The Basic Effect
The performer hands the deck to a volunteer and invites them to choose their favourite card, placing the rest of the deck aside. Without touching the volunteer or the deck, the performer reveals the chosen card.
An almost infinite variety of effects can be performed using this system, from predictions to envelope routines.
The reader features both wireless transmission and on-board vibration cuing. At only 77 x 33mm it’s incredibly small, with a range that allows you to detect cards and other tagged objects with a single gesture. The battery will last for over 10 hours on a single charge and is both rechargeable and replaceable.
The Insight deck (Phoenix edition) is the very first electronic deck to be designed from the ground up specifically for magicians. The chips and antenna are incorporated into the cards during the manufacturing process, ensuring that each card is perfectly thin and flat. The deck can be shuffled and handled in the sameway as an ordinary deck. Single and double sided blank cards are also available, as well as ultra-thin adhesive tags that can be used to make your own tagged objects.
And finally … iPhone users can unlock the wireless features of their device by purchasing the Insight Reader app (extra £15 directly available from the App Store). This allows for wireless cuing, reprogramming and more.
Dimensions: 77 x 33mm Battery life: 10 hours (rechargeable & replaceable) Range: 11cm to Insight playing cards, 9cm to adhesive tags Includes the reader, 52 x electronic playing cards, velcro wrist strap and instructions.
PLEASE NOTE – The app for iPhone is an additional £15 purchased directly from Apple App Store on your iPhone, and will unlock additional features but both the app and an iPhone are NOT essential in running the device. Insight comes with everything you need to perform hundreds of different effects using the reader provided in the package.
