We originally sold this “must have” brainteaser when Auke Van Dokkum turned us on to it. He made a limited number of these and if your looking for a fun “pastime” or like to collect oddities – this qualifies. Keep in mind this is “not” really a magic trick, however, there are many ways you could use it as a magic effect or presentation piece.
In the product photo you can see the circle is completely filled in with a solid round object. Now comes the teaser part! Can you imagine one solid object that would be able to fit through all the three shapes (just as you can see in the circle now) and as it passes through the shapes it fully occupies the entire space of each geometric shape? In other words, this one solid object as it passes through each of the shapes, occupies the entire space of each shape, and is just every so slightly enough smaller, so that it can “just pass through” each of the three geometric shapes!
This is something truly unique that will baffle you. This product is truly unique and as a conceptional or conversational piece worth every penny, The word puzzle is sometimes used to describe but it’s not really a puzzle in the sense of it being solved, but it truly puzzling. This piece is limited to one’s imagination regards to how it can be presented. What you get is a is an aluminum plate that is solid and features 3 distinct geometrical shapes that have been cut out, such that the negative space makes it easy to clearly see a square, circle and triangle. You also receive a very unique gimmick.
(A) one preferably parlor mentalism effect whereby the mentalist produces a bag and from the bag removes a solid aluminum plate which is displayed to show three unique geometrical shapes, which have been cutout, a Circle, Triangle, and a Square. The mentalist asks a spectator to think of one of the three unique shapes. The spectator chooses the circle. The mentalist says that inside the same bag there is one piece that will fit through one of the three shapes. He removes the piece and sure enough it is a solid black block that is circular and passes through the circle which is the shape the spectator chose. As it passes through it occupies the entire diameter of the circle perfectly. The mentalist then hands the bag to any spectator who confirms that there are no other blocks in the small bag – not a square nor triangle block.
(B) If you perform psychic readings this is absolutely a MUST have. Neal Scryer has been using one for several years. It’s the perfect tool or accessory to be used for readers as it can be incorporated with Zenner Cards (Joesph Banks Rhine). From there it is a natural to go into the visual presentation of the complexity of the client’s issue – and even better the visual embodiment of how it needs to be solved. If desired, you could do a full reading just with this unique piece.
(C) Another exceptionally strong application is to use this product as a visual aid in over-coming objections. The rigidity of the three different geometrical shapes is what really makes this piece so enticing. This would be perfect for keynote speaking of motivational speaking as it could easily be applied to any challenge. Got a keynote for a pharmaceutical company – or any company – BOOM, you can simply alter your presentation and you have something exceptionally powerful that fits in your pocket.
If your addressing a pharmaceutical company you can speak about how just when the right antibiotic or viral medication is finally solved, and you think your home free, what happens but the virus mutates and now you have to find a way to once again resolve this. With the product you can visually show that you have accomplished just that, only for it once again to mutate, which takes you back to the lab but with persistence and dedication you show once again how your vaccine can also mutate to the point where it it capable of curing all three unique virus with one vaccine.
Comes with the metal plate and the special “ingredient” that makes it all happen.
Note: We added small sticker to the unit featured in this photo. This sticker does NOT come with the unit. But it’s a great idea to add some mysterious text, depending on the angle or flavor you want to highlight. In our case we created something for a secret ESP Lab!
