Manufacturer's Write Up:
Words change, drawings animate, spirits talk, matches un-burn. Ran Pink understands the mind of a creative magical ARTIST. After years of research and development, he's created something that generates "infinite possibilities" with one very special device. Until now only a handful of magicians and mentalists have had access to P'ink. It's been used for magic on television, youtube, stage and now it's time to see what you can do with it.
Reburn: Burn a match, heal it in a spectator’s hand, and relight it.
How To Read: Make spectators lose their ability to read like never before.
Card Morph: One card prediction changes to another like a special effect from a movie!
How accurate is the add copy?
Everything is spot on, advertisement and write up is exactly what happens
What's in the box?
One specially formulated custom ink marker that allows you to take control over your drawings like never before! Writing vanishes and appears like a cinematic special effect. This can be done in secret for devious mentalism or right under a spectator's nose for some eye candy. Beside the pen are a rolled paper instruction sheet that also includes the download code for a video.
Perfect for creating powerful magic for any audience. From effects that can be pulled from your wallet in a casual setting to routines for formal performances. Portable, subtle, and customizable.
How are the production values:
High quality HD teaching and viral hand held performance shots, multiple angles, color, black and white - this video has it all.
Is it well made:
The pen is completely safe and non-toxic and comes from over five years of research.
Is it well taught:
On the download you get 37 minutes of effects and explanation, including care and usage of our device. There is also a brainstorming section at the end with Andrew Gerard and Robert Smith. The video also includes troubleshooting at the end, including Ran's own request that he'd like to hear from you.
My thoughts (what I personally liked/disliked):
With so many one hit wonders on the market, this is a breathe of fresh air. This more than a magic trick, this is a tool that every magician should "literally" have in their back pocket.
Storage? Does it "pack flat?"
It's just a really big pen, it could go in any pocket. But for the most part, there is "typically" some set up involved, so the pen work needs to be either done at home, or in secret.
Does it "play big?"
With some of the mental effects and even the Reburn effect, I think you can get some choice reactions.
How practical is this in the real world? (can it really be done?)
This pen and it's make up uses real world scenarios and elements. This is not one of those devices that only works in sub-arctic temperature or in zero gravity.
How original is this idea?
If you think this is a FRIXION pen, it's not. In fact it's the "opposite" of that.
Overall score: 10/10
