Thanks for the news Ben. I am really looking forward to the release.
Andrew, (ASW)
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.

Me either but it sounds and looks like it will definitely be worth the wait.

I predict this thread will become personal and then eventually someone will post "a scathing truth" after which another person will request for it to be locked.

Well, I'll get personal then...9 times outta 10, I love Ben's stuff. True, a couple of 'em were clinkers for me but they were the exception, not the norm.
I'm looking forward to this one.

It's the six month wait that's killing me.

Hi Guys,

Best wishes for the upcoming holiday season to you all.

Here is the latest.

Enlightenment release date: May 2008.
TV Rights are being negotiated with great care.
Manufacturing Rights for the non-card applications are under negotiation.

Pricing for the Floating Card Version:

Here are are couple of ideas.

What do you think is the way to go?

1/ 100 only EVER at $1000.00
2/ 1000 only EVER at $100.00
3/ Unlimited quantities of
-- Book (120 pages, history and full construction of Floating Card $39.95
-- Bits N Pieces Pack $19.95
-- Full complete working set (with book) $100.00

Serious discussion and thoughts, please.

Also, would you guys like Enlightenment Floating Cards made with any specific cards? The standard will ship as Blue or Red backed Bicycles.

I'm prepared to make 100 sets in the back design that gets the most votes.

Cheers and Happy Holidays

2 or 3 perhaps.... I'm bias as I would never afford the 1 grand version. I can understand 2 limited quantities and not to many.

I like the unlimited not because of the fact that it is unlimited but for the full bundle at $100 would keep this out of the hands of kids that would reveal this but accessible to actual magicians that would use it and respect it

I think a 39.95 book is reasonable
Didn't you say you would release an inexpensive DVD showing just the basic method to see if the customer would then be willing to make the gimmick and buy the full package?

I vote for #3, and red backed bikes for me.

I would prefer #2, but would not be very upset with either this one or #3.

The reason is that there are 2 to many low end choices on #3, that the curious seekers could afford, and might not mind spending, just to learn the secret. Especially the one for under $20.00.

And #1 is out of my ball park.

I would suggest option 3(c) i.e. unlimited quantities of full complete working set (with book) $100.00.

The price seems to be just right for ALL serious performers genuinely interested in the effect.

P.S. Eagerly looking forward to an early release of Enlightenment.

The book would be fine for me...I like the DIY approach personally.

Sell the book along with the completed unit so you can know the history and how to make the gimmick as well as being able to use it right away. If it's too difficult to make the gimmick (Or just plain time consuming), then sell the package in a limited quanity of a thousand sounds best.

A month or so ago Ben Harris shared specific details of his Enlightenment effect with me in confidence. It is incredible. This is one of those effects where the method is as cool or better than the effect. When Ben fist described this item with me quite some time ago he advised that it "feels like you are doing real magic". NOW I can see why he said this. Many will assume this is hype and overlook this. If you have such concerns then definitely wait when it comes out for further feedback because it DOES sound too good to be true. The funny thing it is not. Once it hits the market and people SEE how good this is I predict this will become a staple item that will have people talking for years to come. It won't be out for a while as noted in this thread... most likely not until around May or June 2008. But when it comes out I think it will create quite a storm. It's just beautiful.
