Highlights of Some of Wraith’s abilities.



Applications:
• Real Time PK-Touch Routines:
- Openly touch one participant and another stands up (up to 80 meters away)
- Touch your own shoulder and both participants stand up
- Touch one participant and have up to 4 other participants feel it.
• Remotely ring a hotel bell that can be immediately examined
• Remotely snuff out a candle

In addition, Christopher has decided to include two very special routines that he has kept to himself for quite some time:
1) "Psychic Hide and Seek"
Suitable for stage, parlour or close-up (even walk-around) and uses no chairs: Two standing participants agree to play a game of Hide and Seek in which one hides in an imaginary hotel room with a number on the door known only to him or her. The performer guides the other participant (the “Seeker”) into the mind of the “Hider” counting off the room numbers. At the very moment the secret room the performer names the secret number, the “Seeker” calls out "Found You!"

2) "Qi Touch". As shown on the above video clip, Qi Touch is an application of Wraith that can vastly increase the impact of your favorite metal bending techniques. Two versions are taught: with, and without, pre-performance set up.

(Pre-Order Prices in effect until November 15/12)

Was this ever reviewed?

Can someone perhaps elaborate how Wraith compares to Loughrans Phantom Slave.

Thanks.

Ok, let's try this again.

Can somebody please shed some light on those effects and how different they are?

Any PM's are welcome.

Thanks.

I'm a little in the dark as to what we are getting with this unit. I guess those in the know are familiar with the technology, but I'm don't know how a single unit can accomplish such a wide span of effects.
The difficult must become easy, the easy beautiful and the beautiful magical.

Wraith I believe only allows one touch while Phantom can do multiple.
Not sure but I like to know if someone here as one or the other and can
elaborate how reliable it is.

A few words on the theatrical principle behind my creation of Real Ghost (predecessor to Wraith) and now Wraith. They were designed with the idea in mind of creating a real time PK Touch where the very instant one person is touched, someone else feels it and to show the instant they feel it by standing up or raising a hand. To my knowledge, I was the first to attain this. Wraith was also built to create the illusion that you can project energy across a room with a visual indication (like suddenly moving your hand) and have someone feel it at the moment of that visual indication. In other words, to create stunning visual miracles. I designed Wraith with the firm belief that to create more touches after the first touch is to dilute the real-time aspect of the effect, to dilute the miracle into a puzzle or a trick. Wraith can and does create all of the effects shown on the demo video clip (http://www.taylorimagineering.com/products/wraith.php).

Regarding a comparison between Phantom and Wraith, I am not at liberty to discuss the workings of Peter's device but I will happily describe how Wraith works in detail if you send me a PM.

All the best,

Christopher

Morgan Strebler recently became aquatinted with my work at the 2014 MindVention. This was his comment on Wraith:

“The most revolutionary method of PK Touch I’ve ever seen.”

Thanks, Morgan.

I can attest to the effectiveness of both Real Ghost and now Wraith.

There's nothing like the gasps you get, when you touch one person and another person across the room feels it and stands up.
Awesome piece of kit.

I have just used Wraith in 27 shows in the past 2 weeks. It was overwhelmingly the favorite part of the programs based on the responses to the survey I sent out afterwards. I use two so I can have a total of 3 volunteers for my routine. I will be picking up a third at ECSS in January as a backup as these will now be a staple in my show going forward.

Highly recommended and Christopher is excellent to deal with - any and all questions I had were responded to extremely quickly either by email or phone call.

Could you do a second touch in the same routine and if so would the reset be fast and invisible for the second one ?
