Bermuda Cube by Willi Wessel(c. 1989) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
This effect is a version of Hot Spot invented by Vernon Cook c. 1950 and manufactured and released by Stan Payne of Star Magic, Portland, Oregon. Willi added the color change idea, but the rest is the same as the original Hot Spot. This is probably Willi’s biggest seller, brought to the USA by Howard Schwarzman and his Limited Editions line of magic.
Effect: It is a multi-phase routine that uses props that can be examined before and after the routine. A small die, or cube, is tossed on the table. It is roughly a one-inch cube, two opposite sides of which are red, two are yellow and two are green. Each side has a small hole in it running through the die. The magician also removes a small, black wand.
He pokes the wand through the green side of the cube; it emerges from the other green side of the cube and passes back and forth normally. He then removes the wand and pushes it into one of the yellow sides; but, it won’t pass through. Instead it appears to go into the cube and is then pulled back out of that same side. Finally the wand is pushed into a red side. It appears to go completely into the small cube and when pulled out of the other red side has changed into a red wand. The wand and cube can now be freely examined.
Excellent craftsmanship, and entertaining patter about the wands disappearing into the Bermuda Cube .
