    This guy is a great magician no doubt about that , i wasnt able to figure out majority of his tricks, but i think was able to decode some of his tricks:-
    1) 1:14 - 2:31= the trick was that there were NOT 2 cubes in the bag, but 3 cubes. One was the solved one, second was the one simon jumbled up and the THIRD was a cube that was jumbled up by the magician before the trick. Now he put in the cube simon had and while doing his trick switched out the cube simon jumbled with the cube he had jumbled before the trick. The rest was him just jumbling up the cube to achieve the result as he already knows what combination are needed in order to match it with the switched out cube
    2) 3:36 - 5:17= Now this one was a fabulous trick, but if you see him spreading out the cards for heidi to choose, he intentionally spread them out in a way that only 9-10 cards were visible for heidi to choose from. Now here is where the answer to the trick is , EVERY SQUARE ON THE BOTTOM OF THE CUBE HAD A PIECE OF CARD IN IT, EACH PIECE BELONGING TO ONE OF THE CARDS THAT HE SHOWED TO HEIDI TO CHOOSE FROM. Now he tore the card heidi chose in a practiced way so that the piece already inside the cube would fit in , magnifying the awe of the trick. And he then proceeded to break off the square of the cube that he knew had the piece of 6 of diamond in it.
    3) 12:06 -13:12 = In this one, the magician had a pre jumbled cube in his right pocket of jacket, now when howie mixes up his cube and the magician mixes up his cube to match the pre jumbled cube, you can see that the cube howie jumbled is clearly different if you pause at 12:27. Now he takes howie's cube , puts it under his cube and rotates his arm to put both the cubes behind his back distracting the crowd by talking about what was happening, but during that rotation when he rotated to his back and then to the front again, if you look very carefully, he switched howie's cube with the pre jumbled cube in his right pocket. Now the cube he solved would obviously match the cube that was pre jumbled and to add more depth to the trick, the big cube that simon had was pre jumbled to match the cubes from the very start as no one jumbled the big cube.

      For the last trick he definitely switched howies cube with another to make all three match but I slowed it down and you cannot see the switch at all. Extremely well done sleight of hand
      You definitely can’t “see” the switch as you described in the comment

    • Bernardo DC
      Bernardo DC Před 20 dny

      @Shawn NHL you're right, although there's one time where all six are solved as well. In that upclose he did the trick you mentioned

    • Bernardo DC
      Bernardo DC Před 20 dny

      The blasting solving has to be a tainted cube. Something with springs? that reshuffles on air (on #1 he has to throw it every time), or another trigger. On #3 the "solved" cubes positions are a "mixed" version, that matches the big one with simon. When he gets from howie he squeeze them, goes to back, etc, thats when he triggers and they realign to the pre-recorded mixed state. No one knows how it was in howies hands exactly

    • Bernardo DC
      Bernardo DC Před 20 dny

      I think is way simpler than that. For #2 he made the card piece disappear. Magicians do that well and hide somewhere in their hands. When he gets the rubiks to break it, at that moment he puts the piece there. It has to be the same to fit right.

    • Eric J
      Eric J Před 23 dny +1

      For 2) I noticed him carefully control the shuffle and distribution, and when you pointed out the missing corners I slowed the playback down and you're absolutely right - what's funny is when watching it the first time my mind just barely noticed the improper card outlines where the torn corners are, but it happened so fast it didn't sink in enough for an ah-ha moment. Great catches!

    Take a closer look at the last act. Steven strategically scrambles his cube behind his back to obviously match Simon's cube which was set up before the show. Now Steven's cube is the same as Simon's. Howie scrambles his cube and hands it to Steven. If you stop the video at the exact moment of the handoff you'll see one entire side of Howie's cube with a distinct pattern. Steven then puts both cubes behind his back. THE MAGIC HAPPENS BEHIND HIS BACK !!! When Steven brings the cubes back into view and compares them to Simon's cube, you'll notice that Howie's cube no longer has his original distinct pattern on any of its sides. So yeah, Steven switched Howie's cube with one that matched his own cube and Simon's cube when he put both cubes behind his back. Oldest trick in the book! It's called 'the old switch-a-roo' !!

    • Doc Nutnut
      Doc Nutnut Před 13 dny +1

      Exactly.
      Remembering how to mix up the cube in a specific 'mixed up' way is simple.
      The cube Howie hands back has
      yellow, yellow, orange as the top row
      red, green, yellow as the middle row
      blue, red, orange as the bottom row
      The performance was sleight of hand and showmanship. Still great to watch, but the ability to pause and rewatch kills the 'magic' element.

    The card trick with rubicks cube is pretty simple
    if you look closely in 4:10 you can see that part of the cards was already torn apart. The card was already torn apart that is why he was hiding the top left part with his hand ..so thats why he made it look like he tear it up it made it look like the torn part dissapeard from his hand because there was not a torn piece in his hand it was already inside the cube and also he manipulated the judge to pick a card in the middle part that he didnt shuffle so that he can only have fewer cards to remember to where he placed the torn piece of card on the rubicks cube 😊
    The first trick he did on simon the one that he copies the rubicks cube that simon mixed up was pretty easy.. The trick to that is that he has 3 rubicks cube already prepared.. The cube no 1 was the one simon mixed up the cube no 2 was a cube already solve the cube no 3 was a cube that he already mixed up that he remembered the pattern.. So what he did was to manipulate all to think that he only has 2 cubes the cube that simon mixed is already hidden on the paper bag that he pretend to smash the paper bag but it was only a diversion because the cube that simon mixed is still inside that paper bag.. I put the video on slowmotion when simon mixed the rubicks cube there was a side that 4yellow color is compressed but when the final act that he showed the copied pattern there was no 4 yellow color part thats because it is not the one that simon mixed up.. 😊

    I watched it again, i absolutely loved this guy. not just for his talent but also to see the dumbness of judges as well. He is an absolute expert with Rubik's cube. I know he mixes them to the point where one move will solve the Rubik's cube. That's how he does the trick of solving inside the paper bag as well as throwing the cube in air. But he is an expert in this area though and it's a talent. Always love talent related to intelligence.

    He is a genius observer he watched Simon do the turns and remembered them for that trick. When he picked up each of the 4 cubes and put them in the holes he twisted them in his hand. He must be able to figure out instantly how to twist each one to get all red and white on one side with one or 2 twists The big picture was all in red and white. When Howie turned his cube the guy was matching those turns on his cube behind his back . Then he took one of the cubes and twisted it in his hand to match the big cube .So he has genius Rubik cube ability and genius visual and spatial memory.
    As for the card and the color trick, Darren Brown gets people to pick the card he wants with the power of suggestion. His you tube posts are fascinating to see how that part of the truck is done. ( the test would be for Howie to have twisted his cube under the table. And to compare the Howie cube after the big cube comparison)
    So I think I know the trick mechanism, but even so the guy is brilliant to be able to do all of this because it takes several different expertly honed skills.

    3:23 i know that trick. He shows only 2 sides while shuffling and he memorizes a certain pattern that makes the 3 other sides done but the 2 sides he showed not done, all he has to do now is hide the 2 sides undone
    5:50 how he does this is that every card is repeated twice. And in every cube there is a different card. When she tells him the card he looks for the cube that has that card

    Ok first of all, when he flips the cube and magically solved it, he actually only solved three sides, but they were hidden from view on the other side where you can’t see. In the last few finishing turns of the scramble, you can see he completed a pair of green and slid it back. Meaning that he solved three sides only and not the whole thing. When he flips it, it looks like the cube is solved, but in reality, only three sides are. The other side which is unsolved is concealed from view.

  • Lorenzo Peccini
    Lorenzo Peccini Před 2 lety +3875

    This is exactly how he did a lot of his tricks:
    All real cubers will understand
    Please note I'm not hating on Steven, he is an amazing performer and he did an impressive job. All I'm doing is explaining how he did them
    *Act 1:*
    First trick:
    He memorized a short algorithm to scramble the cube and which he could easily reverse with one hand. And yes one-handed cubing isn't as difficult as most people imagine it to be, he had enough time to reverse it as he was placing it in the bag.
    Second trick:
    The second trick is very easy actually. He uses the first trick to "convince" the judges there are no other cubes. But then reveals a second one surprising everyone, nobody thought about there being a third cube did they? If you look at the colour patterns on Simon's cube (before it was put in the bag), you'll notice that they're different to the cubes after. Steven had three cubes. The first one was Simon's actual cube, the second one was Simon's fake cube and the third one was the solved one. He obviously memorised the algorithm used to scramble Simon's fake cube and when he put Simon's actual cube in the bag, he swapped it with the fake one. The third cube was obviously the one Steven used and he applied the scramble to it so it was the same as Simon's fake cube. You'll even notice that he is firmly holding the bag when it's upside down. We can check this by comparing the yellow face at 1:19 with the yellow face at 2:27
    *Act 2:*
    First trick:
    For the first trick was really impressive but if you pause the video at 3:01 you can see that he already had the yellow middle row solved in the front face, with the yellow top row on the right, the bottom white row (which is opposite to yellow on a solved cube) on the left face and matching opposite corners and edges as well. This can be easily solved in three moves. Take a solved Rubik's Cube and hold it with yellow in front and green on top, if you then perform a S U' D' (or z F' B U' D'), you'll get the cube in the same state he has it at 3:01
    Second trick:
    He uses a special algorithm to solve the cube on one side while leaving the other side scrambled. This will allow you to flip the cube and make it seem like you solved it.
    3:21 you'll notice that the only colours mixed are yellow, orange and blue.
    3:22 the only solved colours he shows are white, red and green
    Coincidence? I think not. Right after he finishes the trick and scrambles the cube, you'll notice that in the first move, the cube is already scrambled on one layer.
    The algorithm for this set up is:
    U' D L2 U B2 D2 B2 D2 L F' U D' R U' F2 L F' B'
    Third Trick:
    The last trick is actually very smart. The first part of the trick where he makes Heidi choose a card you'll notice that he only gives her the option of about 15 cards since he squeezes the front and backside of the deck. At 4:11 if you look at the back of the deck you'll notice that all the cards in the centre (which are the ones Heidi was forced to choose) all have a ripped angle. Basically, Steven prepared 15 cards that he placed strategically and ripped all of them in the corner. He then places half the card in the deck to cover the ripped corner and using slight of hands he makes you think he ripped the card and made it disappear. Now for the last part, a Rubik's Cube has 12 edge pieces and 8 corner pieces, making a total of 20 pieces. This means that all Steven had to do was place a ripped corner piece in every piece of the cube and memorize where each of them was. The card that was chosen would then determine the cube piece he would open.
    *Act 3*
    The Brad Pitt trick I was really confused. I had several things I noticed and looked at. Firstly, I assume he purposely made them pick Brad Pitt, there's no way he could prepare a Rubik's cube picture for every single person. This probably involved some slight of hands, but I have no idea how it was done.
    If you look at the Rubik's cubes, the first thing that you can see is a lot of green colours around the top layer of the board (or whatever you want to call that big thing with hundreds of cubes) before he reveals who it is. When he revealed Brad Pitt, the top layer was completely covered in green making me think why there weren't colours replacing the green pieces that are on the backside (the other side of the board, not where Brad Pitt is). This may be because there is a second layer of cubes which was prepared in advance. This is just a theory.
    Another thing to point out is how insignificant the four cubes that were randomly placed are. Steven makes them randomly mix the cubes and randomly place them to make it feel like they had an impact on the mosaic. But in reality, it didn't really matter. If you follow the cubes' position as he rotates the board and then reveals the picture, you'll see that those four cubes are actually mixed, but because they're on the outer side of the face of Brad Pitt, you don't actually notice them and they don't actually matter. He just focuses so much on those four cubes that it makes you think that they were the main factors of the results.
    So my theory is, is that he purposely made them pick Brad Pitt, then everything was prepared in advance. The four cubes were just to make the act more interesting and to involve the judges.
    *Act 4*
    For the first part of the act, I think his cubes were set up so that he could easily solve any colour while making it seem like the rest of the cube is scrambled. If you look closely at the colours when he reveals the red and blue faces, you'll notice that there are a lot of colours paired up together, almost like they were all ready to be placed together. To non-cubers, this may seem like a complete coincidence, but cubers will know that these sort of patterns where there are several pairs of colours matched are often seen at the beginning of scrambling a cube. These are patter are very familiar to the ones someone may see after doing a few moves to a solved cube. The red colour was obviously told to him but the blue one I don't know, maybe he peaked and so it or something else happened.
    For the final part of the act, I really had no idea how he did it. The first part with Howdie is sort of easy to understand, it's very similar to his first act. He simply follows Howdie's moves and does the same to his own cube. He holds it behind his back to make it seem that he is randomly scrambling, but everyone knows, or at least every cuber knows, that you don't need to look at the cube to know what you're doing. So all Steven had to do was follow Howdie.
    For the second part of the last trick of the act, I got stuck, I had no idea what he did. I have a theory but it seems unlikely that it's true. If you pay attention to Howdie's moves, he did a full 360° rotation, meaning he went back to the same position, and he did a couple of other moves. So my theory is that before comparing Howdie's cube to his own cube, he somehow quickly reversed Howdie's moves to go back to what the cube looked like, which matched with Simon's big cube.
    If you have any ideas on what he did, let me know in the comments
    *Again, I'm not hating on Steven, I'm just breaking down his tricks based on my understanding.*

      I guess there's some switch kind of thing activates when rotated or pressed against and rotated or some kind of key move that makes the cube to come back to the original position it supposed to be. I guess all of the trick is the same including brad pitt thing, after that guy picked the card, he saw the remaining cards while placing them at desk, so he got to know the one missing was brad Pitt and probably there was some kind automated rotation activated when he placed his left hand on that large cube photo set and pressed something. I mean i have a theory that explains which gives the probability of success to be 1. But i don't know much about rubics

      For the Brad Pitt trick, I thought it was rather obvious that he altered the cubes by hand just before placing them into the holes. It's funny because he makes you pay attention to the tongs but then he does end up touching them with his hands -- I thought it was dead giveaway. One of the only parts of the whole video where I felt like I could see through what he was doing!

    12:34 this is where he changes the cubes. Just check one of the cube faces after Howie mixed it. It doesn’t appear on the final cube. So he had 2 identical cubes hidden and at 12:34 he did the switch. 12:27 look at the green face, it doesn’t match the green face at 13:05.

    I know how he does it.
    First, in the first trick when he told Simon to mix it up. After he hands the cube back to him there are 4 yellow squares together . And when he pulls it out of the bag, the cube is different and there are no 4 yellow square together. He grabs a different cube that is all mixed up and he knows how many moves it take to make it look like the one Simon mixed up .
    Next trick, the card trick. Each side of the cube has a different cut up card in it. He slows down the cards so Heidi only can select 10-12 of the cards in the deck. He knows which cut up pieces of cards are in each cube piece. If you noticed, the cut up card doesn’t match up exactly to the 6 of diamonds.
    He has a great memory.

    1:30 to be honest, I’d assume there were 3 cubes in that bag. One was the solved one, one that he pre-prepared, and the third was Simon’s mixed cube. If you look carefully, the shape of the bag is a cube when he scrunches it / looks solid still.

    if you look closely, he turns it a few times before flipping it. And after he turns it, 3 sides are solved while the other 3 are not. So he just flips the cube in front of Simon to show the 3 solved faces

    in case anyone wondering how the 2nd trick is done with simon , the jumbled cube that he took out to give simon saying that its the one he solved is not it , you can pause the video to check the any of the sides of the cube while simon hand it back to him , take a screenshot , and check again when he compare them side by side , no pattern that initially simon shuffled is seen on both the cubes , which means he made a pattern on his on , one initially and then he made it again on the perfect to cube to make the exact same one , The same goes to the last trick , the pattern that howie shuffled is not the one that he shows up as two ones with the same pattern and simons big one

    At 12:27, when the judge handed him the cube after mixing, we can see the specific color pattern on cube. But when he showed the two cubes together, that pattern wasn't there both times. So bigger cube and the cube he mixed were set to same already, and he swapped the judge's cube with the third set cube while handling them. I wouldn't be as amazed as people watching this.
