I was quoting Loki. He said they had a transmitter that blocked out the sound of the drive in.

No. It isn't.

You must not understand what he is saying. They had an FM transmitter that they could select the frequency on. They will broadcast over any unused frequency. You will not be able to override the broadcast stations but you will be able to interfere with the FM transmission the drive-in theater is sending out.

Neither one is illegal unless it exceeds a certain distance. I think it's about the length of a footbal field.

A lot of the cheap FM transmitters let you select from a couple different frequencies. Try it yourself. Pull out your old Mr. Microphone and head on over to the drive-in.

Dear friends,
Thanks for your interest in our new upcoming release.
Radio active will be available in 2-3 weeks.
The retail price will be $49.99 and it comes with a custom manufactured gimmick and a DVD.
Inside the DVD we also provide professionally made audio files of Radio Dj's announcing card selections and esp selections.
We also provide some great sounds for seances.
Best regards,
Titanas


So the promo isn't quite correct when it says: 'think of ANY song'

From your quote, it sounds more like: 'choose a song from THIS list'.

No disrespect meant, of course, but think of ANY song is quite different from choose from 'THIS list of x songs'.

And there's nothing in the demo which suggests a pre-described list -- quite the opposite in fact.

This looks like a great effect...you had me fooled until I concluded the demo missed out the kinda important 'restricted choice' thing.

If I'm wrong, please slap me down. I was thinking of 'Meat is murder', by The Smiths by the way. Would that have been possible if I were your impromptu demo dolly?

Cheers, Steve

Dear Steve,
What you saw in the full performance video is exactly what happened, we didn't hide anything and that was a free selection without cards involved.
Although in the DVD we cover more ways of selecting a song, some of them are using cards but not in that case.
To reply to you if I was performing the effect for you "meat is murder" would play Smile
What got you confused was probably what I said about the radio dj's card revelatiion or esp revelation that this is obviously a force.
Best regards,

So you could play any song called for without any prior knowledge of what song they are going to name? That's what it seems like you're describing

Then I think you have a miracle on your hands.

I, for one, will wait for a few reviews. Not that I doubt you, I've just been burned in the past. Smile

Titanas, do the full performance as on thsi video, would you require an accomplice, or is this always done with no assistance?

Dear Kam,
I can't go into too much specific detail just yet (we must protect the intellectual property)
but I can say that the DVD comes with many different ways to perform the effect,
some which can be performed solo, and some which can be performed with a bit of extra help,
but not in an obvious way. Your help doesn't even have to be there!

Best regards,
Titanas

I am one of the very privileged people to have discussed Radioactive at great length with Titanas and have a full understanding of how this works.

In regards to the video in question, it is simple. The spectator can name literally any song (I always enjoy it more when it is a really obscure song) and that song will play. No fishing, no pre-show, no restrictions on what they can choose.

It really is THAT clean.

Thanks,
Mark

How many predetermined songs are available to be played or picked from if performed with no helper?

I think the concept of having any song at the ready is fascinating. I look forward to it.

And James, the device I used is like DD said. It is simple.

This one seems to take over broadcast stations, so I have never seen anything like that.
It is surely powerful.

And for the price, I would try it.
Even if to just play any song I want at any time, anywhere. That alone is worth some coin. Smile

I think I replied more than I should, lets keep some mystery.
I am sure everybody's questions will be replied when the item hits the market.
From now I won't be replying to any more questions that have to do with the method to protect the intellectual property.
it is always amazes me how serious can people be for magic tricks, a few posts before I ve been accused that I wanted to deceive
even though I was openly replying questions. Like I would ever put my reputation on jeopardy just to get a few more sales.

Just trying to make informed decisions. To many times the hype is misleading. I think this is a valid question How many predetermined songs are available to be played or picked from if performed with no helper?
Why would you want to avoid this question? It is a fair question.

Dear Magicbyswh,
It is not a simple question but I ll try to reply the best I can.
Depending to which SOLO version you chose from the DVD it can be 1 to hundreds.
Just to remove some mystery, you can go to someone with a big pack of business cards with different songs
written on the cards and he can chose any card without any force and that song will play.
This is one of the things you can do. I still prefer the no cards version.

I love this idea and a few years ago I would have jumped right on it. My problem with it now is who carries around a radio anymore? It seems to me that outside of the car most people are listening to MP3s players or internet radio. Even in my car I listen to sattelite, or have paired my phone to my car radio via Bluetooth to listen to my favorite MP3s or internet radio. My phone won't even tune FM frequencies. And I can't remember the last time I listened to FM

I hope that I am wrong but radio frequencies for music and news seems to be on its last leg. I think Titanas has been reasonably forthcoming and I hope it does well for him but for me, I just don't know of anyone listening to FM or AM its all Pandora our something similar.

Tatanas I hope you do some querys before outlaying too much capital in manufacturing this. At least here in the USA I am not sure how many opportunities we magicians would have to perform this.

Im not trying to be negative just realistic. I hope you understand I am just trying to voice my concern before you spend a bunch on marketing and manufacturing.

Dear Dannicus,
Thank you for your post. You have some really valid points.
Here is how I overcome some of these issues that you 've mentioned.
Performing this effect for that long, I could always use someone with an android phones, 90% of the android phones have an FM radio on them.
I don't really care if they ever use the radio in their real life as in my patter I explain that I believe I discovered a glitch in our system and this glitch activates
thru FM radio frequencies. Also appart from the android market, there are many people that use radio in their car and its my favorite effect to perfrom for taxi drivers Smile
There are also many coffee shops around the world that play radio or at least they have a radio device.

Titanas
