Excellent! It might be a nice gesture to send an email to those who purchased. I checked the site each day for quite a while and finally gave up. I would not have known that the section was open if I had not checked this thread.

Nonetheless, glad to see that things are back on track!

We kept track of all magicians who bought Science Friction using our online shop so that we would be able to inform them. (Nevertheless there were some purchases at conventions and now over some dealers, where we don´t have their contact details.)

I just opened up the Member area and you are the first one in. The others will get an email notification also, for sure.

Thanks, Christian. I enjoyed my first visit, and look forward to the successful future of the site. I am also glad to hear that your health has improved, at least enough to rejoin the forums.

Per discussion on the Genii forum - try using an SF card for Red Hot Moma/Chicago Opener.

Would be nice if they would market a trial size.
If it's as good as advertised, they will sell tons more to satisfied customers!

Actually all they would need to do is to market at a low cost some sample cards treated with the stuff along with some suggested applications and instructions on how to handle the cards. That way people could see the results for themselves, and Card Shark wouldn't have to go to the expense of manufacturing new arisol sprays.

Plus, the size can they give you is enormous considering how little you have to use to treat a card and the fact that for an effect you're usually only treating one or two cards.

But let me tell you, I just bought the stuff on the chance that it would enhance a trick I've been working on, and it worked like a dream. So I was able to ditch the double stick tape and use the science friction spray instead and achieve the same result. Plus the cards separate easily with no sound at all and with no effort. The treated cards don't gather lint so I can keep them in my pocket until I need to ring them into the deck, and not have to worry about the cards losing their grip.

If you like to work with gaffs this stuff is fantastic.

In my opinion it is as good as advertised. (Though the use of the word 'nano' seems a bit off, since in the states it's usually associated with microscopic sized particles that have been engineered in a certain way. I think they meant it as implying that you only have to use a tiny amount to treat a card-literally one light pass of the spray is enough)

I heard from a friend that anecdotal evidence is actually quite reliable.

Here at FISM we just release two spin-off effects called One Card Collector and Delicious Ambitious. The will be online available next week on my website. Come with treated cards as well as a streamlined DVD of Science Friction where only one trick is explained but all the other effects of Science Friction are shown. Each effect costs 15$, so this should really help to find out in an affordable way how good it is.

All the others who signed in for Science Friction will get an email soon so that they can get a treated sample card for just the postage. At least I am able to realize that soon.

That sounds like an excellent idea, I hope you sell a lot.

I bought it when it was first released. It is as good as it is advertised. It does exactly what they say it will do.
We are inclined to believe those whom we do not know because they have not yet deceived us...

Is it dangerous to touch the stuff before it dries completely to the skin?

Well, I am not a doctor, you definitrly should not inhale it, but I sprayed myself with it several times (accidentally) and still feel ok. Maybe I will collapse one day and this would have a thousand reasons.

Regarding being harmful to the skin and you would feel it directly: no. There is no itching, you can rub it off if you want.

Like any aersol it is best to use in an open space and not inhale directly.

There should be a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) data sheet provided or at least available for download with all the health information regarding the product.

Everything necessary to be declared, including safety and health issues have to be printed on the label. And that is.

What you will not find but maybe it should when sold in the USA: don't heat the can in your microwave, don't use it as hairspray for a solid new look, don't spray it under your shoes to get more grip during winter season. And also: don't spray it onto yourself.

But when I am asked: magicians have more (clever/stupid) ideas I could ever dream of.

LOL! Smile

You go Christian!

But on a much more serious note...

1. Can I use SF as an effective deodorant? Especially before a big gig?

2. Can Science Friction be used to add a little "spice" in the bedroom? Smile

Spray enough and it can be used as a virtual condom. Try it! Smile
