That's cool! Thanks for sharing. Im a little dubious though. I wonder if it sits/lies properly when trying to use it. If anyone gets this or has used it can you let us know what you think.

Cheers,

Dave.

Cool whiteboard! I love portable props like that. Once again, places that sell office supplies are the best places to shop for mentalism.

They also have it at Amazon: http://tinyurl.com/k73b4o3

There's no reviews at Amazon yet, and the price seems to be better at ThinkGeek.

I agree that it looks nice and serves a purpose in the real world.

However, take this out of the real world and place it in a performing scenario and my guess would be that the average person that had not come across this before, might assume that it is somehow packed with electronics. I do have a tendency to over think things though.

In some lightnings, whiteboards are useless. You can destroy the timing on your routine by showing your revelation and listen
"Hey mindreader, I cant see a thing!"


Nice prop for the right time although.

I fail to see the point in using this thing that looks like a gimmick but isn't.

Why not a plain old whiteboard or better yet a blackboard that has no glare.

Seems like one of those things that techies love just for the novelty.

I guess I'm just getting old. It's probably just me.

If you click through to the YouTube hosting and read the sarcastic comments that people are posting, you get a very clear idea of how Average Joe in the audience is going to perceive this thing if you use it in a routine.

This looks like garbage - toy would certainly be the correct word. Yuck

It's not just you, Andre. I feel exactly the same way. I can imagine someone doing a drawing dupe routine with two of these - and the audience wondering, "How do those things work?"

I think if you were to use this in a routine it would just scream gimmick to the layman even though its not.
By failing to prepare, we are preparing to fail.

Do blackboards really take up that much room?
