We acquired this from an old magic estate buy-out. It is pre-owned (but works just fine) and comes with a copy of the original English instructions. No original packaging included.
Effect: The magician holds both ends of a string to which a colored plastic cube has been strung. The magician shows how the cube falls freely down the string by holding the string vertically. He then asks the spectator to call stop any time while the cube is falling. The cube magically stops at the spectator’s command. To go a step further, the magician shows that he can stop and start the cube anytime he wishes.
When the cube is handed to the spectator, the cube falls freely and the spectator cannot stop it as the magician did no matter how much they try!
No magic skills are required for this trick. Very easy to do. Everything you need for this trick is included with complete instructions.
Notes: A great little pocket trick that is always ready to go. Use it to reveal selected playing cards as it stops over the chosen card. Pass the power over to a spectator as they are able to command the cube to stop upon their signal. Cause the spots on the cube to change color! Lots of great ideas will come to you for using Cubio in novel and entertaining ways.
