The trailer is fantastic! I will watch it now 10 times in a row together with popcorn and beer.

The video is beautifully shot, in a 'doesn't show you anything about what the handling actually looks like' kind of way:)

I don't do readings, so I'm mainly interested in how this would translate into a stage setting without a table. Could I hold the box out for someone on the front row to step forward and drop a business card inside while I turn my head away, then just place the box down on a chair to one side?

Caliban,

The Mind's Eye Box is my version of Theodore Annemann's Devil Device but with a completely different principle. It does the same as the original was designed to do and more (Please see the description on http://www.thegrismerlock.com/the-minds-eye-box-p-312.html
My personal handling is exactly as the video, although the final revelation by the summoning of the beautiful spirit, the brief time reversal and the remote viewing through the eyes of the participant, is purely optional Smile
Primarily produced as a one on one utility device, with proper handling it would work very easily as you have described. Please feel free to pm me to elaborate.

I was very fortunate to receive this wonderful device a short while ago. Let me say, that this box is of top craftsmanship not to mention the handling is dead simple. When I first received the box, I had a little bit of a laugh as far as the method goes, it's just that simple but that's what makes it so devious. In the box I carry an old pendulum, a deck of cards, an old pack of tarot cards and a picture of my late grandfather from WWII. The box is part of my presentation that my grandfather left to me with some contents inside, this is what really allows me to create an emotional experience and connection with the spectators.

As far as construction of the box itself, as I said, it's fantastic! Inside mine, is the newspaper print which helps sell my presentation of the box. The finish is smooth and the operation that makes all the magic happen is flawless. I must also comment on customer service. I asked Paul if it was possible to have by a certain date and he delivered without question. Paul and I sent many messages back and forth and I must admit he is one of the kindest guys I have ever talked to. There are a few people in the business that build custom props for us that are just a joy to work with and without a doubt, Paul is one of them.

If you're sitting on the fence about this one, do yourself a favour and pick it up, you won't be disappointed.

Thank you very much Darren.

I am pleased that you are getting on so well with your Mind's Eye Box Smile

As each MEB is made to order and due to a high influx of orders this week, it will be approximately 10-14 days from point of order to date of despatch, instead of our ideal 7 day average.

My box just arrived. It is absolutely gorgeous and I was smiling to myself when I played with the workings - simple, elegant, devious. A big thanks to Paul for his speedy service despite being flooded with orders. As far as hand crafted props go, this is beautiful work.

I have been assembling a few more pieces to go with this and will prepare a special performance manual for the box.

Cheers

Received mine last week. As others have said, the workmanship is top-notch. Paul is a pleasure to work with.

The box itself does exactly what you need it to. And the secret may take you by surprise. Upon seeing the workings, I was a both amused and taken aback by the simplicity. This is something that I'm glad to add to my arsenal... and will be making a special place for it in my performances. I ordered mine without the "Eye or Horus" design, but I did opt for the newspaper lining. For my purposes, I didn't immediately want any kind of metaphysical connection. For me, if anyone asks about the box itself, then I plan to say that it is an old 'comments' box from a hotel.

One word to those thinking of purchasing. Paul provides you with a nice amount of blank cards (normal double blank playing cards) to get you started. It will also take standard size business cards... but using business cards can sometimes (in my practice sessions) produce inconsistant results due to their tendency to bend/warp. If you are dead set on using business cards for your routine, then make sure that you are using a quality stock and that you are storing the cards so that they don't go out of shape.

I would certainly recommend Paul's "Mind's Eye Box" those interested in this type of device.

This looks really beautiful!
The price is a little high, thanks to the dollar! By all means, looks to be well worth it though.
I am thinking of so many ways to use this with other effects. This is on my "Want" list for sure!

I am filming a routine with this in the autumn, inspired by Mexico, fuelled by this box....It really is beautifully made and can be customised to your liking...

Very impressed with this.

Cheers

Thank you Perry.

Mike, thank you for getting in touch. I will chat with you next week on Skype and discuss your requirements.

Hi Todd.
You very kindly described your excellent ideas for the Mind's Eye Box to me and I am really looking forward to seeing the routine on film.

All the best,

Actually.....after some further experimentation, I have found that my one sided business card works best.....just had to trim it down a bit for a good fit.....

Thank you aligator.
It was a pleasure dealing with you and I know you will do it justice.
I have pm'd you further details of the cards but I personally use the back of my business cards, remove it from inside the Mind's Eye Box as an afterthought and the end of the reading and give it my sitter as a reminder of their experience Smile
