The open use of electronics with magic, does little to enhance the magic. As a matter a fact it detracts from the magic and tells the audience that trickery is involved. It destroys the previous display of the producing cards magically. I see no reason to put LEDs on a playing card, it does nothing for the effect of producing cards from the air. His showing of the hand before the 1st card production was more interesting then the light up cards.

I must say he has got me on this one, cards from nowhere. It is a good mystery and magic effect.

I’m ambivalent about the flashing cards. Just the two didn’t ring my chimes. I would have liked it more if the entire act was done in low light and all the cards were flashing. That would have been real eye candy!

His cards from nowhere was a good use of the black art principle. I’d like to see him build an act using the two. I suspect that it would be very upbeat and contemporary.

I am speaking from a lay audience view, you are speaking from a magicians view.

The lights do not do a thing for as a magic trick. How many light of cards do you see on the market in the homes of people playing poker. None!

I see Ciryl's efrorts into shifting paradigms on how should a Magician deliver his Mysteries as a must into the 21st Century. It's like that japanese guy doing iPad Magic - Pure awesome!

Plus, the audiences do know that there is trickery involved in what we do - Some say "this is witchcraft!" but they still know there is something there. And luckily the majority of those just don't care. They like to be entertained, and whatever we can use to add something extra is worth, IMO, even though it might not fit everyone's taste.
