Review: The Mindpod by Joaquin Kotkin and Luis de Matos

Review of The MindPod by Joaquin Kotkin EFFECT The basic effect of Mind Pod (as you might have glimpsed from the title!) is a divination of a song from the mini iPods. I should clarify, the iPods are sets of cards made to look like mini iPods. The set comes with all the “mini iPods” you need for the effect and the songs come from these iPods. Also included in the set is a compiled Spotify pl...[Read More]

Review: Ice Qube by Kieron Johnson & Mark Traversoni

Ice Qube is a signed coin inside a cube (well, not as regular in dimensions) of ice effect. The spectators can handle the cube of ice and see that the coin is indeed inside the ice. The ice is put inside a small transparent plastic bag and a small hammer or other device is used to break the ice in order to reach the coin inside. Sometimes, the ice is misty and it is not easy to see the coin i...[Read More]

And where is the impossible location?

Review: Silk to Chocolate (Ferrero Rocher) by Sean Yang

The Silk to Egg effect has become a classic magic trick and is performed by many magicians. If you think about it carefully, why would anyone want to change a silk into an egg, other than the fact that a hollowed out egg is a perfect hiding place for the silk? An egg has no good reason to be in a magician’s performance unless the performer is doing magic with chicks and eggs. Most magicians wou...[Read More]

Review: NU FLASH by Zamm Wong and Bond Lee

Nu Flash is a very visual bill to playing card which can be used to change a bill to a single playing card, a name card, an envelope, a pile of cards or even a full deck. There are many visual card changes around. Most of them will just require you to throw the gimmick card into the air for the change to occure. For Nu Flash, you’d need to do a few moves before the bill can be changed. If you ...[Read More]

Review: COFFEE CUP by Mariano Goni

I have always been a fan of cups and balls, especially unique ones such as Mariano Goni’s. This routine uses 1 cup and 3 balls made of modelling clay. The routine starts with the performers VERY cleanly placing the 2 balls into the cup one at a time and keeping the 3rd ball away. The 3rd ball then re-appears inside the cup. This is repeated like the standard 2 in the hand 1 in the pocket type of ...[Read More]

Review: Devour by SansMinds Creative Lab

Devour is a novelty card effect. Novelty card effects never fail to bring smiles from the spectators. Here is the effect of Devour: A spectator freely selects (no force) a card and signs it. The performer slides the chosen card into the center of the deck and places the entire deck inside the card case. He takes a marker and draws 2 quick straight lines on the back of the card case to represe...[Read More]

Review: Flaming Coffee by SansMinds Creative Lab

Fire has always attracted people’s attention. A burning car, or a building on fire, will always make the headline in the news. This is the main reason magicians use fire in their performances. The fire wallet has been a classic prop for magicians for the same attention grabbing reason. This has been adapted to fire in a book. So far, no one has thought of applying fire to a cup of coffee. Th...[Read More]

Review: Flash Forward by Jason Palter

One of the greatest gimmicked decks to be invented is Burling Hull’s Svengali Deck. Unfortunately, it is readily available in shopping malls and most magicians shun its use. This is quite unfortunate because a well-crafted routine using the Svengali Deck can effectively disguise the methodology and truly wow the audience. Jason Palter has come out with a Svengali Deck using flash cards that are...[Read More]
