Even though she is blind, she is still blindfolded. Theorically, this strengthens the effect and in this case more with the blindness. My concern is that this smells of performance mentalism, rather than medical science. If she were to be a mentalist, would this be in the news?

Yes. I have it on good authority it's down to the work of David Copperfield in a dress.

I mean the book obviously, not the magician. p.

Lady's name is Gabriele Simon.
I think that I would have to see this to believe it.
If she is really blind, why the need for the blindfold.
I would rather have a handful of scarves in a paper bag(that she had not supplied) and ask her to pull out the blue one.
Then again, after losing my right hand years ago, I have had the ability to feel the faces of cards and tell folks what the card is.

Just looks like she's peeking to me. Perhaps they should put her hands through a small wall so there is no way to peek. I worked with a drummer who was Legally Blind but he could still see enough to get on and off of stage and see colors.
Still.....Call Randi!
