But it doesn't matter, does it? There's a live take, which also shows the switch. The issue isn't over a perfectly executed MF, the product is the switch of an MF'd card. Crikey, he's doing a rather good job of calmly answering people on this thread.

The only thing that worries me is that the instructional DVD will have a high "pretty much" quotient. If Shin could reassure me that this is not the case, I would be tempted to buy it after release. Smile

Now I'm interested to see this come out. When certain people speak, the wise man listens.

I reserved any contribution to this thread until I knew what the workings were. Does it look like trick photography and camera tricks? It should! That's what it looks like in real life. I don't exactly blaim the skepticism, but some have taken it beyond that and others have clung to it for their smugness. Now that I have witnessed it in person... Ok, I'll bide my tongue rather than add salt to the wounds.

This isn't just as good as you see it. It's better than that. Better because in performances where you don't need to impress overly cautious magicians, this device can do things so deceptive that no lay audience could keep up. No audience in real time, no audience who sees it on TV (evidence how badly you all were fooled) and no audience who could capture it on their phone cameras.

Imagine that. A switch so dynamite that you can offer to have your audience film it, and they will see exactly what just fooled the pants off you magicians.

This is a game changer. Plain and simple, this is a game changer.

So the question for those in the know is whether this trick will play in the real world like it does in the official trailer I.e.an invisible switch at finger tips.

Only slightly less impressive are the rough videos which show a full palm cover for the switch , and that version has the benefit of at least fitting in with the laws of physics.

The difficulty as I see it with the first video is that it's not likely to be achievable every time in performance conditions..again thoughts on this would be welcome.

As I said, Rasmus likes to practice stuff before shoving it out onto YouTube. I'm like that too. How about you?

Best thing would be for an official review from somebody that bought it instead of all the speculation.

After talking with Shin about The Switch, this is my take on his effect :

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1L2eL0ZQdFI

I want to mentioned that the sleight I use is different from the one Shin explain on the DVD and the gimmick is 95% the same !
But the video is here to show you that it's COMPLETLY possible to use this effect in real condition (only one take to make the video...) without misdirection, duplicate card, etc... and it's very beautiful for your audience and to perform !!

Very well done jordan I think this shows in a very fair manner, that this effect really works. you chose the easy way, and that's good. now people with less skills then shim see exactly, that they can also do this effect without any problem

thumbs up Jordan
