There was no question Mikame was a great craftsman of quality wood apparatus. We knew him personally and when he started producing again featured his products exclusively in the States. We would meet with him every few years in Japan. In many cases he made substantial improvements with resepect to their design. Unfortunately, Mikame (to my knowledge), never credited previous innovators and crafters of the pieces he replicated. In some cases such details may be disputable, or even difficult to determine. But in the majority of cases this was not the case and his legacy would of been stronger had he made some efforts to do so.
To see an invisible object is truly a miracle. A spectator places any personal object in the box closed the lid and ties it shut (or not). Instantly you are able to name any object placed inside the the box. You even name the color of the object, its texture and which way it is resting within the box. In short everything to positively identify the spectators personal article. You will be right EVERY time. Repeat immediately. Any article that will fit in the box can be used for this clairvoyant effect. The X-ray Box may be examined by the spectators.
