Peter Loughran’s Entity only $399.99 USD. What is does: You can move objects across a flat table in a controlled way. No threads. Of course there is a certain weight limit and the condition, that the object is either gimmicked with or naturally contains metal.
We all go through phases in out magic life. There is the gimmick phase, the rough and smooth phase, the purist phase and of course the magnet phase. Peter seems to have come up with the Entity in the later one.
The gimmick is big. Really big. The is no way to palm it.
From the website:
ENTITY 2.1 IS NOW MUCH SMALLER IN SIZE, AND OFFERS MORE PROGRAMMING OPTIONS INCLUDING AN 'ON THE FLY' PAUSE FEATURE.
(It is still too big)
You can have your spectators search the test area for threads, magnets, wires, etc., and they won’t find a thing.
(Yeah, as long a you define the test area as ABOVE the table)
And let's face it. As soon as the objects moves people will look under the table. And what will they find...? The secret of course.
I guess you could darken the room so much, that the underside of the table appears black hiding the gimmick. Well, if it needs to be so dark, you can use thread.
Now the video its intro is still tooooooooooooo long:
This is a promotional video right? Then why is the video quality so low. (all his videos are) He charges 400 bucks for this "illusion" yet cannot afford a decent video camera! The glass in the video moves way too shaky and jerky and what is the point in 1:34 with the waving hand?
