Here is another electronic item from Christopher Taylor. In method it is very similar to his other recent premium item: The Snooker Prediction Box. However, what I love about Christopher is how he takes the same method and creates a very different effect.
This starts of as a clean version of Max Maven’s classic Kurotsuke routine by selecting the spectator who chose the only silver pocket watch out of five. But Christopher does not end there. He then reads the minds of the remaining four spectators by accurately pinpointing the time that each or their watches is set at.
The method to do this is easy to do and easy to remember, but the impact is pretty stunning and it comes back to how important the routine is for these mechanical and electronic marvels. So often we fall in love with the method, when in fact the method is almost meaningless (because you can’t show it to the audience) if the routine does not make the most of it.
I was really expecting to prefect the Snooker Prediction to this effect, but now it is not clear to me – both effects are amazing and choosing between them is quite difficult. And of course that is why I had to purchase both 🙂
Effect: Take a moment and turn it into something extraordinary with Time Keeper, a set of five beautiful pocket watches in an elegant wooden display case sure to get audiences talking. Create pure magic as you successfully identify which participant selected the unique watch, and watch that moment turn into a memory that will last a lifetime as you go on to reveal the times set on the watches the five participants are holding.
Time Keeper is a hand crafted performance piece consisting of a set of five pocket watches set inside a wooden display case. But this elegant display hides a powerful secret that covertly signals the performer which watch is chosen in real time from up to 20 yards away. Armed with this knowledge perform a version of the Max Maven classic “Kurotsuke” by finding the one silver watch among the four brass, only to take it an incredible step further by successfully identifying the times set on each participants chosen watch.
As a demonstration of psychic intuition, a lie detector routine, or as dabbling in the bizarre, Time Keeper is a perfect self contained show piece for stage or parlor. The simple to use electronic secret discretely communicates the chosen watch in real time to both a tactile and a digital display receiver, and frees you to give your best performance every time.
Time Keeper will only be made in very limited quantities. As a premium hand crafted device made to order, please allow up to two weeks before shipping.
