Hey guys so this past week I was over at the Vanishing Inc booth at Genii and they had this amazing new switching utility device called Amazebox. This thing is truly amazing. It's completely hands off as the spectator is the one who does the switch. These were flying off the shelf the whole week. I got one myself and have been having a blast with it. It looks and feels just like a cardboard box, because that's all it is, so it will pack flat. I have a show coming up soon and can't wait to use it, it's so deceptive. I know that they said currently this is not online, so I'm not sure when they'll have a trailer or any more information. Just thought I'd post this so people could keep an eye out for it!

Yeah it's a super clever gimmick. Plus since its just a cardboard box it looks super innocent

I've gotten a few PMs about this. To clarify, it's a box slightly smaller than a shoebox made to switch out billets. It resembles a ballot box

I predict every working mentalist will want to own a copy. Having seen this built from the ground up I can say it is 100% genius.

A flat pack, cardboard billet box.

If you are looking for something that will attract ZERO suspicion this is it.

Whenever I get something new, I tend to try it on my family first just to see their reactions. With this my brother was so confused as to how it worked because I never went near the box. It really is that clean. I mainly so close up shoes but after getting this I'm planning on doing more parlor gigs, just so I can use this!

Amazebox is now available!

Once in a while we come across a trick with a method that is as inspiring and whimsical as the effect it creates. "AmazeBox" is the best example of this that we've ever encountered (think of the wow factor of the best Tenyo items...but this one you can use onstage for hundreds of people). It is simply, elegantly this: a box that switches and forces without you ever touching it. No electronics. In fact, the method is most closely related to origami.



Imagine this: you ask everyone in the audience to write down their favorite song (or first kiss, or three-digit number, or whatever you want) on a slip of paper and drop it into the cardboard box at the foot of the stage. The box never goes out of sight and (truly) nobody touches it. During your show, you invite a spectator to approach the box and open it, then reach inside and remove any slip at random. In the act of opening the box, the spectator unknowingly switches all the audience's papers for an entirely different batch of slips you prepared in advance. Use this to force a favorite song or number or celebrity name. THEN, you can use the information written by the spectators later on in the show

Mentalists will immediately identify the many, many opportunities this little box affords. It's as light as air, can be decorated or repurposed in any way you like, and is quite possibly the only effect we've produced that is easier than easy. The spectator switches the papers. You don't even touch the box.

We're absolutely thrilled with the ingenuity of this incredible little box, and the way the box is designed and folded makes the switch automatic. It's impossible to fail and, we think, impossible to figure out. The fun, toy factor is undeniable, but true professionals will find this piece invaluable. We are grateful to the creative Mark Shortland for working with Vanishing Inc. Magic on this exciting new release.

Here's what others are saying!

"Mark Shortland has created an ingenious and devious solution to an age old problem. Natural looking, hands off in operation and simple to use; this might well be exactly what you are looking for." - Luke Jermay

"This is one of the most exciting new tools I have seen. It not only is super cool and clever, it's extremely versatile and completely practical. This is something I will use". - Dan White

"Amazebox is enormously practical, and is as ingenious as the best Tenyo effects, but built into a stage prop that looks entirely normal" - Joshua Jay

"I'm using AmazeBox in my show. As soon as I saw it I knew that every mentalist and magician could find a use for it in theirs too!" - Andi Gladwin

"I've never been so excited for a magic utility device in my career!" - Kyle Marlett

"This prop is beautifully invisible to the audience. Organic and powerful. I can’t wait to try new magic with this Amazebox!" - Justin Flom

"I've performed a Q & A act for over a decade. I've tried so many methods to appear natural and hands free. Bags, boxes, envelopes. This is the most innocent looking method I have ever seen! And completely hands free. I'll take 2. When you see something this good, always buy a spare" - Paul Draper

" The best gimmicks in magic are the ones who fool you even when you know how they work. When I first saw this I knew what it was and what it did, yet I didn't see it happen! Seemless, elegant and beyond deceptive! Best mentalism gimmick I've seen this year!" - Spidey

"Very clever design and practical for working performers. Deceptive and hands-off, what more could you ask for?" - Eric Dittelman

I don't think it is a good idea for any of you to use this. (That way I'll be the only person using it.) Smile

This looks really genius!!!

I totally agree. This looks awful. No one should buy this... (except me...)

I already something on the other thread, but this is a brilliant idea. It looks like something that will become a workhorse in the mentalism community.
