Iím very excited about a product that is going to be released at the end of this year. Itís not mine, and I get nothing from it, but Iíve been beta testing it and Iím very excited for its release. Iíll post hints here along the way. Maybe someone can guess it. Hereís the first hint:

Wow. You really build up the hype train for another person's product? And for free?
And "post hints here along the way"? That sounds like a very traditional and planned advertisement strategy. That takes time and effort.
I find it hard to believe that you are not friends with the creator and/or get paid by the creator...

Of course he is. Too bad hardly anybody is transparant about that. Why not just say: "So and so asked me if I would endorse his stuff, which I will do because I like the stuff/him/her". That would be a lot more confidence-inspiring to me than this.
Please check regularly if you are becoming the type of magician Jerry Seinfeld jokes about. (This applies to mentalists as well.)

100% honest and transparent here. Iím one of 9 beta testers. I applied for the beta test program and got accepted. Some people here probably also applied and now know exactly what Iím referring to. If so, donít spill the beans!

I had to pay for the product even though Iím beta testing it. But I did get it at a discount. As a beta tester, itís my job to test the product, packaging, instructions, etc and perform it often to give them feedback and try to find any problems.

Iím just posting on the Cafť for fun and as a way to spread the word in a different way than the usual.

Other than that, I do not know the creator personally. I have never spoken with him until this and I was shocked that I was even selected in the first place. I do not get paid and I have not been asked to do this. When I like a product, I give it my full support.

I think you are a nice guy. I really do. And I think your intentions are good: you want to support this creation and/or creator. But the way in which you do it doesn't feel good to me. I like it when you are sharing valuable info with fellow Cafť members. This just sounds commercial to me.

Madison likes it and he's endorsing it. It's not mutually exclusive to share something he's excited about and be a supporter. Nothing nefarious, guys.

I can't wait to hear more.

Iím slowly releasing information for the fun of it. If you donít want to be involved in the puzzle aspect, check back in a few days and youíll know all there is to know.

If you enjoy the puzzle aspect, hereís hint #2 for you:

This is probably a big enough hint to give it away to some people.

Feel free to make guesses. If anyone guesses correctly, Iíll let you know and answer any and all questions about it.

Hereís some more info for you. It uses technology but the technology is not a secret. It uses technology but itís not a cellphone. It is recognizable but itís not a common object. It is not disguised as something else. Nothing is hidden. All actions that are performed are performed in the open as part of the trick. Itís not self-working, but thereís no sleight of hand. It is a unique plot which has been explored in the past, but itís not a production, vanish, penetration, levitation, teleportation, prediction, restoration, transformation, or telepathy. It is very visual.

Cross-referencing with Fitzkee's list (The Trick Brain), not many types of effects left that are visual. I'm going to guess some type of PK/animation effect.

Good guess Scott but not a PK/animation effect either!

On a separate guessing game, who can guess the creator? Hereís some info on the company:

Theyíve released 2 effects in the past. One was electronic and one was not. Spanish is their primary language.

Maybe Iíve already said too much.
