In a recent post Pete Biro mentioned that he had a rope trick that was going to be put out at one time that was going to be called the Nemo Rope Trick. This leads to a question that I have had for some time. Many tricks that Ken Brooke put out had the word Nemo in the title. What does Nemo mean or stand for.

Nemo was generlly, but not always, "house" effects, primarily the creation of Ken's back room genius Jim Hooper.

Along with the master work of Jim, Ken Brooke also gave the name "NEMO" to tricks or routines that he felt had acheived the ultimate level.

Johnny Thompson's NEMO 1500 was one of this tricks too!
