Chiromagica and Other Mind Reading Devices
It's called Chiromagica.
It's rare, collectible, and unusual because it it can actually read your mind.
Yes, even your mind.
What you do is look for your question on one of three round dials, and then set it on the center of the game/automaton.
Suddenly a tiny hand sitting under glass will move around and then settle on your answer.
Pretty cool for a game from over 137 years ago.
I asked it to tell me the capital of Turkey.
It said, "Sacramento."
It said, "Washington."
It's called a Release Meter.
It's a cool looking unit, though odd to leave out on your coffee table without some explanation.
You simply slip on a headband and the single, gold-plated electrode in it makes contact with your forehead. You plug the other end into your computer. You load up some software. The Release Meter then shows how "clear" you are.
I know it sounds trippy but this thing appears to work.
Your feelings about your thoughts show up on a graph on your monitor. As you practice your favorite clearing method, the graph shows whether you are actually clear or not of that belief.
I don't blame you.
PS -- If you want a Chiromagica of your very own, there's one for sale at www.georgeglazer.com/decarts/toysgames/chiro.html I don't know the seller and have no idea if the 1870 game they have even works. But maybe you can use your mind to read theirs and find out. Wait a minute. Let me ask MY Chiromagica...
