Welcome to our Frequently Asked Questions page!
Q: Are the Apple versions of your illusions available again?
R: In 2010, we launched the world’s first electronic Impression Device compatible with a smartphone: the Psychic Clipboard 3 for iPhone. During the following years, we introduced you to the Chalkboards and Whiteboards compatible with Apple and Android devices. In 2016, after too many technical issues with the iOS 9.xx updates, we chose to stop selling the Apple version and started focusing on Android only.
In 2019, we are thrilled to announce that after months of research and development, we are biting the Apple again! The technology has been completely upgraded to offer a long distance Bluetooth connection (minimum 100 ft / 30m) as reliable as on Android. Icing on the cake, we celebrate this new chapter with prices dropping slightly.
Q: Do I need a phone carrier or plan to use an illusion with my phone?
A: No, you don’t need a phone carrier to use our products with a phone or tablet. You don’t even need a phone number because it uses a Bluetooth signal created independently to connect to the illusion you purchase. As a result, the phone acts just as a receiver, nothing more. But, of course you can use your current phone with whatever plan you have chosen.
Q: Which Android watch should I buy?
A: It must be an Android WEAR watch. The Android phone or tablet must have a minimum of Bluetooth 4.0 and a minimum Android operating system version 6. After this, it is really a matter of taste. The watches available depend on from which country you are ordering.
Take a look for yourself. Scroll to the bottom of the page on the following link to see which are available where you live:
The watches function virtually identically. You can buy a round or rectangular face watch. The round watch face will have a rectangular screen. Only the extreme corners of the writing area will be eliminated. It is highly unlikely your spectator will write anything in this minuscule space.
Q: Psychic Miniboard, Mediumboard or Maxiboard: which one is best for me?
A: This is a matter of personal style and where you are performing. Due to its tiny size, the Miniboard is small enough to fit in your jacket or shirt pocket and lends itself easily to street or impromptu magic. Just plug-n-play.
A smaller venue will be served well by a medium Psychic Chalkboard or Whiteboard. While larger audiences will benefit from the maxi size. Due to the overall dimension, the Maxiboard performs best on an easel and not in the hands of a spectator.
Q: Psychic Chalkboard vs Whiteboard: which one is best for me?
A: This is mostly a matter of taste. Keep in mind the overall design of your show and your character. The Psychic Chalkboard is designed to quickly patinate for a vintage effect. It also will not create a glare in flash photography, under lights or on television.
The Psychic Whiteboard is a more contemporary-looking product and does not leave chalk residue on your hands.
Q: Do you sell spare or replacement parts?
A: It depends. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for prices and shipping of products like extra electronic pens, ink cartridges and paper refills, etc.
Q: Do you sell ungimmicked versions of your devices?
A: Yes. Please email email@example.com for prices since these are not available through our online store.
Q: Do you charge for your apps?
A: Yes, we do charge a manageable fee for our apps to limit the visibility of curious consumers who have not purchased one of our products. The cost of watch apps is a direct result of how much we invested in their programming.
