Hi there,
I am trying to find any menatlism type effects that I can work into a powerpoint presentation, so it must therefore not involve any props only the pc. any ideas?!?!?!

cheers

I've seen a program for the Princess Card trick, but it's done the e mail rounds and rather spoiled the effect, I think.
Whilst not mentalism, there's a superb 'Google' effect out there, but I'm not saying any more!

I think "The Knights Tour" is PC based. I do not have it, nor have I seen it, but I have heard about it.
Practice what you present.

Present what you practice.

That´s right. "The 21st Century Knight´s Tour" by Lior Manor, written by Ken Weber is a flash film, you can present the chess board a large audience with just a notebook, a beamer and this flash-file. But of cause you have still to learn the trick, it´s "just" a tool that helps you. The technique itself is not the trick.
But it´s very nice to pack small and play big.

Hi
thanks for the nice words about the Knight's Tour

I have some more magic that is done on a flash program (the PC reads your mind)
I will publish it in the future

I just released the Big Trivia Game
This is Not Magic or Mentalisem
It is a special tool and a game to add to any corporate magician/mentalist
I will write more about it later
It was sold on the last PEA meeting of the minds in San Jose
I will sell it also out of the PEA very soon

I would go for the Princess Card Trick. Its true that it kinda made the rounds on PC but very few muggles can actually figure it out, so its still powerful, even for those who have seen it. It would be easy to do with Power point, a digital cam and a deck of cards. You could get more juice ot of it by doing it towards the end, and telling them that you have been subliminally influencing them all along to choose the card you want them to choose, a la Derren Brown.

One problem with the Princess Card trick for a GROUP - as it sounds like you'll do that PPOint... 10 seconds after the effect - people will compare and find out the cards that vanished was not the same card... BUSTED... good for a 1:1

Of course, if you are doing a webinar type thing where everyone is on their own computer and can't talk to each other - then it'll work!

I've seen the Princess Card trick done in a powerpoint pres, in front of a very large audience. Worked really well.

Speaker gave a 'Derren Brown' preamble, about his previous slides suggesting a specific playing card. Flashed up the 'choice 5' for a couple of seconds. Patter... then the 'final four' flashed up. "Hands up everyone who's card I successfully predicted and removed.." All hands up.. much laughter.
Then the speaker revealed the workings of the trick. MUCH more laughter!! Worked into some chat about observation and perception.
