I think a visual readout option, in addition to a vibrating "thumper," would be a definite improvement, particularly for those communicating with multiple vibrations/thumps!

I'm actually talking about a second receiver, one that would display, for example, numbers digitally, instead of giving off "good vibrations." This second receiver would also be modular and would be able to display visually the various numbers sent by MD, IQ, etc.

Although my partner (my "second") doesn't need (or want) such a visual display, since she is the sender of info, my second will, in a second, second my motion to ask Craig to create a second receiver.

P.S. The visual display idea is not my original idea, but came to me from another Café member who I understand also originally came up with the modular receiver idea.

Its a good idea but where would you put it?
I thought a great place for the original receiver would be strapped on your microphone ....but didn't work as the buuzzes were amplified to everyone. lol
But it could work with a visual display I suppose. thoughts!!! Andy

Well Andy, you could hide the LED receiver anywhere that's visible to only you, like your table or case,dozens of possible hiding places really, even hide it in your shirt top pocket and look down onto the display,(i did that with Tim Wissemans LED reciver).
Putting it in your shirt pocket is the most conveniant for most folks I think.

Craig is it possible?

The breast pocket of your shirt or jacket would be a good place, but an even better place would be on the DIAL of a WATCH. For example, the final digit of the LED display of the time could actually be the code 0-9 sent by your secret assistant.

There are many ways a watch face could surreptitiously communicate the necessary info to you. And the entire electronic workings of the receiver would nicely fit inside a watch. It could even vibrate to signal you, too, as Ron Frank and Tom Kracker know so well.

In addition to the IQ, were the modular receiver contained inside a watch, it would be in the ideal place (and right out in the open!) to get the proper Proximity read. Having both a vibration option AND a visual read-out option would provide maximum security that you have the right read. Not sure what message you were just sent?--just check your watch!

This is great news! I'm saving to buy IQ so this just made me soooo much happier.

Craig's incredible. I hope he can make it happen. Smile

Last night, in a seemingly impromptu performance at a family gathering, I scored a Promystic trifecta. First, my eight year old daughter and I used IQ to perform the old Kreskin routine. There were 10 people at the party, so my daughter and I prearranged a code for each of them. While my daughter was out of the room, one of the 10 people pocketed a dollar bill. My daughter returned, asked each person whether they had the dollar bill, and instructed each of them to say no. She then revealed the liar who had the bill. I then did the Proximity effect with a Chapstick with several of the folks. Finally, when it was clear that gaffes played no role in any of this, I brought out Multi-Dimensional and pretended to use both facial expressions and voice to divine the number on the die by lie detection. Playing God has never been so easy. Thank you Craig!!!

I spoke to some "in the know" people and the watch idea might not be possible. According to the people who know quite a bit about this technology they say it's just not there yet. Would be cool though! I wonder what's up Craigs sleeve. Smile

There are some codes and routines in the 7thSense Code that will work with any thumper. Many top pros including tv mentaists have purchased the code along with the original thumper.

Now the code is available on its own for a limited time. And would be useful for the IQ.

A perfect effect with IQ is to have a set of 10 ESP cards, give spectator 5 for her to place in any order face down on the table, Psychic then places his 5 cards face down in front of the spectators cards, - then spectator turns over one at a time her ESP cards, as she does this Psychic does the same, as each card is turned it is seen that the Psychic has correctly predicted all her 5 choices. Spooky!

Jan,
maybe a m,,,,,, deck. ok same result .......
But is it as clean? no way! plus that's just for starters with IQ, then there are so many more imposible things you can do.

With IQ do you mean a thumper in general? Why would it be cleaner than a m.... deck?

Seems to me a poor use of a thumper there are so many very realistic imposssible routines possible.

A better and more dramatic use would be someone drawing the symbols ob flipchart way behind the mentalist who is blindfolded and names them for stage. Or reproduces the random order symbols from way at the other end of a room or better still in another room.

Better still reproducing a random drawing. A simple thumper can be made to look like the real thing.
