I bought this effect on sale. As a person who works for a software company, and also a Magician, i want to incorporate tricks that use technology, without making it "about" the technology. I was skeptical after reading the description - and I was so wrong. THIS EFFECT WILL FRY THEM!
My family, having had to deal with being the beta spectators for any new effect, has seen it all, almost literally. Practice Practice Practice - sometimes to their detriment. I prepared to give this one a shot after I learned the really easy method (FYI the instructions provided on how to run the effect without the gimmick were perfect, and I had no need for any of the additional devices) I performed this at the family first.
This is one of hte few times that I elicited actual screams, and explinations that ranged from - "You were doing the video as we watched it" to "Aliens"
This went instantly into my repertoire and I have performed it quite a few times - the fact that as long as they have a device that is connected to the internet is great - its readily available. Then to seal the deal, YOU NEVER TOUCH THE DEVICE - EVER. I will repeat it again, you NEVER TOUCH THEIR DEVICE!
Also the setup works well that you can A: repeat it, B: you can also do a setup to run for 2 spectators at the same time.
This is the perfect combination of Technology and Magic - the only thing I don't like is that I wish I had thought of it first.
