***- that looks pretty good- but doesn't all of the SansMind stuff look great on video? I'll wait to see what the Wizard Product guys say. Interestingly, the illustration looks like it's similar to the Meir Yedid coin vanish that Doug Henning made famous. Looking forward to hearing more.

There’s one line in the ad which should give most people a fairly good idea of how this is done.

Neat idea.

Isn't this just the old trick where you touch a coin with the tip of a pen and it changes?

Hmmm- not what I thought- looked closer at the illustration, and it is meant to communicated ink coming off the coin, not a thread. Ok... we'll, let me reread the copy per Madison's suggestion and see if I can get an idea.

Must use a silver coin. Guess why.

Well, if I bought this only to find out that it's tinfoil over top of the coin I'd be p.o.ed. Tell me I'm wrong.

If the video fooled you and the method is workable, what difference does it make what the method is for $20?

That doesn't look anything like the Sansmind video.

wether you do kinda spellbound move or tap it doesn't matter...if sansmind uses the same concept for the inkchange it was already published...that's all I am saying!

Wouldn't be the first time by the way...

"wether you do kinda spellbound move or tap it doesn't matter...if sansmind uses the same concept for the inkchange it was already published."

But if the end product looks significantly different, then the effect hasn't been "published" before. There's a big difference between rubbing a coin in your own hand and tapping a coin on a spectator's hand. This trick may be junk, but if it turns out to be practical in the real world then that change is a big improvement in my opinion.

By your logic, only one person should have been allowed to come up with the idea of using a flap to make a card change, then no one else should have been allowed to improve on it because it was "already published". That's not how magic works thankfully because it would just stifle progress completely.

lol, by MY logic sansminds doesn't care at all about credits etc.! By YOUR logic stealing is fine as long as you improve it? yes...sounds like sansminds

by the way, then explain to me why "Invisible" from Sansminds was taken off the shelves? maaaaybe because there was something very similar published years ago?
sure, you can improve stuff...as long as you play by the rules of the game. And Sansminds is known for "cheating"...

Not sure if they changed the password? Doesn't work for me, though it did yesterday.

If it is the above mentioned method, it's well done. Having experimented a little with the that idea, I never got it to look convincing.

Congratulations! You’ve entered the top ten most illogical comments of all time on here and it only took 175 comments. The two effects look nothing alike. It’s like comparing apples and oranges.
