Here's the status. We are in the final manufacturing stage. Our CNC machine shop is working on finishing our order. They are making the precision parts that will become the LIghtning Box. I've been very hands on during the process checking samples for fit and finish. We're on schedule.

After we receive the parts we do have to assemble them into finished Lightning Boxes. This is assembly is done one at a time. Right now we can only estimate the time it will take to do the actual assembly and packaging.

Our goal is the ship on September 26. We may be a few days early or a few days late. Please be patient. Perfection takes time. We'll do our best to meet our goal but quality control trumps fast.

Bob,

This looks great! Excellent method! Now I only wish I had a spare $160 to send your way! Ah well! Another one for the wish list!

Regards,

Martin.

Yes, the bonus effect is called "Invisible Lightning". It's uses the Q-Quantum Connection. The choreography and handling combined with "the Q" is simply stunning. The audience is only aware of one card. Every action is completely motivated. The result is a show stopper.

There are many problems with trailers but one issue is that many people watch a trailer and make an instant judgement only on what the trailer shows.


Isn't that what trailer demo's are for?

When I watch a movie demo on television, it's decided from watching the trailer if I want to go watch the whole movie. Same goes for magic tricks and props. Otherwise why do magic creator's,dealers, and producers make them? They make them with the intentions that the trailer will lead people to purchase the product.

Yes,but it seems to me that sometimes the trailer is designed to help you make an
informed decision [as with the Lightning box] but sometimes it's just there to
try and get your money!

Yes, "Q" and special Faux gold impregnated playing cards that make the lightning box run smoother. Only $60 a pack. Totally examinable

I've put out many products and DVD's over the years but I've never really integrated another manufacturers product with mine before.

But the Q-Quantum Connection is so good and works so well with the Lightning Box I simply had to put the two together. It is a marriage made in heaven. The two products used together provide workers with an incredibly powerful routine that is easy to do, resets in seconds and is totally practical.

I predict that the Invisible Lightning routine will be come one of the most used routines for working professionals for everybody from strolling magicians to trade show performers to formal close up showmen.

It works in any type of show and just kills.

Looks pretty darn close to Mark Leveridge's " Lightning Ring Box"

The lighting ring box is not even close to the Kohler product...I have spoke to Bob on this product many times and I got to tell you this is going to be a killer close up routine so many ways to present the effect with unlimited presentation options.......if you have had any of Bob's CNC products you know the quality we are talking about here, I will mention the FA gimmick......


Cheers

Hmmmm let me see, "The Lightning Box" won't be released until the end of September. Do you own the "Lightning Ring Box" by Leveridge? All I'm saying is that Mark Leveridge's box has been out for many years and they both have the name "Lightning"
in their title. Mark Leveridge demos his box using a ring but they look VERY similar in methodology. Whether they are or not, it's funny they are using the same name for a very similar effect. (check out the demo video on the site listed above)

I too wish the best for Bob's products and the quality of his products are never in question. "If" Mark Leveridge's product was used as an inspiration, he should be given credit. (if it was)

I'm just disappointed that I can't find the video for this thing. Sounds intriguing and I like how it looks better than the Kennedy box.

If you put a ring in the Lightening Box, is it then a Lightening Ring Box?

If the word "lightning" was used commonly in the past to describe these types of switching devices, that's one thing.

If that's not the case, I have no idea why Bob would use a similar name intentionally, especially when we know his views on protecting products.

The only similarity between the Leveridge Lightning Ring Box and The Lightning Box from Bob Kohler is the word 'lightning'.

I don't mean anything by this but how do you know?? The Lightning Box hasn't even been released yet!! Do you own Leveridge's Box?? Hard to make that statement then.
Again...I wish Bob the best,I just saw a strong similarity and BTW other things can be loaded other than a ring. I just found it ironic is all.
