I am interested to get this trick .

The problem is that I would never order from Ellusionist since they ask OUTRAGEOUS
HIGH shipping costs to Canada.

I will wait to buy from a Magic Café user.

Tempest, on a scale from 1-10 (10 be hardest) how would you rate the handling of this effect?
the effects sounds mindblowing by the way.

Actually, I just recieved some magnets which I was charged 9$ shipping on, and the whole order itself was about 3$, and on the package itself was the actual posted shipping price; $2.50
It's amazing, people will criticize you for "biting the hand that feeds you," while they're busy praising the hand that beats them.

It's not $9 Shipping, but $9 Shipping & Handling. It requires highly skilled labor to pack up that little box and put a stamp on it - if the slightest mistake is made, Candian Customs will blow up the package as a suspected WMD, and US Homeland Security will put the sender in Guantanamo. Only specially trained and certified packers can avoid this tragic outcome, and they don't come cheap. $6.50 for the job is a steal.

Yeah, but that's a full hours wage, at minimum pay here in Canada.

This sounds like it's going to be a great effect, can't wait to read the reviews.

The new Magic Magazine says it's supposed to be released Nov. 16th. I hope that's right!

I want to copy and paste part of my post from the Ellusionist forums:


"Quote:
What you have to understand is that Sean really does not like the normal card through window effects. Or maybe he has a respect for them but like me he believes they are really lacking. This is a totally new thing here. Or an old principle brought together to bring us a new effect. No throwing decks or anything. Basically the impossible is going to happen, you are goin to slowly and visually pull a card right through the glass. I can't wait for everyones reactions after the preview video is uploaded.

P.H."


"Yes Yes YES! Exactly.

KAOS is for those who are serious about magic. KAOS is for those of you which choose to be realistic in your approach, for those who want an impromptu Signed Card Through ANY Window effect, at YOUR disposal, at ANY time. Think about that.

This effect is not for magicians. This effect was geared towards laymen. I could care less about doing magic for magicians, when I create something, it's for my audience. My audience is the lay community. So, don't get disappointed because it's not a true, REAL miracle.

It's an illusion, and a darn powerful one.

If you appreciate a well thought out, quality thinking, and a simple, effective, and just plain unique effect, this is for you.

If you love magic and you like unique thinking, I'm willing to clean your house if you don't appreciate it.

I'm confident, and I'm truly hoping that you guys appreciate the time and effort that went into this. I've been reading every post, and doing my absolute best to answer all questions fairly and honestly. I just want to make sure you guys understand everything, so when you buy it, you will appreciate it.

It would make me overjoyed to see you guys show an appreciation of an effect like this. I know a TON of you guys, and I would strongly consider this place a family, a community that I trust. I consider all you guys my friends. I just hope everyone takes things into consideration before purchasing this. I would hate to see this exposed, or "borrowed."

It's not about making a quick buck, but rather about me trusting my community, my peers, to be respectful to a fellow brother.

Not everyone will like KAOS, I realize this. But I hope that the efforts won't go unnoticed. : )

||Sean ||"


The police are getting their riot shields right now. Prepare for war against the "Possible."

We are about to break minds my friends. : )

Maybe ellusionist will send out the preview throught their newsletter. that's usually what they do with many other of their dvd's. if its coming out next week then I'm guessing they'll probably send the newsletter at the beginning of the week....i hope.

Just saw the video but it is not visual at all !
Is there something special here ? A palm, some comedy and the trick is done Smile
Maybe there is more to it... But it does not show on this preview video.
