I'm sorry if I missed this, what do we do when the markers run dry as they certainly will? Thanks

Does this have Craigs Blessing? It is after all his effect, and even the name is the same. Looks like another case of someone putting their name on an effect that isn't theirs. If this has Craigs Blessing then awesome and I'll apologize.

In the explanation video they tell you how to re-ink the pen. IMO (and that's MY opinion only) its a cumbersome process. Just a few hours before the performance, I put 2 to 4 drops of Whiteboard Marker Ink on the tip of the pen. The ink gets soaked (due to capillary action) in the tip and will work as good. In case of of extra ink, just wipe the tip with tissue paper and you are good to go. The few drops of ink will allow you to write a couple of hundred characters.

That's my way, other's may vary.

I was told.....the thing with this set is that you can remove the "items" and place them in anything, not just makers. So the versatility is great. Replace the markers, not refill.

Hello magicmind -

We will be selling replacement pen sets. They will be vacuum-packed for long shelf life. Also, the pens will contain the same safety-barrier feature found in the pens that come with the set. This prevents any leaking of ink into the electronics area. The electronics are kept in an e-pod. As well, the electronics have been specially coated to protect your investment.

Many of us have been performing the exact same routine with MD mini for years now. No ink to worry about.

Hello Chaz93 -
Murphy's Magic Supplies Inc. purchased the rights to COLOR MATCH a well as all of Anverdi's products/effects well over a decade ago. Anverdi was/is the originator of Color Match.

While is true that Murphy's Magic is the legitimate owner of the rights to Anverdi's effects, they DO NOT OWN THE RIGHTS TO THE TECHNOLOGY used in this modern version of colour match; I know this because I pioneered the development of the tech used. Yes, I created the world's first movement activated transmitters 15 years ago and marketed them as "T•3" which could be used in pens, drinking cups, etc.(I actually coined the phrase, "PK TASTE"). Craig of Pro Mystic asked for and received permission to use my technical concept when he released Bobby Motta's "Taste". Since then, I have done battle with numerous magic entrepreneurs over at least receiving credit for the concept. I hear defenses such as, "we are using different components in our version"; that to me is like claiming ownership of one of Vernon's card techniques because you are using a different brand of playing cards.

I am retiring from this business this fall; I am NOT going to miss the more malodorous aspects of the industry like this.

I ordered this from Penguin on June 10th and it's set to be delivered on June 22nd! I usually order from Penguin but 12 days to ship it here (I think they're literally using a pigeon) is ridiculous. Anyone else have this issue (just curious)? I saw where someone got it in 2 days from Vanishing...I'm just hoping it gets here before I leave next week...

Just received, I must be thick but where are the instruction? The URL on the lid just takes me to Murphys Anverdi page with no place to enter a PW. Thanks

I ordered this, and Vanishing Inc already send me the instruction video. But I did not find any answer to my question I write down below.
(Ok, I know, when the pens arrive I could possible find out myself, but, you know, impatience, and perhabs someone else would like to know before purchase!)

So: Does the black "empty" pen also have a fume seal. I guess, all these pens are made at the same time, so that should be the case? No? Yes?

In my first version using this kind of props, (now broken and wasted Smile ) I had a black pen that was used in an existing routine of mine, that did not send any signal, so I knew(?!) that this was picked up, but it was always a bit of: "Is there e malfuntion or is it really the black pen now?"

If this swap to the "sender-empty" black marker was possible, I could use my old additional props and just add these new better pens in my old and trusted effect. For instance, put the violet sender into the black pen shell. Or must I use some layers of plastic shrink wrap for protection?

I have not been able to remove the base on the black pen. At least, I cannot remove it the same way I can remove the base on the other pens.

I have a sneaky feeling the black pen is "normal" and has a full-length ink cartridge.

I have a couple of Sharpie Magnum pens. I modified one of them to hold a Wilson Remote so I can activate the remote "in plain sight" while I am using the Magnum pen while on stage. The e-pod from Anverdi Color Match would easily fit inside a Sharpie Magnum. The challenge would be protecting the electronics from ink and ink vapors.

You might want to look at the post I made a few minutes ago in the Secret Session topic for Anverdi Color match.

Just received my package.

WOW!

It's almost worth "The Price of Admission" just to open the box!

Gotta love that!

Thanks Mark.
Post tracking says that I will get it any day now so I can see for myself.
The construction of the pens is just (I think) a tube with the e-pod as an end cap that fits into it.
So you should be able to cut away the "cork" on the black pen with a saw with fine teeth and insert (in my case say) the violet end cap.
Ok, you probably have to add proper protection to the electronics, and seal off the pen tube behind the shortened ink cartridge...
Hmmm... looks like some advanced DIY...
Maybe I should consider change or throw away my older stock of allready printed predictions...

Christopher you and Taylor Imagineering will be GREATLY missed. 😢

I hope to meet you again one day - at a convention or anywhere else to raise a glass at your work!
You brought so many great ideas and items to the table - I’m grateful for every single one.

“The Industry” can use and abuse your work (same goes for ProMystic ❤️) but they can’t take away your achievements and innovation!
It’s all about innovation but so many can’t appreciate it.
“Us” who perform your effects for 15 years now - we know who is right in this discussion.

Thank you!
