Topic: Shocking device & Mindreading.

Is there a device that you can buy where you can touch somebody with your fingertip and it shocks them? I have been into street magic for some years now and I want to bring it to the next level....Mindreading the only problem is I don't know where to start. I don't want to do the classic star, wavy line card mindreading. I learn how to do the pure mindreading. I was wondering if somebody could point me in a direction on where to start. Maybe a dvd or book will do.
Thank you so much

For mind reading there are many books and DVDs. Go the PENNY FOR YOUR THOUGHTS forum for the best advice.

Yeo, you are not in the correct forum. to your shocking thing: hocus pocus relased such a thing for quite a price. and yigal m. will offer a similar adice too. there is already a thread about it.

Yes, Yigal Mesika has just released something commercial, though there are other ways of doing this. Luke Jermay has a similar ideas in his material which are suitable for mindreading effects. Worth a look, particularly if you are doing anything impromtu where you don't know if the spectator has a condition that an electric shock really wouldn't help...

The next step of street magic is mindreading?!

The two ideas on shocks from Yigal ang HP have been talked about before on the Café, do a search for them. The mind reading wouldn't be so next level me thinks but hey what do I know.

"Shocking" would be the device you are looking for, check out hocus pocus website.
For the second part of your post where you wanna mind-read, listen my friend this is not street magic, if you are serious about it for God sake don't perform until you are familiar with the whole subject, and I don't think it will work as Street Magic, these are not card tricks anymore. If you want to start with Mentalism please browse the Café and you will find tons of answers to your questions in the "penny for your thoughts" forum.
Good luck in your search,

Check out Whit Haydn's book on Street Magic. He has a great mentalism piece in there for walk around work.

I do not use mentalism for street magic there enough card routines and coins to keep me up for years, mentalism I leave for my shows.If I get stucked or bored I do anykind of tear or peek and it's just fab.
Shocking is like a dream come true, with the right presentation people will freak out, of course if you tell them you are made out of electricity it will be suspicious hehe. But amazing device. Earn money and get it, very recommended.
