I thought there was a thread on this recently but can't seem to find it..

Anyway, if it was just my imagination, here is the link to the next Sansminds project:

It looks really nice, but I'm just not very appealed by the giant black envelope, if it was normal sized, I would love it!

I agree with you.. the effect is cool.. but Im curious if the envelope can be folded up to fit in my pants pocket.

It's such a visual looking trick. Looking forward to some reviews on this. I may just have to take the plunge myself if not :)

I like it and I wonder if the envelope is only one or if it is a set and I need one enveloper per performance...

I would like if someone could submit a review...

Hate it. There's no way this fools spectators. It's so unmotivated.

Agree , true it's unmotivated , but I can't deny the fact that it's visual .

Im thinking of another problem here , when the two bills change , it may not occour strongly to some audience , reason being they see two diff bills before , and after the change they still see two diff bills after . Though the bills switched , some who's not paying attention may not notice what happened .

Reason I pointed this out is cause , when I first viewed the trailer and saw the change the first scene , I actually didn't understand the effect until more changes are shown . It may be just me though ... but maybe it's a valid point ☝️

I was pleasantly surprised by this, having been somewhat underwhelmed by many previous SansMinds releases. It wins on simplicity - and it is a nice visual effect. I could see this being built into a nice littel routine in a street magic context, though I don't think I would perform it in a more formal environment. I've done a more detailed review here: http://www.bicycle-cards.co.uk/2017/09/06/sans-minds-tunnel-review/

Isn't that upto the individual performer? To motivate.

You put money into the ends of an envelope because it's a time machine. You are creating a fold in the fabric of time.

Well, it sounds like nonsense but here's what it would look like if it was possible.

Isn't magic about possibilities? We, magicians, are the curators, the caretakers, the purveyors of the possibilities of magic..... Can I show you something?

Or some such nonsense.

I remember one of the first magicians I ever saw as a kid. I made an attempt to listen to his patter. Even though I was very young I realized he wasn't really saying anything that made sense. This was my first inspiration into the world of magic.

Anyway, this is a great object for a motivational speaker as a demonstration. People love this stuff.
