So, I was fortunate enough to get to check out Genie by Kevin Parker, if you aren't familiar, the ad copy says,"Imagine that you can enchant a bottle - whether your own or a spectator's - which summons a genie inside it which then moves the bottle around on the table once you uncover the mouth of the bottle to stir him up. You clearly are not touching the bottle or coming in contact with it and the way your hands stay still rules out the use of threads. Must-see video.

No use of thread, loops, ITRs, wires, or anything similar.
Ideal for closeup, street, anywhere there's a surface.
No special environmental or surface requirements.
No magnets.
Extremely easy.
Can use borrowed bottle." The first thing I look at when I get a product is is the ad copy honest? Everything that is listed, is true here, which is nice to have an honest ad copy. The effect is a moving bottle effect, except there are not threads, strings, or magnets, which is great. It says you can do anywhere there is a surface, and makes me think that this could be done in the spectators hands if they set it out like a table. This is effect is pretty cool in my opinion, and the workings although a little simplistic is awesome. I think another big perk is that your hands are literally not touching the bottle when it moves. Don't expect it to just start moving everywhere though, that is not what this is. This will move a bottle a good 6 inches probably max, and you can keep repeating it, you can also make the bottle fall over and roll, which I personally like to do, and if you get the download you can figure out how to do that pretty easily. I think this is a great creation, and very much worth the price for this mini miracle. Great work on this Kevin! Hope to see more clever stuff like this in the future!

RicoGood- I have done this just so far on a table. I imagine you can do it on most surfaces, except maybe a spectators hands, but I am going to try to make just the bottle fall in their hands. There is no reason why it shouldn't work, I just don't think in a persons hands you could do it a lot of times.

Is it impromptu or is there a gimmick?

Just one question, can you do this on the ground rather than a table?
Look behind you...on your left...thats the real world.

MadisonH- There is a gimmick involved, but not like an intense set up. It will hardly take up any space, and it is brought in and out of play so cleanly that I don't even notice bringing it in an out as a problem. It is that clean.
Hackmonkey- Yep! You could do it on the ground!

I just want to know about the timing and control. I like the pause in the beginning but then with repeats does it have to move right after he lets go. Could you pretend to push it with the force of your hand from afar or must you have your hands on either side. Thx!

MagicBrent, yes you could pretend to push it with a hand and have it move. I personally don't like to repeat like that so many times, but it just depends on presentation. I like to do the pretend push, or a blow, and have it move, and then finally results in falling over. The falling over is not taught in the download, but is not hard to do, and if you own the product can probably figure out how to do it. If you can't feel free to PM me!

But like yes you can put pauses in between each move as well! Or have it keep moving a lot rapidly like in the video.

Alan, It's for sure a different method than expected! Like I was a little let down when I first got it, but after I tried it, and it worked, and I got reactions, it was great. I don't have to carry IT around with me anymore, and this is definitely easy to carry and doesn't take up like any pocket space.

Well, my curiosity got the best of me so I purchased this. I have to agree with Alan's and Cody's review/posts. And one nice thing about this is I have never been a huge fan of IT and Kevin's method takes away that fear of "what if it breaks" because this will not break. And Cody is correct that it takes up very little pocket space. I am definitely looking forward to performing this.

This is Kevin, the creator. I want to thank those of you who seen potential in the effect and posted about it. Props to Alan Rorrison who, despite initial impressions, made the gimmick and gave it a try.

Just wanted to give you guys your own personal enchanted bottle to show people or to enchant someone else's bottle.

Hope you guys enjoy the effect and stay tuned to more releases.
