In the same way you can have a CTW

But for ease of use - you would be better off waiting until later in the year when I release my i* - that holds 52 different oranges

No Magnets
No Memory Needed
Perform Surrounded
Resets in Seconds

There are some clothing restrictions though


you might need more sometimes people when you say name any orange say one with a bill loaded or a plastic one for a chop cup load or one with a citrus gimmick. Just sayimg you might need more options.

Does someone know the difference between Adovocate (which is included free in Osyn, an awesome card switch method) and Skynet project? With the former, you can extract the card chosen by counting 1 to 3, just as announced for the latter. But Adovocate is rather complicated to find the card. Is it really easy to find the card by Skynet project?

@lyoma nothing alike any index out there.

the good thing is that it’s wearable and easy interchangeable, nice idea and bit of a kit!

Congrats Marc! Smile

In his At the Table lecture, Rick Merrill did Card To Sock and in the explanation, he actually had a 52-card index built into his sock. It was hilarious (and obviously just a gag).

I already have a good one : the advocate that came with Osyn. It needs two. If skynet project too, it does not interest me. The video suggests that you should choose the right one by asking number or suit to take time. If Skynet uses just one i****, you don't have to divide the answer, and can extract the very card directly.


Just the one purchase of Skynet will allow all 52. - I will be totally happy if you wanted to buy two though, to give the spectator choice of red or blue back! :-D

Skynet is super easy and quick to find the card.

Any "REAL" reviews from workers other than dealers?
I'm ready to hit the buy button but, been there done that, only to add to the junk drawer.

I think mine arrives today. I’ll try and share some first impressions ASAP, hopefully by Monday when I get a chance

I'm not sure how much I like this... I appreciate the thinking and production for sure. But I don't think it'll replace the ind*xes I make myself. It is very clever. The set up I think you'll either love or hate...

I'm not sure how I feel about this yet.
It does limit/restrict your wardrobe choices, and is bulky.
If you tend to work sans overcoat and with a tucked in shirt, this becomes problematic.
If this is you, and you have the pocket space, a traditional i**** may be a better way to go.
Batman fans will love it though Smile
I'm already considering cutting it down to a half pack, and should have waited for more reviews.
This isn't meant as a swipe at the product. I do like Marc's bag catch presentation btw, and Marc seems like a great guy for the record.
The device is well built though, and should last.
There are many removable parts, and you'd have to be fairly aware not to lose them.
For my purposes this may not be a match, but the juries still out. This is all first impressions.
Your mileage may vary.

Years ago, I played around with various indices and making several of my own, including a movable one that would disgorge the card into my hand from my necktie and a rotating belt index inside a static belt. I never was totally satisfied with the various models, especially the ones that had to be worn. I finally worked out a "system" that requires very natural movements and requires no body or pocket equipment. However, it's very idiosycratic and would not be easily adaptable for others to use.

It sounds like Marc has created something that works extremely well for him. The real test will be whether other users agree that it is the best possible system for them, after giving it proper practice and testing in the field.

A friend showed me his Skynet and I like the fact you can show the card from all sides and give it out too. My favourite devices for any card called for remain Bang On and Incarnation by Marc Oberon though.

Tony Miller is the king of indexes including many creative wearable indexes. Still debating skynet. Sounds interesting but I wear suits with the trabucco holdout installed on both sides so i’m guessing that would be a problem.

I wear a sport jacket with a shirt tucked in my pants. Sounds like this would not be a good fit for
me. The initial discussion before the release on this "seems" to be disingenuous. I'll save my money.
