Patrick Redford, Ran Pink and Colin McLoud were sitting outside the casino pub at the 2010 MindVention when they first saw OHM presented. I used a dry-erase pen to make a dot on the table and asked Patrick to simply think of a card (there were no cards present before, during or after the effect). With my back turned, I asked him to press his thought onto the dot. I then turned around, wiped the dot off and told him the card he was thinking of. Here is what Colin had to say:

"if you're not using a confederate then that is absolutely incredible and I have no idea how you're doing that! What, no confederate ... I'm off for a cry."


Here are just a few other presentation possibilities:
• Chair Test: three participants each secretly choose one of three items; performer knows who chose what (Patrick’s Idea.)
• PK-Taste: with 6 BORROWED cups.
• Thought Projection: The Performer thinks of a card that a spectator is able to see projected onto a blank card; the spectator then projects her own thought onto another blank card for the performer to see.
• Living or Dead: Participant unerringly divides a stack of photographs into survivors and victims.
• Force a single object out of any number of objects on a table (photos, cards, coins, etc)
• PK-Smell, with IMAGINARY flowers.

And here are the first two demo videos (with more to come):

Genuinely when I saw this I couldn't fathom it.

Why made it worse was, when I was shown how it worked, I still couldn't fathom it.

In the right hands, this is deadly!!

That was almost two years ago. I can only imagine what he's done with it since then.

I watched Christopher perform this twice at that Mindvention and both times I was left scratching my head wondering, "What just happened???".

It turns out that the "how" is just as amazing as the "what" Smile

I'm not sure how much more I should say, except that Christopher has such a brilliant mind and I'm amazed with the effects that are possible with Ohm.

A must buy.
While watching "Scrying Out Loud" I was reminded of "Liquify", which could be considered to be combined with OHM.

I just looked it up and I remember it now. I think you are correct, it will blend well with OHM. The method I used to cause the symbol to appear on the paper when it is immersed in water is quite old. I first saw it described by Harry Stanley in"MAGIC OF THE MIND", published in 1960. It is fully in the public domain now as is evident from this: http://www.parentsconnect.com/do/writing_on_wall.jhtml

Great to see that Christopher is working hard to finally release this gem!

I have seen it grow and change many times and this has been in the works for certainly a few years to my knowledge. It is not just a single effect but a way to create multiple effects, moments and ideas. A veritable system as it were.

From what I have seen over the years and the insider knowledge that I have on OHM I would say this is set to become Christopher's flagship creation to date....very very exciting stuff here folks.

Thanks for that Matt. More than a few features of this system are a direct result of your insightful comments and creative input. Cheers.

As I'm sitting here in Singapore and catching up on what I missed while taking a 23 hour trip through time and space from Detroit. I'm catching up on a few things.

OHM is crazy cool. That is an understatment. I was sitting with Colin when Christopher hit us with this amazing...well...OHM.

I've had the pleasure to play for the last year or so with this fancy thing. The reach of voice that Christopher has dipped into with this is astounding.

Some clarification is needed about set up and handling the sensors:

When working with several sensors, they are placed into, or under, locations of your choice. Once placed, you power them on but they will not sense and transmit until you remotely activate them. All of the sensors are configured to the one activator you receive in the kit. You can get another activator and then configure specific sensors to be activated by a specific activator.
