As this is a toolbox, there are a range of different solves and moves taught. Some algorithms are super short (3 moves), others are longer (18 moves) but with practice these will become second nature and you won't even need to think about the moves.
You don't need to be a memory expert to accomplish these effects and we have plenty of tips to help you learn really quickly.
We've also designed each of the core algorithms to be backwards compatible so you can perform the same algorithm to get back to where you started, which will make learning and practising much easier.
Yes of course. You could perform one of our routines or one you've created yourself using this toolbox. You could even enhance another commercial cube effect or routine you perform on stage.
Whilst predominately designed for performing close-up, there's no reason that our routines wouldn't play to a larger audience.
A nice looking, smooth, speed cube is definitely recommended as it will just make everything easier to learn and perform. We have a particular preference to the magnetic speed cubes.
Check out the cubes we like here. These effects and routines can be done with a shop purchased Rubik's branded cube though - we've tested them. So no it's not a requirement, but will make your life a simpler.
