Tenyo 2012, the third eye ・ テンヨー2012年、ザ・ザードアイ

Yet another update on the Tenyo 2012 item "The third eye". I have been using this a lot in our magic bar lately, and it is great. Sadly, people often drop the eye when you hand it to them to put between their eyes (or when they hand it to someone else). This has led my third eye to be very glitchy. I though it was broken first, but it started working again later.

またテンヨーの2012年の新作品のザ・ザードアイの話なんだが最近マジックバーでよく使っている。うけがいい!残念ながら、お客さんに渡してから、お客さんがよくあの目を落とすんだ。僕の目が光らなくなったから壊れたと思ったが自然に治った。接触が悪くなったと思う。

Anyway, apart from it having to be handed out to drunk people and the risk of them dropping it (breaking your expensive toy), it is highly recommended. It does not work that well with only one or two spectators, but the larger the group the greater the impact. You explain that anyone with this eye between their eyes can see where the selected card is, and when the first person to use the eye slightly suprisedly says "Yes, I can see it!" the other people get curious. They still cannot see anything out of the ordinary. You have one more person try it, and go "Ah, I see it!". People get even more excited, since they still cannot see anything. This keeps building, so the more people the better!

酔っ払いに落とされて壊れる恐れ以外はかなりのおすすめだ。お客さんが1~2人しかいない時にあまりうけないが人が多いと凄くうける。この目を自分の目の間に付けると選んだカードがどこにあるか、分かるよって説明して、最初のお客さんが「あ!分かる!」と言ったら、他の人がちょっとテンションあがる。自分にはまだ見えない。2人目も「分かる!」と言ったら、もっと「何?何?」ってテンションあがる。人が多ければ、どんどん盛り上がって行く!

I think I will go and buy myself one more of these wonderful toys, since the first one seems quite unreliable by now.

この素晴らしいザ・ザードアイも一個を買いに行こうかな?持っているのは信頼性がちょっと低くなった。
