I have a avoided a routine using Dlites.
I work in a magic shop some on the side and way too many people know of these.
They sell them to everyone at the mall.

Instead of trying to use a routine. I use them in small bits added in to other routines.

What would really be cool is if the light was produced and you go about your routine and you finish it off by letting go of the light and it floats away.
Now that's cool!

What I often see is that Dlite routines lack any sense of logic or routining at all. In many cases they become a guy or gal standing up there showing off. The stuff becomes redundant too fast and after 2 or 3 vanishes, it is the same exact thing again.

What we should learn to do is to use the Dlite as a simple gimmick that allows us to create a much more elaborate magical routine or experience.

If we can take the dlite and start to think of just what it really is in the minds of the audience, we can start to create some more intersting ideas.

To an audience, it appears as a manipulation of a light source of some sort. If we think this way, then why not allow this light to start from some place or some object that people in the audience can relate to.

Once we relate this to soemthing that is common for them, it stops becoming a magical prop and they can get into more. For example, this light could come from a light bulb.

Maybe the magician comes home from a long day and this lamp sits on his table. He falls asleep on the chair next to him and truns the light off. Just as he doses off the light comes back on. He unscrews the light bulb and polaces on table and falls asleep again. The blub lights up. The routine then becomes one of him fighting this light that keeps returning. He takes the light from the bulb and places in pocket only to have his pockets light up.

This fight ends up with him realizing that the light was his light of creativity and so he ends up letting it shine for the world to see.

This is just an example of how you could create a dlite routine but to make it into something much more entertaining that gives more to the audience.

In McBride's routine, he uses the presentation of how the lights are "ideas" and how he collects them. In the end, he puts all of the produced lights in a book, a closes it.

I always liked the idea of stealing the light from a laser pointer. I never developed this idea, however.

That is a perfect example of how a thought out routine can be much more interesting for an audience if you start thinking creatively with it.
