Angelo,

Thanks for the video links.

Both effects look really good.

I will take that as a challenge!

My brother in law lives in Norway so it may be just a little while before I get the goods.

Here is some insider info for those in Japan that want to buy the 2011 Tenyo line now - this is what I bought:

Most of the cards supplied with Tenyo tricks are however a bit smaller then POKER size, it says BRIDGE size on the box (probably because Japanese people have rather small hands), so (perhaps) you'll need a BRIDGE Bicycle box Smile


I used to use bridge cards because I found them easier to palm (and its what I started with as a kid.)

You can get Bridge bicycle decks inexpensively from most magic supply houses.

Ghost lamp didn't do much for me.

4D surprise is a nice optical illusion though. Cant imagine performing with it but it would be a fun little desk curio

Ghost Lamp (the invention of bar magic legend Scotty York) I think is a very cool effect. Allows for some nice interaction between the magician and spectator. This was a prized item in the Ken Brooke magic line for many years. The idea of cutting the invisible power line with a pair scissors I believe was from Fred Kaps (another legend). Assuming the quality is good I look forward to obtaining one of these for $40 versus $200 for the original version. I have Scotty's book where he details how to make this, it is no easy feat to make one well from scratch (I eventually gave up).

Cheers,

John

I made a Scotty York Lamp following his instructions in "For Your Eyes Only". Acquiring all the materials and completing the construction were time consuming and sometimes frustrating tasks, but I got it done. After finishing, I realized that $200, or whatever he was charging at the time to make one, was a bargain.

I haven't bought a Tenyo toy since What's Next, but I'd love to see one of their Ghost Lamps.

I think if the bill was weighted at the bottom more it would improve how it looks especially when the hands revolve around it. I came up with the same idea years ago but did nothing with it.

Yes I have think the same, a longer stem would remove the impression that the bill is simply glued to the thumb Smile Or just add the same style of gimmick used in Ballerina hank for more flexibility. A few centimeters would be enough to make a difference.

it's really strange that they product a trick obvious like that anyway ...
I don't understand how can they believe that anyone would find this interesting.
Very very strange.

I wasn't impressed with the bill, reminded me of the helicopter card which I thought was silly.

I liked the box at the end. Im pretty sure I know exactly when and approximately where the item is coming out... but I could be wrong as I have a competing theory as well.

In either case, I don't know *how* it comes out. I found the hand off to the spectator to examine the box afterward very convincing.

So you never answer Cyberqat - You don't like "Ghost Lamp" because...

I agree with others here who say that $40 is a pretty cool deal considering the complication of assembling one of these gimmicks.

I don't like the illusion.

I can immediately imagine how I would build one and it seems to me that anyone else with any kind of grasp of science would too.

IMHO There is a problem with technically based magic in today's world in that common use technology has become far more impressive and magical then the fairly simple technologies we generally employ.

And when we employ more advanced technologies (such as some to the latest RF tag based mentalist props and mini remote controls and servos) I find myself thinking "that's not really magic... its a tech demo."

The strongest technical tricks, IMHO are those that defy the man on the street's experiences.

There was a time when a light bulb that lit without screwing into a socket was such a thing. But these days, with laser pointers in a pen on sale at the hardware store check-out counter, its not much of a feat.
