I consider The Scanner to be one of the most innocent imp. device/pad you will ever come across.

It is perfect for real time and pre-show.

The reset takes about 5 seconds.

It uses an ordinary pen/pencil.

It is very low tech and costs next to nothing to make.

I use it all the time to read minds close-up and even stage!

When purchasing The Scanner you will also get access to a secret forum where we will discuss everything about The Scanner.




What they are saying about The Scanner:

"José has discovered a method for an impression device that is very deceptive and almost impossible to detect. It is a useful alternative that some may find suits them better than the existing methods, including my own. I recommend giving it a try." - Thom Bleasdale creator of Tommy Pad

"Another winner from the devious mind of Jose Prager!" - Tom Mohan

José is a clever thinker/creator. His Duplo and Peeki have been wonderful to use.

I know we can't compare IMP devices because everyone has different needs, but can The Scanner be used in a pad like the Butterfly?

Yes it can be used in a pad like the Butterfly in fact it is designed to be used on a note pad.

I sent José a PM with questions that most likely seemed like I was fishing. That wasn't my intention, I'm just familiar with IMP pads ( not a professional by an stretch, just a dedicated hobbyist/sometime paid performer ) and didn't need another "oh, that's kind of clever" method.

He offered to let me look at what he's come up with. The problem with that is if I don't like it I have to say so. He was fine with that as long as I could detail why I didn't like it. That was fair to me.

I read it ( was surprised ) and made it up. I actually had the materials here because of the grandkids being in school. The instructions were clear as too what to do. I looked up at the clock to get an estimation of a first time construction, keeping in mind that over time it would get easier to do. It took 4 minutes. If it wasn't for arthritis, I could have done it faster.

I tried it on myself and the bloody thing works. I took it next door to a magic pal's to try it out. I used a horrific looking pen. Weird shape, colors, etc. As expected, he asked to see the pen to figure out how it got the information. I wasn't doing a gag, but he knows magic and I didn't want the pad to be questioned. But it was funny.

The Scanner is organic, simple to use and as much as I love billet work and peek wallets, this is hands down the fastest, stealth getting information device I have used.

A plain, ordinary looking pad and pen allows for obtaining information in the fastest, most casual manor possible. I love sneaky, electronic high-tech, but if I can go sneaky, organic low-tech, that's the path I take. José Prager's Scanner is the real deal!

How is the reset, can you do it without leaving the room?

A fast reset, done in private.
The inexpensive nature of the device means that it would make sense to have a few to hand if you need to repeat the effect (to different people/groups, one would hope) in quick succession.
But it takes about five seconds at most to reset.

You get good milage from each use before reset (in some ways)

reset is pretty invisible really if you can time it right, I can reset it REASONABLY successful just when turning the page for someone else to write something down

In some environments this might work but bear in mind, Adam, that one of the five senses might detect the reset if the conditions were not right. I hope you get what I mean from that Smile

Used the Nabble link in the pdf and it did not access the forum.
It merely went to the Nabble create a forum page.
Anyone have a clue how to access this forum?
