I think someone will eat their words when they see what ALONE can really do...

Ever wanted to tell someone their pin # or passcode ? I've been using ALONE for months and that's exactly what I've been doing with it. That, amongst a whole load of other incredible things!

First of all I don't think the "which hand" use of ALONE was weak.

On the contrary it was well routined (think about the other subtleties used and you will see what I mean).

Having said that, it was not my cup of tea (but neither is any child's play or similar device since I can achieve that by other means).

But think about telling someone their PIN NUMBER or finding an OBJECT HIDDEN into a room, without codes or stooges...

This possibility alone has many applications for some experiments I do with a pendulum...


If I were you, I would run to reserve my ALONE right now...

Right... I think a lot of you are missing my point...

First off, I'm not here to argue about the originality of the effect. Just about everything in magic is a variation of another. There are multiple ways to tear and restore a newspaper, but Gene Anderson's is pretty much the best there is.

Likewise there are numerous ways to discover the location of a PK Ring or other similar item. Child's Play is pretty much the best there is.

Bottom line... A watch or a hidden wire is infinitely more covert than a wad of business cards...

Child's Play isn't limited to the "Which Hand?" effect either. The functionality of the two products is essentially the same.

I really hope that I'm proven wrong, but right now I really believe I can accomplish any effect possible with this thing just as well or better with my Child's Play...

As I said... I hope I'm proven wrong. Right now it looks like the method's are pretty much identical...

Each to their own Matt, each method with its own merit. I have a feeling that Chris's DVD of additional ideas will give this the edge over other items as he puts together an excellent package. Some of the rivals give you the effect alone and maybe one effect, and lets face it, there are plenty of buyers out there who don't have a great amount of creativity to enable them to think of alternative routines for the item. I'm sure it will do well.
Best Wishes. Mark

do not match: either the thing is a new concept or is a rehash of old ideas: can't be both !!

One of you is either lying or don't know what he is talking about.

Psychic Samurai,

This would be the best marketing plot one could come up with... Smile



Psidroid,

I understand what you say, but if I had to take sides, guess which of the two posters I would believe? Smile

Hmm. You have seen the comment from Andy Nyman. Stay tuned for comments from other performers who have played with this, such as Jeff McBride (he DEFINITELY knows what he is talking about).

All the best,

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to add my two bits here. I have had the pleasure of being a part of seeing the wonderful development of Alone from my buddies Chris and Matt for over a year.

I can tell you all that it is something VERY SPECIAL!!!

Yes they are my buddies and yes I have contributed some of the goodies for their wonderful Alone effect and helped them film Alone all over Vancouver in all kinds of live situations, BUT please do not think for a moment that this is something that is a rehash of something else.

The things you can do with Alone are unsurpassed by anything out there of this nature. This goes well beyond any type of one trick wonder for anyone out there who thinks that is what Alone might be. I have been using my Alone for a long time and laypeople and magicians alike are left speechless. I know because I have used it on both very informed magi and even more paying customers in my corporate work and adult show private parties.

There is a very good reason why this release is called Alone and I am sure that when Chris and Matt introduce a new demo every week, you will see what I mean.

I haven't done a whole lot of mentalism much in the last 7 years but Alone is the spark I have been waiting for, for many years. It is with me always when I head out for a gig and I also use it loads when I am just out and about in everyday life as I never know who I will be standing in line with, or waiting to wow with a miracle that may lead to a future booking.

Bring on the videos fellas!!!
Tony
As magicians we create what onlookers call magic. If they truly believe in what we have created for them to witness then magic is real!!!
