Topic: Perpetuity Tubes
Message: Posted by: Jaxon (Apr 21, 2006 10:28AM)
I finally got enough routines worked out to release this E-book. My first thought when I created it is that it's a perfect trick to use with my Bill Burner trick because the object looks natural with a cigarette lighter. But the more I played around with it the more ideas came up with it.

It uses one of those little glass cigar tubes that you can find in gas stations and cigar shops. I'm sure you've seen them. They're little cigars that are about the size of a cigarette and they are sold individually.

The Perpetuity Tube allows you to make small objects such as rolled up dollar bills or cards, salt (pepper/sugar) and just about anything small enough to fit in them to appear and vanish very visually. Think of it as a kind of clear bill tube but the magic is more visual.

You can also make things turn into other objects. For example:

-Dump a cigarette out of the tube to be used later. (I sometimes perform Outsmokin with it first)
-Barrow a dollar bill and vanish salt into a dollar bill (T-tip).
-Vanish the bill (I use bill burner).
-The bill appears inside the tube.
-Dump the bill into a spectators hand but it visually turns into the salt.
The vanished bill is found inside the cigarette that has been on the table the entire time.

That's just an example of a routine I've been performing with this. I'm sure you can understand how the ability to make things change into other objects or vanish and appear opens doors for many routines.

Anyway, It's available on my site now. Let me know if you have any questions or comments.

Ron- you have a typo on your online blurb: "But that's now all you can do with these little tubes."
I think you mean "NOT all you can do"- which leaves a different impression!

Looks interesting but since I don't carry cigar tubes with me I'll wait for the reviews. P.S. I have loved Outsmokin' and Bill Burner.

Thanks so much for the heads up on the typo. I looked right over it and didn't see it. Glad it was caught soon before to many saw it..LOL

By the way. I called it Perpetuity Tubes for a couple fo reasons. The funny reason is I have a hard time pronouncing that word.. :) The second is because the word bascially means endless or infinity. That came to mind because ideas just keep popping up with it.

I just thought of another one that I probably should have included in the E-book but I just thought of it a few minutes ago. So I'll just describe it now. Anyone who knows how it works will be able to figure this out.

-Display a hundred dollar bill. Roll it up and put it in the tube for safe keeping.
-Borrow a one from someone and magically turn it into a hundred.
-The one is now inside the tube.

Oh, I was just talking to my friend Jason Whittaker while I was writing this post in an IM and he had a good idea. This same gimmick might work with a Tic-Tack box. I'm going to give it a try.

For those who wouldn't want to carry a glass cigar tube around with you for this one. I found something the other. Actually, this actually called me by name when I saw it. You'll see what I mean in a moment.

Again I happened to see this at a gas station. You know those energy pills they sell? I'm not suggesting you actually take the pills but they sometimes come in plastic tubes that look like the cigar tubes. I actually like these better because they are a little smaller so they are easier to work with for switching. Also the fact that they are plastic makes them better.

Here's an image of the kind I picked up. Since I found them I notice that they are in most gas stations that sell this type of things.

See what I mean about them calling me by name? They are called "black JAX". It's funny because the price tag was stamped over the word "black" so all I saw was the word JAX. :)

Anyone purchased this yet and would care to give a review?

Not yet, but I'll take a chance and order it. Actually, it's not much of a risk as Jaxon's stuff is consistently very good. I'll write a review when I get a chance.

Sorry, seem to have forgotten that Jaxon is Ron's last name, not his first. Didn't mean to be rude by continually addressing you by your last name.

That's okay kamus. I'm deaf so you can call me anything you want. I can't hear you anyway.. :) I know, that line only work in person and not on the net. But seriously, people call me both so it don't matter.
