What I am saying is don't BS yourself,thinking all laymen don't get things!
And,if someone makes a comment,be it wrong or right about an effect,the effect is ruined!
Like doing a card effect,a spec says I know how that was done,and they have no clue...effect still does not carry as well!

I'm glad you were AMUSED ! LOL

Smoking device can be a way to enhance the effect to make it more visial. The visialiaztion sometimes keep people memorize the maigic moment for long long time. It is not about the secret how the smoke generate. It is the moment cause magic result to last long. Even some may know how you so it or may later try to figure it out. But that moment they see the effect which ending with somke will be one of good memory through the the life.

Imaging walk on street, use your TT to vanish one lighting cigerate, before you reveal the hand to show empty, make some smoke out , squeze the hand, pretend to be little pain on your face because it burn your hand. Then you show the hand and cigerate is gone. I believe by doing this it is far more powerful than just make thing disappear.
People see lots of magic effect, but in the end how much they will remember? If doing right with smoke device, it will creat a magic memory last long long time.

That certainly sounds true, but how does it apply to this thread? Is this an effect that is too obvious? Or is it just like every other magic effect in that laymen, in fact, do sometimes "get things." Which is true with EVERYTHING in magic.

Using smoke will be like using IT. Spinning cards around your body and other antics lead people to look for "the string". Doesn't help that toy stores sell IT and spinning cards. Yet, using IT/IET can make miracles happen that leave them clueless and amazed.

Same can apply to using smoke. Use it judiciously, like IT, and it can be a powerful tool.

Hey guys,

Bizzaro just sent a great, in depth, tear-down of Vapr if you wanted to see it a little closer from a more pronounced, erhem, skeptic.

This look really good now. Seeing it reviewed like that made me feel a lot better about preordering. I am quite excited about this now.

I do like the idea of smoke coming from an artifact/prop...and,not off person!

I know Bizzaro pointed out that the noisy bit goes under the arm, but.... was I alone in thinking it was, well, a bit noisy?

I actually smelled bacon cooking. But that was me, I was sweating. Threw me for a loop at first.

Of course he's mic'd up, so that would amplify things a touch. But I didn't hear anything.

Fair enough. He was demonstrating the underarm unit activation at the time. At any rate, the whole set up looks promising. I will selfishly wait for reviews. Smile

Ha, ha, ha!

I love eating at The Magic Café!
Jack Straw from Wichita, cut his buddy down
And dug for him a shallow grave, and laid his body down
Half a mile from Tucson, by the morning light
One man gone and another to go, my old buddy you're moving much too slow
We can share the women, we can share the wine

He was holding it directly in front of his lapel mic. This will be silent when in actual use I'm sure.

Yup, the unit was very close to the mic. But the smoke doesn't seem as.. cloudy as in the trailer..
