Peter, can those of us that purchased the half finished E2 get a discount for ONE?

I purchased E1 and E2 from Peter. I did E2 at a local bar last weekend and I had one guy offer me a pretty fair amount of money to show him how I did it. Of course I never told him anything but he pestered me all night about it. I finally told him I don't know how I do it, I just do it sometimes. His wife laughed and said I was "possessed". The guy ended up buying me a drink and thanked me for freaking him out.

It took me about 6 months to perfect doing the E2. The reactions I get from people now prove to me that the time and effort put into learning E2 was worth it. Not bad for a half finished product.

I'm going to get ONE.

I wonder how many E2's would have been sold if it was mentioned it would take approx 6 months to master? I don't mind spending a week or two, but 6 months? I would never risk using the E2, but that's just me.

Maybe I should have been a bit more clearer in my previous post. It only took me a few hours to be able to do E2 after I got it and a few more days days to actually be able to perform it. I performed it "live" for a few people less than a week after I got it and the people freaked out.

It took me about 6 months of experimenting and trying different techniques to perfect the routine and get the audience reactions that I wanted to do. Once I had the "mechanics" down (less than a week) it took time to perfect the "showmanship". (about 6 months) I'm not saying it will take everyone 6 months to be able to perform E2. It took me personally that long to be happy with my performance.

It's fairly obvious that there are some people that were dissapointed with E2 for whatever reasons. I happen to like it and am getting GREAT reactions from performing it.

I bought the original Elevator 5 or 6 or so years ago. I pull it out when I want to get in a hamstring workout. I'll also pull it out if I get a sudden urge to crouch down in public. This one looks good. I admire the persistence Peter!

Best, Platt

LOL, brilliant. I agree though Platt, I think Peter has nailed it this time.

Hello Everyone,
Thanks for all the good and bad comments about the ONE levitation. Comments such as these makes us appreciate all the time, phones calls, and e-mails that Peter and I have exchanged in the thinking process of creating something that we both feel has really hit the mark.

If my schedule permits, I will be shooting a video next week with my handling of the ONE levitation.

I am considering a purchase of this effect for trade show use (aisle level - close up). For those that have made the plunge, please advise:

1) Angles. Copy says can be viewed from the sides. More specifically, are we talking 180 degrees? 90? 45?

2) Dress: Would I need any modification to my business suit?

3) Comfort: Would I comfortably wear this for a 9 hr day?

4) Is there any consideration that might make this effect not optimal for the trade show venue?

Your responses are very much appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Yes, I agree with you and I have a few things planned that should be very interesting and fun to watch when I do my video. But, also in Peter's video, you can CLEARLY see UNDER his feet. The very last shot of his video is a really good view. It really don't get much better than that.

This is the problem with a lot of the armchair guys and hobbyists. Sometimes an effect can take up to a year PLUS(+) to get it in the proper performing space. If you are not willing to put in time to perfect something, then why bother at all?

It's not the time. It's the effect and entertainment value. (And usability factor of course)

Armchair Guys? I am a British Paratrooper who has just returned from a six month tour of Iraq, and a year before that, Afghanistan. I don't sit in armchairs all day and I do not have 6 months spare to learn to hover. Thankyou.

I have the highest respect for ALL of the men and women who have served and are still serving in Iraq and Afganistan.

Due to my full time job I don't sit in an armchair all day either. The reason it took me about 6 months to perfect my routine is because I could only practice an hour or so at a time maybe a few days a week. If I could have devoted all of my time to practicing I could have probably had my routine the way I liked it in less than a month.

It would be nice to devote all of my time to perfecting my magic but unfortunately I have other things in my life to obsess over too.

Cool...that is cool..

I did over 20 year’s active duty and had my time in the big sand box also. But, we both know that you do have down time. I was always practicing my card stuff and hypnotism. During my down time it seems that I was able to really concentrate better. It was a way for me to relax and have an enjoyable moment and forget where I was.

Ray, I am assuming your schedule did not permit? Too bad.
