I have a market research question for everyone here. I have been performing a dancing cane routine in my 'Extreme Illusions of Fire' segment in my Master of Illusions Tour for a few years now. The difference being, mine is actually set a fire on the tip, like a torch and then the cane vanishes into black silks(A.K.A.>fantasio's vanishing cane)

I was considering selling a Kit which supplies you with the necessary gimmicks to transform a regular Fantasio vanishing cane into the flaming, dancing, vanishing cane, What I like to call 'The Ultimate cane'.
The kit would be very affordable, probably in the neighbourhood of around $20-30.00

My question is not how to market or sell it, I have already sucessfully invented, marketed and sold illusions and one close-up effect. I have already checked into the legalities regarding Fantasio and because they are original gimmicks and strickly add ons there seems to be no problem according to my legal advisor.

My question is, do you think there would be a market for such apparatus?

Peter, I have seen other add-ons for Fantasio or the steel canes. I think there would be reasonable interest in your item.

I would get in touch with the Fantasio set-up. They might do some cross promotion. Even if they don't, it is good to let them know what you are putting out and that your product has been proven in the real world.
Good Luck.
Have a Magic day

I open my act with a dancing cane. I have been thinking about doing a flaming cane. I think it would provide a good draw at the ren fairs. So yes, I would buy one.

Hi Peter!

Well guess what? I'm starting to get into stage magic and I'm falling in love with it! Dancing Cane was one of the first things I bought and even though I still can't get the thing to dance I would buy one!

Well, I hope others will be enthusiastic about your add on.

Best of luck on it!

Take care,
Dorian

Keep working on it, Dorian. It will come and then you won't be able to stop playing with it!

Peter, your idea sounds cool, I'd buy one. I do the dancing cane to open one of my stage acts.

Way to go Peter!

Another great idea! If you can take a Fantasio Vanishing Cane and make it dance, burn and still Vanish for $30, I think you will see a whole lot of folks looking to add this to their show

Good new fire magic is hard to find, and this is a great concept!
