I think Cesaral's Calculator is an excellent prop. It is not just another calculator with certain functions switched. In fact, no calculations need to be done at all. For example, you can enter three figures into the calculator (out of the view of the audience,) and then put the machine in a small box and give it to a spectator to hold. Now, ask any three spectators to stand and shout any single digit. Let's say they should out 3, 8 and 2. You instruct the spectator to remove the calculator immediately and on the display is 382.

Of course, you can use it to predict the total of calculations, if desired, or even perhaps better, to force a large number to eliminate, for example, the use of a deck of cards in Mental Epic.

It's a killer. Probably my absolute favorite mental "hour" trick is Collector's Workshop's Gift of Time. Of course, it is over $2,000.00! This little unit from Cesaral does exactly the same thing. No delay, no waiting, the prediction is instantaneous.

In addition to virtually any number, this unit is also set up with pre-programmed predictions, around which you can build a routine. One of them, for example is 1492 and I can think of a lot of possibilities for that number.

The calculator is fully examinable and fully functional. You could literally have this on your desk as your everyday calculator and then do the trick for someone who was visiting.

Hope that helps.

I know but why pay so much . I use The calculator from guy bavli 50.00 works for me with this calculator the spectator Is asked to square rt the random numbers before the final outcome this will make It more difficult for the mentalist. I already have the total prediction In a sealed envelope. also the calculator looks like the one from the office . 10 Stars for this baby ********** ! Please do not buy It I want to be the only one using this !

You are comparing apples to oranges. As I stated, the Cesaral calculator can be used for non-mathematical predictions. Try this with Bavli's:

You hand the spectator a small box telling him it contains your calculator that you take with you to the store to keep track of your spending. You never touch the box or calculator from this point out.

You tell the spectator to empty his pockets and count all the money he has with him, currency and change. Let's say he does so and has $24.87 total. HE opens the box and HE removes the calculator and on the display is "24.87." Now, that's a killer trick, uses no calculations or mathematics to suggest a tricky calculator, and is about as direct as mentalism can get.

I'm sure Bavli's is a fine machine and your $50.00 was well spent, but to compare it to the Cesaral calculator is like saying your Ford Pinto gets you where you're going, just like that Porsche does.

Yes, Cesaral Mental Mind Calculator is really incredible!!! It works very well and arouses no suspicion provided you use a proper routine and presentation for it!!! JUSTIFY the calculator and it will be a miracle, the most little suspicion and it could be over... I'm a little exagerating, but it's the idea...

Oh, and btw, my last post concerning the justification of the calculator is true for every calculator you want to use in magic... My opinion of course...

Thanks! I have developed my own routine and am very happy with it (and so seems to be the audience...). But I'll have a look at the links! Thanks again!

Goldeneye007 is correct, although I doubt you'll ever be able to justify why you'd have a prediction on a calculator instead of written on a piece of paper... There is absolutely no reason why you would have used the calculator to write your prediction. It just seems so stupid. Plus it's completely impossible so they'll assume you can change the total remotely.

I have personally bought from Cesar his Calculator with receiver hidden inside the pen and let me tell you…that was the best purchase of the year! Hands down.
I am using the calculator to demonstrate Benjamin Arthur's style of lightning calculation and it is working like a dream. It is not easy to perform this type of effects remaining humble and interesting, but I have a very special character and people really love this type of demonstration. I am really thankful to Cesar for inventing such a great prop. I really love it and highly recommend it.
