But I can be wrong and what I saw could be not a part involved in the trick Smile

At 1:23 what you are seeing is the spectators open hand holding the coin (on the left hand side of the screen). Or am I missing something?




You are missing the focal point,see again Smile


I couldn't see anything until I watched the vid in high def on youtube. Wasn't visible on the dealer website. And also, yikes - completely new method? unless there's a mexican jumping bean that's been trained to sense the requisite thing, I don't get how it's completely new...

Sounds like the only new thing is the marketing.

Perhaps the 'new' method is meaning this principle of knowing or the gimmick used has now been adapted to a classic utility device - has not been used in that way before so for that reason he is claiming it as being new?

Well, I'm glad I didn't buy it. I would have opened the package, seen the thing and thrown it against the wall.

Just to be clear - it's entirely possible that Rasmus has created a very useful and nifty item here - I just personally don't like those types of gimmicks. That's all I meant... sorry for the negativity, Rasmus.

I have to agree.
Between not having great luck with that particular utility and the fact that Penguin still doesn't have any form of ETA I'm considering cancelling my pre-order... Smile

Interesting. They told me via chat they have no ETA for getting it in.
Is that all you ordered, or possible your order got partially shipped?

I have never done any which hand effect but have been wanting to do this for a MUCH stronger effect in the spectator's eyes.

It's pretty clear what I'm getting. I trust that Rasmus has made this work reliably. I tried something like this years ago and couldn't do anything like shown in the video. Normally, I'd wait for a more independent review before ordering but having this perfected is easily worth the small price and I trust this will be what I am expecting.

Unfortunately the spectator or friends in the group will see the gimmick as they will be trying to work out how your doing it and why you have to keep 'pointing' at the spectators hands all the time and not just ask questions without pointing (not thinking like a magician, but like any normal educated person in the real world if they seen this performed)



I don't think that's true . Definite magician thnking. Surely you must know just how much goes unnoticed when performing?

Got mine. Nice kit. The balls are nice quality if you like that effect. I've never liked that effect so I'll likely stick to the which hand plot. Will obviously take some practice to develop the necessary feel. I've only played with it briefly so the verdict is still out, but thus far I still like my Scan 3D better. Allows for a cleaner handling with nothing to hide, but for the price, X-ray gets the job done and is certainly much cheaper. So it just depends on personal preference. The underlying theory is the same for both. Scan is just a high tech method while X Ray is a low tech mechanical method. Scan allows for empty hands with nothing to hide. X Ray does not.

I wrote in another thread that Charles Gauci is one of the most ripped off creator in recent times. And I still stand by that unless evidence to the contrary shows up quite convincingly. IMHO, it looks like the basic principle and both the routines as a set belong to Charles Gauci and I only hope that proper crediting has been done, at the least. I will not be buying it until this is clarified.
There is no better freedom than choice and no better choice than freedom.

Received mine and love it, just did it about 5 times with my wife, and worked 100% of the time, is certainly cheaper than other versions but does the job well, for those that have this don't worry about the gimmick, don't run when no one chasing you, nothing to fear, besides concentrate on your presentation is the key here! But as I said does th job 100% of the time, very pleased
