away from the transmitter and still got signal. Of course that was just a test on signal strength. In reality you can have an audience member come to the stage … put the cube and box in a bag to conceal it from the audience, return to their seat … select a color (concealed in the bag & box) and tell them what it is.
Having seen and handled both products I’d prefer the Tim Wisseman product over the other and here is why…
I had purchased Anverdi Spirit Bell from Howie Schwartz. This prop was a real Rolls Royce but I realized later it reeked of electronics and for the beauty of quality that it is … the effect of the bell was never as strong as I thought it should be. It just didn’t look ordinary. The Wisseman product looks and feels like something you might have put together in your garage using your table saw. It looks that down to earth and ordinary … earthy.
And as with any magic or mentalist affect … if you want to entertain yourself with the product stay at home. Don’t over use the product in front of your audience.
Once is Magic … Twice is Education. Don’t telegraph what your doing or what you have with over use.

I have a custom made Tim Wisseman Die cube, he made look real old for me, so I can say my paw-paw was a carpenter and made it 70 years ago just for fun, and I inherited it. It is a plus that you will know when it is not in the box, as people always try to trick you and not put it in the box. With the other one, you have to wing it, and I do have the other one and also use it. With Tim's that is a very good and important feature. When the box is empty, I tell the person they have a blank mind. Sometimes I say they must have blond roots, or they are a blond, and their head is empty, or an air head! I don't feel bad saying this, as they are trying to mess me up, so I hit them back. No one ever gets offended, they are just very amazed! And I have gotten burnt with the other one. Now I shake the other box to make sure it is in it. But I do not start off making it a challenge, but there are also smart-A people that try to mess you up, and when they do that, I say, anything goes. I do not do mental magic and do not present it as such, but say it is something my paw paw used to do to me and I would like to share it with them. Tim's is fool proof in this respect.
If you are new in magic and still working on audience control, or even a seasoned pro, Tim's is great.
Message: Posted by: Acecardician (Apr 13, 2012 12:02AM)
And to be fair, I love the other one by the other guy we will not mention in this thread, but go to his thread, and you will see my rave reviews. They are both GREAT! A working pro should have both in his arsenal, for whatever situation arises. I do. I am prepared. If you work, then you can easily afford both of them, so just get both, and use them as needed. I think I like Tim's for my kid shows, and the other one for adults, but you may use either as you please. At one show, I had them both out, and had the kid pick the one they wanted me to use. Or use both one after the other. One with color and one with the die. Do the die first( the other one), and the color second if they try to trick you and not put it in the box, so you will know it is not there. and you can tell them they cheated. And then the die and do not even use the box, have them put it under several napkins to make sure you cannot see it, and you can press down the napkins and make sure it is there.

Take care and peace,

I got one recently and can report that it is - still - excellent.
Hocus Pocus now offer it as an exclusive.

It is simple DIY to turn it into a smarter-looking prop if such things are important to you.
Personally I like the fact that it looks like a bit of a toy - which is just what Tim intended with his design. I introduce it as a colour picker from my young kid's board game.

There are several models available on the market, at hugely varying prices, but if you want something to "do what it says on the tin", at an affordable price, then this is the one to go for.
And Paul Goss tells me he has never had one returned faulty. I had an electronics friend check out the board (having been let down by a poorly made one from another manufacturer in the past) and he reported it as a nice piece of electronic work.

The main choice, I think, is whether you prefer a receiver that uses lights as its interface - which is great for stage use - or a vibrator (stop sniggering in the back of the class). There are advantages and drawbacks to both, so choose carefully. Personally I'd love a model that offers you the two, for different performing conditions.

Message: Posted by: bobgill (Feb 16, 2015 09:19AM)
Every prop has a downside or weak spot.
One of the joys of magic today (for me anyway) is that, whilst one is spoiled for choice on the market, you have to really research the item and its competing products, and think about how you motivate the circumstances that meet the weaknesses.
In this instance:
- The Promystic is a lovely prop, but hideously expensive.
- Remote 3000 has to be inside its box, which can seem a limiting factor.
- iCube or rvPhotocube transmit via an iPhone - which can drop out on occasion.
- using a vi****ing receiver requires you to count the transmissions, which can be disconcerting as it demands your attention.
- but using a receiver with l****s has to be in view, and this can be limiting.

I have Tim's Remote Vision Die, regular size and like it for several reasons. I have an antique Spirit Bell by Tim and need something that looks wooden and old, that matches my bell. Also, I have no problem using a box. It is completely examinable, and it hides the spots so I can reveal the number in whatever way I want. I use my Spirit Bell. It depends on what you want to do with it and how you want to present it. I love old wooden props that look homemade because the audience would never suspect anything funny. With polished large dice or small plastic looking PM dice, they look like they could have been purchased at a store. Mine does not! Cheers!
