Isolated by Kieron Johnson
ATTENTION! YOU DO NOT NEED TO KNOW HOW TO SOLVE A CUBE TO DO THIS TRICK.
SIGNED RUBIKS CUBE IN BOTTLE. YOU HEARD THAT RIGHT.
Object to impossible bottle is THE most talked about trick in magic. It sends audiences spinning.
Dynamo did it with a phone, Jamie Grant became a staple of Ripley’s Believe it or not by putting a deck inside a bottle. Now Kieron Johnson is changing the industry by putting a signed rubiks cube in bottle.
We’ll repeat that again. A spectator’s SIGNED rubiks cube to impossible bottle.
Even with the power of 10,000 suns, it cannot be taken out. Let them shake, rattle or spin it to their heart’s content. It’s trapped for good.
“Very direct and practical. I can’t wait to use it in my show!” - Henry Harrius
"Kieron has evolved the cube in bottle effect to create a powerful weapon in cube magic." - Takamiz Usui
Like Isolated will, Cube magic is taking the world by storm lately, appearing on every major TV Talent show in some form or another. The hard part is finding one that hasn’t gone viral.
Audiences know how difficult solving a cube is, so instant solves are impressive… but their cube appearing trapped in a small glass jar is literally MAGIC.
In over 2 hours of extensive explanations you’ll learn Kieron’s many ways of fitting this easily into a routine. A true worker, he performs this multiple times at every walk-around gig to every single stage appearance.
The cube gets into the bottle in seconds and is 100% examinable.

I used this for the first time at the restaurant I work at - and it left the spectators totally floored. "That's your signature, isn't it? How'd you get that in there?" Two of them knew what was coming, and they were still blown away. This is worth every penny
Kieron lefever is one incredible creator. This really is dynamo style magic for the working pro without stooges or camera tricks. The material taught with this is superb. The quality of the product is faultless.
I wish I could rate 4.5 stars. The effect is excellent, but there are some issues. For comparison, I think it’s a much stronger trick than Rubicon (retail $350), which I saw Greg Wilson perform live. He kills with Rubicon because he is a great entertainer. I’d love to see what he could do with Isolated. I really don’t think Kieron’s style is helping - look at the reactions he gets. There are two performances for laymen. One reaction is good, not great, the other barely registers. The third performance, for a magician, gets a huge reaction, because the magician “gets” what a hard-hitting effect this should be.
A couple of the claims should be addressed. “Resets in 30 seconds.” Yes, but you will need privacy; can’t do it walking around. “Don’t need to be able to solve a cube.” That’s not at all realistic. When practicing, you will make errors and scramble the cube. You will have to solve it or take it apart to get back to start position.
- Isolated 9/10. One drawback is that the cube must go out of sight for a moment or two. The routine deals with this, but I’d like to see a more direct approach. Also can be a little noisy. Best parts - it fools, and is 100% practical and dependable. No angles. Totally examinable.
- Jazz 9/10. Three cube routine with a lot of potential. You must actually solve a cube while trying to entertain, so you need to be quick about it.
- A routine with RD360 gimmick. 10/10. The hidden gem in this package. Harrius’ gimmick retails for $155, but turns this into a brain smashing effect. Scrambled, signed cube to solved, signed cube in jar. More impossible because the spectator scrambles the cube!
- Kev G CubeCards routine 7/10. Nice, but seems to be getting away from the point.
- Freakapped 6/10. Cute throwaway trick. Why is it here?
Video 6/10. Would be adequate for a $30 trick. Sloppy camera work, lack of editing, rambling explanations. With pro pricing comes pro video production.
Performances 6/10. Really the weakest part of the package. Jazz routine in particular is not at all entertaining as presented. The RD360 variant is very solid as is. Be prepared to start over from scratch when crafting your presentation.
Craftsmanship 10/10. Good quality, but typical-looking speedcubes, prelubricated. Nice cloth bag. All the sneaky stuff works great. (Tip: use a plastic spudger for the reset tool). The end state cube in bottle is perfect.
I don’t mean to slam Kieron. I don’t like his performance style, but he seems like a great guy, has a stellar rep, and is obviously fiendishly clever. As an amateur, I’ve never paid anything close to this price for a single effect, but I did it without blinking and I’m glad I did. I hope my comments help people decide for themselves.
Any pro who is doing Rubik’s cube work who doesn’t jump on this should turn in their business cards.
