Can this be performed at any smooth table or counter, i.e in a coffee shop or bar, with zero chance of the method being visible or obvious?

Plz see my review on previous page. For a quick answer I’d love to say yes. However, like many things in our arsenal, that would be like saying should a TT be visible or obvious? If you watch the video and the method isn’t visible or obvious, then this if for you.

Genie by Kevin Parker


​Effect: When you uncover the mouth of a bottle, the bottle starts moving as if you stirred up a genie inside.

​Review: I just had a chance to view Genie by Kevin Parker. Now, I've always had a love-hate relationship with PK effects. As a mentalist, I love that the visual aspect PK effects bring to the table, but I've never been a fan of the setup involved (i.e. ITR, loops, etc.). Genie eliminates the thread and doesn't require magnets, which is historically what's been necessary. When I got to the explanation portion of the tutorial, I smiled. Having been around a while, it's rare for me to run across a method I'm not familiar with, but this was entirely new to me. Admittedly, I watched the trailer a few times trying to guess at the method, but I was clueless.

Genie does exactly what it clams - you'll be able to move a bottle several inches while your spectator looks on. I really like the gimmick and it's something you can easily obtain/carry with you. Definitely doesn't take up a lot of space and, if handled properly, is completely undetectable.

If you are into PK effects, this is definitely worth a look. If you're not and are looking for a place to start, this is also worth getting. At $7.50 for the download, I honestly feel that it's priced low. I've gotten a lot less for a lot more.

I wouldn't say angles are much of a concern either. Yes, there's a gimmick in play, but given the properties of the gimmick (can't say much more without revealing the method), I wouldn't quite classify Genie as angle-sensitive.

Overall, I came away really impressed with Genie. Yes, I liked the method, but what I appreciated even more is how it sparked my creativity and made me look at PK effects in a new light.

Highly recommended.
