NOT JUST FOR RECYCLING - THE BOX OF A THOUSAND USES!
"JUST RECEIVED IT!"
Hey Steve, I just received my Green Machine, and what can I say? It's a beautiful prop, that allows for a ton of different presentation ideas! It's the perfect size (small enough to be practical, but the bright colors make it look huge!) and the handling is a dream. Very deceptive from just a foot away. Can't wait to use it -- and I know I'll use it A LOT!
What You are
I just watched the demo video and I think you have a WINNER here!

Steve Petra's Time Machine Routine
I got mine today, WOW!!! Steve, this is a BEAUTIFUL prop! It's got that great "living cartoon" quality I've been looking for, it's also very visible! It's lightweight yet very, very durable and when I did a basic routine for my son, he absolutely loved it! It's going to be in my shows literally starting immediately...!

"10 out of 10!"
You have blown all the cobwebs off an outdated effect and brought it into the modern age! This is contemporary with some great touches like the recycle spinner. I love the way you end the illusion completely clean. Congratulations Steve. It's brilliant.
SHRINKING MACHINE IDEA
About 10 years ago, I developed an idea to change a production device into a shrinking or enlarging machine. We have been blessed to present for the same two apartment complexes for over 15 years now. Instead of producing items for a Christmas theme magic and illusion show the items were either shrunk or "accidentally" enlarged. The fantasy concept was to address how Santa could carry all those toys, to good boys and girls around the world. You would be surprised at all the possible items that are sold in JUMBO versions or miniature versions. The effect plays very well, we'll bring it back this year. One of the laugh getting mistakes is when the Altoids tin,which was "shrunk" instead is enlarged to a huge version. Your updated Square Circle would work well, the size allows for GIANT possibilities.
I especially like the finish, where the parts of the "machine" are openly displayed at the conclusion of the routine. ...May God Bless. Stephen Schieszer (Goodyear, Arizona)
Steve Woyce using the Green Machine as a Time Travel Machine. Note he calls it a "Green Machine" because it does not use any electricity, or coal or other resources to operate... it uses Magic! Also check out the little table he made for it. This sets it up off your stand so the audience can see there is nothing underneath the trick like a trap door that goes down into your stand. It makes it more magical.

|The Christmas Story ...Routine by Tony Borders
I awoke Christmas morning and decided to sneak
down the stairs, through one door, and just take a peek.
I wanted to see if Santa had come!
I was hoping for presents, LOTS of presents.... but I only saw one!
There in the corner sat a lonely green box.
It had 3 pretty arrows. I think they were locks.
(pick up box) No, wait! It is open, it is just a big square.
And when I looked inside, I found nothing there,
Except a round package! Ah! This caught my eyes!
I'll take a quick peek to see the surprise!
Oh, no! I grabbed it, I shook it, but listen to me.
I found that the round package was also empty!
How could it be? What had I done wrong?
I tried to be good all the year long.
Except for that time when I picked on my brother.
And the few times, I suppose, that I disobeyed mother.
Oh, and there was that incident down at the store.
But Santa won't hold that against me I'm sure!
I'm not the only child who pulled on his beard!
And to get NOTHING for Christmas. That is just weird!
I looked under both packages, but nothing was there.
Nothing except for this cool looking chair.
I'll check them again! Perhaps I was wrong!
No, there is still nothing inside the green one.
And now the round one. I bet that it's full!
Full of great presents! Now that would be cool!
No. I looked once again. There is nothing within.
And without are 3 arrows... Wait. I'll give them a apin!
I see something inside! It looks like a seed.
Wow! Now it's growing.. Growing like a weed!
It isn't a weed! It's a Christmas tree!
And I think Santa left this, especially for me!
