That's the beauty of this, it's a NEW way of creating levitation and I'm just passing along my preferred handlings. A whole world of possibilities will present itself to those creative types out there.


It seems that with Enlightenment the possibilities are endless and are limited only to ones imagination! Hence for such a versatile device/ prop, I feel that an exclusive FORUM is a must .

Don't miss out on this alluring device!

My wife: "Why are you checking the computer every twenty minutes?"

Me: "... well...uh... the info pack for "Enlightenment" may be released soon."

My wife: "What's that?"

Me: "Well... actually it may represent a paradigm shift in playing card levitation and utilises MLP."

My wife: "Ahh..."

To make the WAIT more interesting, Ben should not post the 'Info-Pack' on the web-site but send a secret download link to all registered members. Smile Smile

P.S. I can see lots of brick-bats coming my way . . . let me duck . . . Smile Smile

Ben, Save me . . . Save me . . . Save me please!! Smile

Ustaad,

That's EXACTLY what I'll have to do. I have no time to address the website right now. More important to get things to the printers on time.

S0, within 24 hours I will email the link to the INFO PACK to all registered folk. This is freeware, so to speak, so feel free to publish the address here at the Café, or anywhere else you like. Spread the word, talk about it. Think about it.

There will be a small "introductory offer" which is something I don't normally do. But, there are so many requests for autographed copies that I will send out a few direct. The "Info Pack" will have all the details.

So, see ya all on the other side!

Evolve: Your name says it all! The way we are presenting this has "evolved" since that info was posted. When you download the "Info Pack" you will see an option to order 1 of a 100 limited "installed units." These are available ONLY to the first 100 purchasers of the Boxed set as an optional extra. So, you end up with 2 GIMMICKS --one for varied useage, one custom installed for operation with a Blue Backed Bicycle Deck. The option is $59.95. 100 only.


Ben,

This post kind of confused me. I thought Enlightenment was being released now where it no longer required you to alter the gaff so that it works (to float cards). I am confused about this 100 only option.

Is it that when you order the boxset which includes the installed gimmick, for 49.95 extra, you get a gimmick that is not the installed version so that you can mess around with it?

I like to order all my magic through my local magic shop so is this option only something I can do by getting it directly through your website?

Also an off-topic question on Enlightenment since you mentioned it comes installed for a blue back deck. My preference are red backed decks, is blue the only option for Enlightenment?

Ah! Now for sure, a few bricks are going to hit me. . . .ducking will not suffice, need to hide under a bomb proof shelter . . . running towards the shelter . . . going . . going .. gone.

Ah! Now I feel I am safe. I will surface only after the 'Info Pack' has been released. Till then . . .

Hi Wesker,

The gimmick has evolved so that it is now multi-use. While the concept was initialy developed for the Floating Card Application, it is now useable for other leviations effects--with dollar bills, etc.

So, when you buy the Limited Edtion Box Set you receive the multi-purpose gimmick that you can elect to "adapt" to your fave brand of cards.

The included book teaches all you need to know. There is a "Basic Install" which will take you 20-30 mins. It's really easy. Once you've played with this and performed the effect for a while you can then advance to the "Pro Install" which may take you an hour.

The fact that you can use the gimmick for MULTI-PURPOSE applications seemed way more important than limiting this to a Floating Card Application.

For instance, the book includes a bonus effect: FLOATING DOLLAR OFF KNEE.
This as a super cool effect that is exactly what the title says. When seated with spectators, at the bar, restaurant, wherever, you borrow a dollar note. It is folded in half and then placed on a spectator's knee. By rubbing it gently you create a static charge and the BILL FLOATS, HOVERS and DESCENDS. You are clean.

The inclusion of this effect would not have been possible UNLESS we provided the multi-purpose gaff.

At this time, the Custom Installed Deck is available as a "thank you" for those who registered for further information and those who act with enthusiasm early on.

In due course IT WILL be available from all dealers.
But that may be a year away.

There will also be other products like THE DEVELOPMENT KIT,
another book called FURTHER ENLIGHTENMENT, etc.

But for now the boxed set gives you EVERYTHING you need.

Quick Start Manual
12 Month Warranty
100 Page Book, THE ULTIMATE FLOATING CARD

Hope this helps.

Cheers

Now I can see why you have so much confidence in tipping the method! This is ingenious! I will be sure to order this when it is released to all distributors (Ben already knows the reason why). Thank you very much and congratulations on this amazing effect. *** right it is a Paradigm Shift! Oh it is a shame I have to wait so long!

I received my info pack this morning and it seems to be everything Ben said it was, and then some. In the early stages there was talk of offering a book which explained a DIY method of constructing the gimmick. After reading through the info pack I'm glad he decided to professionally produce these. Definitely looking forward to this.

Since Ben doesn't take email orders how do you know if you are of the first 100 or unlucky 101 or higher. Now don't tell me if you missed the boat and weren't one of the first 100 he won't charge anything. If I go through the work of filling out the form and mailing it I should know if I am going to get one or not.
Ben wants everything through the post I take it.
