Sean, if you look at my post further up the page you'll see that the item is still for sale at this page:

http://therevelationtechnique.com/affiliate.html (which is where his affiliates are sending the traffic)


Loh and behold... As for some weird magic... the page is there and the sales go on!

Thank you Davit, for all of your research! Smile
Then you'll rise right before my eyes, on wings that fill the sky, like a phoenix rising!

I couldn’t believe it could be, but then I clicked, and there it was for sale. I hope this was some sort of mistake.

I checked just moment ago and the message appears.

"This trick is no longer being sold."

As soon as anyone 'in the know' found out, the game was stopped. Let's put this down to an exuberant and slightly naive youth and move on.

I can't remember the last time a knock-off was stopped this quickly (or indeed stopped at all). Let's all be thankful for that.

You better try again.

This Rip Off product is still being promoted by multiple affiliates

Well, guess what? It's Back! The Revelation Effect a.k.a. The Revelation Technique will be launched on december, 12th. I wonder if there will be anything new in this instant download.

see this: therevelationeffect.com

Anyway, it clearly seems to be done with a piece of paper, as in the video the mentalist is holding a piece of paper (which seems to be folded, right through the center, I wonder what that could be good for *g*). But, alas, that is the one thing I don't understand. If it has to be done with the spectator writing down his secret word and I catch a glimpse of it or whatever, how can it be totally impromptu? In the video it says 100% impromptu and to me that means I could literally perform this effect naked with nothing in my hands. Or am I wrong?

Yeah, funny. =)

Oh that's not entirely true. Please have a quick look at the page http://therevelationeffect.com/contact.html# which leads to a 404 http error message - and right there, at the bottom, the terms, contact, trademark and privacy links are indeed clickable - but nonetheless they don't lead anywhere but to the 404 error message.

Seems to me that someone again wants to make some dirty money with acidus novus.. But this happy little camper here won't help him. Come on man, whoever you are, that's bad karma.

BTW, Mr Dekel, thanks for mindcraft: perceptions, I really like it. Great stuff, small price - thanks a lot!! =)

I bought it, Its good, I will be able to use it as it suits my style of magic, The link to the original effect is given (http://www.mevproshop.com/acidus-novus.html) which I suppose is better than giving no credit to the original effect, It comes with 3 bonuses (Think of a card, Psychological opener and Q&A) which can be used as a follow in to effect but because its not original and it is just a old trick wrapped up in new packaging I give it 6/10

It may be good, but it's not only not the original, but reselling Millard's intellectual property, WITHOUT HIS PERMISSION, and with no added value; seriously, like his little spin-offs are real effects... It's not just an old trick, it's not in the public domain, it's a well designed, copyrighted method that this individual is stealing, repackaging, and selling with no known clearly stated benefit to Longman, and hyped up to sell like hot cakes to unsuspecting individuals.

So a thief advises everyone where he stole the stuff from? That's not quite 'giving credit'.

Is this from that dork draped across someone else's Rolls Royce?

I get the people who are clueless and don't know any better buying this, but to knowingly purchase something that you know is a ripoff of someone else's work and support thievery is something I can't wrap my head around.
Some people hear voices.. Some see invisible people.. Others have no imagination whatsoever.

It would appear his plans were laid deeper than we thought:

http://therevelationeffect.com/affiliategroup.html

"The Revelation Effect" might just be an affiliate...

So, has anyone actually purchased this? Can anyone who has seen it verify that it is Acidus Novus?

I've had a search and I don't think Tim David is the man. Perhaps he is just promoting it as an affiliate?

Time for some naming and shaming.

This page indicates the a certain Michael Vinci is behind it:
http://www.aweber.com/archive/freemagict......ICE_.htm

Who is Michael Vinci? Maybe he is the marketing man who hired the mentalist to create the product? Maybe he is one of the below... Or someone else???? A real life spook.

As for the performer, meet Xavier:
http://www.brisbanebands.com.au/brisbane......ier.html

Is this his account here on the Café? (Xavier from Australia)
http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/bb_pr......ser=7924

And his filming and video editing buddies Sean Mergard and Peter Nguyen:
http://www.peteymajik.com
http://www.seanmergard.com

http://vimeo.com/10969733 (An early trailer for the product hosted on Sean's Vimeo)
http://vimeo.com/5504072 (Sean being generally wack)

Watch out though. Don't lean on them too hard. They look like some tough guys.


The effect is back on the market again, but under a new name "The Revelation Effect".

The reference to the Magic Café profile is for a totally different Xavier. His name is Xavier Moody, and he is a reputable magician/illusionist from the Gold Coast, Queensland, and would never be associated with a dodgy marketing scam in any way. He is currently working a three month contract in Singapore.
I would rather have a bottle in front of me than have a frontal lobotomy.
