WizZon Telegram news channel, pub and cafe

We have seen there are more and more cubers in Brunei. And, we are happy to know more and more sub-10 speedcubers in the country.

Interactions between like minded is the most enjoyable thing to do, that’s the fun part of the hobby. Brunei cubers require peers to learn from each others, exchange ideas, mutually push their PBs or to just chit chat.

We have tried connecting a few individuals, however that didn’t work well as to some it could be uncomfortable to have private chat with strangers at the beginning, and it’s not easy to handle such matter for us. Different circles of friends have created their own chat group only known to their own circle.

It will be a lot more fun to have a public space to just check in and chit chat whenever we are in the mood, and just leave when the mood is not there. You know, like a pub or a cafe – come and go as we wish.

We have created two Telegram public groups to hopefully provide a place for the wiz to hangout.

The public groups allow anyone to just check in and check out anytime s/he wish. The conversations stay and so you can just pass time reading past conversations.

The @wizzonpub intends to be a hang out place for international wiz. But we have not gathered many international audiences.

The @wizzoncafe intends to be the hang out place for Brunei wiz. Hopefully Brunei cubers and wiz can use this space to chit chat and mutually help each others to become better in their hobby. It is a quiet place at the moment. If there is enough crowd in here, we may have some random activities or may be random goodies.

Besides the two Telegram groups, we have an announcement channel, where we post updates and info similar to what we post on Instagram, Facebook and the Twitter.

The @wizzonnews is the Telegram announcement channel of WizZon. Besides offering a mean to share our news with those who don’t like social media platforms, we feel the Telegram channel is more useful than IG. Links are clickable, so it is convenient to check out the links in the post, unlike in IG and FB where web links are not much useful. In Telegram channel, we can easily share third party content such as YouTube videos, which we can’t share on IG. For those who prefer not to been seen on social media, you will be happy to know that no one (apart from WizZon) will know you have joined (aka follow in social media) the channel. Subscribers to the channel don’t see each other.

So, check in our Telegram news channel, pub and cafe. Hope these venues will be more effective for us to share information to the wiz and for the wiz to hangout.

Smart cube is an easy and fun way to learn speedcubing

We have been carrying smart cubes in store and the latest additions are the Giiker Supercube i2 and i3se.

The Giiker Supercube i3se is the successor to the Giiker Supercube i3s. It is the third edition of the Giiker Supercube. The i3se has improved battery life of more than 90 hours of use with one charge. This edition comes with a robotic body that serves as the cube charger, as well as a phone holder when the cube is not on the charger.

Besides the i3se, we have also brought in the first 2x2x2 smart cube, the Giiker Supercube i2. This cube has the same features as its 3×3 sibling. In addition, it is a magnetic cube.

The Giiker smart cubes can be used as a normal speedcubes, or can be connected to the Supercube app on a mobile phone over Bluetooth. The Supercube app is available on Android and iOS.

The fun of the Giiker Supercubes is when they are connected to the Supercube app. The app helps anyone to solve a cube by following the on screen animated guide. You do not need to learn any algorithm to solve a cube. The Giiker Supercubes are equipped with sensors such that the Supercube app can detect its state (positions of the pieces and movements) and display its animation on screen.

For those who wants to learn and improve their speedcubing, the Supercube app provides tutorial, lessons, timer and mini games to help anyone to speedcube. The app records the statistics of your progress as the user progress from beginner to pro.

Perhaps the most exciting part is the community using the Supercube giving the opportunity to interact and have friendly match.

Besides the Giiker Supercube, we also have in stock the premium smart cube from GAN, the GAN356i. GAN has its own app that offers similar features as that of Supercube.

Smart cubes is an easy and fun way to learn speedcubing. Check out the smart cubes in our online store.
