Ben, are you the same guy Patrick credited with the idea for Prevaricator?

I believe it now resides in the Smithsonian.

Overwhelmed with the positive response here. Look for there to be a fair amount of bonus material included with the download. Lots of different permutations and handlings (some of which are completely hands-off by the performer while his or her back is turned), theory discussion, and different presentational themes
will be explored.

I also like to echo what landmark already wrote.
Fantastic and no surprise as Patrick mentioned your work and thoughts within Prevaricator several times!
I fooled the hell out of a friend and colleague by just using the which hand sequence again and again.
He was flabbergasted. I felt the same after watching your demo.
Can't wait to hear or read more from you. Smile

I received an advanced copy of "Polygraph" (Thanks Ben!) , and I must say that this is an example of good routining, thinking and simple approach to maximize the test condition environment of the performance.

Congratulations, if your underground work is just like this piece, I am sure that Mentalism will advance Smile

In a few weeks. I'm a college professor (at two different colleges) and am in the death throws of finals weeks until after the 19th. Patrick and I will get together as soon as possible after that to complete the filming, and it should be ready shortly thereafter.

I also have to make up some props for some other presentations that will be included, and I'm trying to source materials for that.

Ben, 2013 is your year---you were Researcher of the Year at your University, and I feel that this now will be the routine of the year---it is a fooler! Great job, buddy!

Regards,
Mike

That researcher of the year is, coincidentally, a different Ben Blau. Not me in this case! LOL

Also included will be a routine which allows you to walk up to a complete stranger, and ask him or her to think of their star sign and favorite color. You go on to prove you know both, without asking a single question. It uses a related methodology to Polygraph, so it will be on there as a bonus, as well as a few others.
