E is teasing this on their social...this was the trick that had everyone talking at Magic Live.

You have to hunt down the link on their website...but to save you the trouble, here you go:

Sorry E if that spoils the fun...but looks to be a very cool effect.

The accent and the screams made it difficult to understand the dialog, so I don't know what it was I was looking at. Apparently it's amazing, though.

Clever use of a d’lite.

I have no idea what I just watched. Anytime there’s a “pre-order now and save $” sale, that translates to “reviews are going to be bad when this comes out so figure out a way to entice suckers to pre-order”. Ho, ho, ho!

Took watching it three times before I understood what the effect even was. Seems like an odd way to promo it.

It's not a D-lite.

What is it, the vanishing of the top of a phone?

Surprised by E's lack of ad copy for this "How to get hot chicks to film you!"

It's a pre-order mate. We didn't start this thread. More details will be released when the trailer drops.

This is for those 'in the know' from Magic LIVE who have been begging us to release this early.

Ok, I’ll change my statement to ‘can achieve the same with a d’lite

I've heard about this thing before it had a name from other magicians that have hung out with Tobias. From what I heard, this thing absolutely blew every person that saw the effect in person away so the reactions in the trailer would appear to be accurate to real world reactions.

There's clips of some very big names being very impressed from the convention. It's not really my style but I'm still going to get my hands on it and play with it.

If I understand the effect correctly, the effect is that you hand them your phone to video you vanishing their phone. Then they realize that the phone they believed to be yours is actually their phone.

Sounds like if you could pull it off it would be mind blowing. However, I cannot imagine somebody handing me my own phone and not noticing that it is mine.

I took the bait and pre-ordered. I'm a fan of TD and appreciate his creativity. I do, however, have the same concern as you. That said, as someone commented on social, it's kind of like the quarter on shoulder. On video...not too convincing but in person should fly by like other bold moves.

I'm more interested in what's going on through the screen with the vanish. Maybe some AR thing?

Also, just speculating but perhaps you don't have to present it the way Tobias does (with the specs phone in their hand the whole time)?

Surely if their phone had a cover on especially a flip cover ,the spectator would realise straight away that it is their phone

I think you've got it right. I suppose it helps if it's dark, and the spectator is drunk.

They don't. As you can see in the demo, their phone is white and hold - the gimmick is black and they STILL don't notice.

Wait for the full trailer - any colour phone, any case - THEY NEVER REALISE.
