I've had the same idea, just have not found a way to make it happen.
Hope you pick up where I left off, looking foward to the demo Smile.

Probably an earplug.

Hi Harv,

I learned my lesson. The earplug (used in Alida to float a card)was too way out for magicdom in general. Plus, the spectator could not look under or lift the card. That was the biggest fault - the spectator could not look at THEIR whim.

One of my personal targets when creating Cosmosis: The Original Floating Match, way back in 1986, was that the spectator be able to "take the floating match out of the air."

Since that time, I've wanted to do the same thing with larger objects. Cards specifically - because I love card magic.

20 years later, the solution is at hand. The spectator may grab the floating card and look under it. They find nothing attached to the card. They find nothing under it. It's performable with most brands of playing card, is instanty repeatable and can be performed surrounded. If you're the kind of performer who is happy to leave home with a deck or two in his pockets, then you will be set to perform this new effect at any time. It is SO practical it's scary.


Full info is now available at http://www.wowbound.com
VIDEO DEMO AVAILABLE at wowbound.com (as appearing in Volume 1 of REEL MAGIC QUARTERLY)


No earplugs with the new effect, promise.

Hi guys,

Thanks for your interest.

I will try and refrain from any more comments because this will not be out for a little while. We cannot release the method until all the legals are sorted.

Quite seriously, the Floating Card application is just the tip of the iceberg. This will revolutionise micro-levitation. I know that's bold and brassy to say, but I've looked for this for 20 years, as have others.

A major problem with non-thread leviation has been solved, practically. And, it's so simple and "just right" that people will wonder "how can THAT have taken 20 years?"

Well, it takes 20 years because you examine every possible avenue. Every angle. Over and over until little variations mutate into fully fledged ideas and you go off on a new direction. 20 years later you "see" something new - fully formed - in your head. It's the result of all of those years churning the possibilities over and over in the mind. And, it ends up being so simple, direct and "right" you kick yourself.

So, anyway, enough of my ramblings. I really sound "full of myself." I don't mean to, I just get excited!

If you register at http://www.wowbound.com we'll be sure to advise you of any updates and the release of the INFO pack in the near future.

Cheers

You make me feel so old. My old floating match trick (Cosmosis) has been on the market longer than you've been flesh and blood. Whew! I think I'll sit down now!

Cheers

Enlightenment looks absolutely incredible.

But back to the topic at hand. Very funny, Rydogg6016. I just hope no one here is actually taking your post seriously.
