I'm sure someone has, but don't recall any specific names.
Here is the problem with that: the cards will fall on the floor and can't be seen unless you are in a sitting room situation where you are standing and the seated audience is a distance back from you.
Vernon used the principle in a trick where he tossed a deck of cards in a swimming pool and only the selection(s?) were face up.

Richard,
Are you referring to the spring loaded gimmick that would go in his Breast Pocket?
