This item is the brainchild of the the talented Norwegian Øyvind Kaurstad and it has been causing quite a stir over at the Cafe and on YouTube. Check-out Rob Rand’s wonderful video to view the action!
It is a very clever device built to some pretty tight tolerances using a Digital Printer and some people even prefer it to Richard Gerlitz’s Family Ties which of course was based upon Ian Ogilvey Blocks of San Yen. There is no doubt it looks very convincing. I found setting it up to be a pain, but Øyvind assures me it gets easier with practice. This is one of those effects where the set-up is harder than the performance for sure. If you have poor eye-sight, arthritis or lack of patience I would not recommend this item, because you may struggle to set it up. I will say that Øyvind provides excellent printed and online instructions to help with the set-up and it certainly makes it easier if you watch the video first.
Once you have it set-up you have a rare and amazing fooler on your hands for sure!
