Have you always wanted to perform 'Which Hand' with confidence? Read on!

More than three times as powerful as its predecessor, this tiny device allows you to perform a variety of beautiful mind-reading effects including the classic, 'which hand.' Place the sensor under your watch strap and a silent vibration will let you know in which hand a volunteer has hidden a magnetic coin.

Sixth Sense 3 now works with all magnetic currency, even smaller coins like the US quarter!

The Effect

You challenge a volunteer to a simple guessing game. They hide a coin in one of their hands, and you guess which one it is in. If you get it wrong, they win $100.

You win but propose a new game. This time you play again, but for $1000...

Playing just as well in a casual environment as to an audience of thousands, this is only one of a number of possible effects that can be performed, from predictions to multi-spectator routines. Any magnetic object can be used: coins, PK rings and more.


We have upgraded the device to detect all kinds of magnetic currency, even smaller coins such as the US quarter or UK 10p.

Example Coins:

  • Magnetic Quarter Dollar/UK 10p (Range: 12cm)
  • Magnetic £1 (Range: 15cm)
  • Magnetic 50c Euro (Range: 17cm)
  • Magnetic US Half Dollar/PK Ring (Range: 18cm)
Built-in Vibration

No need for a separate receiver - Sixth Sense 3 silently vibrates to alert you that a magnetic coin is within range. Each vibration motor has been hand-selected to ensure quiet and reliable operation.

Rechargeable Battery

Sixth Sense 3 can be charged from any USB socket and has more than 6 hours of battery life.


Customize your device with an optional iOS app that allows you to change the strength of the vibration, boost the range and more! Don't have an iPhone? Change the settings using the button on the device itself.

Advanced Use

Using the app, it is possible to double the normal range of the device! This means that for larger coins like the magnetic half dollar, a 30cm+ range can be achieved.

By placing the device in a belt loop or attaching it to a chest strap under your shirt, it is now possible to perform 'Which Hand' by simply walking up to the volunteer. No hand movements. No palming. No sleeves. This elevates the effect into the realm of the impossible, but it does take practice - boosting the range in this way is recommended for experienced users only!


Dimensions: 17 x 34mm
Battery: 6+ hours, rechargeable
Includes: The sensor, USB charge cable, link to online instructions

Please note: A magnetic coin is not included with this device!

    Gabriel asks: Can this unit detect a shimmed magnetic playing card? like the one you sell ? if so in what distance, thanks

    • 1. Tony answers: I think it's possible since the shimmed card involved metal. Distance - I'm not sure since I didn't try but I'm assuming it should be close

    Joe asks: Does it work with normal, legal tender coins which happen to be attracted to magnets? Or does the coin/material have to be an actual magnet itself? (Some coins can be magnetic but not are magnets themselves)

Customer reviews for Sixth Sense 3



Absolutely brilliant! It is completely reliable and never fails on you. It’s very hidden and comfortable to wear. The only drawback is that sometimes it detects watches, phones, wallet, etc.



If the unit gets near my Apple watch it will vibrate as if it was a magnet and when this happens the sensitivity of the unit is set to zero and will no longer work until you reset the device. Cannot hide this under the band of an Apple watch for this reason and because of the shape of the unit, it won't stay under the band anyway. I contacted Mr. Shelley and he said this could happen with some watches but had no fix for it. There is an option to change the sensitivity of the unit but this is completely worthless if you set it above 20% the unit will go off every time you move it so it is impossible to tell if it went off because there was a magnet or movement of the unit. The unit does work well if you leave the sensitivity at 20% and take your watch off.

Disappointing purchase for $300
