I just want to be clear about exactly what you are and aren't getting. You ARE getting the coolest
James Bond utility device. Its super high quality and great for dong the trick portal. What you
don't get is a way to make smoke come out of your mouth at any time. For the tricks I wanted it for
its basically useless. I already knew warning by Daniel Garcia, and Brian Brushwood Scam School fans
should recognize it too so being able to do Portal wasnt a big deal for me. In addition I am totally
not the kind of person who would absent-mindedly [do the move], and although with portal there's
good justification with most other tricks there isn't. For now it seems like its going to be
relegated to being used for a gag in my fire eating routine, which is good but not $50 good.
Hopefully I'll come up with a better use later....

First, this is a GREAT magic gimmick, and it should last a long time. I gave it 3 stars for lack of
How long does it take to fully charge, and how long will a charge last?
Can you over charge it? Should you leave the battery connected when not in use? How many "smokes"
per cartridge? Where can I get more cartridges? What brand is the gimmick? Why is there no forum for

Well it's a good effect and nice gimmick but I'm disappointed they don't show in any of the previews
some vital things you need to do in making this gimmick work
This is not the first time
that the promo video doesn't inform the potential buyer.

WOW! The device was very clever. Alan is a very creative thinkers. I showed this to my friends and
some random kids and they are all freaking out! The teaching is really easy to follow and to
understand! But, this effect FAILED to pass my test. My father figured it out easily! He told me why
put the bla.. bla.. bla.. Another thing is this trick will not work twice on the same person! It is
obvious! It is up to you whether to buy this or not. But, I suggest you get Alan Rorrison's Night
and Day DVD.

Yes, the gimmick is high quality and pretty cool. Yes, this is fun to practice in the mirror and
watch the smoke go up.
However, the get ready has to happen in front of the spectator,
and (IMHO) somewhat ruins things. I have performed this trick on several different people and
gotten mediocre responses. I perform it just as taught on the DVD. There is something about it
that is kind of anti-climatic... hard to put my finger on.
Perhaps it was that I was
showing the effect to adults rather than kids... or teenagers... who might have enjoyed it more.
Additionally, once you are prepped, you can't talk at all. You can't produce the
smoke from your hands (unless you breathe into them).

Just got it, many possibilities. Smoke (or Vapor) looks extremely cool coming out of your mouth. A
little practice in the mirror (and vaporizing yourself) will stun people.
Came with plenty
of cartridges, and thanks for the M&M's too. (I thought they were the 'gimmick' LOL).

Just astounding. It is so simple, and brilliant. No one will ever suspect the gimmick. It gets great
reactions, and when performing it, you'll even feel amazing you self. It requires literally no
setup, and no reset. Can be performed over and over in a row. Simply put, amazing trick.

yeah i'd have to agree with the guy below me(or above) that there is something about this trick that
gets mediocre responses. i really like the portal route. the idea that someone can blow smoke into
your hand or light a match under your hand and the smoke travels to your mouth but people kinda are
like 'not bad' for the most part. try this. it got me better reactions. have someone draw a pipe or
cigar and then 'smoke' it. that got me killer reactions.
the one and only' move' u have to
do is very easy to do if you can just chill and chat with people for like 2sec. NO ONE has ever
noticed that i did it over 30 times ive done this effect. the gimmicks so cool though. you're gonna
like it when u see it for sure. so good. get creative with this. its crazy portable and small.
you'll never notice you have this with you.

Its a great gimmick and fun! The only reason that I give it 3 stars is for the limitations on which
you can use it. Its great for a personal 1 on 1 trick, but if your gathering a crowd, the risk of
getting caught is very high! Mature audience members watch everything! And the loading of the smoke
can be easily detected by a large group with a mature nature. Still fun though, and kids love it!

The trick is very easy to perform, it only requires the appropriate misdirection, i've gotten some
great reactions just from playing around with it.
I personally don't like the portal routine
that is taught on the DVD, but it easily explains how to use the gimmick and some other ideas and
tips with coming up with your own trick. With a little creativity, I think you can create a killer
routine around this.
