Count me in, Glenn!

How 'bout I'll bring my UltraTube so it will turn into pilfering galore?! With Davy's help as dragoman (his French is sooo impressive) we'll travel thru whole Glennada! What a blast! Smile

Any chance you've tinkered around with Nobuyuki Nojima's 'Linking Dice'?


Well, I just heard back from Japan!

My good friend Maspo Tato was carbable of getting a glimpse into Nojima's handling. Here's his reply to me asking about the required skills:

"The moaning never dice!"

Oh boy, that's Maspo as I know and love him.... always talking in his own special haikuesque poetic tongue. Smile

For those who don't know him: he's basically saying that the sleights are somewhat demanding and need good rehearsal to look as smooth as in the video.
Bummer. Smile

At least I'll now have the Canadian TROP (tourist rip off project) to focus on!






But wait... am I not a tourist then myself?? Smile

I just saw Linking Dice demonstrated at the IBM/SAM Convention. No gimmicks, but also you switch fingers (which you do not with any earlier version using match sticks or cigarettes) and thus it is a step backward. And it's difficult.

It's such a wonderful eye-candy effect. Too bad it's such a dodgy methodology. Thanks for the info Richard. How was the IBM/SAM convention btw?

I spent the whole convention in the dealer room because I had a stand myself. Thus the only magic I see is when there is a lull and I can walk around and see what the other dealers are selling.

Some guy from Asia had the most amazing lenticular playing cards: You see a blue-backed Bike change to a red back slowly, no cover, and it's amazing. The ridges required for the lenticular were very very fine, and thus not visible from 18 inches away. I'm going to try and remember to demo it in my next video in Genii (More Genii Speaks) in the September issue.

I find that super interesting. Glad I asked the question. Thanks for the share mate.
