What other unusual and amazing way to produce an electric switch out of thin air at a launch, if not with Andrew Lee’s electrifying illusion and unexplained magic? The renowned mentalist and magician launched a new range of Orbit Ultra electrical switches with a spectacular show at Radisson Blu on July 24.

The evening that started with peppy Bollywood numbers by three dancers led to an intriguing show by Lee, leaving the audience speechless and dazed. Blindfolded, he was able to say what a woman was thinking and drinking and he blindfolded another woman and told her to count the number of times he touched her arm. She said three. But guess what, he never touched her once but had thrice touched her husband. After over 15 minutes of mindboggling acts, for his grand finale, he made a tube light without any visible light glow, and impressed the crowd with some martial art moves. All of a sudden, he brought to light an electric switch out of nowhere and handed it to Arun Kumar, one of the directors of Orbit.

It produces vibrant and colourful designs for homes and offices, only in India and does not believe in importing products. Their success increased the demand and resulted in more factories in Haridwar and Mumbai. With an aim to spread further and capture the national market by the end of 2016, the company has already initiated activities to penetrate into other South Indian States.

Here in Chennai, Orbit with their new products started off with magic and glam. The magic show and the sequences of dance performances weren’t the only entertainment. The buffet table was filled with scrumptious vegetarian food. What made dinner more delightful was the beautiful melodies and voices of two singers who sang old Bollywood songs.
