WHo in their right mind would pay 1500 to 1000 for a two inch levitation. I wouldnt even pay 200. maybe a hundred but this was not even worth waiting for. IF that is the ALIUN patent then id have to say that is dumb to go through all that engineering while you can achieve the same hight of the balducci or elevator. I am a big fan of Ellusionist but I'm sorry this was a dumb idea and I'm glad they didn't go through with it.

Oklahoma Magic Man, the "secret" is all over patent sites on the internet. It's listed under the name, "Hoverman". It even has the "Aliun" creator's name as the holder of the patent. I won't mention his name for other reasons. There is no doubt in my mind that the whole situation was a cover-up. Ellusionist was getting tons of Emails regarding the patent, and all they did was keep denying the allegations while still not releasing any new information. It took them a while to realize that this 2-inch levitation could not make it big on the market flaunting a ridiculously high price; all this while their secret was out and were pushed into a tight corner. What do you do? Excuses, delays, and lack of information quickly got old. When all else failed, they created a conspiracy and upset the rare group of potential buyers.

Yeah, that is true. Smile Smile

Ok... Who spilled the beans about the Patent.... Ellusionist must of taking a big lose on this product. After a year and half of R & D on a product, then not releasing this product for safety issues.... Hits hard on the greens in your pocket.

I'm sure there will be some issues, from the patent alone I can see sevral issues such as accidentally "curb checking" your self when the "device" is activated.

Actually the owner of the patent worked with Brad and Jonathan Bayme. I fyou watch the preview you can see at the end credits the patent owners name.

I do however agree with them seeing the fact that no one in their right mind would pay 1000 -1500 for a 2 inch levitation.
Criss Angel performed in Japan, Cyril Performs in Japan, they have the same Spec Levitation....Of course, a coincedence

Someone out there was recently selling the patent plans for a couple hundred dollars. Claiming upon purchase they would send you a link to a "secret government website." They also went on to say that you would be saving money since you would only be paying $500 (IIRC) instead of the purported $1500. Will opputunism never cease?! I personally feel that Ellusionist got worried when E2 came out. It's the same basic effect (plus of minus a few things to a magician's eye). What I wonder is: Did they really think they could sell enough of it to recoup their R&D in the first place? If they did I would have no hesitation in calling them foolish.
