First and Foremost, as Peter and Brian have already mentioned....DO NOT USE THIN RUBBER SOLED shoes with the OPTION 1 setup! This includes running shoes, basketball shoes, skechers, etc. I cant stress this enough. If it was up to me, I would use this with boots, although a more extensive setup will be required, extensive meaning an extra half hour and a possible permanent alteration to one of the shoes that will look and feel normal and always be ready to go. Again I have not used this enough to say much more, but I can answer questions....PatrickGregoire you can rise slow if you want, will take much more practice/balance than just a suspension type effect like peter does. this all depends on your style. A mid air rotation is also possible. A real improvement compared to the first elevator is the fact that the setup happens in front of your spectators without bending down and of course the new technology to let people see under is a step forward. Will this be the final word on levitations? Not quite sure, but it definitely solves problems, nothing drastically different than previous levitations, just some out of the box thinking. I am brainstorming ideas to make the unit more silent and more sturdy so let me know if you all want me to share those and I would love to hear all of your thoughts on the new unit. The more ideas we have, possibly shift to secret sessions, the better this can become.

You mean it makes sufficient noise to be heard in a normal street environment??

no in a normal street environment you probably wont need to make any adjustments. Like Peter said, with repeated use, the noise level should decrease, but there is still something you can do to make this almost completely silent because I did the same for the first elevator.

You would need a completely silent unit for more intimate settings like in a living room in a house with only a handful of spectators.

Well, good news and bad here...

I received a HP package today, unfortunately it was the order I placed a day after my ONE levi was confirmed to have shipped! I know, I don't understand either, maybe package weight or ship method is taking a couple extra days for ONE to arrive? Hopefully tomorrow.


Thanks Lord and Brian, appreciate the insight.

This been asked many times already to no answer... How high do you actually get off the ground, not appear, but the actual height? I am really hoping it is more then 1-inch, please tell me it is? Smile

Thanks

First off I am mad at Lord of Illuzions for receiving this before I did; I am in Chicago and him California, last I checked Chicago was closer...jk. Ah, I am stuck now waiting for this and the Astonishment Project, I can't take it anymore. Anyway, all this talk about the shoes has me worried. I usually wear Steve Madden casuals and am wondering if they will work. Two pairs of my maddens actually look like zoneinfinite's, but they are not running shoes.

Haha, well I ordered from Paul at Hocus Pocus this time around and they are in Fresno, California. The guys at HP are amazing, they get me my orders in a couple of days. It should be there in no time, I think it takes two or three days extra to get to the midwest/east coast. As far as shoes go, please be careful, you will see what I'm talking about when you get this....other than that this looks really promising.

^^^ Why is it that when ever the question of how high you actually levitate is asked no-one seems to answer it?

Actual height in the air is about 2 1/2 to 3 inches....you can appear to go higher if you wear a particular type of shoe, honestly its all in the presentation, with your legs apart and you rising up even a couple of inches can be pretty shocking to a layperson, especially those specs who try to mess you up when you are in mid performance. One other thing I wanted to mention is that the product is backed by a 30 day warranty for parts and labor, for people that are on the fence and worried.

Thank you my Lord, much appreciated! Smile Have you actually measured it? The ******?

My FLY is 1-inch exactly (I measured), I was just hoping to get a little more height out of this ONE Smile

As far as presentation I know all about that, as FLY requires a "Higher appearance" while levitating. Much experience in the appearance field...

Thanks

I guess I'll probably know by tomorrow, if not Monday but I'm really disappointed to hear that it'll mostly look like a hop and not a levitation. It's not graceful at all.

^^^ I am going to try my darnedest to get a quick video up of me performing "ONE" levi tomorrow (If it arrives). I own a Digital Cam now (Unlike VHS with FLY levi that I couldn't transfer) that records in HD, so should not be a problem.

I'll go up as slow and naturally as possible. Looking forward to this...

I'd love to hear your ideas on how to make the unit more silent and any other improvements you've discovered Nadeem. If you could PM them to me that would be great, since I unfortunately still don't have quite enough posts for the secret session forum.

With all due respect, I need to know if you actually own the unit first, there are way too many lurkers here just trying to find out how tricks work, PM me when you get the unit and we'll talk =).

Piz, I eyeballed the measurement of the ******, its about three inches, I don't have it on me right now but that's what I remember when I was practicing. hope that helps, please post a video when you get the chance, I want to see different styles of presentation. I don't have a digital cam so I wouldnt be able to.

You don't have to hop up, you can make it look like a rise, it will take more practice, that's the way I intend on using it. I have already developed a casual presentation, I don't like the way Peter presents it in the demo because it looks a little rushed for my style, but you also want to keep the duration brief cause it strengthens the illusion.

Well Piz, may the best man win Smile I guess for once not ordering direct had its benefits. HP is really good at getting their orders out.

^^^ 3,129 miles from America's to London. I guess it depends on where in the U.S. you start out and where in England you wind up. Could be much longer depending on your location and where person/company is you ordered ONE from.

According to my calculations your order will be arriving next Tuesday. Smile


Sincerely
