^^^ Mac, you just seen the reactions this gets! What more do you need?!!

I'll tell you what, I'm up to the challenge, even though I see no need for it (and also because I have nothing better to do at the moment)! Smile

Oh yeah if you want to see Piz's videos in much higher quality, just click on the "watch in HD" link at the bottom right of the video. It's MUCH clearer with a bigger screen. Problem solved. Smile

Thanks for the effort Piz but I couldn't even see the levitation. All I saw was when you were at the peak. I couldn't see the transition from the ground to the peak and then from there back to the ground.

Question: They say you can perform this with viewers sort of on the sides, but can you perform it with a SLOW RISE with people watching sort of on the sides, or must they be directly in front? I have a feeling you can't, because they'd see you with your heels up first and just lifting up your toes, right?

Piz, my friend.

it wasnt a challenge, I'm hoping your video inspires the leap of faith I need to outlay the cash thanks to the exchange rate Smile

thank you so much for uploading your video- reading the previous pages I can tell it was an epic battle of man vs technology Smile

Agree on that btw... The transition was not that clear because of the lightning conditions maybe... But thanks so much for uploading this. The view at the peak was quite impressive!

Excellent! The feet look 100x better this way.
For some reason though white stuff keeps moving around on your pants when I watch it in HD - it must be something to do with my video card?

I tried it in HD, nice and crisp picture but on my computer it slowed down the video so it still wasn't that great. It was a little choppy.

Thanks Magicusa!


Absolutely Kune! I am watching it on my 42' LCD wide-screen TV right now, and it looks beautiful!

I am just wondering why I stood there so long after landing? I usually walk away the second I land. Hey, maybe I have video FRIEGHT! DADADA!lol

^^^ IMO this levi is WAY to good not to do something about this, but we shall see. It's in Ray and Peter's hands from here.

I have posted bellow the comments made thus far about the fragility of this product. According to these two accounts (posted bellow), the product is extremely fragile, the creators should go "back to the drawing board," and the device SHOULD HAVE been made with a stronger material.

In other words, people are being encouraged to give their hard earned money to creators that SHOULD HAVE, COULD HAVE, but DIDN'T make a device that will endure. We're buying a product that was built to break!

To be fair, my comment is based upon the words of only two people, and I will take back this criticism if it proves to be too harsh. But, based on the testimonials thus far, people are praising the product for what it could be and not what it is. This is a trend in the magic industry: there are countless examples of effects that suffer from poor workmanship and a low quality of materials. As consumers, we do not have to put up with products that, if they were built to last, would have been really really good.

To quote Rod Danilewicz in December 2008's M.U.M. Magazine, "Why is it that a trick costing less than $500 may rate only mass production quality?"


Piz: "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..."

Holly: "The problem is that [the fragile piece is] attached to a heavier part and with repeated use it can eventually crack as the result of the weight of the part it’s attached to...The only solution I see is that it should be made of a different material."
