Last week I was at a local magic gathering where Randi Rain was showing a new creation of hers to the salivating crowd. I won't tell you what that one was since she hasn't released it to the public yet. But it was first class, funny and a sure fire hit for kids shows! I kept thinking "I've gotta have one of those!"

I've known Randi a long time but didn't know that she had a background of doing special effects in movies. VERY cool! The more I heard about her skills the more impressed I became. The wheels started turning in my head and I thought, "FINALLY! I can get that do-hickey thing I've wanted for years!" I told Randi that I'd email her with an idea I'd had for years and would love to own. She said "sure!" Less than 24 hours later (I think it was maybe 15 hours to be precise) Randi and I had struck a deal, and the wheels were turning!!!

Randi had the parts on the way in the blink of an eye and the next thing I knew they were here and I was getting regular updates on the construction process. I was getting more excited by the minute! Then she said it's done! And then it's already on her website!!

I do a LOT of kids shows. I also do a LOT of adult shows. I can tell you before I hit that button for the first time that this is going to be a "bent over double laugh fest" with the kids & adults!" Absolutely guaranteed!

I have to say a ginourmous THANK YOU to Randi for being the consummate professional from start to finish on this project. Blinding fast speed from concept to a delivered unit. She not only has the skills but she came in under budget and way ahead of schedule. I sound like a broken record but she IS the best!!! On a scale of 1-10, Randi gets 15 for every aspect of this project. Quality of work, communication, price, speed, creative input, attitude, etc....

Like many of you, I own one or more "Lie Detector" units. My favorite is the colander style. I've used it many, many times and love it. It's always a hit. However, it's about to hit the auction block because it can't hold a candle to this new unit of Randi's. It wasn't good for kids since it was so heavy and I was always afraid some adult would tip over and it would go crashing to the ground. No more worries about that thanks to Randi! Now, my Lie Detector routine can pack lighter and play bigger without me worrying about it falling off their head in the middle of the trick. And again, thank you Randi Rain!

Best Wishes!

Carl,

It looks very nice and compact. I like the fact that you can seemingly set it for different functions and that it has different types of sirens. I do not see any type of straps in the picture. Does it hook up in anyway to the child/adult via velcro or do you simply put it next to the person?

While I have my own routines, does it come with any routines?

Good job!

Michael

HI

It's not designed to hook up to the kid or adult. They can hold it or it can be sitting near them (which I actually think will be funnier).

Not sure if Randi is including routines with it. You'll need to check with her.

Get it now before she's backed up on this one! Smile

Thanks for asking!

No routines just yet.

But I was playing with my nieces and nephew the other day with it.

I said it was a dork detector and soon as my nephew walked over to it, I set it off remotely.
Then my niece walked up to it, and I set it off.
My other niece came, and it did nothing.
She was older and I thought she might give it away, so I didn't push any button.

But they kept trying to walk past it without it going off, but I kept hitting the button.

Then I go... "If your cool, it sounds like this."
I kind of strut by the thing and set off a different siren.

Then the older niece had to try.
As she walked by I set off the "cool" siren.
She will be in High School next year, in honor classes, and I totally had her going with this thing.

Then nothing doing... the younger kids had to try to see if they could walk by and set off the cool siren.
But I kept setting off the dork one.

It was so funny.
But then I finally set of the cool siren and they were so happy and impressed with themselves that they were finally cool.

Then they started doing goofy walks just to set off the dork siren.

These things are so much fun!!!

I never even thought of that angle! I have two neieces that are perfect for that routine!!

With the creative mind Randi has working on routines, I can only imagine where this will end up going!!

Randi is on a roll.

I like her Chinese sticks. They make perfect sense, and are open to so many great presentations. Her and Bizzaro's Tetanus is wonderful in appearance and performance. And now this delightful contraption.

Rain is taking the magic world by storm. (Sorry. Couldn't resist. I design and write ads for a living. It's an addiction).
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

I also got TETANUS and her TNT Chinese sticks today. I'm very impressed! Randi will hopefully be interested in some other long-time requests of mine for some fun and unusual tricks and gags. Finding out she is a pro at this was like finding McGiever!!

P.s. Her story of the TNT sticks and blowing up the "parrot" is a riot!!

I hereby endorse ANYTHING that comes from the mind of Randi Rain! She is absolutely BRILLIANT! I own two sets of her torches along with Tetanus and they are top notch! I saw Carl's box (yea that sounds gross) before Carl did and it was top of the line. Not sure what I'd ever use it for, so will likely pass on it, but I can tell you that it's a great prop, and made to last by a performer, for a performer.

If you think the stuff Randi sells is cool...you should see the stuff that she DOESN'T sell! You will be in awe!

One more thing about the genius that "IS" Randi Rain...

She can also make props for you custom. This box she made for Carl was a custom job for him that they decided to release.

I have called on her several times to make custom props for my show. Nothing gives me more pleasure than performing a routine that I know is completely original to only me and my act with custom made props.

Getting to know about Randi's amazing talent in the custom prop area has been a monumental discovery! Idea's I've had for years will finally see the light of day! Plus, it's time to dump some stuff on my magic room shelves that are taking up space so I can get ready for some new, custom, stuff!

I'd like to chime in re; Randi's capabilities. I asked her to create a customized version of her "Anything Detector" and she was FANTASTIC to work with. Quick to answer my questions, easy to work with regarding my customization desires and ultimately A REAL PLEASURE to work with! I've never met Randi but decided to give her a try based on what others have said about her on this forum and I couldn't agree more. A real gem to be certain!!

Full Disclosure Notice: No compensation was offered or paid for this glowing endorsement....BUT I'm certainly open to consider such an arrangement. Randi: Have your people call my person.....

I ordered Randi's Lie Detector and should be receiving by the end of the week or the beginning of next week. I look forward in receiving it. Randi provides terrific customer service.

I was in Randi's workshop during part of the construction of your new toy. It was nothing short of magnificent!!!!

The prop looks very nice and attractive. A very well thought out prop.

Smile
P.S. Wish one could see a video showing the various sound & light effects that are possible with the unit.

Thanks all for the comments.

I have to say the Anything Detector is awesome.
I am so glad Carl started this whole thing.

I had a new thought just today with it.
What if you used in your show as a bad joke detector?
Supposedly to make you a better performer.
Every time you use a bad joke, which magicians do a lot, it goes off.
Then you could start getting mad at it because it goes off on jokes you think are good.
That's all I got so far, but I think it could be funny.

Ustaad...
I'll see what I can do.
