Performed by Dynamo on his TV special!

Imagine if you could borrow an iPhone from anyone, twist it, and restore it right there right then. Hand the phone back to its owner. This, is insane..

Cell phone has grown to be a very intimate and emotional attachment to almost everyone is this generation. There is just no better object to borrow and shock people with. An extremely commercial and easy to do miracle that guarantee to generate HUGE reaction.

Remember, the phone is completely safe at all time; you could use your own iPhone or any borrowed ones if you happen to use a different model. A modern miracle for the modern magician.

We hope to have a gimmick for the iPhone 5 model too. Until then, we have to borrow our spectators 4and 4S models Smile

Lay people might not notice, but if the one side did not twist, why did the buttons on the side move. I noticed that the first view.

I guess if you do not linger on the change for a length of time, and twist back to normal, it might fly.

Or it might be better to use the lower half where there are no teletale buttons.

Very good effect if , big if, you can find an iPhone without a case on it. The same problem as the other iPhone effects out there.

What's with all these IPhone tricks today? Am I the only human being (and also all my friends) without a freaking iPhone???
Magic creators should support more devices than just one stupid phone (or should I call it status symbol)?

How happy were the days without smart phones and social platforms...the days with real friends and not just lame people on a friend list.

Don't get me wrong I'm very open to new effects. I really like Cell by David Stone but I don't get this iPhone hype...

Just my 2 cents

Cheers

Looks like Paul Harris's "Screwed Deck" with an iphone.

Looks neat. I don't have an iphone either though.

And the close up of the hand 42 seconds in looks like the profile of some hideously deformed guy with his eyeball bugging out. I thought that was "Skulkor".

I don't know about in Germany, but in America it's not a status symbol. It's simply the most popular type of cell phone, so it makes sense to tailor effects to a device that millions of people carry with them all the time.

David Stone's Cell is sadly at least 5 years out of date with where technology is today.

I don't believe we've seen a REALLY great iphone trick yet. We seem to still be in the beginning stages of coming up with ideas (Palming in and out iphone-sized objects to place on a person's phone is going to look awfully primitive as a method in a few years, I suspect). But it's definitely something I hope people still keep working on because magic with borrowed objects is awesome and I'm glad to have something other than money to borrow and perform effects with.

I think this is great! Considering the working, it should be much easier to handle without using the cloth like iLogo (which I perform A LOT). From my experience with iLogo, people go crazy seeing things happen to their own phones. This is even better. My order is in..

Aaron. How do you get past the iPhone case problem? Everyone, or nearly everyone has one on their iPhone because they're so fragile.

If you don't have a iphone, you can buy a dummy.

Hi gimmickless,

thanks for the advice but then I need to buy a gimmick for a gimmick Smile
That makes no sense to me Smile

I just wanted to say with my first post that it's not for me. One doesn't have to buy any new effect.
I just stay at "Truly Screwed" - a pack of cards is also cheaper than a phone Smile

Cheers

I hope they got permission both from Paul Harris and Dynamo, although judging from their ethics on some of their other releases, I doubt it.

I really like the idea, but I was hoping for a more "twisted" look rather than the bottom half looking as though it just flipped.

I also noticed the discrepancy with the buttons on the first viewing, as did my wife.

A nice idea, but at this stage I'll be holding off.

Before everybody thinks this is a Mystique Factory release, it is not. It is released by Skulkor, we are merely one of the many companies to sell it (it is also going to Murphy's Magic soon).

If someone asked me to take mine off I'd politely say no. It's a nightmare getting on and off, potential scratches for one and I've got probably the most popular case going.
