First of all, there is a compatibility issue with iPhone 12 Pro Max so I had to use my old Android to get it to work. Mind you, it’s the third party developer’s fault but since it was the choice of the gimmick creator to go with this developer it is also their responsibility for this issue. Secondly, it is loud. Using this in a quiet room for a few people, it’s very clear that something is going on. It’s very blatant. I think even in a parlor setting it would be a giveaway unless there’s loud enough music being played. Thirdly the larger base which doubles as a lid was falling apart out of the box. One of the short sides was barely hanging on. For the cost of this gimmick, that shouldn’t be an issue. I should not be getting out super glue for something of this cost. Lastly, refills for this are very specific and I’m sure will not always be available. The device comes with a template so you can make your own things but they won’t look professional if homemade so buy up all the refills you can while they’re still around. This gets a low score because it’s not worth the price and is misleading. If it was retailed for a few hundred less, it would be more excusable. In fact, I can in no way find justification at this price. Very disappointed.

The rating of this trick can be nothing but 10 stars. It takes the master prediction plot to the next level. No assistants needed, no stooges, no pre work, no funny moves, no big furniture/weird tables or sliding things. Just you, the spectator and the acrylic box with the accurate information inside. Everything perfectly thought out. I've reached Mr. Agus and he's been extremely kind to me, even before I purchase the trick. Not ever creator does it. I strongly recommend all his products out there. Inscribed is not a cheap one, but I can state it is positively under priced for what you get. Probably the best thing that happened in 2020 so far...thank you Mr. Agus!

I thought a lot about the routining and presentation I wanted to use this for, so, to my wallet's chagrin, I took the plunge and bought this system. Unfortunately, it fell short of my expectations in many ways, and I eventually sold mine. Some of the issues I saw:

-Limited options, cannot rotate text or photos
-Drawings or scribbled writing ALWAYS looks digital/pixelated. If it's a drawing, it looks almost exactly like a Microsoft Paint drawing. Your spectators will not think the drawing was done by hand
- Limited options for templates. They should’ve included a lottery ticket template or something like that. In order to do that, so much maneuvering must be done IN-PERFORMANCE on the app. This is less of a problem if you have an assistant off stage but still.
- I even considered doing a receipt confabulation where I have people name a restaurant, a food, and a total item. However, this is far too impractical with this app. You would have to quite literally type and format the entire receipt from scratch on the app in real-time.
- Lacking streamlining
- Clearly, not made by/for English speakers
- Unpredictable/fluctuating print quality. Sometimes, the darkness of the print is good, other times it is sufficient. But again, this is unpredictable even when toggling with contrast settings in the app.

Now, issues with the prop itself.
- You will have to accept that your closer looks like a receipt and like it has been printed. Which— if you were a real mind-reader and you’re revealing a drawing, why would it be a digital drawing on receipt paper? This will allude the method to spectators.
- Can only produce ONE slip of paper, not several
- It will be the exact dimensions of a receipt, so a parlor audience will not be able to see it or read it unless its a large drawing.
- The audience will recognize the texture and dimensions of the paper… they deal with receipts all day long.
- The cleanup occurs at the exact time there should be no tampering.
- Routining wise, there are bigger prediction/closer effects that don’t require such a dramatic setup for a single small slip of paper. Look into other confabulations.
- The unit makes sound. Not as loud as a receipt printer at the market, but you will need some white noise or music for about 15-30 seconds during the key moment.

Overall, this had SO much potential. If the app included templates (such as a lotto ticket, playing card, restaurant receipt etc…) with easy input at the touch of a button, that would be a huge plus. If the app allowed intuitive re-sizing, rotation, and manipulation of drawings and text, that would be a huge plus. But you are restricted quite heavily.

If the printer was a bit wider and resembled less the size of a standard store receipt, that would be awesome. If it could print multiple slips into the same envelope, that would be awesome. But no. You get a small slip of paper that one person will have to hold in their hands (practically) to be able to do. It wont play for a big stage. I suggest other confabulation type routines, such as Bill Abbot's No-Brainer, or Message in a Bottle by Scott Alexander.

Great concept, but needs streamlining to be a fantastic product. Report this review

This is a great concept. The physical design is very attractive and well thought out. The instructions are clear and concise.

That said, this product doesn't receive 5 stars because the creators are using a third party app that requires the user to do steps that really should be automated. Without giving away the secret, the problem with the additional steps is that you have be looking at it while doing it and, at the time, be distracting the audience with patter or something else. If the author created their own app for this routine, they could automate this portion of the process, making the product *significantly* better. They could also simplify the user interface, making it fewer steps during the performance overall. As-is, I would prefer the use of an assistant because the steps in the app are kludge. Yes, I get that practice will make it look less kludge; my point is that I would pay for an app that did the work for me because me going through those steps in the app detract from the performance and those steps could be eliminated with a better app.

One physical aspect of the design (again, without giving away the secret) could be made much more user-friendly. Instead, it requires the user to unscrew and screw things during preparation, and you'll probably want to do that before every show.

Also, the product will make sounds at a particular point in the performance. On a stage with music, this won't be a problem, but this certainly wouldn't work in a quiet room for parlor magic. Most people will be able to guess the secret based purely on the sound it makes.

Contact the maker of this illusion and I promise you that Agus Tjiu with all of his kindness and wisdom will personally help walk you through all of the issues that these people who don’t have the power and boldness to do their own personal research to reach out to speak with him. I promise you that you won’t regret buying this product or anything else from him. The only two things that you will regret is listening to the people who don’t know how to reach out to the extremely kind and extremely wise Agus Tjiu and you will regret not getting this absolutely stunning effect or anything else by the creator.
