Can anybody tell me about the history of this? I bought it used years ago. It had no instructions, but I was shown how it works. The method is quite ingenious an no electronics or external gimmicks are used, but after performing the board can be passed out for close examination with NO chance of the method being discovered.
The board has a battery, pushbutton switch and a small bulb. The switch operates the bulb, but the bulb can be made to light at will if the board is held in the palm of your hand.
Many spectators will think you are secretly pushing a hidden button, or something, but when the board is passed out they will not discover anything.
I was told it was a Syl Reilly product, but I can't find out anything about when it was made or how it sold, etc.
Any background info would be appreciated.

Hi Rac

It's just a modified version of Ghost in the Machine, a Lebanon Circle product from 2004 which used a buzzer instead of a light. The plans and routine are still available as part of The Compendium of Bizarre Magic which is also available on the Lebanon Circle site.

I believe this was listed in Ireland's (Magic Inc.?) catalog a long time ago...?
