New Generation Card Fountain (Third Series) (with Remote) by Marcelo Contento(c. 1993,1998) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
In 1991 Marcelo and Victor Contento founded their company Contento Productions and so began the creation of some of the best engineered custom props for magicians. One of the most popular items was this item The New Generation Card Fountain.
This is still the best card fountain available and the one to beat. This version is the third series released c. 1998 and came with an optional remote control.
Effect: In 1946 Billy McComb published his refreshing ideas about the De Kolta Card Fountain, which was destined to become a classic effect. His creative thinking and concepts were the beginning of a dream awaiting only the technology to develop it into a working reality. And when this finest state-of-the-art Card Fountain was released Billy McComb received the first one ever manufactured.
Imagine placing your deck of unprepared cards into a box or hat (or anything else) and a few moments later, after stepping far away, the entire deck cascades upward in a magnificent fountain … one card after another. The “magic” is up to you. Perhaps you will choose to reach your hand into the fountain and draw out a selected card, or you may choose to stab the card with a Card Sword. The possibilities are endless.
The unique and compact design was developed for the demanding professional performer. The delay is electronic or with a remote control. The mechanism shoots the cards four feet into the air for a spectacular display. This is a self-contained, high quality product that you will be proud to own and perform.
When in 1993 we announced the release of our first New Generation Card Fountains, we never thought that we would be offering a Third Series. Today, it doesn’t surprise us as it has been adopted by most professionals around the world. Our new Card Fountain, Third Series, was designed and manufactured with the same standard of quality and dedication, but with five more years of experience. The electronic board was redesigned in order to eliminate the use of an extra battery in the Wireless Radio Control unit (an accessory not included), and to reduce its size.
The new hard finish was made possible through a completely different painting process and the Control Wire and necessary batteries Wireless Remote Control are included. Smaller than a poker deck (only 2.7″ x 2.2″ x .95″) Reliable, it works with coded signals to eliminate interference. Just plug it into the machine and place the 1.25″ x 2.125″ x .70″ transmitter in your pocket.
The Card Fountain may be activated in three different ways: By using the Electronic Delay (8 seconds), the included Control Wire (activates the machine by-passing the delay) or the Wireless Radio Control (accessory). After shooting the cards four feet (or more depending on the quality of the deck and how fresh the batteries are) into the air for a spectacular display, the machine turns OFF automatically.
