According to the blurb on Murphy's site Rasmus' effect has a:

"100% original and never before published method"

If that is true, then it should be different to all other previous methods. Although watching the video I can see how people think it looks similar to Gauci's trick. I'll guess we'll find out in a few days if the advertisement it true or not.

Yes, it still works. The spec can immediately put the ball in the pocket.
On the download you will also find a 3 Choice effect.

No, the actually method of judging which hand contains the object doesn't really on the sense of sight.

It happens to me every now and then and it actually makes the effect even better. I use SS and a ring so there's always a way out.


In a one on one performance, you would have to do 'the business' to both of the spectator's hands to know for certain if they have tried to catch you out by placing the hidden object in their pocket.

I spent quite a bit of time with Rasmus while he was bringing this effect to the market and have seen him slay people with it. Even when you know the method, it appears as if he isn't employing it. Very strange! There is a very slight learning curve or 'awareness of ones movements' to take into account before performing this consistently, but it doesn't take long to get 'the feel' of it.

How does this compare to Scan 3D, besides a huge gap in price and different methods? Has anyone thought about it?

I was thinking of purchasing the Promystic Scan 3D (which I can see, read and have heard is phenomenal) but saw this come out.

Thanks for anyone's help in advance!

Cheers!

Does anyone happen to have any insight as to when this will be hitting retailers?
I pinged Penguin via chat and while they have it open for pre-order, they don't have any info on ETA yet.

I believe 6/09

I thought I had read the 9th, but if that were accurate I would have thought Penguin would have had a date by now... Given its 2 days away.

Pretty confident I'm going to pre-order regardless. Smile

If electronics is what you considered Arie, did you also see FK? Cheaper then Scan...but looking at a non electronic, this appears to be the way to go...

Provided the different objects are prepared and made ready to be sensed Smile - - - As I understand and speculate the concept behind this effect.

As already mentioned by others, this SEEMS to be a reworked effect and hence I feel $60 retail is big money for what you will probably be getting. However the pricing of an effect is the sole prerogative of the creator/producer/distributors of the effect.

If my thinking is on the right track, this will be one easy to do project for the DIYers. And because of the high retail price tag on this effect, one shall soon see it on the Chinese Magic sites at a fraction of the cost.

Just my thoughts, please continue . . . Smile

The ad states "100% original and never before published method"

I find this hard to believe. If this uses the method I think it uses than this has been done before in almost every variation possible.
