I just found this levitation ...

It looks like we are all know but the ad says "it's an exclusive improvement for self-levitation"!

Anybody knows more about it?

Here we go again.

This looks awful,I'm willing to bet that it is simply magnets.

If anyone actually buys this for $50.00,I will be amazed.

With Mr. Allens habit of "borrowing" other peoples material,I would avoid this.

I fully Agree.

The Ad states - "You get four powerful gimmicks . . ."

I purchased a similar lev at Abbott's years ago, actually EXACT same effect, (But gimmick may be different) and in all honesty, I can come up much higher off the ground than he does.

To me, somehow, this did not look good. First thing that is off is the fact that he starts of with both shoes suspiciously together.

Shame to see things like this re-hashed over and over again with an exciting new name.

Can this be done surrounded? Does it come with the shoes? Is the hilarious patter licensed with the product. If so, do you actually have to say."Whoa! Hello!"?

If it is like similar gimmicks,you can't do it surrounded. Generally when there is any kind of cover like in this "levitation",everyone needs to be in front.

Exactly. You can go a little higher in the levs that use a cloth cover, but the trade off is that you have to use that hokey cloth to cover yourself. In most other levs, you don't need a cover, but sadly, you can only rise two or three inches above the occasion.

Now, if someone can combine the best features of both general methodologies, find a way to do it with NO COVER and go up a couple feet off the ground, then I'd say that person will probably get rich.

But there's always that trade off. Or some other nonsense, like it can only be done on TV, one time performance aka Criss Angel.

Agreed. But still there is still that cursed trade off.

This is actually a step backward in self-levitation methodology. ;-)

If you need a cloth I would just use Fearsons FF and use my coat.
