Though this looks attractive,
I doubt it is as impromptu as it appears.

I also have an aversion to the floating person
being slumped over like a dead fish.

And my personal belief is that a 360 spin,
gives away clues to method due to the need of a pivot-point.

OK, I know I’m tough, but think….
theatrically what should constitute an elegant and enchanting levitation?
What are the elements that would most distract away from any method?

My two-cents,
Walt

Personally, I've been thinking for years and years about a levi spinning off from a dance move, say a ballet lift. Slow and graceful. And it could have a story line (like ballet) or not (like, say, Martha Graham).

I looked at the behind the scenes video on the website..

as for the "spontanaity"... it includes the whole table.. but at least there's no box on the floor.. it packs fiarly small.. (the size of a 1970's suitcase).. and the rotation isn't 360... it's more of a "she has no gravity" turn... not around the body... but on a subtle axis.

The speed of the rise is adjustable... which I LOVE...

It seems to be a small-ish.. exceptoinally transportable levitation..

as for the floating like a dead fish.. if your assistant is in good shape.. I think he/she could stay stiff for a while.. until their abs gave out..

Hello, I'm new on the magic café. I am also the creator of the Spontus360 levitation.
first : I'm very sorry, I have a bad english, but I will try to explain you many thinks on the lévitation:
What that mean: 360° ? That mean you can présent the levitation completly surrounded (whith spectators just near you, on the right side, the left sie, the back, the top and under. really !
The big interrest of the Spontus 360 is also that you can use a lady randomly chosen in the public.
If you want, you can do a rotation of the assistant during the levitation. It's not 360 ° , but only 30° clockwise and 30° more in the opposite direction. This give a interessant movement.
Is my english god enough ?

Good enough.

Great look to the levitation, but how our audience reacts to what we do is more important.

Yah, that's hard to say from this clip since this audience was obviously rehearsed. It couldn't be performed as spontaneously as was shown. But from what makeupguy shared (thanks Mike!), this has a lot of potential given that it's easily transportable.

What Spontus360 means is that you can present the levitation completely surrounded. Spectators can be near you, on the right side, the left side, and behind you. Spectators can look the top of the table and under the table, too !

The biggest advantage of the Spontus 360 is that you can use a volunteer randomly chosen from the public.

If you want, you can do a rotation of the assistant during the levitation. It's not 360° (around your body), but only 30° clockwise and 30° counter clockwise from a center point. This give the levitation an interesting movement.


Just a little editing in a little more readable English format. And Yes, it is good enough for me to understand and edit.

I am amazed at the workings. Also to answer the Magician question (Magician's Only) section, The Professor is... dai vernon

I just wish I could understand what you are saying, especially when the electronics are being shown.

It looks like something that would work in close quarters such as a Birthday Party, however, $6,000 is a lot of money for a Birthday Party Levitation.

Hello,

Here the translation in english of the inside video :

"I wanted to create a levitation that is the most efficient and the most practical as possible.
I wanted a levitation that could be presented everywhere, in the middle of the audience, which means completly surrounded.
Due to this fact this levitation was necessary that to be extremely silent.

There's no really preparation needed in front of the audience. It's a simple matter of moving a table on casters forward on the stage, a table that you could use aswell as a pedestal table.

There's no restraint of lighting, so you could even present this levitation on the street, if you wanted to.

This levitation is completly independent. There're no strings, no electrical wires.
You can present this illusion until 25 times in a row with an audience member weighty until 100 kg.
The delaying before the levitation is ajustable.
The delaying in mid air is ajustable.
The speed of levitation is ajustable.
The maximum of height is ajustable.
During the stage of levitation you can, if you want to, carry out a rotation of the audience member.
The unit can be put together and dismantle in less than two minutes and is carried in a big suitcase."

Hope this helps.

Oliver.

Thanks for the translation.

Was that the translation of the front video or the password protected "Magician's Only" Video? Password: dai vernon

Dennis,

It's the translation from the password protected "Magician's only" video.
I'll see if the comment on the "offical" video is different and translate it if necessary.

Oliver.

Shouldn´t the password be kept secret? It´s an open forum...
I know the people could also google it, but than at least they have a little bit of work and they maybe learn a bit of the magic history.

There is nothing secret given out in that video. The method is not mentioned, at least not in English.
