Another idea, if possible, is to have a bag on the table full of blank faced cards all folded up. They name one, reach into the bag and pull one out, first reveal is it is their named card which is magical in itself. Secondly, people from the group pull out cards at random and open them to reveal they are all blank. Alternatively obviously they can pull cards out first and then you reach in and 'pull one out'. Reveal you got the named card only for them to have blanks. There will be plenty of ideas for this, sounds great!


That is BRILLIANT!

Hi guys, I had a chance to chat with Marc Lavelle today about the Skynet Project. He referred to quite a few questions from here and was more than helpful answering pretty much any question you have about this crazy cool new release. https://www.facebook.com/MurphysMagicSup......13764175

All the best,

Luke

Thanks for the chat, Luke!

Also should say a massive thank you to Javier for his contributions on the explanations (he kindly added his input after I had filmed the core of the project, so didn't have opportunity to thank him on camera!)

What's a good force bag to use with the Christopher Williams idea?

Pocket space is paramount to me. I stopped using both Perfect Cents/Exact Change because I needed one pocket for the Advocate (which for me is still the best i..x system). This has most probably an attachment to pin it inside a jacket/hoodie/sweater so it might be a good solution. I'll wait for some reviews first, I am not totally sold on the MCF - often I just need to add an extra card to a deck so the prefolding doesn't work. Don't know - maybe I'll pass on this one.

So full disclosure, I was sent a unit. I just finished watching the download, and while I have yet to try this out, its very clever. Currently I use Instagrab as my index of choice, which I pair with Mint Box. During the holidays, that combo was one I used a lot at my gigs. However, if I had Skynet at the the time, I think I would've used Skynet with Mintbox instead. The reasoning is, you wouldn't be limited to a certain number of cards that could appear inside the box throughout the night, which is great in case groups chat about the magic they saw that evening. For casual performances, I'll still use Instagrab, but for shows, I will switch over to Skynet.

On the download you learn how the gimmick works, ways to modify it, non card uses, and other uses of the gimmick besides using it as an index. I look forward to actually performing this soon!

I know exactly how this works and think it is one of the most ‘real world’ practical tools I have seen on here for ages.

I typically perform in a 3 piece suit sans the jacket (vest and slacks). Would this work for me?

Marc was a performing guest at our monthly show last night (Sylar and Steve Rowe)
We specifically asked to see him perform this, without telling us the method.

I watched, and watched and was totally fooled.

Speed at which the card was 'found' was indecipherable in performance, everything flowed naturally and the routine was great.

Needless to say I'm ordering one.

I saw Marc use this on Monday. It is indeed very clever and a useful thing to have on you. I can see the potential for so many routines. It's a super idea!

Is this thing going to wear out over time and need replacing?

He addressed that in the interview with Luke Dancy.. (see post above) He said it is very durable and will last a very long time. Which is why they chose the materials they did. (No leather)

Thank you for you kind words, Angelo, Steve and Josh, coming from fellow creators that I admire, they mean a lot to me!

Looks like you might need a jacket of some type . Could be wrong. But looks like you can reach the desired card very quickly . Love the any playing card. Went ahead and pre ordered.

Although I am in a t-shirt and cardigan in the trailer, I do usually wear a 3 piece suit when gigging. The adaptability of Skynet is perfect for the majority of clothing combinations. - it does of course have to be worn 'hidden' and 'accessible' (nothing unnatural, really) so onesies and morph suits would not be suitable!

I think you could use a folded up card in bag and then use Jay Sankeys paper clipped to reveal the freely thought of card, my mind is spinning with different ideas at the moment


Javier goes into this in his part on the explanation, along with mystery boxes, and other quarter-folded card switching utilities, of which there are some great ones! I used to be 100% be behind the signed cards being the best card tricks, until I started stack work - I then realised the power of the thought of card routines!

Perfectly good question! My 'final prototype' has been with me since September 2017, and has been on me at every gig since, and also a few times out and about for fun. I received my units of Skynet yesterday, and naturally opened one (First time experiencing the full unboxing!) - My USED Skynet looks as good as the day I received it - I literally compared them!

Just a quick clarification to address a comment on a video where Skynet wasn’t mentioned... this CAN be used in a suit. I’m not sure the people speaking about it had seen the item, watched the trailer, or watched the video specifically made for dealers!

If you want to see a 360 performance, feel free to check it out:

Very nice! By the way, video would not play on Chrome. but did play on IE.

Gave in...ordered it. Should work well with Kennedy's Mystery Box.
