I shot Yigal an email a couple days ago inquiring about the release date on the Spider Watch, this is the reply I received...

There is a possibility that we might come out with the Spider Pen Two before the Spider Watch. Both of the new devices have additional hi-tech functionality never seen before in the marketplace (they are not just original Spider Pens with a different shaped body). These products (as well as several other super-secret items now in development) will completely "raise the bar" in the art of invisible thread and set a new standard of excellence for years to come. And both will be for sale this year…


So... Spider Pen Two, Spider Watch, and a couple of super-secret items from Mesika to be released in '07... I'm just speculating here but I'm imagining the new high tech functionality he's referencing would be something along the lines of retraction speed regulation (i.e. a control knob which would vary the speed the motor retracts the IT, enabling the user to vary the speed which an item levitates or animates). I'm sure he's thrown in a couple more innovations too, but I'm pretty confident Spider Pen Two will have this functionality in some way, shape, or form as will the Spider Watch.

Hopefully these are out soon! And man Paisa that just sucks...I'm prayin for ya! Back up your magic onto a harddrive, that's what I am going to do just in case. If you have an older ipod you could even use that. Back on topic, the watch has always been something I think a lot of people thought about, if he can make it and make it well, I think there is a lot of potential there.

Spider watch? Is that not the same as a small ITR up the sleeve?

Hopefully the quality of a Spider watch will be more up to date than the Spider Pen 1 as I'm sure it will look funny if we are wearing watches that look like they just came out of a box of cocoa puffs. :-P I love the ideas, just hope for the money he uses better materials as I'm sure it would get better reviews and sell.

From what Yigal was quoted as saying back in April/May (seen it somewhere), both of these where supposed to be October releases (or atleast he was shooting for an Oct release), and Spiderpen 2 was pretty much almost finished at that time. Wonder whats taking him, and hopefully SP2 is made of better materials this time around, as it deserves better then that cheap thin plastic it is made of.

Check out my second post in the below linked discussion. It was made in 2003.

I got my own and I made a couple for other magicians to test out. They liked it but had the same issues I had and it's why I put it on hold because I wasn't able to work out the power issue. The battery would die down too fast. I experimented with an external power supply (Larger battery on a wire connected to the watch or a row of smaller batteries on the band of the watch). But I didn't like the fact that it wasn't all self contained. I wanted to just put the watch on like any normal watch and be ready to use it.

But because it uses a tiny watch battery it works great for a while but then the battery would get weaker and the tension would change. So I never liked that and to be honest I'm not all that knowledgeable in that kind of thing.

On the other hand I'm sure many new technology's have come out in that area since 2003. So we'll see if Yigal was able to work those issues out. If he did I'll buy one.
