This is one of the coolest ideas for a trick that I've seen in a LONG time. Thoughts?

Oh, and check out the interview that I did with Blake about his newest release.

So I really liked the effect when I saw the video. Since I am not a full time performer, I'm always looking for opportunities to do magic but I'm not the type of guy that walks around asking "wanna see a trick?" So I liked the idea of wearing something that catches peoples attention and gives you the opportunity to perform. This looks like a very organic trick and I love the idea of a giveaway for the spectator.

Chris, in your interview, Blake stated that now he can hit it 100% of the time. That worries me as a guy that doesn't always do "knacky" moves well (ie, the Strike Vanish). Because I don't have the practice time that I used to have, I'm opting for "easy" over knuckle-busting or tricks that require a knack.

As a side note, I bought the Ultimate Card Control Utility because people were raving about have easy it was and they were performing with it after 5 minutes of practice. After probably 20 hours of practice I still can't hit it every time! Arg!!!! I'm not always good at "knacky" tricks. Anyway, I just ordered it today so I hope it is as good as it looks and easy too!

Wow! That does look pretty sweet. I have actually made those rings before, worn them and had others ask about them (as he said they would). I typically respond by making them one, but that takes a solid 3-4 minutes. This way seems better.

3-4 minutes? No more, just wave a bill and it self folds! All kidding aside, it it is pretty cool.

I finished making my gimmicks and have been playing with it. You will need two five dollar bills and two ones at a minimum to make the gimmicks and the first ring. You get the extra items required to make the magic happen.

The handling is pretty simple and well motivated. It will take a little practice to do the bonus handling and to break in the gimmick on the ring. Overall, this has the potential to be a real worker. I like Vogt's idea of giving out a bunch of these at your gig to show the customer where you've been and to generate interest.

Glad to hear that you enjoy it. I have also been having a lot of fun with the basic handling. I haven't had a chance to try out the bonus handling, but it looks like it will be equally powerful.

Does this work with other currencies? In particular, those of us with multicoloured, plastic notes?
