Engineering and Product development
by Rod Whitlock

A LUMP OF CLAY COMES TO LIFE!

You bring out a small gift bag and pull out a standard container of kid's clay. You peel off the lid, pull out a lump of clay and let your audience freely squish, pull and play with it. You then help the audience mold the clay into a little man (or woman!) The only reason you help is to insure that his little proportions are correct.

YOUR HANDS ARE ALWAYS EMPTY. THERE'S NOTHING INSIDE THE CLAY!

A spectator then takes a final bit of clay and shapes it into a tiny clay heart. She warms the heart in her hands... and for a moment... she THINKS SHE MIGHT feel a tiny heart beat. She gently sticks the tiny clay heart onto Little Man's chest. You then stand the little guy on the flattened empty bag. Someone gently blows on his heart. Then a moment later...unbelievably... Little Man takes his first step!

YES, HE'S MOVING FORWARD AND ACTUALLY WALKING... ONE ASTONISHING STEP AT A TIME!

This is where you have to see the on-line demo to experience the devastating wonderfulness of it all. His entire clay body VISIBLY TURNS AND LURCHES FORWARD with each dramatic step. And not that you'd want to, but you could leave the room, go out for a burger, and Little Man would keep on walking! And after about 10 steps, when Little Man finally stops, anyone can immediately SQUISH HIM INTO A BALL OR TEAR HIM APART... AND THERE'S NOTHING TO FIND BUT A LUMP OF CLAY!

Incredibly Easy.

No switches, palming, steals, etc.

Your hands are always empty.

Empty bag and container can be freely handled by audience at end of effect.

Completely self-contained. Nothing attached to you or your clothes.

Perform completely surrounded in any lighting conditions

Re-sets in two to three minutes.

* Same lump of clay can be used over and over.

$300 (Complete with DVD and extra clay.)

===========

Seeing as the other topic has now been closed, I thought it might be wise to start a *new* thread for people who are genuinely interested in this effect, and any news, updates etc.

(The last thread was 'hijacked' by discussion that was perhaps a little 'off-topic' so if I could please ask that people try and keep things happy on this one - because whilst I enjoyed the conversation and chatter on the last one it seems that the Moderators weren't so keen ;-p)

Can you make this tabletop Golem stop on a selected card like the Koornwinder car?
What happens when a child eats the "playdoh"?
What do you do for the two minute reset?
How portable is this?
What's the best way to cleanup?

Just how toxic is that "playdoh" and how much fuss it this thing to set up and reset?

Real performers need to know if the volunteer making the "heart" needs to rush to wash their hands before eating.

Now what sort of person would delete that post with the suggestion one could make the clay figure into a clown and activate it with a nose?

That path... well if you consider basic questions about safety and practicality a cause to exercise censorship then maybe there are other questions we need to be asking around here.

Remember what happened to the first guy who made a Golem?

Hi!

It's nice to see this thread get back on track. The two individuals who saw this live is there anyway to post your thoughts? Or if they are not members is there any way to get there thoughts on how it looked?

Thanks for starting a thread about this effect.

Yes, real curious - was this something that was done at a set-up table or walking up to a table? Who did the folks at the table react? What happened after?

YEAH - I'd really like to hear a first-hand report on this too. Just in terms of amount of movement and audience reaction more than anything...

I am curious where they saw this as they were saying at the Paul Harris booth they didn't have one available for demo yet. There was a bit of disappointment that they didn't have this there other than a flyer.

I think the rumor may be a bit of an exaggeration.

I thought the whole point of a rumor was to exaggerate.

The demo looks UNREAL! lol It's hard to believe that it wasn't edited. Unless that demo was a fake.

I'm glad you asked because I wasn't sure if he was kidding around.
