Since our electronic based magic props are generally used for short and intermittent duration, we should soon see Li-Ion and other such rechargeable batteries getting replaced with Supercapacitors/Ultracapacitors as the new power source. Supercapacitors has an extremely short charging time with almost infinite recharging capability and with a life expectancy of over 25 years. Supercapacitors are devoid of all the problems of a Li-Ion battery.

If I am not wrong, I believe that such a beginning (use of a Supercapacitor) has alreday been made by one of our electronic genius, Craig Felicity, in his 'Real Die Rechargeable' prop.

Have a look at a couple of such batteries:-

Ustaad ... When you say "soon see replacements" are we talking Months, Years, ? Additionally, after checking out the links you provided, It seems our current devices will be incompatible with these more suitable options. Pity, as I like the sound of the 'Brave new world' you describe Smile ..

Cheers.

@ Bad jelly: Well 'soon' could be any time from a day to years. Smile However as per my knowledge and info, electronic design engineers have already started using the Supercapacitor as a power source for low energy electronic device. And one good example is (as to the best of my knowledge and understanding) that Crag Felicity is already using Supercapacitors in one of his props mentioned in my above post.

IMO, all current devices will work till they die their natural death. Smile Probably when the general rechargeable batteries die (in older devices) they may be replaced with suitable rated Supercapacitors. However its time that creators of electronic based magic props look into the use of Supercapacitors as the main power source. The biggest advantage of the new power source is they last almost a life time and can be recharged at a fraction of the time than those other conventional rechargeable batteries need. For example Craig's 'Real Die Rechargeable' just needs 2 minutes to fully recharge. Compare this to other similar dice needing an hour or more to recharge.

Aah, I feel like kicking myself for starting this Supercapacitor topic. So please let's get back on to the main 'Spectro Touch' topic. Smile Thank you.

Please don’t worry about getting off topic for a bit. You were asked to. I thought it was very interesting and I’m sure many others did. So thank you.
Please check regularly if you are becoming the type of magician Jerry Seinfeld jokes about.

Fellow Spectro users...where is the best place to place the remote to be able to feel the vibration in delay mode? It seems that I can't seem to find the right place to feel the vibration nice and strong! No funny places please 😂

Lots of great info here and think I’ll jump over the fence. If used in combination with several other methods. I love D’angelos touch and while it’s bold, enjoy the principle. I think this could complement it.

I concur .. and could not have stated it better. I'll simply add my thanks to Ustaad for the as always, insightful posts. I learned new facts. Always good.

Cheers.

May hhave found the perfect "stuff". Stronger than the original, cheaper, looks ideal. With a new piece I did more than 20 jumping jacks with it in place and it held strong. Message me for the amazon link.

I hate to bring up the issue of tape concerns again... But, it seems to me that adding a pin/hook to the unit should be easy enough using a hot glue gun ?

I am just considering to my the unit and like others I am concerned about tape. I do know that a hooked coin is very easy to put on and take off.
Am I crazy ? Did anyone try adding a pin / hook ?

PS: I believe another post said that a hook may lessen the effect of feeling the "touch", is this true ?

Thoughts ?

Would be nice. There’s no harm for the creator in that, right?

Didn't see your message. I guess there isn't any harm just posting it publically. This stuff. Mesh tape, easy to take off the unit (i had a very tough time removing the original tape as it didn’t “stay together”. This tape is much more sticky but since it’s mesh, stays together so switching to a different strip is easy. It’s cheap and I think worth testing for yourself.

Good luck,

Thanks for sharing, P3d. That's good to know. I think it's a shame Joao doesn't step forward with suggestions to help with the adhesives. You and Jamie clearly stated your problems. Glad to see you kind of found a solution.


We are working on a new video about this subject in particular.

The video will be added to the current instructional video and to my Facebook group.


Any up-date?
