Just received ONE =) and yes I'm in the states, sorry Brian Smile


Believe it or not, I actually received mine this afternoon as well, and I would agree with Nadeem's comments.

Couple of points to consider:

1. There is a noise factor that will have to be overcome somehow.
2. There were no video instructions, just the printed ones. I'm a visual person, and like to see things explained in detail. There is a video demo, but I would have preferred a video instruction.
3. There are two options given in the instructions for getting into starting position. The instructions for Option 1 sometimes get the words "left" and "right" mixed up (referring to hands and feet). I was a little confused at first, but the video demo helped me understand what was meant (see, told you I was visual!).
4. Wasn't sure if I should add this number 4 or not, but I will. After setting everything up, and trying it out, mine broke on the first try. Seriously. I've already emailed Peter about this, and sent photos. This was not a defect in the product itself, but in the kind of shoe I used. You can use this on many kinds of shoes, just not on the one I used (thin-soled running shoe). Perhaps Peter can give the buyers a heads up about that kind of shoe.

Hey thanks guys for the intial reviews so far! Keep in mind that this noise factor that is spoken of will decrease after a little bit of use. It just needs to be worked in a little bit, and not much either. You will find that the mechanical part of this gimmick will self-adjust to the way it works over a little bit of use and practice. This is normal and not a defect. I mention in the final notes aswell about the speed of the mechanical opperation of the effect and how it will self adjust and this will reflect the noise you may intitially experience, trust me when I say it just needs to be worked in a little bit and then it will level out to the point noise is a non factor. Perhaps I should have stressed this a little better in the instructions but I do mention in the final notes that it will self adjust after some use.

Brian did send me photos, and his shoe sole was strange and bowed out, and not a kind of sole I had ever used before, it could have also been directly associated with how it was adjusted thus alterating the sole to its current state. I don't think it will be much of an issue at all, instead just one of those wierd things that happens. But as I told Brian we will replace it for him no problem.

Looking for forward to more reviews!

Ps I was torn about having to release a full instructional session on Video. After my experience with E1, there were shops for example in Singapore that was simply renting out the Video for $5 with an explination on how to make the gimmick yourself. Now while this is not as easy to make nor can the parts be bought as they are in the finished product, but just for added defense against exposure and piracy I decided to do mainly written instructions with photos, along with different demo versions on video that would act more as a guide to the written instructions as opposed to a full blown explination on video. I think when you combine the different demos I provide on video along with the written instruction, it completes the teaching and in more secure way for everyone. I know some may disagree, but I just wanted to explain why we did what we did.

PPS, for those yet to recieve their unit, make sure you have a flush adjustment to your footwear if using pre-set option 2 to avoid the abscure problem Brian first encountered. I am going to make sure this point is a more evident point in future publication of the instructions. Any questions people have, I will be more than happy to answer, and until then happy floating!

Also just a note to all, I am going to be leaving town tomorrow in the late afternoon and won't be able to return emails and such until later Sunday night/Monday Morning after I have returned late Sunday afternoon.

And again thank you to both Lord of Illusionz and Brian for their intial reviews in this thread, and to the emails I have also received from others who have received it with great feedback! I again look forward to more reviews.

Thank you,

Peter.

Brian, what was the brand of running shoes you were wearing? I am planning to use ONE with street/sports shoes and I don't want the same thing happening to my ONE. I attached a pic of my shoe...very thin sole as well.

Zoneinfinite, Brian actually used a similar shoe with pre-set option 1. There are 3 options in which to choose from to pre-set/adjust your shoes. I do not reccomend Pre-set Option 1 with thin soled running shoes. And as long as you make sure you have a flush adjustment with pre-set option 2 you should have no problems, or you can always use the pre-set option 3 which will require a few more minutes of preperation as a one time only prep. The system has been designed to basically adjust to any kind of footwear(except for women's high heels). So you can use this kind of shoe, but I would go with option 2 or 3. I know none of this makes any sense right now, but it will once you receive the system. And again I am going to make sure that this is made more clear in further publications of the instructions.

Alright thanks! Will heed your advice and avoid option 1. I hope the initial setting up isn't too technical or difficult, it shouldn't be since I remember reading no tools required. Smile

I was about to post a photo of my shoe, but the file was too big. But like Peter said, it's pretty similar to yours. Mine was called "Joe Fresh Style".

Setup won't be complicated. But now I've got wait for a replacement before practicing some more. :-(

I have Gel'ed insoles in my shoe at the heel end, will I have to take these out?

All this talk about it braking got me scared!

Does the bottom of the shoe matter, or only the inside?

I wear Lugz

Hi Guys,

Waiting for the ONE to enter the UK. I also plan on performing this in a street setup - ie bars and clubs. Although I do wear shoes quite often I tend to live and die in my Nike Air Max's!! they have really thick soles and the "air bubble" around the heels, I take it these won't effect ONE's stability etc..?

Thanks

Oh Im also a visual learner - but I also think that any measures taken by Peter, to protect this from exposure have to be considered as a thumbs up from us all!!

Would hate to perform this at my local, where some idiot says

"Yeah I'll send you the link where it tells you how it's done!!"

Arrgghh!!!

Thanks Peter cannot wait for my ONE!

Piz lugs should be fine and so is your gel insert, its just that part of the device can be damanged due to a pressure problem when option 1 is used with thin soled running shoes. And kris, airmax thick soled running shoes will be fine too! that's the kind of running shoe I mostly experimented with. All other shoes should not be an issue either, just thin soled running shoes used with option 1.

Wow review finally. Keep them coming. Can anybody rate the potential of ONE? Is it really a significant improvement from E1/E2 and thin air?

Can't wait for my package to arrive.

By the way, Peter, I am from Singapore and sad to hear about the $5 exposure DVD rental in my country. I believe I know which shop you are referring to.

The good thing is that magic is quite a niche market in Singapore. Hence, there are only a few vendors selling it and I reckon the exposure and damgage to E1 will not be that great.

Nevertheless, I sincerely apologise on behalf of my countryman misdeed.

Its not your fault about the rental and exposure of E1 in your country, no need to appologize. Not much one can do either as copyright laws don't even carry over into Singapore. That wasn't the only country either I heard that about, I just gave that as an example. Its funny though that everyone seems to know which shop it is that was talking about...lol.

Also I am getting ready to leave for a few days and will be back to answer all emails and such by sunday night/monday. I won't have access to a computer or my email until then, so I will be absent from this thread aswell during that time. I also sent out an email to all my customers letting them know not to use thin soled running shoes with option 1, so I hope that the issue will be contained.

I look forward to more reviews when I come back from my trip, and to answer any questions people may have in regards to the product! Thank you all for your support.

So is it really possible to rise slowly and make it look good? I can't see that happening if it's like Elevator.

I would have to say no, you can't slowly rise up, but if performed right, you can give the illusion (which is what all magic is), that you did indeed rise up slowly.
