PIZ,
That is GREAT! Can't wait to see your Video. I have Sunday free and will shoot a small video myself.

I have been a little busy with other projects and just couldn't find the time to shoot a video. Sorry!

I am totally HAPPY that you find the ONE to be a great levitation! As you know Peter and I mixed and matched out ideas to give you guys ONE heck of a levitation.

You wonít believe this:

I received mine today. I carefully read all the instructions and followed them to the letter. I worked on ideas and presentations and I practiced all day with no problems whatsoever.

Then when I finally got ready to set the apparatus aside for the evening, I dropped it! When I picked it up, the wooden screwdad thatís connected to the thingamabob inside the doohickey had cracked. I donít even know how it happened. I dropped it from my hand to my carpeted floor.

Iím not sure what to do. I guess itís my fault it broke. Anyone know what Peterís policy is in a situation like this?

This is an addictive little contraption. I found a very easy way to do the adjuster that worked perfectly.

I honestly think some of the noise might be able to be overcome with timing. I really think people will gasp or talk and make noise that will help disguise the sound of the apparatus. It would probably be heard on videotape but I have a feeling spectators may miss the noise for shock at the sight of a person levitating. I can see how it might be pretty shocking to someone.

If one gets a certain choreography, and with the right presentation, this can be one of the most convincing self levitations ever.

Holly: Peter is an amazing guy, I'm sure he will do what he can to help you out. Read the warranty portion of your manual. That part of the device is very fragile so I think we should come up with ways to strengthen it. I already have some ideas. As far as the noise is concerned, its easily fixable, I remember reading a thread back in 2004 that generated ideas on how to fix the same issue with E1. All I can say right now is think "rubber bands" or rubber cement Smile Piz, you're messin' with my study time dude, why couldn't you just lie and say that the reaction that you got from your pops was horrible haha, now I wanna see your presentation.

I just hope the videos done before I have to go into work since I'm really want to see it. On the other hand seeing it when I get home would still give me something to look forward to.

OK guys, let me explain whats going on here...

I uploaded a vid, which was the last vid that my laptop was showing me, which should have been the last vid that I recorded. Whenever I upload from my home computer, the very last vid is the what it is, the last vid I took on my cam; Not with my laptop for some odd reason.

I am downloading Quick-Time right now so I can see what Vids I am selecting to put on YouTube. It literally takes a good Half-Hour to download to YouTube, which is a pain in it-self!


Now, speaking of this device being fragile, it is! I had a tiny crack in the wood from the blank going into it when I first received it. The crack is not getting any better. Peter and Ray have GOLD on there hands here, If I where them I would seriously go back to the drawing board and use something other then wood, and up the price on this (FOR EXPOSURE SAKE). I cannot think of anything off the top of my head that would work other then wood, but with a little brain storming I'm sure they can think of something (Graphite! There ya GO!). This Levi is WAY to good, something needs to be done about this. I would easily pay Peter/Ray another $50 to $100 for something other then wood, and yes, I would do it now, on top of the $140 I already spent! that's how much this levi means to me at the moment. You all will see why I feel this way once you see my Vid. Now my Vid is not the greatest, and I did not try to make it that way, I am simply demonstrating the potential of this. And yes, the way you see me perform this in the vid is the exact way I performed it to every person I did it for today. I got the greatest reactions from my sis girlfriend, simply amazing! More latter.

I am still up (4am), DEAD tired trina get this Vid up.

Quick time only made it worse, as everytime I went through my Pic's, the second I got to my Vid's the screen would freeze. I went down to my Home computer, put the card in, and that thing is even worse!

I deleted Quick-Time on laptop, I have a Vid that I hope is the right one downloading. I tried to download this vid 2 other time to no success, as YouTube is saying.

No worries, it so darn late no-one's probably reading this.

Vid up if I DIE trying!

P.S. The Vid I intended to post was killed, as I seen something after about 50 times viewing it on my 42' TV! I scraped it and made a new one, in a different room, it's not that great, but still shows the potential of this piece.

I bet Pauly is now in a sleep induced coma, on the floor, still clutching his cam corder in one hand and a USB cable in the other. ONE lev still attached to his foot.

It's not very good news that the ONE is fragile, is it? Can't the fragile part be somehow strengthened once we receive it?

I would have thought it impossible for any (self) lev not to be fragile one way or the other.

It'll be a while before I receive mine, but hearing about the fragility has me worried also.
If it's any help as to new material, it looks like titanium is becoming a lot cheaper

Technically, the fragile piece should never be under any pressure. The problem is that itís attached to a heavier part and with repeated use it can eventually crack as the result of the weight of the part itís attached to.

The only solution I see is that it should be made of a different material. Iím no expert in such things though.

Piz, please donít hurt yourself. Smile


Holly


P.S. Whenever I get my ONE fixed, and after I get my presentation down, Iíll try to get someone to operate a camera for me and shoot this levitation in a performance with spectators, because the illusion itself really is spectacular.
