Just saw this on SM's website. I am surprised that they actually show you the gimmick in the trailer. Love the idea, but it's a bit expensive.

I was also very surprised maybe it will be good? (Not holding my breathe though)

Looks like a great tool. I don't think it is that expensive if it does what it says.

I could be wrong, but I don't think some of those effects they show are possible with just the gimmick.

Well, sadly it's the same like with thumbtips. If it fits, you are lucky - If you have different sized fingers or just a different skin color, you're screwed Smile
Sadly I have like the most brightest skin color you could imagine. So even there are different colors of thumbtips, you can always see them on from a mile away. This product doesn't even have different options, so I'm pretty sure this will be nothing for me eiter Smile
For me there are better ways to achieve the same effect Smile

This is something I have been waiting for.
After Prohibition (Charlie Justice) came out I had one problem. I don't like wearing a ring.
I created a skin colored magnet ring I could easily put on and off. I used this (check link) kind of material with a magnet on it.
This is working fine for me for a long time, but this looks much better.

I assume you can easily bend this gimmick to make it a perfect fit for your finger.

I've been waiting for someone to produce this exact gimmick for a long time. I hope the magnet is AS STRONG as a PK ring.

It reminds me of Tarantula. Maybe it was inspired by it.

This gimmick can be bought for years by Hakan Varol.So nothing new.
I think Hakan Varol sells this gimmick for 8 €.
I have this gimmick from Hakan Varol.
The gimmick is very useful for "The Gift" by Angelo Carbone.

You get this gimmick with the routine "Mental 5" by Hakan Varol.
Hakan also sells this little gimmick separately.
You do not have to buy the complete "Mental 5" routine, but you can only buy the gimmick separately.
What is it called?
I don't know.
Contact the Hakan Varol:

At least the video shows you exactly what the item is.

After watching the demo video, I don't think you can bend the gimmick as the shape of the gimmick depends on shape of the magnet. However you might be able to trim the length of the gimmick so as to fit the length on your finger.

I feel that the retail price of $49 is a bit steep.

One might like to checkout - Sanada Gimmick Routines by Toyosane Sanada. It comes with a DVD and requisite props. Unlike the others, this Sanada gimmick is made from special soft and flexible material.

I was thinking of this myself as I sometimes use it this way.

This Sansmind product is smaller and may be more convenient, but I doubt the putting it in place and ditching will be as easy as the Sanada.

I think the Sanada gimmick, for this paricular purpose, will not afford the freedom of movement and the natural flexibility of the hand as much as the Silent Assistant would. I did order the SIlent Assitant today. THis is jsut my initial thought, but will determine the advantages of teh Silent Assitant after I receive it.

I own event horizon but the gimmick fits on your hand differently.

Ha! Yes! I just mentioned this the other day in regards to the new "Control" effect. I have gotten thousands of miles out of my Enigma.

On this particular device, I like how the say they've solved the noise issue, but I wonder about the quality.
