Hi !

I have a full book describing tricks for the Secret Invention (stanyon) but it does not give any detail about what that *** thing is ! It is a transmitter for voice, impulses, vibrations, it is cheap and was made in 1945-1947 ..

Do we have some old iusers of the SI ?

Cheers,
Pierre

Years ago magic dealer Bob Nelson used to peddle a product called the Secret Invention. From you description, it sounds like the same thing.

It was, I believe, a miniature walky-talky sound system that could be used for mindreading stunts and effects like the talking tea kettle. I do believe there are photos of it in some of the old Nelson catalogs.
