This is a really cool simple app. Basically they go to a drawing website that is completely innocent and you can peek what they are drawing live and what colors. It is perfect for over zoom. You can't use an impression pad or peek but this would be natural. I think it is very cool and easy to use. You can get it here http://www.simpledraw.com.br/admin I will post some video links below which have more information. If you have any questions feel free to ask. The creator is also on facebook and you can ask him. You can do a lot of things. A variation of the picasso routine or you could just do a drawing reveal. It is really good and versatile.

You have to make an account. It is a subscription. Then you can see the subscription options.

Ah. Seems pricey compared to the Picasso Pro app, which is $30.

This one $22 for just 6 months, $50 for a year or $125 for lifetime (which would be lifetime of the app, not the magi's).

Also is there any info on how you sync it so that it knows the spec's phone is connected and you see that drawing rather than someone else's? With Picasso you need to get them to a specific URL. Is that the case here?

Also, since the URL (and name) is listed here, that creates issues of Googleability if anyone tries to look up the app later.

This could certainly be a good app, but all of those seem like concerns to be addressed.

* this is have nothing to do with Picasso in my opinion... is a drawing duplication app

*The nice thing with a subscription is the fact that you can cancel it anytime if you’re not happy with the services!

*There is a safety method that will give you access only to the spectator that are you performing for!

Also, since the URL (and name) is listed here, that creates issues of Googleability if anyone tries to look up the app later.

*Yeah that could be a problem!

This could certainly be a good app, but all of those seem like concerns to be addressed.


Ok so I played with the app a few hours now and all I can say is I love it <3 is awsome!

I think the main difference is you can peek what your spectator draws in real time. I don't think picasso does that.

What is the difference between the draw magic trick app which I have had for a while and this?

I am super excited about this. I purchased it moments ago and already up and running as its so simple to use. This really opens the door to being able to still perform mentalism in this age of social distancing, especially drawing duplications. The fact that it takes place on their own phone is a key selling point.

The one small issue I can see is not an issue with the tool but rather the performer. The performer must have a good reason for needing the spectator to go to a specific address and draw their image rather than just opening any drawing app they may have already on their phone. But it is for the performer to come up with a justification and it does not hurt the tool at all. I have already figured out a way around this which I'm sure anyone who purchases this will immediately see as well.

There is one small bug I've noticed but it's not a deal breaker and I've posted to facebook to let Andre know what I've found.

All in all, I am liking this and can see a potential for use.

Overall I'm very happy with this purchase.

Does anybody really think this will fool your audience?

Only elderly or original people in the rainforest might be surprised by that.
We live in the 21st century and your spectators can count 1 + 1!

Impression Devices are around for a long time now. Why has nobody created this before?
Not because it wasn’t possible before but it is totally nonsense.
There is no layer of deception at all with this.
They directly look at the solution and are 100% right about it.

Even costly Imp devices need a convincing presentation and good management.

This app is ridiculous.

Artin, please can you explain in more detail because your post makes no sense as it is?

Why do you assume it will not fool your audience....... other methods and devices used in similar routines always seem to fool and entertain, from what I have seen.

'Your spectators can count 1 + 1'............. How does that pertain to this effect, what has basic maths to do with how people think this might work?

'Impression devices have been around for a long time'............. Yes, obviously for a good reason.

'There is no layer of deception'........... He is selling a tool, a means to an end. Surely it is the responsibility of each individual performer to create a routine which contains the layers of deception.

'They directly look at the solution'........ I have no idea what this means.

'Costly imp devices need a convincing presentation and good management'.......... Yes, one hundred percent agree with you on this point, but that is down to the individual performer not the tool, method etc, and certainly not the responsibility of the creator of the tool, method etc.

'This app is ridiculous'............ No, I totally disagree.

So... You tell someone to go to a website, and draw a picture. And you'll tell them what it is, or reveal it whichever way you want? Im sorry, but if that's it, then it's really stupid. It would work in real life, because it should be obvious you're not just simply looking at a screen. If you just perform it over camera, then it wouldn't take a genius to figure out that you just see what they've drawn. Im hoping Im wrong.

All the best,
Dan

Dyoung,

If you create a simple routine as you say... yes, it is being obvious...

It's like Rasp said "Surely it is the responsibility of each individual performer to create a routine which contains the layers of deception."

Another important point that you are not considering is the moment when you took the cell phone and saw what it drew? If you set up a well-structured routine, the viewer will feel that you never had access to your cell phone or other devices to view your drawing.

The application works with smartwatches from the galaxy. I am working hard to assist Apple.

Dyoung............ yes, if you performed as you described in your post, that would indeed be a thoroughly crap effect/routine. You are better than that, and I would assume with a little lateral thinking you could make it entertaining. Again, it is a tool at your disposal and totally down to each performer to think of entertaining ways in which to use it.

I still think that the fact that the URL is revealed in this thread is a problem, because if anyone is suspicious, they'll google and see it. Also the .br domain name will make many in other countries at least somewhat suspicious.

And, yes, a clever routine can cover the method, but I fear that many people won't do a clever routine and will telegraph what's happening. But that's the way things are with many many tools.

Admittedly I havent spent any time thinking about a routine, because I personally feel the method is weak. That's not to say it can't be done.
Also, for whatever reason, I initially thought someone was recommending it for online shows. I might just be confused Smile

All the best,
Dan

I believe he means that if you draw something on a computer screen, it doesn't take a huge leap for an audience member to realise that it is very simple for you to get sent what they draw.


Exactly Smooth Criminal, thank you.
