Hey fellow bizarre magi,

I recently built a WitchBoard with LIVE control and thought you guys would like to see it.
I've been building electronic programmable WitchBoards for about 10 years now, but this new one uses LIVE control.

You can control every movement of the planchette from a tiny remote in your pocket. This allows you to have the board talk to your spectators in REAL time You can have it spell words, names, phrases, answer yes and no questions, and it can hit every number or letter on the board. It's also completely silent.
You also have the ability to put in custom programs and it can run a hands free program for you too, and you can also switch back and forth from a program and LIVE control at any time. You can also pause a program and save your programs to your computer.
Anyway here is video of it in action that I posted on Facebook hopefully you can open the link:

Outstanding Peter. The workings must be as cool as the effect!
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

Ahhh . . . to be fantastically rich so that I can justify purchasing one of these. It would make a great addition to my séance show. I guess I'll just have to stick with my original method which is letting the spirits move the planchette for me. ;-)

A really great addition to the Witch Board genre. If you ever decide to sell the schematic and/or instructions so I can build one myself, let me know.

Thanks Cheeta.
I'm sorry weepinwil, there won't be any plans or schematics to build this. People wouldn't have access to the microchips and electronics that are custom made to make this piece.

Btw if you guys like things that move by themselves, I also have the new LIVE control feature built into my new Spellbinder Table.

I also thought about building an old Victorian style wooden table version of Spellbinder if there was any interest in it.

Hi Steve,

The original WitchBoard had the following features:
-Full planchette movement programmability
-Rocker motor to make the board shake
-Built in ghost controller (controls lights and appliances to turn on and off etc)
-Custom ATA case included.

However some of the parts needed to build the original motherboard are now obsolete.

So now we offer the New WitchBoard with LIVE control.

The original only allowed you to activate and pause a pre-programmed show. With WitchBoard Live you can now run a program or you can switch to LIVE control and control the planchette on the fly! This opens a whole other realm for the performer. You can also switch back and forth from a program or LIVE control at any time. You can also still pause and un-pause a program at any time.
Also another awesome new feature is the ability to save your programs to your computer to upload and use at a later date. This was never possible before. This way you can have different programs saved for different shows.

However with our new design and the lack of parts to build the original motherboard, there is no rocker motor, but that also allows the underneath of the WitchBoard to be seen or examined. We could still add a rocker motor but this would be an extra cost and would have to be activated by a different pocket remote.

It also does not have the built in ghost controller but this can be purchased separately. Which customers wanted anyway as some people only wanted the WitchBoard with a moving planchette and some people wanted just the ghost controller. So now you have the option.

The ATA case is not included anymore either due to increased costs.

We charge the following for the new board with LIVE control.

WitchBoard LIVE - $1500.00
Available options:
-Ghost Controller -$999.99
-Rocker Motor/remote -$300.00
-Custom ATA case -$275.00
Shipping extra

In order to obtain shipping quotes we would need to know if we are sending it in an ATA case or not as this may affect the shipping costs. We also need you to send us your full mailing address.

I'm quite taken with this incredible piece Peter.

Any chance for a video with the new design?

Most interested in seeing the thickness of the board itself.

thanks!
