In August of 2018 Calen Morelli and I met in Las Vegas for the first time.

I had heard Calen was carrying around a black briefcase with never before seen methods inside.

This is where Calen showed me his prototype for his metal phone routine.

Once back in Portugal, my obsessive mind took this concept and engineered an internal locking mechanism that took this beautiful routine to a level some might say borderlines a piece of art.

This was an unexpected collaboration that brought about a truly amazing offering to the magic community.



Metal Phone is a state of the art gimmick that allows the performer to create a reality shattering moment using a borrowed bill or credit card and what appears to be a normal phone.



The partnership between Calen Morelli and Me resulted in a state of the art gimmick with no equal:



⁃ Each Metal Phone is built in 304 AISI Stainless Steel, meaning it will not get stained overtime and will stay forever with the same beautiful finish.

⁃ Patent pending locking system that only with an external tool allows the effect to reset and be performed again.

⁃ The manufacturing process of each Metal Phone is very complex taking over 2 days of machinery work + 1 day of hand labor to finish.

⁃ Metal Phone is very easy to perform right outside the box



Metal Phone is much more than your traditional magic trick. It is piece of art that you will be proud to own.

Comes complete with the gimmick, silicone case with slit and five camera stickers.

Metal phone is designed by Calen Morelli and engineered by Joăo Miranda.


Each unit is proudly manufactured in Portugal.

That’s a fun take on the old brass block matchbox and also Jamie D. Grant’s Industrial Revelation.

$249 for metal + $20 for 100 "camera" stickers + $20 for 20 phone covers + $20 for silicone case to look more like a phone in case you want to make a switch after using your phone in a previous trick.

Total $309 to gt started with this effect.
It is a beautiful piece of engineered metal, but making it look like a phone costs even more. Good luck with this thing, I hope it is well received.
Pay it forward

Not trying to spoil the fun here. If you like this and can make this work: good for you. However I personally can't see a spectator thinking anything other than "there was a hole in this, but you somehow closed it." To me this screams "puzzle". A beautifully made puzzle, absolutely, but a puzzle.
Taking the sticker off to reveal it's not a phone is a nice surprise, but if you think people will believe that you pushed a credit card through a solid piece of metal I think you are fooling yourself. It's just like cigarette through quarter: a surprising moment, but not something that will leave them mystified. To me this is Tenyo 2.0.
Please check regularly if you are becoming the type of magician Jerry Seinfeld jokes about. (This applies to mentalists as well.)

^ I was thinking the same thing. Very Tenyo.

It does look pretty nice and all but it lost me at the part when you reveal "Guess what, it's not a phone after all" and you start peeling off stickers. Between that, and the slit case, it now just seems like a magic store prop.

There is a simplicity and a purpose to Industrial Revelation that just makes sense. The block of steel in IR is just that. A block of steel.

Here you are basically saying at the end, "it was never a real phone to begin with...just a trick phone made of metal." .

Anyway, I do hope others enjoy it and I'm sure it is very well made.

I don't know how yet, but I feel there's an ability to perform this with Optix in there somewhere in a mini set.

The one thing that’s going to completely f@@@ this up is if someone types in metal phone into google and the advert appears, or a youtube secret revealed video.

I hope this has been considered.

Start with Inject. Then Silhouette. Then Optix. Then this. Smile

I would suggest the camera lens stickers but nothing else.

That looks really good, and probably a bit easier to carry around than IR. I really love my IR and it gets great reactions. So....I don't know what to do!!!

I actually feel it doesn't matter what version you use, they will all generate the same reactions. I think the phone is just a more modern version of this type of effect.

I wouldn't want anyone to drop this!!!! I would be very cautious who you hand this to for examination.

Nice. This is Industrial Revelation by Jamie Grant.
2020 is the year of stealing and re-marketing other magicians life work.
No laymen can google Jamie’s version and find it.

You do know Industrial Revelation is based on a really old idea, yes?

Don't lose the external unlocking tool otherwise you will be left with a very expensive block of metal. While I like the updated, modern look of the phone, it is WAY expensive especially with the add-ons as compared to IR. Since IR is not currently being manufactured, this might be an alternative, albeit and expensive one, for those who want to do this type of routine.
