I know that Ban Harris' upcoming Enlightenmentis already a part of a topic here but I think he must have his own one!

Hi Harv,

I learned my lesson. The earplug (used in Alida to float a card)was too way out for magicdom in general. Plus, the spectator could not look under or lift the card. That was the biggest fault - the spectator could not look at their whim.

One of my personal targets when creating Cosmosis: The Original Floating Match, way back in 1986, was that the spectator be able to "take the floating match out of the air."

Since that time, I've wanted to do the same thing with larger objects. Cards specifically - because I love card magic.

20 years later, the solution is at hand. The spectator may grab the floating card and look under it. They find nothing attached to the card. They find nothing under it. It's performable with most brands of playing card, is instantly repeatable and can be performed surrounded. If you're the kind of performer who is happy to leave home with a deck or two in his pockets, then you will be set to perform this new effect at any time. It is so practical it's scary.

Full info is now available at http://www.wowbound.com
video demo available at wowbound.com (as appearing in Volume 1 of Reel Magic Quarterly)


No earplugs with the new effect, promise.

Hi guys,

Thanks for your interest.

I will try and refrain from any more comments because this will not be out for a little while. We cannot release the method until all the legals are sorted.

Quite seriously, the Floating Card application is just the tip of the iceberg. This will revolutionize micro-levitation. I know that's bold and brassy to say, but I've looked for this for 20 years, as have others.

A major problem with non-thread levitation has been solved, practically. And, it's so simple and "just right" that people will wonder "how can THAT have taken 20 years?"

Well, it takes 20 years because you examine every possible avenue. Every angle. Over and over until little variations mutate into fully fledged ideas and you go off on a new direction. 20 years later you "see" something new - fully formed - in your head. It's the result of all of those years churning the possibilities over and over in the mind. And, it ends up being so simple, direct and "right" you kick yourself.

So, anyway, enough of my ramblings. I really sound "full of myself." I don't mean to, I just get excited!

If you register at http://www.wowbound.com we'll be sure to advise you of any updates and the release of the INFO pack in the near future.

Cheers

Ben

Please, visit his website and watch the first demo of Enlightenment!

Indeed,it looks very good and the point that the spectator can grab the card out of his levitated status is great and one of the biggest selling points for this effect.
If it will be practical enough its gonna be a winner Smile
Looking forward for more info about the effect!
greetings from germany

Yep, I signed on the list to hear the latest updates on this. I agree with all the posters here. Having the card levitate in the spectator's own hand is freaking powerful stuff.

Some people consider Mr. Harris to have had his share of 2nd and 3rd chances. I, however, am not one of them.

Especially with Hole in the Head. Even though I do not own it, I DO know what the fuss was about and believe me, what a bunch of bs all the complaining was.

It is some unique thinking, and given the nature of the effect, come on, what did you expect? Double undercuts?
It's amazing, people will criticize you for "biting the hand that feeds you," while they're busy praising the hand that beats them.

"You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one."

I won't forget you Robert.
