Scattered Dream, shared his Egg routine with me prior to the release of ONE, and I found that it was a great idea for use with the original Elevator as it took care of the bending down move that was needed with the original Elevator. And although this move is not used in ONE, it still is a very different approach to the effect. I think its a very clever idea.

I also agree with both sides of the coin from Patrickgregoire's comments and Mac's comments. It really is an individual prefered way of performing the effect(or any effect for that matter) either way. It all comes down to the individual performer and the end results one wishes to acheive.

In my opinion: I think the strength of one is that you can see under the feet,why compromise such an amazing facet?The egg thing is a great excuse to bend down(which is required in elevator 1).My One is due to arrive on the 20th.Im so excited.

^^^ Let us know what you think Mac?! It's a wonderful levi, I am having a ton of fun with mine Smile



P.S. Everyone remember Alex with the X-Levitation, the levi that ripped-off Peters Elevator and Aaron Paterson's Icarus? Well, he's back and has an effect out at Penguin! Check-it...

Well guys, I just received the "Problem Solver" to the wood debacle, and let me just say it is simply brilliant what Peter & Ray have done to enhance the new device!

It actually "Grips" better! Those who own the levi will know what I am talking about. You also will get a higher Levitation from this new working, I measured and it is only 1/8th of an inch difference, but with a levi of this nature it is noticeable. I noticed the height difference from the second I started levitating, I felt higher (I can relate this to when you are a little kid, you mark a line on the wall documenting your height, and when you grow a little more, then stoop down to that line, you notice the difference from your old/new height to the ground).


Big thumbs up to Peter and Ray, these men just perfected this thing! Unless you can really float, I cannot see it getting any better then this (well, Mechanically I can, but that's money and much more research, till then, ONE prevails! Smile).

Got mine today, a bit of initial disappointment but will give it a fair chance and report with a full review.

I PM'd you Mac...

Be happy brother! This KILLS with the right lighting, etc! Work with it brother! You have seen all the Vid's with seeing under and through to the other side! The potential of this levi is only beyond what you feel your imagination can comprehend! Smile

Simply work on it and appreciate what you are working with...


WORK WITH IT!!!

What do you mean by right lighting? Are there lighting restrictions?

Yes somewhat.

I don't know how to state this without exposure but the further away they stand the better.

I would avoid direct sunlight if you are looking for them to see under.

^^^ Thanks Semo! Smile


A magician buddy of mine from out of State came into town earlier today, has a club gig out here in Chicago to take care of for the next 3 weeks. He just received his ONE couple days before leaving, we plan on meeting up within the next couple of days, going out and shooting some Video on ONE as he needs some footage of himself performing for promotioanl purposes. Where looking to get some good action to hopefully post on here! Smile


P.S. Through all my testing with ONE levi I have found that without question, the best surface to do this on would be thin rug with a pattern on it, crazier the pattern the better, any color will do, the gimmick is 100% unnoticable from the angle at which the spec will be viewing (Standing or YES, EVEN kneeling), they will be able to see straight through to the other side (Rug in my Vid is a great example of this, I have found better though, black with gray pattern is incredible!).

Scattered Dream - firstly THANK YOU for your brilliant idea with the egg! Great lateral thinking, and will give me the chance to make The Elevator pay for itself! The egg takes all the heat off, and offers the chance to make the levitation FUNNY. Eggs are funny anyway, as long as they get broken in the end!
Well, this thread has made me re-think the self-levitation. I have the Elevator, and had pretty much decided that it wasn't for me, though it still takes up space in my workshop....
Now, I see that I haven't given Elevator a fair chance, and I'm even tempted by Peter's new version. But I'll wait until I get his Blaster Box first....gee, so many things on the shopping list all of a sudden!
Perhaps for now, I will first "tread on eggshells", with the Elevator, and then follow that up with the Neo-Rise levitation, which I think is very comical. It would be SO cool to end with ONE....we'll see.
Anyone have a video of a live performance?

That was freaking hilarious Jon in doing it in the exact same location! Great job on performing ONE!

Just a side note to all. I am leaving for Vegas in a couple of days for the Tenyo Elite debut at the World Magic Seminar and so my time on a computer over the next week and a bit will be limited, so you may find that I may not be able to answer as many questions, PMs, or emails during this time, but I will get to them as soon and as fast as I can. Just know that I am not ignoring anyone, and I will answer them eventually.

Jon,
You must have to much time on your hands. LOL

That was cool that you did it in the VERY SAME spot that PIZ did.

Matter of fact, we can REALLY see under your feet!

That was ONE great job! LOL

Glad that you like ONE.
