No, you see because Jesse has nebver heard of something that means he must of invented it...right? We all live in our own little vaccums and everything that happened before us is meaningless. After all this is "fresh, original and limitless"!!!!

Well, I know how Jesse feels. I invented what I think is the coolest card trick ( you give the illusion that your shuffling the cards face up and face down and then POOF! They are straightened out and the chose card revealed.

I keep being told some guy named Fernon or something invented it. BUT, I refuse to believe it!

We have all invented tricks only to find out they are 100 years old. It is a testament to our own thought processes. However, we should always be humble enough to accept the facts when presented.

I can never blaim someone for honestly "inventing' something that has already been invented. I mean if they honestly did this without prior knowledge then great, in a way they did invent it. But that does not give them free reign to sell the effect and hopefully when presented with the facts they will aknowledge the truth.

There is very, very little original thought these days in almost any field, especially something like magic. We are all more or less recycling the same basic ideas. This does not mean they are "rip offs" but terms like "original" or "unique" should be used with caution.

I appreciate the facts Brad. I wish I had your resources, Id be coming up with all kinds of new things! Can I come over and hang out sometime!!!! seriously!

I definitely created intact independently. I even made sure to speak to Ron Jaxon. I wanted to talk with him about how creatively similar we really are! I hope someday soon him and I can colaborate... I would be honored! Look at how Cigapen and Outsmokin' go together so well! Basically, similar methods can be the basis for many effects... I feel that the way intact is unique goes beyond the methods. Intact has a very unique way of working when you apply the instructed handling. All of my tricks have a 'it was meant to be' kind of feel. When developing a trick, everything that screws up or works is for a reason, and by the end, I learn all of these really specific nuances and compile them into a perfect package. Once you learn ALL of intact, doors will open to new possibilities in your magic mind. The gaff is very unique, and versatile. I wish everyone could get a chance to see this in person. The reactions are always great! -Jesse

The good news is that the entire Magicana series is slated for republication. It will be a must have.

Jesse, any time you are in Austin, drop me a line.

So let me get this straight you are talking about the skill level of this mint box and how outraged you are that the ad/demo video was misleading. I find it odd that no one even seems to care that this idea may belong to another person. As good as the effect is I would like to know who really came up with it. If indeed it was inspired by another trick on the market that uses a lighter it seems a rip off to me. Just because you do your matrix with red cards instead of blue does not make it a new concept, nor would it be right to market it as such.
So who does the idea really belong to, that way I give my money to the proper person?



So then we can't use known effects or methods as an inspirtion for creating something new? Then we better trash every effect that uses an Elmsley Count....and there are LEGIONS of them.
The difficult must become easy, the easy beautiful and the beautiful magical.

I just got this last night and fooled my family with it...and these folks is jaded, they think they've seen it all.

I will be taking this to a gig I have on Friday night, I'm sure it will fool 'em badly. Many people I'll be performing for know Bob Chesbro and have witnessed his famous Tric-Tac effect...they tell me about it all the time. Smile

I'm very happy with this effect InTact by Jesse

One of the reasons I like this trick so much is it's DIY and you can always get more tic-tac boxes, no special orders to on-line shops and all that rot

9/10

I have intact for quite some time now and it always gets great reactions. I have not read all of the pages here, but I guess everything concerning the trick has been told. I'd give it a 7/10.

the trick itself (card appears in box) is quite strong, but I was missing something (although the principle opens quite a few "doors"). I have built some sort of "conflict" for the magician into the trick and an extra effect. I use a red deck, but a blue card appears inside the box. I remove the blue card and it has their signature on it. simple to to.

Loving Intact. I must admit I did glean the method from this thread before buying, without the knowing the method I may not have purchased.
I have been using this for a torn quarter of a card to impossible location.
So organic, perhaps one of my best buys for several years.
Booyah!
