The Magic Cube:

As by force, people are drawn to the Magic Cube. They want to unravel the secrets behind the levitation and rotational forces that make the Magic Cube so special. The Magic Cube’s mystery commands attention!

This makes the Magic Cube the perfect conversation piece. It’s impossible not to play with it, or to ask questions about it.

MAGIC CUBE (Patent Pending) levitates and rotates prism cubes or other objects in mid-air, like magic. Through the power of magnetism, the Magic Cube creates a stunning visual presentation!

As the prism cube rotates, the solid-state embedded green laser with sophisticated optics illuminates the surfaces of the cube, creating a mesmerizing light show - on the cube,  on the walls and ceilings around.

The Magic Cube’s exterior is made of machine age brushed, aircraft grade aluminium, with a mirrored acrylic top. Within the cube there’s a specialized solid-state embedded green laser, responsible for the stunning light show.

The Magic Cube is capable of levitating any object weighing up to 268 grams / 13 ounces. Perfect to showcase your favorite memorabilia and collectibles, or to display jewelry in a shop or at a trade show.

Whether it’s in your home, office, or in a shop, the Magic Cube is bound to command the attention and stun who sees it.

Features

  • Levitational force capable of lifting 268 grams / 13 ounces
  • Embedded green laser illuminates surfaces of prisms and objects

Risks and challenges

As an optometrist and industrial designer, primarily ophthalmic diagnostic instrumentation, I have over 30 years experience in working and prescribing prisms for strabismus, fixation disparity, phorias, etc. As an industrial designer, I have designed, patented and built several diverse ophthalmic instruments utilizing lasers, LEDs and optics.

Moving from prototype to production is rarely easy but having the experience of bringing projects to production is not new to me. Doing this for the first time is always filled with unknowns, fortunately this is not my first Kickstarter project. I have built trust over the last 30 years working with reliable partners that deliver. We would rather have the chance to deliver the Magic Cube earlier rather than later - just as we did with our 3 in 1 Stand Up Stand in a Tube, Lumia Lamp, Versi Stand and Franken Edison Light.

I am targeting delivery for October 2015 which allows us lead time from when the project ends, funds are delivered and components ordered. I'd rather be honest from the start rather than annoying everyone with delays.
