Very few tricks have this range. You can perform this as a mentalism effect, teleportation effect, card trick, close-up, on stage, or in the street.
A card is selected or named and lost in the pack. The deck is handed to the spectator, who looks through the cards confirming that the selection is still present. Without touching the cards, you cause the selected card to vanish. It is found in some impossible place. Sealed in an envelope orÂ taped to the wall orÂ locked in a steel safe hanging over a pool of alligators. Anything you can dream up: that's where the card travels.
The gimmick is very simple, but the DVD goes over some amazing applications. Kenton Knepper describes a very simple wayÂ to performing the effect, as well as a more complicated psychological method.
Either way you do the trick, the impact stays the same because the magic happens in their hands. They see the card there one second and the next, it vanishes; and you can be standing way over on the other side of the room.
Geek Factiod: This trick is named after one of the most famous mentalists of all time, Joseph Dunninger.Â Under the nameÂ "The Amazing Dunninger", he read the minds of such notables as Theodore Roosevelt, Thomas Edison, and Pope Pius XII.
