Criss Angel did a routine on Oprah Winfrey recently where he had shipped a locked box to Oprah a week prior to the show. He had the box suspended from a rope and kept it there while he randomly picked three people from the audience and asked them things that he could not have possibly known (single word answers). He then had someone open the box and remove a cylindrical container which was handed to him (CH). He then removed a piece of paper (the only thing in the cylinder) from it and all three words were written on the paper. I've seen similar routines on the market. If I wanted to do the same routine, is there one commercially available that would do the same thing and if so, what is it called?

The same way Criss does everything... stooges and camera trickery. Smile

Go to the illusions section... there are two or three threads about this. It's called Master Prediction System.

Thank you videokideo. You're right. It's called the Master Prediction System and is made by Doug Malloy. It sells for about $3000.

It's a "disorder" that seems to be spreading quickly to other performers. It's even crossed overseas apparently.

I predict 'Magic on TV' will soon be dead (discounted by the general public as all being done by stooges/camera tricks), and Live Shows will have a renaissance. Not that that's a bad thing...

That would actually be a really great consequense.

It's almost a reality I agree. But it's taken longer than I thought it should.

I saw this. He used a split screen. Did you notice that his hair appeared to be teased a little higher at the end of the segment, than it was at the start?
