You can clearly tell the method behind this, his right leg looks stiff and hard at work, the ending hurt as well. It reminded me a lot of Elevator levi with more height . Personally I was not at all impressed with what I saw, I guess for the price you can't beat it though! I'll be picking it up to try it out, I most likely can find the money for this in change under my couch.

You kidding? Looks way more impressive than the F.L.Y, Elevator and all those other levis.

Oh bleh. lol the way levitations are selling, this looks above decent for $20 dollars. This could easily sell for over $100 the way levitations are being sold. Just because the way it looks. Clean with decent height, doesn't look at all like the elevator where it looks like your balancing onto something.

I just hope it doesn't end up all over YouTube, like STS. I mean, come on ...

Exactly, with akirafist posting this over penguin it just horrified me. (penguin and E are the youtube nation)

I hope it gets buried into soon (More products going onto the HP page)

It is just a matter of time before this gets exposed, hopefully we all can get a couple good months out of it before it does.

Blindside785: I hate that guy. He makes a good ham and cheese sandwich on Rye from what I've heard, though.

Some things have survived quite well without TOO much YouTube exposure (eg: WOW by Masuda, BELIEVE, NEVERmind, etc. NEVERmind mainly cause nobody actually has it). I think most of the Ellusionist products seem to be more prone to that than the standard product listing from Hocus Pocus.

You know what...I think this might be safe. This might, just might be a levitation that will be kept safe. It's in book form. Most people don't want to take the time to read. Zero Gravity was kept well safe off youtube. Hopefully Skywalker will follow. The things that are exposed are things caught onto DVD.

Yep just like Ellusionist products. But things with construction are still usuable like Fraud.

Disclaimer: I have no vested interest in the success of Skywalker.

With this being said, I absolutely love the methodology of this levitation. IMO, it's quite practical but as you all know, some will like it and others will not. The levitation won't cost that much to build. You may even have some of the supplies. I have not built mine yet, but it will probably cost about $30. Angles are ridiculously good for a levitation, and for $20, this can't be beat. Highly recommended.

While I've ordered it and it's on the way, I am skeptical with the demo since it's not advertised as 360 degree angle-proof which would appear to be a huge selling point and yet the demo makes it look that way....

If you read the advertisement, I believe it said that the angles were very good. And that they are...not 360 degrees, but I believe you could make it that way...

Can this be done in shorts? how long will the gimmick take to make? will any permanent alterations need to be made to clothes or shoes?

The first shot of it is the most impressive. The rest, not so much. In the first shot it looks as if he gets onto his tip toes and then up into the air, like magic. The other shots look as if he is on one heel like a reverse Balducci. One thing I wonder is, if the gimmick will be hard to wear. Will it make me walk with a limp or hurt my foot as I use or wear it?

Sorry, but I don't feel as if playing 20 questions is necessary. After talking via PM with a few members, I don't believe you will want to walk around in this for too long. Also, I tried levitating last night and had quite the balancing issues. So, I'll see how it is with adequate practice.
