Hello guys


First I hope Steve Brook and his very nice helpers so-called "administrators" will not delete this thread immediately (you can do that very well). As soon as you have written something and your posting is already deleted.

"I do not sell anything here, I just want to clarify something."

Since I've got some PM's in the last two or three days, I'd like to say something.
Currently I am not selling "D-Gimmick".

Maybe I'll sell "D-Gimmick" in the future.
Then I will say this in this forum.



How was D-Gimmick born?

I had the idea how the "D-Gimmick" should look and how "D-Gimmick" must work.
With this idea I was obsessed, because I imagined that must work.
This was about 10 years ago since this idea was born.

My first question was, who can make these gimmicks?

I've talked with Bernd Maucksch, if he can make such "D-Gimmicks" for me.
A better manufacturer when it comes to gimmick cards, I do not know.
For me Bernd is the best gimmick card manufacturer, an absolute master.

I wrote to him as I imagine.
We have experimented a lot, until finally I was satisfied.
After several experiments, "D-Gimmick" was born.

Later, Bernd did´t have time to make "D-Gimmicks" for me.


I asked him to tell me how he made "D-Gimmicks"?
I want to make them myself and they should look as perfect as when he does it.

He gave me the tricks he used in such a production, he told me how he did it.

Without his explanation, I would never create this I believe and I am very grateful to him.

Since then, I am doing it myself.


Thanks Bernd!
P.S.
Bernd, I appreciate your email box will be full from now.




The story goes on.

In the past about 7, 8 years I sold some "D-Gimmicks" in germany.


There is a closed group where I presented my "D-Gimmick" video.
People have seen in the video how D-Gimmick works.
The enthusiasm was amazing, people loved it.
So I have not reckoned, although I know how good "D-Gimmick" is.
But this enthusiasm ..., just incredible.

- "What a fantastic concept and one that had many applications I would love to get my hands on a set when possible ..."

- "Ingenious. Bravo! I hope you find a way to manufacture this. I'd buy some."

- "Great idea and product I really hope you can make it possible for US magicians to purchase them I would definitely buy at least 3 sets"

- " I don't think you will find anything else on the market with the power of these bad boys..I really hope he finds someone to take these in and market them because they are absolutely brilliant, the construction of each card is fantastic if you knew how they were made you would understand the complexity of making them and the amount of time they take to make..he has got a fantastic product here that deserves to be made available to other magicians..
But I can tell you now that because of the way they are made these will come at a premium price. But it would be well worth it."

- " Absolutely brilliant Darko!"

- " Please let us know if you ever market these Darko"

- "Amazing!"


I was able to sell the 80-90 D-Gimmicks on the first day.
I could not believe it, but that was so.
Then came the next day and more people wanted to buy D-Gimmick.
I can not make so many D-gimmicks.
Each D-Gimmick is handmade and very elaborate in manufacturing.


Just to know what is possible with D-Gimmick, just two ideas:

Here is my Impossible Prediction Routine video. This Video is unfortunately only in german language:
https://vimeo.com/61378487

Here is efect:


A Prediction is on the table (black piece of paper).

I turn around, so I do not see what makes the spectator.

I tell the spectator: " cut the deck".
A spectator cut the deck.
At the place, where he cut the deck, he takes three cards and place them face down on the table.
These three cards are placed face down on the table.
Now, he mixes these three cards.
Then he puts a one card in the card case, the other he gives me and the last (third card) he remains with him.

I turn back now. The prediction is opened and the spectator reads the prediction:

Prediction:
- I have the “nine of diamond"
- You have the" Ace of Diamonds "
- In the card case is the" Queen of Spades "

The spectator looks at his card. It really the “nine of diamond"

I look at my card.
This is the "Ace of Diamonds".

The last card that goes into the card case is taken out and it is the "Queen of Spades".

The prediction is perfect!

The deck of cards that is on the table, is turned over and you see that all the cards are blank.


And here is a second, old video.
My X-Ray version.
The video is in german language.
Therefore the description of what happens in the video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S4SHUtlg......OWRNIwuA

The spectator (my son) cut the deck of cards.
He remembers the card where he cut the deck of cards and puts it back on the remaining cards.
The other cards, which are left over, he places on it.
He brings the whole deck of cards with his turned card into the card box.
He concentrates on his card, first on the color, red or black.
Then the card value.
Suddenly I call the card he thinks "Three of Hearts".
It goes on.
I feel at what position his card is in the card box.
I call the number, I tell him I feel your card is in the twenty-fourth position.
He counts the cards one by one until he comes to the twenty-fourth card and that's his card, the "Theree of Hearts".

It would be great if this gimmick can be manufactured by a pro.

I would love to get one of these, whenever they are manufactured.

I have no clue how you did it Smile

So what exactly is the gimmick? What exactly does the gimmick allow you to do? I’m quite confused at this point.

Can the deck be shuffled by the spectator?

I am lucky enough to own one of these gimmicks,I never purchased it from Darko but a while back we shared a couple of our own creations with each other so I built this myself, mine is not perfect by any means because they are really difficult to make but once made it is such a brilliant gimmick. I have been sworn to secrecy so I will not divulge any details about this but if it ever goes into production don't expect to pay a small price for this and I predict it will sell very well

D-Gimmick is a tool with which you force a spectator to cut a deck of cards at a certain position where you want it.
You want to force him a card, for example "two of diamonds" an and he will cut the deck right there.

Someone has said to D-Dimmick:
"D-Gimmick is the next generation of Erisian Deck.
D-Gimmick principle is a completely new level.

I'm confused as to what this thread is about

You started this thread to sell these [?]

You started this thread to talk about something you are not selling [?]

If it is the later - shouldn't it go in another forum [?]

If it is the former - where is the link to buy them [?]

Thanks

Rest assured there would be no hype started if plans were not underway to make the item available!

Hmm) interestingly I would like to buy it! But I would like to learn how to make it myself. If many claim that it is very difficult to manufacture - it does not mean that it is difficult for everyone. I have a lot of experience in making micro things.
I love the magic & history of magic! My favorites magicians - Dai Vernon, Max Malini, Fielding West, Michael Finney, Jeff Hobson, Bob Sheets, Nick Lewin, Harry Murphy, Dick Oslund- great showmen of magic!

You can force a spectator to cut wherever you want impromptu, why use a gimmick? no offense

I do not know what the trick is. But the answer is simple - it will be interesting for magicians - who like to dig in new methods. Smile
Magic is art - and the more you know the more opportunities to combine methods and create new effects.

I believe the D-Gimmick is very similar to Card-Sharks's Magneato cards. However, they are far superior and more versatile because they are MUCH, MUCH stronger. I believe I read on FB that his gimmick could "hold" about 30 cards.
But it is my understanding that Darko has no plans to try and mass produce these.
He just likes to taunt us. Smile
