Yes to all of you are wondering. The visual of the time rewinds backwards happened on the magician phone but whatever time and minutes spectator called out, changes on their phone. So you can have 100 spectators watching this and when time changed, every single one can bring out their time to check and it changes to that exact min.


This is complete and utter BS. Changes? I think not.

I don’t remember Alain Nu’s Psycho-Chronetic getting this much flack.

I don't think the description for this is inaccurate or fabricated. Granted, the description should have noted that this is what the audience experiences, but I feel that for all intent and purposes that is nitpicking.

If the perceived effect is as described and the thing works in a way that is reliable and practical, I really don't see an issue here.

I'm sure we all know that magic isn't real right? Smile Same applies to when you say the card changes in the spectators hand and the card was switched before hand. Anyway, it's fine if you don't like it. I have no problem with that.

I've tried my best to help answer out questions to everyone here, so if you have anything, feel free to message me anytime. Thanks guys!

This is great little app with many possibilities, if you just apply some imagination.
I will mention that in the demo using the classic match/matchbook effect, there’s a logical flaw that I’d notice as a spectator, that being that the match should’ve reappeared in the matchbook unscorched, if time reversed to before it was torn out (unless I missed something and the match was lit before being torn from the matchbook, in which case all is well). Smile
It's all in the reflexes.

[Not only that, spectator can bring out their phone and finds that their time is now rewinds back too!]

That is just not true. Why not make it clear at the start that it will be perceived from the specs point of view, for a limited time only, that their phones have also gone back in time. It doesn’t lessen the effect but makes it clear of its limitations before purchase.


Thanks pegasus Smile

The illusion of traveling back in time isn't for a limited time ... it is permanent. From the spectator's point of view every single clock in the world is now x minutes in the past. It doesn't switch back in 10 minutes or ever. It is permanently back in time. This is genius.

I'm not trying to be argumentative (not that I am opposed to doing so at times) but I don't know if we are describing the same perceived effect. It may be the language barrier ... you Brits have really slaughtered the American language.

Why are you saying for a limited time only? Are you saying the perception is that the time switches back after the effect or did you mean to say you are limited in going back only 10 minutes?

I think your post may have read wrong. It is not permanent. On your phone it may be back in time but a quick glance at their phone will prove otherwise. so not every single clock...it is amazing feat, but they will more than likely want to verify or others in the group will look at watches and phones. Maybe that is the misunderstanding??

The illusion of back in time is on your phone for that instant and is not verifiable as that would be real magic

The quick glance at their phone is what sells this effect. Every single clock and phone in the world will match the perceived "new" time on your phone. The initial time you show on your phone before you go back in time is already the number of minutes ahead that matches the number they told you. You simply create the illusion of the clock turning back in time. All it really does is go back to the real time.

If this post gives too much away mods, pull it. I believe it was already explained earlier in this thread.

Yes, Pegasus the spectator's phone clocks will all have changed. You do know how watches and clocks work, yes? They change regularly... I mean like every second som of them.

;) I am joking - I know you know how they work.


Im still not sure I get it though. I'm sure it's great though.

It's PsychoChronetic but as an app. I can't decide if it's better or worse than Alain's version.

I closed my first ever stage show with PsychoChronetic and went over amazingly. Wonderful reactions when a whole room of people can look at whatever time piece they have and feel like time has turned backwards by a named amount.

The app can over clock the current time with an input right in front of them. Ex: Real time is 1:00. You can tap "2" (invisible input) to wake up the phone and it will shoe 1:02 thus, you can activate the "rewind" and it will count back 2 mins back to the real time which everyone can then check.

Hope this clears up a bit. Thanks.

LOL "you Brits" have slaughtered the "American" language. I think someone needs a lesson on where the English language originates (hint: it's not America!)!

On topic though, the app is very nice. A good idea and put together by one of the best magic app developers. Well done Patrick and Marc.
