I was lucky enough to be the first to use the twist a tronix hands-free system on stage and it's awesome! When I've worked in a routine with my twist n talk I may well upgrade.

Steve, if you don't mind, can I see a picture of the remote for this? I don't see it on your website.

Hi Lou... I don't have a proper system photo yet for this but the Transmitter (remote) is shown in Buster's first TWIST-A-TRONIX tutorial video.... it's bigger than the eraser and meant to look like a BOX full of balloons, or box of "magic dust" (glitter) that makes your character come to LIFE! Here's the tutorial video page http://www.axtell.com/twistins.html

I do see video's and stuff, but at the place I expected the KIDabra video is an empty spot (on my screen, that is...).

It's embedded from Facebook. Perhaps that's the reason... its not a youtube video, but it shows for me. I'll ask them to create a youtube video and I'll embed that. No fun if you can't see it! It's a really funny presentation. Ax

I just love this, Steve! The balloon puppets have such awesome animation characteristics. They bounce about, and appear much more alive than traditional puppets. You might have just created the ultimate "packs small" prop - at least with the manual version. All a performer needs is a pocketful of balloons, and the "T&T" gadget, and you have hours of hilarity on tap.

Just checked the video. Looks great.

Here's a Youtube version of the KIDABRA VIDEO. A bit of background first: This was shot during "An Evening with Steve Axtell" at KIDabra 2012 by Earl Long in the audience on his iPad at the moment I finished showing "TWIST & TALK". Then he picks back up when KIMMO and BUSTER BALLOON came out and presented me with a twisted "Charlie" his vent puppet. He had joked earlier that he's on his 20th Charlie, so in this video he has a solution to make his own now on Twist & Talk. : ) The fun starts when we surprise the audience of magicians when Charlie Starts moving on his own when I set it down...thus introducing "TWIST-A-TRONIX". Okay it's not masterpiece theater but have fun watching it.

I just received my manual Twist & Talk. I had to laugh when I saw it, because, predictably, it's very simple. (Breathes a sigh of relief). Already I'm excited about the prospects of what this little thing can do.

I'll check out the instructional vids tomorrow, and write a full routine hopefully by the weekend.

This is pure gold.

Looking forward to seeing what you do with it! BY THE WAY the Twist-A-Tronix has now been upgraded to have the stronger servo to do puppets too, so it's the same as Hands-Free LITE. made sense to simplfy and combine the two being so similar. They both do puppets and balloons. Ax
