Automatic Falling Wall
By Jolyon Jenkins
Hanging on the wall of the
seance room is a frame containing a photo or painting of
your choice. When you decide the time is right, when a
sign from the spirit world is needed, for example, the
frame suddenly falls off the wall. That's it! That's all
it does. But if you know how to milk that event for all
it is worth then this is for you. The Magi-tronic
"stuff" is built right into the frame so all
you have to do is hang it on any wall and trigger the
radio control when you want it to fall.
You can play this in a number
of ways as evidence that theres a
poltergeist present, as a demonstration of your own
mental powers, or just as a spooky effect in the middle
of a haunted house presentation.
Reset is instantaneous. There
are no threads or other mechanical devices attached to
the picture. Its all done through electronics and
internal mechanics. You can adjust the degree to which
the frame falls: it can just shift or hang crookedly, it
can fall partially - being caught by a snag in the wall
or a piece of string, it can drop to the floor but be
saved by landing on a cushion of some sort, or it can
come right down to the floor with a crash and shatter a
glass covering if you wish. You decide; you control.

building the effect, and not the actual prop itself. You
make the device following photos and instructions and get
the parts from sources suggested by the author. The purchase of any of these e-Books entitles
you to construct one item for your own personal use. If
