It's a quirky thought provoking odd effect and I'm happy to know it.
Add a Okito Voodoo doll to Madisons idea and you have a bizarre act that fits in an Altoid tin.



Imagine the amazement when you pull out your A3 pad from an Altoids tin.

Please check regularly if you are becoming the type of magician Jerry Seinfeld jokes about. (This applies to mentalists as well.)

Bowers you took the writing right out of my hands! I agree with you simplicity is the best for all miracles of magic. KISS!

I like those ideas Scott. The idea of covering it with a silk and then showing it to have moved is really nice, as you can then 'up the ante' by showing it actually in motion in a subsequent segment. Gets a bit more mileage out of it and I think it would seem like completely different thing happening, because in the first there's time distance between the pencil moving and the needle being shown to have moved, while in the second part they happen in sync, so it seems really different. Obviously you wouldn't do the clock idea twice.


Ya if you wanted to up the Ante as you said you could may be do it with 2 selected cards the first one under the cover of the silk and the second they see the needle move.

Just to stop any misinformation - you definitely don't need a big a3 pad for this to work...

people just need to spend a little time thinking about things and trying stuff out...

Yeah agreed but it looks far better the further you are away from the needle imo Gaz 🙂

I am using an A5 (5.5x8.5) pad and it works great. Its a small sketch book by Canson that is 50lb medium tooth paper.

Am I the only one that was able to completely figure this out after watching the demo video?

Probably not but I figured it was worth supporting.

It's easy to say "I figured it out" but not so easy to say "I invented it"..

Pretty cool, but I doubt that many will actually do this effect.

Only time will tell. This will kill with a good presentation. I have a formal show in 3 weeks and this will be in the show. I usually close my act with my haunted key routine and going to use this as lead in to it. Before all the trolls get started, I know 99.9% of the magicians just use the basic key concept and don't get overly excited about the HK either but my routine is strong enough to usually get a standing O. I'll report back after the 15th.

Great review alex, and your daughter shows not only how easy it is, but also how little time and thought peter eggink and aeon sun put into developing this 'effect' for the $20 (currently discounted to 14.95) penguin are charging for this self working trick any spec can duplicate in an instant. by introducing the stationary needle you have created a layer that helps hide the obvious method!
well done, and she is very cute!

Very nice, Alex. The idea of the 2nd needle is a very good one. And your daughter's performance might just be my favorite performance of a magic effect, ever - she is adorable!
It's all in the reflexes.

Saying it again, on the download you are shown how to write and the needle not move...doesn't take much to experiment with this and make it seems extremely fair, as well as cancelling out certain assumptions...
