That thing folks use for simple (cheap) presentations instead of a slide projector so they can manage the show themselves - usually not for pictures though. way before powerpoint and PCs attached to projectors.

A bit like when people used to glue two playing cards together before you could buy double faces etc?

Just because you could botch this together before doesn't make this any less valid a release. These guys have obviously worked on this to iron out the problems and create some very effective magic.

Like all things in magic it wont be for everyone...

I have seen some of the effects on the DVD and they look great. James Brown has a particularly good routine that does not use a sig transpo but obviously fools the hell out of the spectators judging by their reactions!!

Wasn't it clearly stated that you can make a duplicate card with exact signature or am I missing something here?

If it is what I think it is then none of the cards actually have a signature on it, only the gimmick, right?

Well....Can you or can you not produce an exact duplicate of the card the spec.
initially signed!? If that is NOT the case we have another hyped up BS advertisement here that is a LIE. I was LOL when I watched the Gecko demo shot over the shoulder selling an 'utility device' like no other...and trying to sell us the idea, that we can make cell phones and beer bottles vanish...?!

Let's keep our feet on the ground Gentlemen.

sincerely,

Seriously? Is it not possible to create a dublicate signature instantly and destroy it in full view?

If that is true I feel pretty screwed, by having ordered this product already...

Hmmm... hopefully not just a s*** of **a***c with a lip or s*****n*e*, that's not a bad method or anything, but not what I would have been hoping for as it wouldn't allow for as much freedom when it comes to utilizing the sig.

I bet the dvd has some really cool routines utilizing it though.

Read what I wrote - like I said, I'm looking forward to unique handlings etc. so calm down pal. I was just hoping it was more than a method that already existed before.... and now hoping it is some innovations and techniques to add to pl**t** trans***** use...

Now I look forward to reviews from purchasers... that is all. I am hoping this will be an excellent success.

Yes you can make a duplicate of an initialed card.
The duplicate is on the crystal method card though. Lots of potential with this.
James Brown has some excellent input and thoughts on the DVD - legend...

Ok I must be the only one having this issue but the gimmick looks weird and they cant take the signed card with them. Something so personal and the magician keeps it. I love the idea, seriously I really do but what I recieved from genii looked like a frosted piece of p*****C. Can we say what it is.

Ted- I think you're not understanding the options you can do with CM.
Have you read the effects on Genii possible with it?
Try it on some people then blogg back...

Hi ragingcalm thanks for your observation. We've tried to be very respectful regarding exposure on Youtube hence why the trailer hopefully doesn't give away the whole method.

To this end, there are many applications we've been unable to put onto the trailer. Not all the applications for this effect are colour change type things but it was felt these were the most visual for the trailer. However, the card isn't actually changing, you are moving the spectators signature from one card to another. The instructional DVD will contain many ideas from some of the top names in close-up magic here in the UK. You can visibly remove signatures or allow a volunteer to drop their signed card into a drink only for it to completely vanish.

Crystal method can also be used to give you an instant duplicate of THEIR initialled signed card. There are several other ideas which we'll try and film as routines and post on Youtube shortly.

Thanks for all your feedback guys - have a great weekend.


This is kind of confusing... Do you mean duplicate of their initialled card or their initially signed card.

As of now it seems that the gimmick cannot be given away or is spotted during the performance...although you also stated that the gimmick can be given away...

Let's cut this hyped marketing BS and state the real facts please.

What would I want to use a duplicate card for if I can't hand it out, destroy, or make it go to an impossible place the spectators can get their card themselves. And what are all those In the spectators hands effects you talk about on the product page. You have just stated it is best to be a metre or two away from the spectator when you use this gimmick.

I would love to see some reviews when the DVD comes out, but right now I am withdrawing my order on Magic Cave and waiting. This is a NO GO for me.

Tjernobyl- wait and see the DVD reviews.
With top guys behind this effect, I suggest you SEE the range of miracles one can perform before opening your mouth.

'' Do you mean duplicate of their initialled card or their initially signed card. ''

Both

Please note there and MANY more effects not just using signed cards.

I got the card in Genii. I want to like this, but it seems like something that looks a lot better on video than in real life. Granted, I have not tried this out on anyone. As far as makeing signitures appear on a card, it seems easier (and less expensive) to just use a duplicate un-written on card.

I am still slightly intrigued by this.

People seem stuck on signature ideas.

There are LOADS MORE EFFECTS than just signatures!!!
