Bling Series 03 – The Magic Eye by Thomas Pohle
In 1982 the amazing German Craftsman and Inventor, Thomas Pohle, began creating small batches of magic for the historic magic shop in Berlin: Conradi Horster. The owner at the time, Peter Uelsmann, sold small quantities of Thomas' tricks and was keen to purchase more. So in 1984 Thomas started his own business. Eckhard Bttcher also started at the same time and so for many years Thomas built for Bttcher. In addition, he built for other retailers including: Kellerhof, Stolina, Bartl and a dealer in Austria Tony Reisner.
Well that was forty years ago and to celebrate creating and inventing beautiful magic for all these years Thomas has released a very special Box Set of which there will only ever be eight in the whole wide world :-)
Thomas calls this very special box his Bling Bling Box and it is contains four unique items and this item is the third one to be released.
The Magic Eye is probably my favorite of the Bling items - the method is really quite amazing and certainly unique. Even if you think you might have seen something like this before, I guarantee you will be surprised and very happy with the method. Although you might be thinking of Ed Mellon's Quantimental - you will be wrong, this is so much cleaner and better. The method is not only unique it is very practical and nigh on fool proof. If a spectator changes his mind and moves the chips around or doesn't place a chip down and slips it in his pocket, it won't matter you'll be able to tell.
It is incredibly easy to do and automatic in operation. There is no reset and you can show everything all around. This is really a wonderful piece of magic with zero electronics and nothing added or taken away.
Really amazing Thomas :-)
Effect: A small covered stand is shown holding four different colored chips. The performer turns away and the spectator places the chips in any order - they can change their mind and even slip one in their pocket if they want. When the performer turns around he can instantly pull out four duplicate chips from a small box and lay them out on the table - each one matches every single time.
