I did wonder.

I tried to make my own to play with thinking I have seen what is happening in the video and it works pretty good but probably not as good as the real one from David. So I will be buying it when I can see it in real life, maybe at a dealer day. Its a very clever idea I think.

How did you manage to get it today?

There's no postal service and magic shops are closed. Hmmm.

He he, fair enough. Smile

I bet it's brilliant. Dave always does fantastic DVDs to accompany his products IMHO. His routining is superior compared to most.

David has certainly thought this one through. The 'advanced handling' is very pretty indeed, although it doesn't cover all angles. The regular handling is pretty much bomb proof.

There's also a bit of a 'Paper Crane moment', which is nice.

I think many of us guessed correctly what was going on, so essentially you'll be buying the correct sized box and the handling, plus some useful materials with which to customise it.

Mine arrived today and my first impressions are that it does exactly what it says on the tin. The illusion is perfect and I have absolutely no qualms about using it close up. I will be testing this out with my CUPP over the next few days.

I can't get the illusion to quite work. It's all about the angle in my experience. What angle should the be looking at it from?

Hi there

As previously described, the angles are pretty much bomb proof unless you have someone laying on the floor. The basic handling can be viewed from pretty much every angle that a spectator would watch the routine from in normal performing conditions.

Take another look at the basic handling on the dvd and try it out on a friend. If need any more info feel free to pm me.

The response has been incredible, so thank you to everyone who has already purchased. It is great that now people are seeing first hand, all the design features that make this mini illusion so convincing.

Cheers

mark southworth's box has a more 3 dimensional look to the folded up card but you need an extra "tool" to reset the gimmick and it can be troublesome to find and use unless you choose to install the tool into your card box or another object.

Tried this out close up with the CUPP and it worked a charm. As far as justifying the box, I simply said that what I was about to do was so impossible that I wanted to make things as fair as possible. I mentioned the Randi challenge and explained that to meet the conditions of the Randi challenge the prediction needed to be in a sealed glass case. I then brought out the box and said "this was as close as Toys R Us could manage".

I further had the box isolated under a pint glass and the spectators hand was placed on top. Everyone agreed that this was completely fair. After getting the numbers I had one person hold onto the pad with the numbers, I had the other person lift the pint glass with one hand and the lid with the other (making it impossible for him to remove the contents himself).

The illusion of the ticket coming out of the box is perfect and all eyes were on the ticket, the box was basically invisible the moment that ticket came out of it. Everyone wanted a look at the ticket, not one person wanted to look at the box. The ticket being in full view before the numbers were selected definitely added to the effect.
