Any tips on battery life? I charged mine up when I got it. Then went to use it a few days later and it was dead. So charged it again. Then got to the gig and tested before I approached someone. Then started the routine and it wouldn't buzz for either hand. I took a punt and just guessed and got it wrong. Looked like a chump. Then moved on to something else and tried to save face. It's not the most convenient design for switching on and off discreetly so I want to know how other people Are handling it? I want to use it early on in my show but now I'm worried I can't trust it. Unless mine is faulty?

It sounds like you may have a faulty set. Contact the dealer you bought it from or the manufacturer.


You have discovered the reason I don't usually use electronics, and if I do, I have an out/alternative method or presentation if they fail (I learned the hard way).

I will PM you an out, so you an always get out of this type of effect.
It is not a repeatable out, so you do it once and move on.

That was my concern, what if it becomes 'faulty' and doesn't work correctly mid performance, I mean you could style it out but you need to know the reliability of the product when you are investing.

Why the hell chess pieces?! There are great devieces around aloowing for a multitude of objects.. where (when not framed in a stage show) you will find the possibility to incorporate chess pieces naturally? That is a pointless product..

Can this be done with particular types of coins or are you restricted to the chess pieces?

It's a set - you're restricted to the chess piece supplied.

You can always tell the workers from the armchair people by post like these. I agree 100% with you Tony about electronics in magic or mentalism.

Really wish I could see a pic of the device on the body. I live in Hawaii and literally never wear long pants or long sleeves. I am looking at this to use with Psychic Chess 2.0 by Brian Watson. I want to use one of the pieces as a marker and then or before do the put a color behind your back and I guess which one followed by which hand to show off my steps ahead skills. Is there anyway someone could PM me a pic so I can see if I can make it work with my Hawaii attire?
Thanks

Thanks Sponge. I tried that but couldn't really see. Would like to know how small it is so I can tell if I can find a way to cover it up on my wrist in my short sleeves that wont give it away.

The fact that you watched the demo and didn't notice it should tell you what you need to know.

It's a thin band, looks like a bracelet if you wear it right.

I guess I don't get it. I bought this and I'm extremely disappointed unless someone can tell me what I'm understanding wrong. I've googled it, checked ALL the reviews, scoured the forums, yet I can't find a single person stating what seems an OBVIOUS problem for me - this thing is LOUD AS HELL. I mean really, WTF? I'm afraid to even TRY it on my family first because unless I have a radio cranked on there is NO WAY they're not going to hear the vibration when I get close to their hand. It's a continual LOUD buzz. Is mine defective or something? Is it not supposed to be continuous? I'm doubting it's supposed to be any quieter because you can even hear it buzz in the tutorial when Adam turns it on and it moves around. I mean seriously, do you mean to tell me NO ONE out there has gotten caught in that NONE of your specs has said "What's that sound?" EACH time you're adjusting them? Does everyone out there have deaf spectators? What am I missing? NOWHERE does it say this has to be done in noisy environments. I'm seriously confused and it seems like everyone out there has lost their minds if they haven't encountered this, unless like I said, something's wrong with mine though it doesn't seem there can be. The ONLY thing wrong is it operates completely backwards from what Adam teaches - the piece blinks when turning OFF and holds solid when turning ON, rather than the other way around. So between this and the fact that not a single person has complained about how loud the obvious vibrating sound is for a HUNDRED dollars makes me think I must be in the f@&$%?g Twilight Zone. Help! Someone PLEASE speak to this?!
