Pablo:

My guess is that a post/thread consisting to nothing more than a link to an external ad (the review is little more than an ad for this product!) isn't a valid post. That is probably why it vanished.

Given that, the presentations of this sound interesting.

It does look very interesting, a nice original take on an old trick.

A few weeks ago I buy this video from Kenton.
The video promo looks very interesting and a great update of the old "sucker trick"


Price : $10 at http://wonderwizards.vittyo.com/


Original Description:



Kenton's Automatic Imp
Three novel effects in one online video.
Due to popular demand there may be delays in ordering, due to technical overload. Just keep trying. If you have experienced these problems in the past, don't worry, just try again. If there are continued delays we will send you an email once things are back to normal. Thank you for your understanding, it is worth the wait! You should be able to order easily at this time.

Automatic Imp

An Imp Bottle acts like nothing seen before! A small bottle is shown and said to grant wishes. The Genii in the bottle is awakened and the spectator's dream is energized. The bottle stands up, follows the performer's finger around, looks in the direction the performer points, wiggles back and forth as if laughing when a tickle motion is made in the air, and more.
After much byplay the spectator is shown that their dream cannot be kept down now that it is energized, and the bottle is given away as an important souvenir.
Kenton recently performed this for a 40th birthday celebration and gave the Imp Bottle as his sole present to the person turning 40. They later wrote:
"Kenton, your gift of that Genii Bottle was the highlight of my 40th birthday."
What more needs to be said?


Everyday Animated Object

The Automatic Imp works on other objects too! Demonstrated and taught on the video is how a Tootsie Pop can be made to rise, move, be "tickled", follow the finger, and even balance precariously on the edge of the performer's hand, before being handed out for examination.
This is a perfect weerd or spooky effect, great with Halloween candy. Do it at a party or before you hand out the candy to freak out Trick or Treaters!
Performed seriously, this is also a fine mentalism demonstration that has been known to make more than one person into a believer.

Imp Readings

Yes, you read that correctly. A mentalism and readings effect that is visual, commercial, convincing and has fooled every mentalist who has seen it performed.
Three Imp Bottles with different sigils are placed on a table. The mentalist turns his or her back and can even leave the room. One bottle is selected and energized in the spectator's hand. The spectator then places the bottle back so that it appears just as the others do, and the chosen one cannot be noticed.
The mentalist returns to pick up the bottles. All three remain standing. Then one by one the bottles that do not relate to the spectator's secret desire fall over due to a "lack of energy". The bottle that remains standing is indeed the one representing the spectator's secret issue!
The bottle that relates to the spectator's problem is then energized and given to the spectator as a souvenir if desired.
This is worth the price of admission for mentalists as the way Kenton has developed Knowing which issue is thought about is very devious and entirely unique.
Never again will you consider the Imp Bottle a "lowly prop". Automatic Imp can also be performed with items besides an Imp Bottle. Once you learn the simple but diabolical basics, the principles can be applied in numerous ways.



My comments :

As you know, old magic tricks plus deeper thinking can be powerful stuff ( All the work from Docc Hilford and others) , and now the work of Kenton in the classic Imp Bottle is a great new example for that.

Profound moments that transcend the visual effect and gave a great fulfil experience.

3 different demonstrations ( even a reading !. What more cool than that !) and great simple ideas that you could add for any routine in your repertoire.

For 10 bucks is really a bargain.

Rate : 9/10

Thanks one more time Kenton for your ideas !
