Any good ideas for presentation?
Right now, I have them select the card (Ace of Diamonds) and then tell them they have 4 chances to find their own card. I then tell them I'll give them the power of the cards. I then ask if they would be impressed if all four cards in their hand were the Aces.

Check out Jay's original presentation. It absolutely fries the laity.

First, don't use the aces. Use a more insignificant cards like nines.
Here's my idea.
Spec. #1 picks a card(?) (say it's a 9D) and Spec. #2 tries to sense where it is by touching some cards.
Four cards are touched, removed, and the deck placed aside.
The four cards are counted face down.
The top card is turned face up, and it's not even close (say a QS) and it's obvious that #2 wasn't concentrating when this one was touched.
This is laid aside.
The next cards are turned, shown, and tabled face down, each getting closer to #1's pick.
9S, followed by a 9C and, getting even closer, a 9H is shown.
The selection hasn't been found, but...
#2 is asked what the selection was and tells you.
The four cards are shown, and the QS has changed to the selected 9D.

Hope this gives some ideas.
