Ok so this is a nice little effect By Mr Oberon, if your familiar with his work then you'll understand that the simplicity of this is great...

It comes with different effects, involving various colour/number forces, i cant say what they are cos that would just spoil now wouldnt it...

This is one of those effects that you could start with and would get everyone on a table instantly involved...Its a nice little handling and has in a way a variation of a swami effect without the swami (but thats as much as Im saying on that) This is defo goin to go straigh into my act , this packs small and plays big...you could wing one rouitne out for at least 10 mins if you wanted to...Although this is close-up/ish it could easily be adpated for stage or cabaret on a larger drawing board...

Id give the effect a 2 out 5 for the idea, as its nothing knew, however it gets a 4 for potential performance impact, this could hit home very well...So mix this in with you already exisiting act and youd be well away....Im gonna test run it tonight at a lecture and see what everyone thinks.............

Nice one Marc another nice clever effect, using a simple idea..

from my understanding of the method, i wouldnt do this close up. It plays big, and would be much better for caberet and stage .
Few effects can give you the oportunity this offers, to involve a couple of hundred punters at once.

well, at least the routine i have in mind offers this.All i have to do is order the prop!

to dig up an old thread, i took a punt on this - this'll work fine for close-up to stage...i actually rather like it...

thankfully, it wasnt what i was expecting...

shame they didnt give you the "other shape" that goes along with the gimmick...would have been a nice touch...though to make one won't be any hardship...

Are you sure? If this is from his lecture, I think Dale is correct in saying this would be risky at tables but perfect for cabaret and stage.

Nice product. It could be used for table hopping, if you don't mind carry around an A4 board and you vary the routine. - but it's best suited to a one-off static event.

I think I know what you mean - and I've done it. PM me for more info.
