Hi Robert.

The Gimmick is multi-purpose. You can do an "install" for the Floating Card Application, or use the gimmick for other levitation possibilities--dollar notes, etc.

A quick install is easy and will take you 20 mins.
The Pro Install takes an hour.

Both are clearly taught with huge photos (like the book, Session [which came out of our art studio]).

In the future, we will make a full run of pre-installed decks in a variety of backs. Late 2008.

Hope this helps.

Cheers

Simcoscor,

Well... in light of what has been discussed / revealed, I kind of think this whole thread is now a candidate for secret sessions.

That looks fantastic Ben... glad to see your inspirations are still happenning!
I can't WAIT to have a play.

I for one plan on actually TRYING this effect out and reviewing it based upon what it does, what one gets, how it might be used, by whom, under what circumstances and in what way... you know, a review? A thing one writes based on experience of a product and an open mind?

I know it's a crazy concept but otherwise a person runs a small risk of just looking like an IDIOT if they were to "go off on one" without being in posession of the product, facts or common courtesy. Hey, give it a try folks...it makes a change from writing things just for the thrill of feeling "involved" huh?

Sorry to rant Ben... but I had just read some older posts here and decided to vent spleen on the usual morons...and to be patronising to them (that means to talk down to a person). Smile

I believe I read somewhere that not only could they look under the card when it is floating but they can also snatch it from mid-air and find nothing!

Yeah , I heard the bit about takng it from mid-floating
but I just wondered how it would go if they decided to take a peek during the float too?

Ben,
This thought just occured to me...when doing the effect, should one be worried about the spectators watch stopping and potential damage that might cause? also, when performing the effect, should one stay clear of those with a pacemaker?

Hi Matt,

The spectators may take the card at any time. You are always clean.

Hi MagicMan,

All warnings are included on te packaging. You should always take care with PK Styled magnets and effects like this.

Cheers

I guess we cant perform too many other effects before and after this one with the same deck?

Hi Matt,

You can perform an entire act with the deck. Hand the deck out for shuffling, then produce the four aces, go into your fave routine with them. Have cards selected at will, THEN go into Enlightenment when you are ready.

In fact, the effect of Enlightenment is stronger if you have been using the deck throughout.

Cheers

This sounds completely unbelievable!!
I can't wait to try this out for myself.

The spectator shuffling the deck and choosing their card at
will is the part that really intrigues me.

The effects on the DVD and lecture notes are far beyond your abilities. (They require mastery of the mechanic's grip.) It would only break your heart.

My freaking goodness... :O

Why I didn't read this thread sooner I have no idea! The spec being able to take and examine the card is really quite scary. I hope that this really is so practical it's scary... I'm seriously intrigued.

I'll be watching developments on this one!
