In 2016 Joao Miranda invented Vision Box, his original take on the classic card to impossible location plot.

For the first time it was possible to perform an invisible switch not only to laymen but also to magicians.

The prediction is in full view from the first moment to the last, without any strange looking moves, the switch is accomplished.

Exactly four years later, Vision Box 2.0 is born and has several important technical details that have been improved regarding the first version:

Improvement 1: with vision box 2.0 the magician can really show a full card, fold it into quarters and place it inside the box. This by itself is a game changer since with other boxes of this type the piece is usually 2D and flat. Now it looks like a real prediction.

With Vision Box 2.0 the prediction inside has all the folds and looks like a real card, even from a very short distance.

Improvement 2: tiny built-in magnets in the base, making the prediction lock in place when placed inside the box. That way you don't need to be afraid of the piece moving from its position before the switch is made (by picking the box from the table for example)

Improvement 3: The lid is now 2x thicker, making it more resistant and much more secure in the top of the box, not falling out prematurely.

Improvement 4: New construction and building process, making a much more improved switch.

Improvement 5: Easier, faster and on the go reset with a new tool that makes you setup the box in less than 3 seconds (even in dark you can reset the gimmick).

"Vision Box 2.0 is unbelievable. I Highly recommend it."

A nice Addition to the Card to Clear Box Idea Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 12th, 2021
All In all, this was my first card to clear the box but I did notice issues.
1. The handling is a bit off.
2. Once the gimmick is made, you can't change it.
3. With the original handling the slight pop sound is very noticeable.

The good thing is that I have solved these issues and can be found on the Secret Facebook Group Page.

I'd say that I like this box over the Clarity box.
-It is smaller and looks just like a full card folded up instead of just aside.
-Better angles.

How is it compared to Paragon 3D?
-Well I like Paragon 3D for how clean it is. How you can see the card being tossed out onto the hand. You can see 360 degrees of the object inside the box.
-However, if you have Paragon 3D, you know the clean-up.

This is in my personal Opinion a mindless version.
Let me explain.
You take the box out and set it on the table. You can or do not have to call attention to it.
You have a card selected and signed. You do what you need to do. Call attention to the box. and then just activate the box to do the switch and hand the card to the participant.
You end clean, and everything can be examined. with Clarity Box and Paragon 3D, you either do not end clean or nothing can be examined.

The reset for the Vision Box 2.0 is a bit annoying and I haven't tested out a fix for it yet. But I have some ideas on that. I do however feel the gimmick was made to force buyers to have to buy more. Each Gimmick can be found on the Joao Miranda Website in the accessories tab. At $15/Gimmick. But With my Mod, you won't have to.

There is what I call a dead spot. Which is that the gimmick can not be shown 360degrees. Butttttt The issue largely goes unnoticed as there is no point to prove the validity of the card inside. When I use it. I pull the box out and just set it on the table. Or I have a person hold on it it. I instruct them to put their thumb on the lid so it doesn't fall off. I then continue the effect. The box will usually fall out of people's minds. If they are checking out the box and not what you are doing. You're magicing wrong lol.

All in all. For the Price. This is a great device. There is minimal construction. A bit more If you choose to mod it (Which I recommend) It has a fairly fast reset. That can be made faster if as you turn away, start the reset and then turn back around as you reset and it looks like you are just putting another card in the box.

Vision Box 2.0 Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 30th, 2020
I have never owned the first Vision Box, BUT this 2.0 OMG!!!! This is amazing I swear this should be priced waaaaay higher. I am so amazed at the workings. I can't stop doing it and just looking at how perfect the box looks up close ...like 1-2 inches away. This thing is a beauty. Flawless! It is very, VERY sturdy and the gimmick is very secure, you could probably juggle with the box in its loaded stage without activating the gimmick. The best way for me to describe this is, it feels like you are performing a stage illusion 1-2 inches away from the spectator WITHOUT exposing anything... everything is perfect, you will not regret this purchase.

Not that impressed :( Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 11th, 2021
Bought it directly from Joao but i am a frequent Penguin customer and would like to rate it.

The retention of vision is great, what you see in the trailer is possible.

But

1. You need to decide which card you would like to use.
For the price asked they should have included another gimmick so you can use a playing card and the blank card.

2. It makes a unnecessary clapping noise which could have been easily muted with some further thought and materials.

4. The Box looks a bit suspicious because it is not clear on all sides and that might give something away.

5. It feels like the V1 Boxes got “recycled“ with it.

Perfecting what was already perfect Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 1st, 2021
I think a review is due from someone who owned the original. I brought the original vision box as soon as it was released. I’ve tried every other card to clear box out there and this one blew the rest away. The working of it is near self working, the action of removing the card is natural. In other words, it’s perfect.

So why bring out vision box 2.0? Because Joao isn’t ever happy unless something is constantly evolving, which is the right frame of mind to have as a magic creator. This new version fixes issues that I didn’t know were issues from the first version. It’s easier to reset, it’s more sturdy, you can actually fold up a card or billet in front of the spectators before placing it inside, once it is inside its not coming out until you want it to. For me this is as good as the clear box principal could get. Well done Joao; another happy customer here

A Must Have Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 27th, 2020
I like many have sat on the fence during the release of the original version. It looked too good to be true to be honest.

There are obvious aspect to the effect that need to be mastered to make the best use of the device, but there is Joao provides a entry level method as well.

The illusion can be used for different types of predictions, but based on the methodology, it may require refills and/or a separate unit for each prediction type.

I don't believe this is something most magicians will use more than once in a performance, and so it pretty safe to say they will likely settle on one of the three gimmick types provided.

Maybe magicians more familiar with its use can comment on that aspect. Out the box it is designed for red and blue Bicycle Rider Back cards and billets. Other deck types will require arts and crafts.

Am I glad I got this at last. You betcha! This tiny illusion plays big, and what you see if what you get.

Prior to my purchase I had seen other magicians perform the original version live and it was mind blowing. According to the ad copy this version is even better. As far as I can tell angle concerns are minimal to none depending on the handling. It can be performed under very close scrutiny.

5 out of 5 stars. This hits all the benchmarks as far as I am concerned.
