Sorry folks, my mistake... after a few tries I finally started my computer again and it worked... but apparently there's no further explanation on the CD... just a video demo. Smile
I'm off to practice! Smile

Hum... just a question: I don't really see why the wooden part would make any trouble... could anyone enlighten me on this point by PM if necessary? I wouldn't like to make it break...

^^^Have you figured out why with the wood GoldenEye?

I had to PM someone also to figure-out why! Your not the only one!

How do you like it?

Have you performed it yet? To what reactions?

Where's your demo brother?lol


Sorry, I just love this levi, simply wondering what others are experiencing! Smile

My Review:

ONE - Peter Loughran and Ray Noble

I got this in the mail a couple of weeks ago, and opened it with great excitement and anticipation. I was one of the first few to get the original Elevator, and while I liked it, I had a bit of difficulty performing it regularly because of some issues with stiff and painful joints. “ONE” promised to be an improvement, and I was eager to discover if, in fact, it was.

After spending a bit of time with it, I can answer my own question with a resounding YES. There are some similarities to the Elevator, but they have been tweaked and improved to the nth degree. I haven’t had it long enough yet to perform it publicly, but initial reactions are very good. ONE improvements:
•Easier to get into
•Easier to get out of
•Easier to use
•Easier on your body
•Much more stable
•Much better angles
•Much more deceptive
•Much more versatile

There is a bit more initial work with ONE, depending on how you want to use it, but once that’s done it is quite user-friendly. The accompanying DVD and documents walk you through everything from prep work to use in different situations to performance ideas. Peter and Ray have outdone themselves--if you want a powerful, astounding, realistic self-levitation, this is the “ONE” for you!

Interesting thread, and one that has taken WAY too much of my time this morning!

Quick question - I usually wear a pair of blue jeans (not the baggy hip-hop type, just old skool blue jeans) and a tee shirt (untucked now that I no longer have my youthful washboard abs).

Would ONE work for me wearing this type clothes?

Thanks.

Has anyone uploaded a decent demo video yet in a real world situation? I am interested in purchasing this but would like to see a demo in a real world setting with real reactions of spectators. Peter;s video is good but would like to see a video of someone performing it. Thanks

Questions to those who have it.

I understand that there are no mirrors, but does the effect require any reflection?

Does the ability to see under the feet allow long periods of staring, or is it more of an 'at a glance' type of thing.

I'm intrigued by the reviews, and I'm really baffled by this, and I've done quite a bit of self levitation. Too bad so many self levitations that have come before are keeping people away if it's this good.

You wouldnt wanna do it in bright places- and you wouldn't wanna stay up long enough for them to have a critical look under your feet.

I am going to guess this is because you are supported either via some piece of clear plastic/plexi-glass, or some form of metal. (correct me if I'm wrong).

Frankly it looks like a fantastic peice of work, but I think I may have watched it far to many times Smile

Its extremely obviously which foot is the supporting one, by the obvious weight shift to it, as well as the fact that every time he "lands" that foot does a weird little hop and pushes itself forwards, obviously triggering or hiding some form of mechanism. But as I said, I have watched it too many times. Smile For most spectators only seeing it twice would blow their minds, especially if he did a slower hover.

^^^ I disagree with not letting the spec's get a decent view under your feet, actually it is plain false as proven by the video posted below. As I have stated numerous times, it all depends on the pattern of the carpeting/flooring you are performing ONE on.

I have done this on every imaginable patterned surface since I've had this, I pretty much mastered that part of it to where I know exactly what I'm looking for when I step into performance mode.

Check-out Jon Maronge in his ONE levi video (Remember to watch in HD), you can clearly see under his feet to the other side, and he stays up there quite a while. Once you have that knowledge of knowing what to look for, there is no worries of the spec seeing anything.

Oh believe me I have seen under the feet just in the demo video, its an amazing effect, hence I am leaning towards the idea of a clear plastic or something similar.

Yes I have seen that before, again very good, I like how he conceals the "move" with his right foot as he drops down as part of his "fall".

Breif question regarding mechanics, how portable is it? Can you run with it?

^^^ You can run with it, sky-dive with it, whatever you want. Not sure I would, but ya could.

Why would you want to run with it in the anyway? You trying to rob someone while floating and then jet?
