Marc Antoine is now proposing a SDK to developers for free for his MD. Meaning that developers can now support dice compatibility with almost any magic app out there.

Just imagine using your favorite magic app just by asking your spectator to roll the dice

Interesting that Marc Antoine is just now proposing this when another developer (unknown to most of you as far as magic dice are concerned) announced a similar plan just a couple of weeks ago. I'm pretty certain the other developer reached out to Marc Antoine to allow his dice to work with the new developer's app.

No this has been planned for a while since the voila integration and it came out before the features of the dice were announced (I know both of the developers). Marc Antoine will probably integrate with the new app because it wouldn't be any more work for him and it would far surpass his.

Any insights into what this new mental dice app integration means? The update has gone out and it says “Integration with T watch”. But I can’t find any specific details on how this works or what it does

I was getting ready to pull the trigger on this set of die. Does the community here feel this is a better buy than the Anverdi Die for £100 less? I think it may be but would like some buy in before taking the plunge.

This is much better. It has a full featured app and many more integrations than other dice sets.

The Kinetic Dice are the next generation and the extra money compared to the cheaper Anverdi version is well worth it for just the Kinetic feature, let alone all the other features in the App, compatibility with the Turner and TimeSmith Watch and more...

We have it in stock in the 3 dice set or single die set.

The single die will not do everything the 3 set can but you can upgrade to 3 dice if you wish at later date for the price difference.

The single die basically gives you the number, which hand functions and limited basic control due to only having one die of the TimeSmith Watch if you have it.

The three set can be found here www.saturnmagic.co.uk/saturn-magic-shop/......-antoine

The Single here www.saturnmagic.co.uk/saturn-magic-shop/......-antoine

What would the difference be between having the single die to having all three?

Plus if I purchase this single die from you as long as it shows I bought it you will organise I just pay the difference for the other two?

Yes, that's what I did. It's better to have the three dice because you can predict the color AND number, which hand effects too, mobile predictions too, it's really a great product worth the price !

I suggest familiarizing yourself with these too:

Apologies if I'm being a bit thick but I don't understand why the comparative table between this version and the Anverdi dice says that you can't do a "which hand" effect nor do you have a colour sensor... I have the Anverdi dice set (the set of 3 as well as the single one released after) and you can do both...

What is being referred to is that the Anverdi dice do not have a movement sensor, whereas these and Spotted Dice do.

Hmm ok I think I understand thanks for clarifying Smile my point still stands though, you can still do the "which hand" effect with the Anverdi dice (and you can still tell what colour is being used) Smile

Ben,

If the number on top of the Anverdi die does not change, then it is difficult to know which hand contains the die. For example, the spectator puts his hands behind his back, puts a die in one of them, and then brings both hands forward at the exact same time. All the Anverdi receiver will tell you is that the topmost side of the die is changing, NOT which hand it is in. If both hands are moving at the same time, it's difficult to know. And after the spectator's fists are held out in front of him, even if he moves one of his hands up and down or side to side a little, if the top number doesn't change the receiver won't tell you anything.

Yes, you can structure the instructions in your routine so you know which die went where ("while my back is turned, grab any color die in your left hand, now grab one of the other colors in the right hand", etc.). But the new Antoine Kenitic dice and the Spotted Dice have motion sensors that detect physical movement even if the topmost side doesn't change.

Right ok I see thank you Mark - so it's basically easier to perform with the Marc Antoine dice got it, thanks! (for the "which hand" effect, you indeed need to make the spectator's hand move when using the Anverdi dice, which is how I use it)

I've added support for Kinetic Mental Dice in three effects within my Amalgam app.

Here are a few examples of just some of the things which are now possible when Amalgam is paired with Kinetic Mental Dice:

Watch - A random dice roll predicts the exact time displayed on your watch in a photo.
- Show your spectator a photo of yourself. Have the spectator roll three dice and create a time out of them (For - example, rolling a 5, 1, 3 would be 5:13).
- They zoom in on the photo to see that the watch you're wearing shows 5:13.

OneStopShop - Force an item from an online store. For example:
- Hand your spectator a face up deck of cards.
- Let your spectator scroll through an online playing card store and see multiple different playing card designs.
- They roll a die, and scroll through once more, remembering whichever item comes up at their selected number.
- Your spectator turns over the deck of cards to reveal it's the same as the chosen deck.

TimedOut - Predict a dice roll days in advance.
- Show your iPhone on the home screen, and place it face down.
- Have the spectator decide on a number of a die.
- They turn over the phone and open your photos to find a photo that you took yesterday of a die on the same number.

Amalgam is available via the App Store here.

These are great. Marc showed me them and I think it makes them a lot better. IMO this is why it’s the best dice set. It has more integrations than any others and more coming soon.

I”m thinking about buying one to evaluate. Can anyone recommend a retailer in the states that carries them? Thank you.
