Trick Review: Enchanted Cube
An intriguing and visual effect, you instantaneously solve a Rubik's Cube right in front of spectators. The cube is clearly mixed at one moment, and, after tossing it up in the air, it's solved with all of the colors matching on each side. You can watch my performance of the effect in a video that you can watch here (at 0:43 in the video).

This one was once performed on national television by Doug Henning so it's been around for awhile. You can't allow spectators to hold the cube in their hands or mix it up, but it's a great effect. By the way, this is not the "Rubics Cube" routine that Garrett Thomas performs on the Live at the "Jailhouse: a Guide to Restaurant Magic" DVD (you can read my review here).

Quick Cube

The trick is fairly angle proof and you can reset it in front of spectators by mixing the cube up again. I tried this out for awhile in my restaurants and found it to be a flashy and fast effect. It was something that I would quickly perform between my standard strolling routines as a throwaway.

The trick is not difficult to learn and perform, which makes it great for beginners. The kit comes with the gimmicked Rubik's Cube, which is a real one that has been doctored for the trick, and good written instructions.

If you like the sound of this trick, I can recommend that you check it out.
