Watch the trailer here: https://www.ellusionist.com/wow-money.html

Everyone knows WOW, everyone can perform WOW... but not everyone wants to. Putting a playing card inside a sleeve looks odd to most audiences.

With the 2019 WOW Money gimmick, because it's introduced as your slimline RFID wallet, you can now perform WOW without causing suspicion.

Take advantage of these flawless visuals with something that looks natural to your audiences.

This is just one idea for an impactful presentation...

Imagine yourself asking a spectator to pull out a credit card and hold it in their hand.

You tell them that thieves can steal money off your Visa by using electronics*, watch how fast it happens!

In a nanosecond, with your WOW Money gimmick near the spectatorís credit card, the $10 bill changes visually to an examinable $20 note... or any bill you choose.

Of course this isn't technology, it's magic.

Lloyd Barnes & Ellusionist teamed up with Masuda to bring WOW into the modern day.


Perform:

Bill changes.
Penetrations.
Angle Z in a new way.
THE APPLICATIONS ARE ENDLESS.

In fact, WOW Money is so versatile, even the stunning slow-motion bill change might be the most boring thing you can do with this gimmick.

It requires ZERO sleight-of-hand and is available in US Dollars, Canadian Dollars, British Pounds & Euros.

With the Masuda exclusive, Ellusionist will be the only place for you to get your WOW Money.

An essential every day carry for magician.

Order TODAY.

I think this looks like a really cool idea for wow gimmick. I used to have mine round my neck as a visitors pass lanyard, but it didnít always suit the environement. A more deluxe version with an actual wallet on backside would be quite nice, but I can see this working really well.

Not trying to be a Debbie downer but how does this look anything like a slimline wallet or money clip?

I think Wow is visually great but they still havenít cracked the mystery of what that strange looking card holder actually is.

The best idea I've read on these forums is adding a clip to it and making it a name tag.

Agreed. Plus, at this price? Seems like at the $45 range, would make much more sense if it looked more like a real minimalist/slimline wallet. I guess they're trying to argue that the weird look can be explained as an "RFID" protective wallet, but... it doesn't look like any RFID protective wallet either. Why not build the WOW gimmick into the ID holder of a wallet or something instead? That, at least, could have a more ready/credible explanation.

Donít worry. The wallet is coming as an add on. This is going to work out very expensive.

Yup they solved 50% of the issues with WOW without thinking through the other 50%.
Trading cards for $$ makes a lot of sense ONLY if you actually make it looks like a wallet - which it certainly does not.
For $45 it should have been built into an actual leather wallet (which could also be gaffed with other wallet-type gaffs).
I'll pass.

Of course they could have gone the other way and made it completely contrived...ala Tenyo but that wouldn't command $45 either.

Could use it and say itís a little device which protects the magnetic strip on your credit cards but you also use it to keep money in

The demo video shows some good and useful ideas of using this prop. Besides the basic effect, WOW Money can do much much more. Imagination will be the only limiting factor.

IMO WOW Money is a very versatile prop with good potential. Worth considering. Nice upgrade to the original WOW.

I donít know how all you guys stay so on top of what is and isnít available in the world. You must all be very trendy.

I have to admit that I had no idea if there are any wallets on the market that look anything like WOW Money, so I spent a few minutes searching. What I discovered is that there are some very strange wallets being sold that donít look anything like any wallet Iíve ever seen.

So my conclusion is I think 99.9% of laymen are going to believe this is your slimline RFID blocking wallet if you say it with conviction. Now magicians are another story, they will say ďno, thatís a WOW gimmickĒ.

The trouble with having it built into a leather wallet is you lose the transparency and I think itís important to be able to see through it. So maybe a good alternative is to pull WOW Money out of your regular wallet.

I agree with Ustaad that this is a clever product with a lot of potential. I wouldnít be so quick to judge it.


A couple wallets on the market:

Ah, I had missed that. Though, that's still a card version of Wow, rather than a money version. Why not do the money version in an actual wallet. That seems much more reasonable.

If Im not mistaken, Wowlett doesn't come with the wow... its just for you to put your own into, so you could just put this one in there if you wanted to.

Why does the chap in the demo video keep referring to that weird plastic sleeve he's holding as his "wallet"? Why is he poking a wooden coffee stirrer through it? Why is the corner of a playing card now attached to a bank note?

Is this the least organic effect claiming to be organic in Magic history?
