Brass, yes Plastic..well, it's usually not as durable as the brass. but at least we know the gimmick is not constructed of cardboard or paper. That's a good omen, I'd say.

Funny, guys!

Latest --

We are working on having this factory made. Precision work in plastic and brass.
If this all works out, then there will be no book, no self-construction, just a beautifully made gimmick and instructions. The price would come down too. Possibly, $69.95 - complete.

This is not definite, there are still lots of details to sort, but it will still be a May release.

Cheers

Ben


Blimey !!!

My mind has gone into overdrive now trying to figure out how this may work. One things for certain it doesn't feel like any of the more obvious solutions to this effect.

Count me intrigued X 10 !!!

Well, it's a brass and plastic device that causes the card to apparently rise..HOWEVER, the device is somehow INVISIBLE, because the spectator can look directly under the card, (unlike Alida,) Ben tells us, and not see it.

Conclusion? Simple. It's an invisible brass and plastic thingy..made of, well, ummm, invisible brass and plastic, what else?

Shoot. You could make this yourself. Just go down to your local hardware store, and ask the man where they keep their invisible brass and plastic.....

Honestly you got me now Ben...I thought it was a different method/principle.
Now reading what it is made of and STILL 'permitting' the spectator to touch/remove the card....you got me too...LOL

Very well done Ben!

That's like a good innovator, manufacturer & a gentleman. You're creating History!

Good luck & thank you Ben!

I have a feeling Paul Harris will be tickled over Ben's creation!

I'm still shocked by the video.

Huh? Wha..? Reveal the method before we buy? Have I stumbled into an alternate universe? That's probably the most amazing thing I've ever read in the Magic Café!
Ben, my hat is off to you and my wallet open.

Hi Eric,

Thanks for your confidence in "definitely buying this."

But, please, the purpose of the upcoming "reveal" will be to give you the info you really need to make that decision. I'm 100% sure you'll want to walk across hot coals for this when you know the method, but I want you and everyone to wait and make an informed decision. There is so much crap out there, you deserve to know exactly what you are buying.

Cheers

I have to concur we deserve to know exactly what we are buying with ALL the effects we purchase from any and all dealers..however, in 99% of the cases, we are either outright lied to or at very least only told a fraction of the real truth....or told a half lie.

No kidding! There is a lot of crap out there... It is time that we introduce a 'quality control' to magic tricks/illusions.

I think to reveal the method before a purchase is made very courageous and on the other hand shows great confidence and trust to your customers. Nevertheless, and IMHO, I would have everyone sign a non-disclosure before revealing the facts...

I will even buy this without knowing the exact method (although I have an idea after you mentioned the materials).

This is awesome Ben. Very well done!
