Any issues with spectator opening the box? I'm concerned that a spectator might see some moving parts while opening the box.


I really don't thing there will be any issues. I've done this in a number of shows now and not once have I had to worry of them finding anything or seeing anything.

Also, when the spectator opens the box, it basically "locks" everything in place if that makes sense. So there's no need to worry for them to find anything once opened.

Hope that helps!

If you're using as a billet switch then surely they're not looking for anything anyway? If you're using it to change one model of mobile phone into another then obviously they'll be wondering where the other one went.

True, but if you are switching one phone for the "same" phone then are not. I think there's a lot of potential with that. Placing their phone in the box for safe keeping, having them open the box and the magician takes "their" phone and smashes it in a roulette style game while a stage hand strikes the box and loads it in a prediction chest etc!

I wonder if this could be fashioned to look like one of the old "happy meal" boxes like this. Lol.

These are meant for billets not phones me thinks. This is a very old mentalism concept with a new twist.

Anything else is a magic trick.

A magic trick makes the box suspect.

Looks really cool but what I would like to know from those that have it, how well will this hold up to someone picking it up, turning it upside down, and shaking it???? I can just already see that will happen(At least for me and who I do tricks for)..

If they happen to do that nothing will come out, but that is an audience management problem not a problem with the box (IMHO).

That's annoying, I wanted to use it for a lottery prediction with at least 36 billets.

You might be able to use 36 billets, but they'd have to be smaller. Mark mentions that the ideal amount is 2 x A4 sheets of paper in total, cut up to the size you need.

Perfectly formed -. Best purchase this year. Well done Mark Shortland
and Vanishing Ink

Oh and although Mark says you can't fold down the box flat and get it back in the original packaging, I have found that you CAN if you fold the board along the crease that is already there on the long flap (Those that have it will know what I mean) - ie not making a new fold, just using one that already exists. Can't wait to get creative with this.
