A magician asks a spectator to choose one
card from a deck of cards, no force at all. The spectator signs the card; the signed
card is returned to the deck and the deck
is then shuffled.
From the beginning of this effect, the spectator
has been wondering about something the magician
has hanging around his neck. It is a board
with a BIG and Spooky Eye imprinted on it. He explains it is “Mind’s Camera” which
can read and shoot photos of everything,
even someone’s mind.
He puts film inside the camera, so it’s ready
to take photos…The spectator is now asked to think of the
chosen card in his/her mind as strongly as
The conjurer removes the film out of the
camera and shows it to the spectator.
WOW! The back of the card has shown up on
the film!! But it’s not enough for the spectator
He reveals the other side of the film…. The
card face appears in the photo, and even
his/her signature is captured on the film!!! WOW! It was true that the camera can read
and capture everything…
As magical as this is, the wonder worker
explains that the camera can make the picture
become real. He makes a magical gesture….
The card in the film is removed to be not
just a photo, but something real of this
world… It is the actual card that the spectator
had earlier signed…
