Color c*be, motion sensor and proximity sensor … all rolled into one.
iCube is a miniature color c*be for the iPhone - turn it and your phone will vibrate to tell you which color has been selected! No need to carry around a thumper - the free app will transform your iPhone into the ultimate cueing device!
A classic effect with a revolutionary twist, the iCube (and companion mobile app) opens up a world of new possibilities for stage, close-up and street mentalism.
Please note, this trick requires an iPhone 4S or 5.
Choose from three different ways to secretly discover your volunteer's chosen colour or face:
Vibration: When the iCube is turned your phone silently vibrates in your pocket. The settings menu allows you to assign a different coded vibration to each face!
Visual peek: No need to count the vibrations - a quick peek at the screen will reveal not only the current selection, but also the last four faces that were chosen.
Home screen peek: Leave your phone in full view - the chosen face is secretly revealed on your home screen. Perfect for impromptu or casual performances.
And three different modes of use:
Orientation: Receive an alert whenever a rotation takes place.
Orientation and Motion: A unique new feature combines motion and orientation detection to alert you not only when the iCube is rotated, but also when it is moved!
Orientation and Proximity: The first magical prop ever to introduce proximity detection, your phone silently alerts you whenever the iCube is nearby.
Complete confidence for stage:
- Up to 50m range
- Unique pairing prevents interference from other devices
- Battery level and signal strength indicator
Perfect for impromptu and close-up:
- Zero setup. Just flip it upside down to turn it on!
- No need to worry about a separate receiver
- Sealed construction
More than just colours:
iCube's unique injection-moulded shell allows you to design, print and adhere your own faces. Customise it for corporate shows with logos or keywords - or add a personal touch by printing the names of people in your audience. From QR codes, to photographs, to occult symbols - the possibilities are limitless.
Inkjet-printable sticker sets available from July 2013.
More than just a c*be:
The electronics hidden inside the iCube are flat, entirely self contained - and absolutely tiny. They're also fairly robust and can be removed and placed in other objects! Want to tag your wallet with an iCube sensor? No problem.
More than we can imagine (so far!)
Once you buy an iCube, you can look forward to regular (and free) software upgrades that add to and improve existing functionality. Unlike a fixed receiver, you don't have to send it back to be upgraded, or wait for it to become obsolete! And if you have something specific in mind that you'd like, just forward us your suggestion and we'll add it to the next software release!

Help us keep iCube a secret!
To avoid exposure of the effect you'll notice that the word 'c*be' doesn't appear above. By referring to it as 'iCube', 'the device', or by starring out letters, we ensure that anyone searching for the method in Google won't come across it!
NOTE: This device is compatible with iPhone 4S, 5, or later versions only. Will also work with iPod touch 5G (or later) and iPad 3 (or later) but please note that vibration is not possible with these devices.
