This morning I was reheating my cup of coffee in the microwave, watching the turntable go round and round, when I got an idea. I would like to run it by you to get your input as magic prop builders and see what you think?

Has anyone ever done a microwave production box? Here is what I was thinking: It would be a standard production box utilizing any of many different methods. The box is covered in stainless steel sheets and looks like a standard stainless steel microwave. Mounted to the back side of the door is a flat screen monitor that would play a video that looked like the item (just like my coffee cup) was going around on the carousel. The buttons on the front of the microwave would control what video was being played.

A possible routine could be the magician puts a live chicken in the microwave and closes the door. The interior is dark until he touches a button that looks like he is starting a standard microwave then a video is played of a chicken going around on a carousel. (Imagine the audience horror.) Then a flaming explosion takes place inside, looking like the chicken blew up, and then the interior goes dark. (The real chicken is switched with a plastic prop.) The magician opens the door to revel a roast chicken on a platter that he removes.

What do you think?

Again there are many methods and many possible routines that could be done with this. The hardest part would be taking the video and editing it for the particular routine.

Here is a video playback circuit card that would work. The only possible problem might be that it is has a Max Resolution of 1280x720. If you played it back on a 10" screen, would it look real or recorded? I would think that the higher the resolution, the better.

Here is another that I like better. It comes matched to a display. I'm thinking that an 18" would match a standard sized microwave. You would have to place a screen in front of the display so it looks real.

Oops! Looks like someone else already had a similar idea.

Here is another. Looks like a back door switch.

That was cute but my idea is to take it to a higher level. Furthermore, 695 Eros! WOW!

Comments welcome.
