The AmazeBox

 

The AmazeBox, if you haven't heard, is a revolution for switching billets and playing cards. Spectators write, for example, their favorite movie on pieces of paper and then drop them into a small cardboard box. You never touch the box; someone comes on stage, opens it up and randomly selects a billet. It is always your force billet. It really is that clean which is why it has been used by some of the most famous magicians in the world.

With this new version, you can: switch up to 200 billets, perform surrounded, travel anywhere (it packs flat!) and have a failsafe method for switching paper, playing cards, and more!

Robert Smith and Paper Crane Magic proudly present Psypher


Psypher is the highly acclaimed product, Universal Impression, but bigger, better and stronger. Imagine knowing what anyone is thinking at anytime. ANY word, picture, card, or thought is written by a spectator and you know what it is, without ever coming near them!

Here's what you get:

More material
More options, a larger gimmick for you to work with. (Twice as much as the original UI)

Stronger gimmick
Custom made to work 20% better than the original.

A business card wallet
Most peek wallets cost twice the amount of this entire package alone. You're getting one free... and guess what? This blows any peek wallet out of the water! Why? Because you never touch the business card after they write on it.

New Routines
Psypher is extremely easy to use but throw in some basic card technique and routining from B. Smith and your levels of deception and impact just went up a few notches. Of course if you want to sit back and let the gimmick do all the work go right ahead, that's what it's here for!

 

Here's just one of the routines taught on the DVD:

E-Z - This effect is one of the most pure mentalism effects conceivable with a deck of cards. Your spectator is asked to think of ANY card in the deck, write it down on a piece of paper, and put that piece of paper in their pocket. All of which is done while your back is turned; you can even be in another room! When you return, you remove the cards from the box and place one face down card on the table. Ask the spectator to name the card they are merely thinking of... the spectator turns the card over and it is the thought of card!! Card magic doesn't get any more powerful!

Let's face it, this isn't just a DVD or just a Gimmick, this is an entire MENTALISM KIT with endless possibilities!!!

PropDog Card on Ceiling Wax

 

The Card on Ceiling trick has been around since the early part of the century and was originally performed with tacks but over the last few decades, magicians have been using wax as an alternative.
PropDog came up with what we think is a great improvement to the wax and that is to colour it to make it much more invisible depending on hour you use it.
The PropDog Card on Ceiling Wax has been specially formulated in conjunction with a dedicated wax manufacturing company to be of the perfect consistency for the trick. It's not so sticky that it leaves a sticky residue on your fingers, but sticks perfectly to ceilings and walls and means you can use smaller amounts, giving you more performances per tub. All colours have been professionally matched and the colourant is wax based, so will not stain the ceiling. Of course the chances of actually flashing the wax is very little and it's never been a requirement before, but as this wax is cheaper than other versions, then using it can only make your act better.

The Colours
For those who like to hide their wax in plain sight, we have:
Sharpie Grey
- For those who hide the wax on their Sharpie, a small amount on the bottom of your Sharpie is almost imperceivable. Just steal the wax off as you give the Sharpie to the spectator to sign their card.
Sharpie Black - For those who hide it on the lid of their Sharpie or on their belt. Just steal it off the lid or your belt as you give out the Sharpie.

For those who hide the wax out of sight, we have:
Bicycle Blue and Red -
Professionally colour matched to Bicycle Card Red Backs. Once loaded on the card, if you were to accidentally flash the top of the cards whilst performing the trick, it is far more unlikely that the spectator will notice the wax.
Natural - for those who are not really bothered and just like to use the standard colour.

The wax comes in three tin sizes: 15g, 30g and 50g. As a guide, the standard Michael Ammar tub contains around 35g.

A 50g tin of wax will give you enough wax for approximately 300 performances.
A 30g tin of wax will give you enough wax for approximately 180 performances.
A 15g tin of wax will give you enough wax for approximately 90 performances.

Please note that these tins only contain Card on Ceiling wax and they do not come with a routine or instructions on how to perform the effect.

Dude That's Cool Magic Presents - PK Blista by Mike Busby

Do you like PK Ring magic... BUT don't like wearing a ring?

The 'Dude That's Cool Magic- PK Blista' is a PK utility device that allows you to perform incredible effects seemingly empty handed. It's silent, virtually invisible and tiny enough to take up no pocket space. If James Bond used a PK gimmick, this would be the one!

With a magnetic strength comparable to a PK ring, the PK Blista has the added advantage of being significantly quieter in use, opening up a whole new world of performance possibilities!

Each PK Blista (2 x supplied)

• Contains a very powerful neodymium magnet with an incredible pull strength (these little guys are seriously strong)
• Has 3mm of rubber coating dulling any unwanted loud 'Clunks' and 'Thuds'
• Has generic flesh colouring
• Has no sizing issues
• Is easy to ditch and apply

In addition join your host and creative thinker Liam Montier on the
accompanying 22 minute DVD as he discusses the gimmick in more detail.

Not only will he teach you methods for ringing the gimmick in and out and handling it in a totally natural manner, he will explain the following awesome (and easy to do effects):

Coin in Bottle - Borrowed coin penetrates through the base of a soda
bottle.

Coin Thru Hand - A marked coin vanishes from the back of your hand,
only to reappear within your clenched fist along with some previously
discarded pocket change.

The Mental Bag - Five spectators each randomly select a coin from a
bag. You use your mentalist powers to predict who has taken which coin.

Time to get Blista-ed!

Clone Coin by Mark Lee


This is a super clean 'Special' coin that can be shown clearly as a regular coin. There are two effects included, but once you see the ingenuity of the coin, there are many more possibilities. Effect one, is a simple coins across in your hands effect. You start off by displaying two coins openly, there is obviously nothing else in your hands. You place the two coins, one at a time, and very cleanly, from your right hand to the left. You now pick the two coins up with your right hand, and display them. They are then thrown one at a time into your left hand (you can even hear them clinking), and you grip them, making a fist with both hands. You make a magical gesture, and although your hands never come anywhere near each other, you can now show that you have one coin in each hand! Effect two, is a coin matrix effect. Using four coins, which are shown and counted, and two regular playing cards, borrowed if you wish. The coins are spread out in to a square formation. Two of the coins are now covered by the playing cards. When one is lifted, a coin has gone, and when the other card is lifted there are now two coins under it. This is repeated, until all the coins are now under one card! You can now show you have only two cards and four coins! These are available in the 10p coin version as standard, but you can order any coin you require. - Standard 10p coin plus instructions - £25.00 + £2.95 UK postage or £4.95 overseas.

Tri-Color Nightmare Plus

From Gay Ljungberg: This is my best trick! I invented it in 1984 and has sold many, many hundreds over the years, it is always a hit at magic conventions. I have liking for doing "ungimmicked versions" of tricks, that are normally performed using gimmicks. This one of those.

Two effects:
PROFESSORS NIGHTMARE IN COLOR
You show thre unequal ropes, one is red, one is blue and one is yellow, counting them from hand to hand. With one simple tug, you make the ropes equal!

LINKING ROPES
Two spectators each choose a rope and you take the remaining one and you all tie a knot in the rope making a circle, a ring of rope. You gather the three rope rings in your and try to pull them a part, but they are linked to each other! The ropes are real, the knots are real and everything can be examined.
No magnets, no extra pieces of rope, NO GIMMICKS! Only knowledge is used. You receive three ropes in different colours, an illustrated instruction PLUS a dvd showing the effect and in detail, step by step, teaching you how to setup and perform the effect.

Bonus effect: ORDER OF YOUR THOUGHT
The spectator may tie the ropes in any order he likes, formig a long rope. You have a red handkerchief visible in your breast pocket. You pull out the handkerchief and there are two more handkerchiefs, all three in the same colours as the ropes, and tied to each other in the same order as the ropes. For this bonus effect you can use your own silks (not included).

You can perform one, two or all three effects in a sequence. Easy to learn! (Gay Ljungberg)

Hi Ho Hats – Uncle Wiggy

What a pickle! Here’s a young man, eager to set off to wizard school, but he’s missing something. Can you guess what it is? That’s right! A hat. His Mum offers to help him, as she’s got a trunk in the attic with all sorts of hats, but things go from bad to worse, as you can see!

In desperation, our young hero asks to go to the Hat Shop. You display a folder, which represents the Hat Shop, and the children can see a picture in the open window.

The shopkeeper tells the young wizard that he only has one hat left, but he thinks it will be perfect. The young wizard is not so sure! There are no other hats in the shop, as you prove by peering through the window, but the children help with a magic spell, and another hat appears in the window. Better still, it’s a wizard’s hat! - but it’s far too big! More magic happens and as you can see from the happy boy wizard, everything comes out right!

Stunning artwork, dazzling colours and a brilliant, highly topical plot all add up to make this one of the best new children’s tricks for a long time. Highly visible (the cards are approx. 10” x 7”) yet the whole things packs completely flat. One of the earliest copies of the trick went to Ian Adair. Here’s what he said: “Thanks for sending me the latest ‘Hi Ho Hats’ effect. It’s terrific!!! Great artwork, beautifully constructed and a wonderful theme. I performed it today and the kids loved it! It will be in the show forever!” And here’s another letter from busy professional, David Tomkins (Cheeky Dog Entertainments): “Many thanks for ‘Hi Ho Hats’. Was expecting something excellent and got it. Very pleased and it’s straight in the show.”

Impossible Card Magic

Impossible Card Magic is a perfect title for this DVD. Every effect on this tape is impossible to figure out when you first see it - you will be fooled!

All the routines are show-stoppers and all the methods are new and original. This is card magic that will fool and entertain.

Visually, the card jumps up to the middle of the deck, then near the top, then becomes the top card! The card magic contained on this DVD is not easy but each effect is well worth the practice. Highly Recommended!
