This is something I put together... some cool parts and electronics .... a neat way to find a selected playing card, remote operated. Made completely from plexiglass...Anverdi would be proud!

That's really cool - I especially like the spinning thing with the sparks! How do you get the sparks?

Thanks for all of the great comments...the sparks were achieved with two pieces of flint like the kind used in the lighters. These are mounted on the part that turns after winding the wheel up. Under the flint is a circular piece of rough black sandpaper. When all spins the flint rubs off the paper and creates the sparks!

Good! If more cards tricks are involved, this can be make more great effect.
