Disclaimer I am 100% biased when it comes to this. Kyle is a close friend of mine, I received the second of these he ever made, and I helped name the effect. That being said he didn't ask me to comment or post about this.

Dropped Call is an amazing vanish of an iPhone. Here is a performance of me doing it: https://www.instagram.com/p/BujQ6nlhfyQ/
Here is a performance of Kyle doing it on his instagram: https://www.instagram.com/p/B-fCq19HrZp/

The gimmick is very clever and well made. There aren't any clothing requirements and the angles are great. Kyle and Zach have put a lot of thought into this project, and I can easily see this being the trick of 2020. The video posted today was just a teaser for the pre-order, with a raw performance clip. An actual trailer is coming

Ah well: it's pretty clear what you're getting here. If that's your thing and it works for you then good luck with it - truly. Times are hard enough for everyone at the moment without me sniping from the sidelines.

No Ross is not just you. Didn't look very impressive to me either. I think without showing the front of the phone before the vanish really weakens the effect, IMO. After watching the LED light and apple circle vanish it just seems like they would slide in and out between the casing. I'm sure others may have a different opinion which is totally fine and expected since every trick isn't for everybody.

Optix looks better.

It looks like you are doing what you are doing i’m afraid.
Pass from me but good luck with it.

Ellusionist... weren't they the guys that recently blocked their complete library and shut out all their customers without any warning? So that everybody here was worried they were bankrupt and every customer had lost every video they purchased over the years? And then it turned out to be a publicity stunt because they wanted to draw attention to the fact that they changed the background color of their website (or something incredibly stupid like that)?

It seems like you could just do this with an empty phone case and a D'lite.

I knew what was going to happen as soon as that terrible looking case and immediately obviously fake light turned on. Nothing looks right.

Found this youtube video of a guy talking about an advanced copy he received. May just be an issue with his unit, but spoilers it broke already.

As I watched the demo, I found that I was waiting for something and then I realized that the effect was over! Maybe some people will be able to do something special with this but this just does not interest me at all!

Sure you can do something special with this. DON’T ORDER IT.
