Gentlemen, BEHOLD: the Eviltron

Do not underestimate the power or the imagination, given even the smallest amount of outside stimulus...

Continuously on... Sounds at random intervals between 2 and 8 minutes. Battery life of approx 1 month.

I heard the next model will have a proximity detection switch, which I am really REALLY looking forward to.

Walt I found a practical joke calculator, for 'office pranks' [*shudder*]; it had 5 'comedy' sounds, but the last was user-recorded. It sounded a bit tinny, so speech sounded just like it was recorded, but scratching sounds were just fine.
It was remotely activated on a keyfob - all for £10. I'll do a search and see if I can find a similar model.

This has been out since before halloween...

For a presentation on Auditory hallucinations, we hid then all over the auditorium... at the end of the presentation - we asked if anyone heard anything odd or strange and processed those experiences...

Not sure if the deal is the same I had but you got 2 for 1 up to 10.

Another fav you can get - the annoyatron 2.0

These are cheap enough to hide and leave at a clients house after you perform a seance. Just suggest before you leave that sometimes the ghost can linger after a seance. Smile

I've to mention that the eviltron has a "ON/Off" mode. When you won't use it, you can shut it. The Eviltron battery will probably last far more than a month if you don't let it ON all the time. Thanks Gaddy for mentionning this item.

While there, check out the annoy-a-tron. Nothing to do with mentalism but I have had a ton of laughs with the cricket setting at my family and co-workers expense.

I have looked at ordering one of these myself. Has anyone played with one yet? I see this as a very useful device right up with TV be gone.

This post is 'On' topic but with a slight diversion for just some thoughts:
This new technology where anything/everything can happen at the press of a button becomes more apparent to the Greater World day by day.
It seems people will use the "high-technology" out as explanation to answer anything they can't quite explain. Even if it is a well executed sleight or simple but clever material gimmick.
So it seems, the more cunning we must become in disguising our methods by drawing on outward simplicity or much more authenticity in our haunted artifacts.
Never getting caught being the first objective, then; "Heaven's what is that?- I've never seen something like that before in my life!" -- "See, I told you the government was following me".
Even a well paid accomplice is bound to talk sometime. (Unless you gain a lock of hair and a contract signed in blood) < Big Grin>.
In this age where you can Google almost anything with your fingertips is making creating our "Art' more difficult each day, but then again you need to be interested enough to navigate
through all the dross to reach the gems or sometimes they just pop up unexpectedly like mana to the bizarre worker and a killjoy for the laymen who feel cheated by the methods simplicity.

"Me a computer, I can't understand has those things work "- "I prefer to just talk to someone in person" - "I don't trust that my information is safe".
"Technology isn't foolproof" - "Cell Phones, don't they have a GPS system in them?" -"What did you see on a magic site again?, I can't believe that, It's certainly out of my budget".
These are some of my outs and it seems to work well for my character. When I hear of someone taking the newest mental miracle into to work and how coworker's were blown away
seeing something so far out of context for what it was designed, it makes me sad. Amateur post's on You-Tube of just the 'magic moment' or see what I can do- makes me cringe.

Being mostly a hermit that lives with a bird on the top of a hill. Most people never see the inside of my living space and my beautiful iMac I use to edit community television
or my many other modern conveniences. It also helps that my performing name is different than my real one. I have mentioned before, I appear very low tech in my outward life.
I still do not own a cell phone. (mostly because I don't want to be 'that available' all the time) I believe it's whats called a "Luddite".
I don't even like to wear a wrist watch because it reminds <'-my character-'> that ; "They shall wear the number on their forearms and their foreheads,
and their shall be no buying, selling or trading without the number". - Rough Translation from The Book Of Revelations.
The hardest time I have performing is when there are friends in the group who know the 'real me' and are shocked to see such a different person in front of them.

To get back on topic, these sound devices seem absolutely delightful. I personally have lived with ADD all my life- and thankfully I was NOT put on medication
when I was younger, which allowed me to think of more than 1 way to 'get out of a box', so to speak. Which for a magician is a 'Platinum Gift'.
I know that something like this small device, if I was not in on the joke - would drive me right through the wall and out of my mind. (….wait I'm there, I mean Here! )
Possibilities seem almost endless in these 'Interesting Times" we live in and our main job is to be on the left side of the bell curve (or is that on top?),
because as technology becomes more affordable and information speeds more readily to the general population they will catch up with the curve-
and well what Arthur C. Clark said……..

I know it's just me -but magic done on iPhones or book tests on iPads is something that my character would never be caught doing.
Too many people would instantly figure it was just a program or app and transfer the mystery from you to the machine. I sell myself and not my props,
but a little device like this makes my inner child smile with wickedly innocent thoughts of provoking calculated madness in others who for one reason or another
have pushed my kindness and generosity over the edge. (What TIME is it really?) It's Evil Tron time!

"What seems magic today could only be cleverly disguised technology.
Use it sparingly and never admit to using such an devious atrocity,
For the simpler we appear to be, will increase10 fold our mystery.
But, if someone harms you intentionally, it really is only fair,
Let 'Evil Tron' be there misery,"

Mmmhahahahahahahaaha is right!

If Aleister Crowley would have just left well enough alone in the late 40's, -trying to evoke 'Artificial or Other Worldly Intelligence' , hmmm…..
Then having some stupid sand fight with a demon right in the middle of all of it which carelessly shut down the signal and circle prematurely.
Those poor Grey Fella's didn't have a chance when they crashed into Nevada and because of that we might not be in the mess we are in now. <Even Bigger Grin>.

Do What Thou Wilt and Keep up the Wonder!

Wow- it is the website that is making my posts seem twice as long as they appear in my text program.
Well I have to get my 50 posts in so I can get to the "SECRETS" Section, ooohhhh <evil smirk>

>>>>>>When I hear of someone taking the newest mental miracle into to work and how coworker's were blown away seeing something so far out of context for what it was designed<<<<<<

"What I mean by this (as an example) is a spirit bell in an office environment that is shown to everyone that happens to walk by. The mystery is diminished because it is out of place and now has become a novelty or a remote amusement.
