Does anyone have Leopard Die, as seen on Hank's new Hotlist? It looks interesting.

Many years ago I made my own die using a small (2.5inch) transparent acrylic cube.

The effect looks very good but has limitations. The main limitations:-

(a) The viewing angle is quite restricted.

(b) Can not be given for examination.

Other than the above limitations the effect looks very magical.

:xmas:
P.S. The Leopard Die, as seen in the photo, shows the spots changing from Green to Yellow & vise-a-versa. It would have been better if the spots changed from Black to White & vise-a-versa.

I take it nobody bought this from Hank Lee yet?

Don't know who was the first to market this effect, but I have one that I bought in the mid-late 1970s. As I recall, like many other effects, it enjoyed a brief popularity after being featured on a magic special on TV (Doug Henning perhaps ??). Although it can be quite startling when properly presented, Ustaad has accurately described its significant limitations.
