How have you 'tricked out' your ORDINARY THREEFOLD WALLET ?

Well, I installed a 400w sub, decaled some slick blue flames over the new baby blue paint job...

Actually, I just picked up Kollosal Killer and found my wallet to be a bit inadequate, so I'll be hunting for a new one and installing KK this weekend.

I don't carry an ordinary 3 fold wallet. Just a money clip.

On the fly, I just have a few things in my pockets at all times. Night out? I have a smaller Fanny pack with a bunch of various sized compartments for Cards, Coins, etc. If I'm not wearing a jacket.

Anyone do something like adding in a 'mirage principle' based device in any of the credit card slots for predictions or card revelations?

Anyone embed a small magnet inside the wallet for some watch stops? (I can do this as I am not yet a credit card wielding, super consumer American...)

Any types of peak type gimmicks that could be put into a regular wallet?

Anything Else?

I don't carry a wallet -- I use a cig case and keep all of my cash & cards (credit, ID, etc) in it. It's got a tribal Ace of Spades on the cover.
I do however keep a 14 of Spades [red Bicycle back] facedown in the back of it, for occasional perplexing uses.
Or if someone wants to be Mr Annoying Knowitall, I simply state "I have one card here" pull it out, place it on the table. "Tell me what it is." "You can wager money if you want, and I'll match it." >:-] ;P
[Note at no point do I mention it's from a deck, or one of the 52...]
I'm not just a magician, I'm an interpreter of Reality.
Underground, above ground, whatever. I don't need a label, thanks.

I've just got a new wallet or will have when it arrives as I've ordered it off the internet,it only cost £4 or $2 and you get to have a message printed on the inside to personalise it.
so I've had printed you will choose the six of hearts so I can perform a card on wallet instead of card in wallet.

Just a comment. Does this change the psyche of the effect from "how did my chosen card get in the wallet" to "how did he force me to choose that card"?

That's an interesting point meyegr it all depends on the effect I suppose,i thought it might be a nice added touch to the paul Harris effect overkill,you could also do a version of card to wallet with the wallet and then show the prediction as an extra kicker,at the end of the day it depends on how well you can force the card and how well you present the effect.
as the wallet is so cheap and I need a new wallet for everyday use I can't go wrong.

Warren - you know what would be good is if you got two of those wallets - have a double selection and perform the overkill with a card to wallet finish with the first card. Reveal the selected card engraving and put the wallet in your pocket (or perform an invisible switch). Perform a color change with the first card into the 2nd selected card. Reveal the changed engraving on the wallet.

It would eliminate the "how did the writing get there" and into a "how did it change?"

Shawn Farquar has a "card in wallet" version using the Mullica principle on the documents/credit cards plastic thing that some wallets have. Ask him about it at http://www.magichampion.com/

Ive been really wanting to trick out A wallet. What are some thing possible that I can do at home or have cheaply done. Like Mirage Principle I have no idea what this is. I only have one trick wallet which is a himber well and my own but all it is is a cleavor loading pocket. What I really want is like a jack of all trades wallet. maybe not even doing anything to the actual wallet but just having like all the props neccessary in it.

A Mirage Principle based gimmick/ insert will allow you to show a folded card in your wallet - keep it in view throughout your performance, and when ever you like, you can take out the card to show that it is the spectator's selected and signed card.

Another version of this effect would allow the performer to have a folded piece of paper in the wallet and later pull it out to show that it accurately predicts a non forced item or event.

Your code is correct, it looks like the website is actually unavailable. Might just be that the server is down...unless it's a typo.

In MarcPaul's Mind2Mind DVD, he showed a wallet routine which you
can use any wallet with that special 'quality' that allowed you to
reveal a written word or number. Pretty neat in that you don't
'destroy' the wallet and it can be used and examined normally.
