Turn Me On
Order APPEARING POLES
Order POLE CONTROL
Order IMAGINATION SILKS

There are two versions of this effect. One version focuses on the appearance of light from a small case. The other leads to an appearance of an appearing pencil. Both effects use lights and cases from Harbor Freight, but substitutions are welcome. The appearing pencil version also uses the Pole Control gimmick.

Bright Light Version
The idea for this effect comes from a case I made for the EELvis light bulb trick I sold in 2018. The bulbs are no longer available, but the case is still a wonderful DIY project. The case is an Apache 1800 Weatherproof Protective Case – Small. At the time of making this DVD, they are $14. The lights are 200 Lumen LED Super Bright Flip Lights for $4. Two lights are needed for the inside of the case and one for the front. The video chapter shows how the case is assembled. The items inside the case are a small book, pair of funny glasses and something to represent a small microphone.

Script
(Open case and hold as shown on the video chapter. Flip the light on then off when you say, “Turn on your imagination.” Remove small book from case) When we read a book, we turn on our imagination.

(Remove glasses from case) When we open a book and look at the pictures, we turn on our imagination.
(Remove microphone from case) When we hear a storyteller, we turn on our imagination.
Do you know how to really turn on your imagination? Write your own story. (Flip lights on inside box and position face over box so it’s obviously the box is full of light.)

Appearing Pencil Version
This version uses a Voyager 11-1/2 X 7-1/2 X 4-1/2 Aluminum Case, $14. Pole Control is mounted in the case with appearing pencil. A small book and funny glasses are also in the case. Only one light is needed for this version and it is attached to the front of the case. For presentation, load appearing pencil in gimmick and place book and glasses in case.
