Dear Gilbert,
Sorry to hear you feel outraged by Alarmed. I would just like to say Predictor was a fantastic effect and I lots of fun performing it until it become unavailable.
We research every effect before we go to all the expense of manufacture.
I was totally aware of your predictor effect and it’s credited on the Alarmed DVD. The Idea of using the digital numbers for a prediction pre dates Predictor by many, many years and is in no way unique to your effect.
Alakazam Magic never knowingly plagiarise any effect. We pride ourselves on releasing good quality magic to our wonderful fraternity and have done for over 20 years!!
If you feel you have been wronged in any way please feel free to contact me directly.

Yours Sincerely

Peter Nardi

I just wanted to ALARM ;o) the magic community that it is prefeable to boycott the thieves for the good of the creatives and the magicians who are in need.

This my new trick. But If anybody stole my creations, why continue ?

Did they give credit to your effect? Looking at the hype and positive reviews in here, I have to assume they will have some credits regarding to Alarmed. Hope this can be settled quickly.

Mr Nardi,

Thank you to your views on this subject which for me is still a big injury!

First my trick is called PREDICTA and not Prédictor, never mind...

Then, please, could you give us the name of another trick which uses the technique used for PREDICTA (and therefore ALARMED) with the digits?

Third, it is enough to surf a few seconds to find my trick PREDICTA for sale on the net.

Digital Deception by Marc Oberon.
But I don't know whether this was released before or after Predicta...

Hi Gilbert,

Predicta is fantastic, I loved the effect and I performed it for some
time. I don't know if you have seen the Alarmed DVD but Predicta is
credited and as I'm sure you are aware there have been effects
manipulating the digital display for many years which goes back at least as far as Mind, Myth and Magick. In fact, I first came across the exact core method when I worked part time in a shoe shop 20 years ago, which is exactly th same as Predicta.

On a seperate note, I have just seen your Scribbo effect. It's a weird
twist of fate but the effect appears to have an "awful" lot in common
with my Biopic effect which I sold the rights to Alakazam 4 years ago
and has been performed on television several times
http://noelqualter.com/video/. I have performed the effect all around
the world and have shown it to a host of the best magicians and
mindreaders in the world including David Berglas, Luke Jermay, David
Williamson, Armando Lucero, Darwin Ortiz, Chad Long and many, many
others.

I'd be interested in your thoughts about this. Perhaps you can PM me so we can discuss this as gentleman as I have no wish to expose anything here.

Noel

I'd love to hear the conclusion as I've read some disputes here and solved in decent manners.

If the prinicple behind the trick was published before, and it seems it was, then the dispute should be over. I'm kind of surprised when people flame like this on an open forum without first contacting the other party and doing a little more research.

I agree with Cameron

I believe Noel has done everything properly and went beyond the call of duty by including a credit on the DVD.

Predicta is great, Alarmed is great, Digital Deception is great. Now can we all just get along please.
