Robert or "B" Smith is an incredible creator and entertainer, and this looks diabolical.


". You approach the spectator and remove a joker or any card out of the deck. "We will use this as the wild card but we'll get back to that in a moment. Please will you select any card?" The spectator has a free choice of any card, nothing is forced. The selected card then gets lost in the deck. "Letís get back to the Joker." You remove the joker and place their initials on the corner of the joker. "Remember the joker is the wild card. Letís make this moment more memorable and take a picture." You now borrow their camera phone and take a picture of the joker with their initials. The spectator confirms that the picture on the camera phone is the initialed joker. The phone is immediately handed to the spectator and placed face down in their hand. "If I take the joker that we just took a picture of and give it a shake you can see that it changes to your selected card". With a closer examination the spectator sees that her initials are now on the selected card. Now you go in for the kill. "If that card changed in my hand then the picture in your hand should have changed tooÖ" BIG reaction as the spectator just realized that they saw you take a picture of a joker with THEIR initials on it and it changed to their selected card with their initials on it.

This effect is huge and it's a worker.

Here are a few important points to remember:

Uses no gimmicks
Easy to do
Freely chosen card
Uses all borrowed objects
Requires no setup
Use any phone with a camera function
Also as an added bonus you will receive an additional bonus effect using cards and a camera phone.

This is a great routine for cell phone magic. You can use your own phone or a spectators phone. You can use any deck with a Joker. It can still be done without the Joker but the impact would not be as great.

Anyone do this with something other than cards?

I don't, but you've sparked the creative juices now Shaun :P

I really love the idea of this effect. Two things with those who use the Storm.. Well the camera is a little laggy and right now I have to learn to do something that I have done one way since I can remember... Im one of the 10% percent of the population that has this Gift, who some say is a curse.

I don't really like this trick at all.

That's just me being honest.

I'm thinking of getting this one, but I've spent too much on magic already.. Not sure if I want to invest in this one right now but in the end I will probably end up buying... lol
