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 options, a larger gimmick for you to work with. (Twice as much as the original UI)
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.
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 are some 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!
Time zone - Imagine a spectator thinks of a time, a second spectator removes 3 cards from the deck, when the thought of time is named the second spectator reveals her cards... you guessed it, the value of the cards match the thought of time!
Name and Card Routine - This is B. Smiths killer card routine with multiple, impossible climaxes! Imagine not only being able to know the card someone is thinking of, but also know when they THINK 'stop' while dealing through the deck. Not only do you tell them when they thought stop, you now tell them what card they are thinking of. Not only do you tell them what card they are thinking of, you have them turn over the card they mentally stopped at and it is the thought of card! Not only do you do all that, you now have them think of a person that is important in their life and without any words you reveal the name of that person! This exciting and powerful 4-5 minute routine lacks no down time and is worth way more than the price of this kit. In fact, this is what B. Smith would close his shows with all over the world. (When he's not crying tears of blood)
Business Card Wallet - You can do anything you want with this, all while handing out your business cards! This is invaluable for the working magician. Imagine impressing a potential client by having them think of anything (name, word, picture, ANYTHING!) and having them write it on your business card and put it in their pocket all while you are turned away. Now imagine the astonishment when you reveal that thought! You've just given them a story to tell for the rest of their lives, along with proof for them to keep and show others, which happens to be YOUR business card with YOUR contact information on it. Psypher pays for itself!
Plus - Three additional routines, psychology, performance tips, peeks and more!!
Let's face it, this isn't just a DVD or just a Gimmick, this is an entire MENTALISM KIT with endless possibilities. Why pay close to $100 for one peek wallet that's less impressive when you can have a business card wallet, gimmicked card box, or an impression pad, along with a DVD full of ideas and routines all of this for only $40!!
Coinvexed 2 by David Penn $150
After signing a coin the spectator experiences something extraordinary as the signed coin bends within their own hands. The spectator can then keep the coin as a souvenir that freezes the moment of magic forever.
No switches! The coin that the spectator has signed is the same coin that bends. Only the coins and the sharpie are seen and the sharpie is perfectly normal. No special chemicals! Just a diabolically clever gimmick that hides in full view.
"David Penn has the best solution for a signed, bending coin routine I have ever seen! This is sure to become a regular performance piece for many professional magicians."
- Nicholas Einhorn, Magic Circle Close-Up Centenary Magician
"Finally, a coin bending gimmick that I actually want to use!"
- Marc Spellman, leading European mentalist
"This is too good to sell!"
- Braco, World renowned inventor and magical historian
"This is what we have come to expect from David Penn. Revolutionary new thinking and an expertly structured routine that is now destined to become a modern classic!"
- Chris Priest, Millennium Champion of Close-Up Magic
"Charlie the Chicken and I never leave home without it and we look forward to damaging the economy forever!"
- Max Somerset, TV magician and star of "Max Magic"
Comes complete with gimmick and instructional DVD.
TeleThought Wallet - Small $59
by Chris Kenworthey
TeleThought Wallet is one of the most diabolical utility devices in magic. Its potential is limitless.
As they say "the sky is the limit," here. Virtually any "mind-reading effect" can be performed with the "TeleThought Wallet." Design duplication, book tests, telepath experiments can now be presented under immaculate test conditions. Imagine using the "TeleThought Wallet" for preshow work! Or combining it with a "Brainwave Deck," "Invisible Pack," or "Precognition Deck." There is at least one other wallet currently on the magic market, which could vastly enhance its potential and ingenuity if it employed the same material presently utilized in the "TeleThought Wallet." Something to think about.
Wallet Dimension Approximately 4 1/4" x 2 3/4" (10cm x 7cm)
New Spike $210
A complete sellout at Blackpool
Four inches of cold, hard steel ground to a point, and rising vertically from a solid wooden base.
Will you drive your open palm down onto it with force? Blindfolded? Take the chance, prove yourself. A life without pain has no meaning. Give your life meaning.
Three unmarked wooden blocks are displayed and one four inch steel spike. The performer can have his back turned, be blindfolded, or even leave the room while the spectator places the spike into one block (free choice). The spectator is then instructed to cover all the wooden blocks with Styrofoam cups. The performer walks over to the three cups and instantly smashes his hand on two, leaving the cup with the spike underneath untouched! An incredible feat of mentalism!
Ideal for stage, cabaret, cruises, and other larger venues, this hand-crafted beauty is a versatile magic prop that can be played for comedy or high drama! Whichever way you choose, you will leave your audiences spellbound!
Please note that there are no outer markings and the system used is sure-fire and no-fail 110% safe! Everything can be examined before, during and after.
"I like both the compactness of the apparatus and the simplicity and dependability of the method. It works like a charm and with a modicum of care and caution by the performer, ending up with a spike through the hand should not occur. But a word of caution, like any other dangerous stunt (remember me, I'm the guy with the three pistols) you must not be careless or suffer from brain cramps. The method is excellent but that does not mean accidents can't happen if you allow your mind to wander when it should be focused on the performance. If you're a professional, SPIKE is definitely recommended."
- Larry Becker
Murphy's Magic Supplies, Inc. is not liable for any misuse and any injury that may incur due to carelessness on the part of the performer and will not sell it to anyone under the age of 18.
Comes complete with 3 wooden bases, spike, velvet bag and DVD. Includes BONUS special gimmick so you can start on this today.
Perfect Bend Spoon $25
Perfect Bend Fork $30
This has to be the most incredible metal bending we've ever seen! And it looks just like it reads! The performer picks up a spoon on the table, holds it at his fingertips, and proceeds to concentrate. Slowly, eerily, and methodically, the bowl of the spoon begins to bend until it is at a 90 degree angle. So far, nothing original, until you TAKE THAT VERY SAME SPOON and display it in its bent position, dropping it on the table. The best part are the conditions:
No special set-up involved
The gimmick is nearly invisible
Can be performed completely surrounded
Can be instantly repeated with no reset involved
You can choose whether the body of the spoon or the bowl of the spoon bends!
The Perplexing Pen $25
The Perplexing Pen
If you like to perform mental effects. Here's a must-have addition to your repertoire. Imagine this: You balance a ballpoint pen on the rim of a glass. The pen sits still, perched on the edge of the tumbler. Then, as if touched by an unseen hand, the pen slowly and visibly rotates! But wait, there's more! Then, eerie as it may seem, the pen falls off the edge of the glass! No one, you included, go near the pen. Many presentational ploys are possible. Use the Perplexing Pen as a demonstration of telekinesis, in spirit effects, or as an adjunct to other "haunted" effects.
Consider these key points...
The pen can be examined
No threads or magnets
Only one pen used
No gimmicks to palm
Nothing attached to the pen at any time
Yes, the pen writes

Kenton's Little Book of Wonders by Kenton Knepper $20
About 60 pages packed with original Kenton
material never published before. Here are some of Kenton's cherished secrets
such as his work with The Hoy Deck which sent mentalists reeling recently. This
5 1/2 X 11 inch booklet has more truly creative and honestly practical effects
than most books three times its size.
EVERYTHING you enjoy can be found here. Close-up, mentalism, stand-up, weird magic. Plots never considered previously, and wild takes on a few forgotten classics. Here is a taste:
Pop popcorn in your hand - Spectators HEAR it actually popping!
Learn of Kenton's O.K. "Okito" box which uses hinged lids and mini-mint boxes. Yes, HINGED on lids as an Okito Box. This will create a new revolution in the Okito Box tradition.
Don't just melt a spoon - squish the bowl like it were putty. Is it putty? No! The bowl while seemingly molten instantly becomes solid again and the hands are seen empty. NOT like anything you have seen before. This is different.
Props are taken from a large Altoid type box, as the performer displays his unusual abilities. BUT, the box instantly seals itself shut with tape, postage stamps and more in a split second and in full view. The tape must be removed before the box can be opened to once again show all the props inside (including a borrowed item). This is impossible to describe and weird to experience!
A key chain with a light is held over a spectator's hand. The spectator attempts to light it with her mind. That never happens. But what does happen will surprise you and your spectator for some time to come.
There is MORE in this little booklet to be sure. Any one of these effects could have been marketed on their own, as many are doing with manuscripts these days. But Kenton, as he begins to wind down his writing for performers, wanted to cram as much as he could into one little booklet. That he has certainly accomplished.
Several secret groups were privy to small portions of this work last year. Each commented on how these methods were going to change their own methods, effects and presentations. Each group noted that at least several likely instant-classics were contained in this booklet.
This is truly a Little Book of Wonder which you can't afford to miss, and at a special price to top it all off.

An Approach to Dr. Jaks' classic "Supersonic" (without the stand).Effect: A spectator is asked to freely shuffle a deck of cards. The mentalist displays a book on divination, explaining that he has been studying Cartomancy-the ancient system of telling fortunes with playing cards.
An envelope is then given to the participant to hold and the performer says, "Even though we've never met before, inside this envelope is a Cartomantic reading that I've prepared just for you. Let's see if the system works!"
The top five cards of the shuffled pack are taken and displayed by being inserted into the edge of the book. The spectator is told to choose any of the five cards. The selected card is, for example, the four of clubs. The four unchosen cards are shown to be all different. When the fortune message is removed from the envelope, it reads:
"You have a compassionate nature and strong leadership potential. Your sense of humor is admired by others. Your lucky card is the four of clubs!"Includes detailed, 8-page booklet written by Phil Goldstein and fully-illustrated by Tony Dunn and the five specially-printed cards on Bicycle stock that make this effect possible.
