Supervision Entertainment Inc. (Ticker Symbol: SVET) Announces First Successful Heart Transplant Using Magnetic Technology; A Huge Boost for "SuperMag" Technology Awareness

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 18, 2006 -- SUPERVISION ENTERTAINMENT INC. (PINKSHEETS: SVET) -- Dr. Renzo Cecere, Director of the mechanical assist program at McGill University and surgical director of the heart transplant and heart failure program at the university, has successfully completed the first heart operation at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Montreal with a new mechanical device utilizing magnetic turbine technology.

The 65-year-old patient, Gerard Langevin, suffered a major heart attack in July of 2006. In the absence of any available hearts, the new contraption, the size of a 'D' cell battery, and still experimental, was successfully implanted, providing the recipient with a new lease on life. Although frail, Mr. Langevin is up and walking, and feeling fine.

The device is hooked to the left aorta and a right ventricle, providing a conduit for a continuous flow of blood. Inside the device is a small turbine that spins in a magnetic field. "Suspension in a magnetic field means that there is no wear or friction or erosion of mechanical parts," explained Dr. Cecere. "The device should last 10 - 15 years as opposed to one to three years for older technology," Dr. Cecere added.

Currently the technology is only available as part of a clinical trial at select hospitals in the U.S. and Canada. The possibility of magnetic technology and its applications are enormous. Supervision has received thousands of emails and comments about the applications for the "SuperMag" turbine.

The much larger "SuperMag" turbine motor/generator shows the scalability of the technology with all the same benefits. From a heart device the size of a D cell battery to a system the size of a standard air conditioner providing complete electricity, heat and all power needs for a home or office are all possible. Better yet, after the initial cost, the power is free. Supervision is at the forefront of this new emerging technology and is currently negotiating marketing rights for dozens of countries as well as manufacturing rights for the U.S. Deals have already been made with the U.K. and Canada.
