I noticed the matching of the effects yesterday too!

I would consider PORTAL's demo release to beat WMS rather than the opposite. A genuine action that will allow tao to release the effect even if they share the same method.

Besides that, by the time portal's video is uploaded from july I do not see why "Flik" is the "original one". And by the way, we do not even know if the methods are common to judge. Instead we see pretty much identical performances which makes it illogical to say that only the one of them LOOKS AMAZING , exactly because they look the same.

This is an example of parallel inventions and I really do hope that they have different methods as it will prevent many problems that will be caused when the 2 effects will be released. The more I am watching the demos, the more I believe they do.

I've come up with Flick independantly in september 2012 and worked a few months on it before showing it to real people. They loved it so I asked WMS if they want to produce it. That's my story Smile

People seems to like it a lot, I'm really pleased ! More feedbacks from the trailer ? Smile

Thanks !

I think it's visually stunning!
Though I'm keen to see a few more performances in full to get a feel for the whole effect.

After some thinking, it may be applicable to business cards Smile shouldn't be too hard to make one based on the actual gimmick which is provided with the DVD. I made one with my business cards and it looks great !

That demo video was FLIKIN AWESOME!
I really think this is one of the most visual bits of magic I have seen.
I hope it is as cool in the real as it is in the video.
Will add this to my want list!

I am not sure why a performance video is so critical.
The "trick" is what it is.
The demo shows the most important part..the effect. Uncut and CLEAR.
I am not too concerned with patter and routine as I hope everyone comes up with their own ideas. That is the fun part.

I gotta say the Logo font threw me for a loop the first time I read it.
Took me back to my comic book days when Eric Larsen created a character named CLINT FLICKER.
With the proper tight spacing..you get the joke.

How about the reset if you are asked to show it again? I'm probably asking for too much but can you do this again immediately at the same table with another spectator signing a different card from your deck?

Never show an effect a 2nd time for the same people. Golden rule.

The reset is about.. 5 seconds and can be done while walking to another table. I often do it in front of people since they don't see anything and they don't know what I am doing. So you can easily do it in front of people but I do recommend not to show the effect another time as for all the tricks you perform Smile

Penguin Magic has it in stock and ready to ship.

http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/3741

This product also qualifies for PENGUIN FLAT-PACK™ (World-wide free shipping)

I just spent 10 minutes playing with this and what you see on the demo is the real deal.

I just spent 10 minutes playing with it and I can tell you:

The demo is for real...it really is that clean.

-The reset takes 3 seconds

-It comes in blue but it come with enough stuff to make a another gimmick.

-Easy to perform and great for strolling.

I know but I just love tricks where you can safely get away with breaking all the rules.
