The Prestihatitator is the tier 1 Magic station used to prototype basic Magic and Refine recipes. The Prestihatitator requires a Science Machine to prototype, and costs 4 Rabbits, 4 Boards, and 1 Top Hat to craft. Prototyping an item using the Prestihatitator will increase Sanity by 15.

The Prestihatitator has a 10% chance of spawning a Rabbit when used to prototype a new recipe.

In Shipwrecked DLC, Prestihatitator is replaced with Piratihatitator, which is crafted with a Parrot as the live animal ingredient instead of Rabbits, which are not found in Shipwrecked worlds.

Prototype.png Tips[edit | edit source]

  • As with any other recipe that requires limited use items, any durability Top Hat can be used when crafting a Prestihatitator. And when it is hammered, a full durability Top hat will be returned.
  • Beardlings can be used instead of Rabbits to craft a Prestihatitator.
  • Rabbits produced from this machine are homeless and sleep outside at night, making them easy food.

Placeholder.png Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The name "Prestihatitator" is a portmanteau of "prestidigitator" and "hat".
  • The Prestihatitator spawning Rabbits is a reference to the magic trick of pulling a rabbit from a hat.
  • The Prestihatitator used to have a more costly recipe: 1 Living Log, 4 Gold Nuggets and a Top Hat.

Mosquito.png Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • There is a bug in which even if the player has the required crafting materials, the Prestihatitator will remain uncraftable.[Verification Needed]
