Don't take it apart to put it back together if all you need to do is solve it. While I HIGHLY recommend anyone considering Rubik's cube magic to master a beginner solve (ideally, I'd say solving at 30s average is a goal to aim for, but under a minute is fine) - just the same way I'd suggest everyone learning card magic to learn how to shuffle and cut properly. But, if you just need to solve a mixed cube and don't yet know how, you can download free cube solvers on your phone (or use them online even if lacking a smartphone). There shouldn't ever really be a need to break one apart to solve it. ;-)



Forget my previous post, I was asleep. Mess up a cube, solve it. Everyone messes up a cube. On Rubicon, Greg merely shows how to solve by putting the pieces back together. There will be plenty of mix ups to solve either the easy way or the hard way lol.
I recommend everyone learn to solve but unfortunately it is not probable. Dan Brown You Tube is fantastic. About the only tutorial that helped me. Monetized and viral now.

20 Seconds should be about right for a solve. May take a week or two to master that though.

RD 360 and others that use same principle can be done without solve knowledge. Akira though I would suggest a solve first. It is one great visual.

Awesome review. So is there a need for Rubiks Dream if you have Rubiks 360?

*****HANDS ON REVIEW********

So Henry sent me an advanced copy of Rubik's 360 a while ago and I have loved playing with it! It has so many possibilities!

To be fair you will see my name listed in the bonus routines...but I did not receive any compensation from Henry for this project. After seeing what I came up with he asked me if I would be willing to add it into the bonus material. Also, I am a full time professional magician. Tricks for video only are super fun, but I work in front of real people every week. I need something that can be used show after show that looks as good as the "For Video Only" tricks, and will base my review on real world performances.

I think Rubiks 360 is so powerful and make rubiks cube magic available to all magicians !!

First thing I noticed when playing with Rubiks 360 is the same quality that came with the original Rubik's Dream! (and works with the same standard RD regular cube that Rubik’s Dream does) It look so insanely real that I now have no problems pouring out the S***L into a spectator's hand or even letting the spectator pull it out of the bag themselves (as seen on the trailer). Honestly, the gimmick looks so real that when I see it next to normal cubes on my desk I don't know which is which until I pick them up!

My favorite thing about Rubiks 360 though is the locking system. It is such an ingenious idea that I don't know why it hasn't come out before!! When engaged you can throw everything in the air without any worries.

The 8 featured routines by Henry on the tutorial are a combination of classic rubiks cube ideas (that are now finally available to everyone...whether you are a finger-flicker-one-hand-solver or have no concept of how to solve a cube) and some new incredible new cube ideas (also available to both sets of people!) This new incredible system in my opinion has opened rubik's cube magic to the general hobby-ist as much as the "enchanted cube" did back in the 70s. I plan to teach and let my 7 year old perform with it very soon!

Like I said this new gimmick means that you DO NOT have to know how to solve a cube at all to perform it!! However, if you want to learn Henry suggests a great how that will teach you how to solve a cube.

The 3 bonus routines are amazing...BUT the best is the AKIRA SOLVE!!! It looks like how a super genius superhero on a movie would solve a rubik's cube...where everyone would claim they used CGI or something! Just as amazing as the Block Solve (that was featured on Rubik's Dream)...This is an incredible instant solve...if you are willing to put in the work! I have performed it now in over 20 shows and the only draw back I can see is that everyone believes that you are using a gimmicked cube. Easiest way to solve that is to simply hand them the cube. Granted when I performed this in my local magic club I had one member convinced for 20 mins that I had switched the cube or something. It is knuckle busting sleight of hand that is worth the hours of practice put in!

So whether you are a full time professional like myself who is willing to put in the hard core practice for the crazy finger flicking stuff....or if you are simply a hobby-ist who wants to mess with a couple friends' minds at your house...I can fully recommend Rubiks 360! [/quote]

It depends on your needs.
360 fills a need and can certainly add something when its particular properties suit the routine.
But RD is nice too and can be better for many things. IMO, the idea of showing all 6 sides is overblown a bit.
In some routines you may want to quickly place a cube into a bag or receptacle and pull it out very quickly with virtually no fidgeting or stalling. RD is great for this.

As part of my cube routine I switch a genuinely mixed cube for a shelled cube and then while placing the shelled cube behind a mirror, I dump just the shell into a servante and quickly bring out the inner solved cube to match the one I am holding in front of the mirror with my other hand. Obviously I could not use a 360 to accomplish this same thing and that is but one of a thousand examples.

So yes, there are still many uses for both an RD and a 360.

This is the BEST SET available, but I would buy "Dream" first - learn those effects and THEN also buy 360

Is this good for close up or are there issues with the shell being noticeably larger than the regular cube?

Thank you, I went ahead and ordered (along with the original RD). My only concern now is being able to get the stickers on properly.

It’s not that hard to put the stickers on, I find tweezers help

Tweezers help but the easiest way is to take the sticker off the sheet but move it to the corner of the sheet so 95% is off the sheet and the remainder the bottom right or left corner is still attached.
It’s very easy to now offer the sticker up to the cube and press out the 95% perfectly square and pull the sheet away and press down the tiny remainder.
I hope that makes sense, and now I also see this idea is described by Henry in the new Venom tutorial. Olly

Try again, it should be fixed by now.

I contacted vanishing inc and re logged into them and they placed it in my downloads after resetting my password and now all good again. Vimeo doesn’t seem to work with it anymore though but Vanishing inc resolved my issue promptly. Olly

I got mine through hocus-pocus, but there is no download for RD360 in my download section. Not sure what I should do. I just got this product and was trying to access it for the first time.
