Re: Silken Glass Mystery by Magic Wagon

@Olaf S: The trick you linked to there is a different trick, even if it has the common element of something being penetrated through glass (or acrylic/plexiglas). I have also made a 3D-printed version of the trick you linked to, but the post about it is in the closed section on this site, so until y...

Re: Magic Wagon - Ultimate Mental Boxes

Examination of all parts simultaneously can't be done, in my opinion. But I expected that, so I'm not really concerned about it.

Re: Magic Wagon - Ultimate Mental Boxes

It is already a success, at least when it comes to sales, because it's now sold out. It remains to be seen if it lives up to the original, though. I have some doubts about parts of the description, especially this line: "The boxes and die are now handed to a spectator for examination." If there is n...

Re: Magic Wagon - Ultimate Mental Boxes

Is this a new twist on Badlands Bob? https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.ca%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F112146361108 It is clearly a relative of Badlands Bob, yes. It is also a close relative of Badlands Box, which was a box to simplify handling of Badlands Bob (no gimmick to hide). An...

Re: Magic Wagon - Ultimate Mental Boxes

I had to order one of these, even it it's a lot of money for what it is. I could of course quite easily make my own version, but it would obviously look a lot cheaper than this one.

Re: Danny Cole On Penn And Teller

That was quite clever, but the editors probably had to do quite a bit of work in post-processing before allowing it to air. It is slightly mysterious that P&T was fooled, I think.

Re: Magic Wagon - Ultimate Mental Boxes

Excuse my ignorance, but is a "shifty shuffle" some specific magic term? As far as I understand, the shuffling of the chips is (and replacing in the boxes) done by the spectators while the performer has his back turned?

Re: Magic Wagon - Ultimate Mental Boxes

Wow that's great! Another mentalism effect! Not really sure if you're being sarcastic or not? This seems an impossible effect, unless there's something in the explanation that's missing... I'm quite sure some key information has been left out in the description, yes. Or perhaps finally MW has produ...

Re: HONEY, I BLEW UP THE DICE !

Steve, I am fully aware that the original is still available, and that it's cheap. This has nothing to do with money, it's just that I much prefer to make my own stuff, and also that I want a box with standard 16 mm dice. Victor, you don't have to search for your notes or take new measurements. I've...

Re: HONEY, I BLEW UP THE DICE !

Very nice, Victor! Great job on this jumbo version! I've recently bought a version of this trick myself, but I just can't get it to work properly. It is clearly not a genuine Tenyo, and I am unsure why I can't get it to work reliably. And I have tried. The dice in mine are quite small, and they look...

Re: 2018 tenyo

Good job! As I commented on your video, your stand looks great, mine is much simpler. Both does the job, of course.

Did you modify the guillotine itself to be able to show the blade all the way to the bottom before inserting the bill?

Re: Unity Illusion by Tony Davies

Maybe I've set the expectations too high with the above post? Well, we shall see. The prototype is ready, so now I'll have to shoot pictures and a video. I don't have the patter ready yet, but I might start with some still photos of the prototype first, and then a video when ready.

Re: Unity Illusion by Tony Davies

I've been working on a brand new ribbon illusion now (a quite deceiving one, I hope), and if all goes well with my prototype, I might be able to post some pictures and a video tomorrow. It is possible I have done something quite new, at least I haven't seen the exact same method/setup used before.

Re: Unity Illusion by Tony Davies

Your Lego version is very nice, Rob. There is one moment where something slightly unnatural happens in your performance though, and that is when you push the ribbon down at around 54 seconds into the video. The left box (as viewed) then moves instead of just the ribbon. It's a bit hard to explain th...
