I can't believe he said that! But it's Fearson, so what can you expect??

That is one heck of a levitation btw (Fearson's) but it's a royal PAIN to assemble! Lots of extra expense and time..I never did figure it all out by the written instructions once I purchased it. Ended up being a total waste of money for me.

The FFFF is a bit tricky to get down. I had to mod mine a bit to make it clip on as well. Ron Jaxon has some good work with it as well.

Is he leaning? or is the camera angle tilted?
It looks *** good though. You can see under his frickin' feet! So what the heck is holding him up? LOL It must be magic!

Congrats to Ray and Peter for coming up with this. I am not into the self levitation thing. But this does look good!

Chad

ps...LOL the line in the FFF video is priceless!

You could look under the feet with E2 too (from a distance, of course, like on this demo) but E2 was a half finished product IMO. Hopefuly this is the completed E2. I hope so.

I have been looking for something that could be done like this from stage. I wonder how long one can stay up in the air and what the balance issues are for us un-coordinated mofos.

Wow, baffling. I'd love to know if one could perform ONE standing in the middle of a shallow puddle? Like the puddles you find in a car park, or outdoor mall, after a quick shower. If so, this could be a wonderful method for a seemingly impromptu "walk on water" presentation.

Cheers

I'm surprised these two ever teamed up. I guess it just goes to show we can all get along after all! :o)

In reference to a post about Ray Noble's "On Thin Air Levitation-A Review/Preview"

It is Devin's method on how to get the gimmick to where it needs to be that is being ripped off by Ray Noble.

As for the Elevator comment goes, Ray admitted to me in a pm which I still have saved btw that his reinvented idea came from buying The Elevator, but it is the rest of the method that belongs to Devin Knight and should be his to re-release again if he chooses.

Ray also acknowledged the fact that what he had was infact a reinvented wheel and would not release his effect, Although Ray will never admit to it, I have these PMs saved aswell to prove otherwise. Then behind Devin's back Ray released it anyway.

I could be wrong but I think Ray is being given some poor and unethical advice and that's why he did what he did and continues to sell them.

Hey Guys thanks for the comments all good and negative.

I actually had no interest in ever working on another self levitation. Until me and Ray came up with ONE. It was just too good in my opinion not to release. It solved so many of the issues associated with other self levitations including our own.

In regards to Jason Purdy's comments:

At the time of that original debate on the Café I was mistaken in the methods used, and infact thought it was the same method used in Devin's retro gravity. It turns out after all of that went down, the two methods were different in my discovery, and I only eventually found this out when Ray sent me the ON Thin Air gimmick and Devin expressed his methods on Retro Gravity, and only after comparing the two methods I realized that they were infact different. Me and Ray worked out our disagreement like mature men, and moved on, and became friends, and eventually slowly started creating ONE.

I have been a member of the Café practically when it first started, heck I am even the very first paying advertiser on this website and have never not advertised. I have been around the block here long enough to know that there are some people who just love levitations, while others are just plain sick of them. And who can blame those who are, they do seem to pop up all the time. However I felt so strongly about this product that it deserved its release in itself as it provides an effect and practicality, I myself have been searching for ever since the original Elevator was released.

I know some people will love ONE, while it may not appeal to others. For me to expect anything different would be just plain ignorant. I realize that some will prasie the effect while others will throw stones, and Im ok with that. I know what me and and Ray have created here, and we believe very stongly in this product, and I knew this one had to be different, and we believe it is.

I am not here to debate anyone's opinion on the effect or self levitations in general, but if you do have a sincere interest in the product, please feel free to email me with any serious questions you may have.

Thanks again for all of your comments.

Peter.

Peter,

That was a nice post! I'm glad you and Ray has team up!

Now, let get back to "ONE". First let me say that I hate self levitation. I'm into coins, cards and things.
But, when I saw you do it. I said "WOW". This is the ONE to get out of all of the self levitation out there.
I do know how both, "The Elevator and On Thin Air works". By putting them together like you and Ray did is priceless.
I can't wait to see Ray do this his way on youtube.

WELL DONE GUYS!!!!

Thanks Emmett, also let me clarify that while we took limited aspects from our own previous levitations, we have combined them with an entirely new concept.

Also to quickly answer some of the questions that were asked that is not posted in our Q&A:
Yes you can do this over a puddle of water, because your feet can be apart when you levitate it is very easy to perform, you can go up slow or fast and you control the length of time you are suspended for.

After reading thru the Q and A section I am convinced that this is the ultimate lev out there. The reviews will tell, though.

Peter,

I have just watched the video demo for this. I do like certain aspects of the levitation due to the fact that this looks like something that could be done (to the minds of the spectators) on the spot and in the real world of living in the real world.

There are some magic effects that are specifically suited to be performed in actual environments with ideal parameters such as roving close up gigs, corporate environments, stage, private living room shows etc. Certain magic effects are best designed for certain performing venues.

What intrigues me about this levitation is that the performing arena really seems to be best suited for everyday "out in the real world" everyday scenarios where you aren't performing for a fee. In other words "when somebody asks to see a cool magic trick on the spot" Example, on the street, in a store, park sidewalk, bar, restaurant etc.

Of course this doesn't mean that it won't have a place in a proefessional payed gig because it will fly there too, but what I am saying is that it really seems to be perfect for anytime, anywhere in everyday life kind of scenarios under the correct circumstances of course.

Those types of levitations are very hard to find that would be suitable. I think this one would be great for just such occasions and as many of us know, you never know who your next "employer" for your services could be at any time. They could be standing in a grocery store waiting to pay for their goods, bus stop, restaurant, bar etc. and you have now been asked to perform some magic. If doing an on the spot self levitation doesn't get their attentiong and peak their interest, nothing will. These people are everyday people and some of them will be decision makers in their next company event or planning a private party and they may just need a magician to be there which of course could be you or me or anybody else.

Most levitations or self leviations requires certain requirments and Gi*****s to pull them off in a set environment. This "ONE" seems to be cool due to the complete self contained aspects and that you are not using any special covers are ready to go at a moments notice. Up until now, I have not been impressed with any self levitations that I have seen on either youtube or a few that I have seen in actual performance by other magicians. I have only used the Balducci very sparingly and only when the absolute best circumstances are at hand. I works great too but I never liked the aspect of facing away from the audience to make it work. This new levitation looks cool and I will sit back and wait to hear what others have to say about it.

I like your (and Ray's) new self levitation and that is the first time I have every said that about any self leviation!

I will be keeping my eye out on this one in the next few weeks as it is becoming quite an attractive future purchase.

Good work Peter and Ray,
Tony Chris
As magicians we create what onlookers call magic. If they truly believe in what we have created for them to witness then magic is real!!!
