Hello friends.

I am very happy to present to you my version of the mercury fold which I named the SCI-FOLD.

Sci-fold is a project about a card fold. Smile

My version is a faster version from an outer reality point of view.

You put the spectator's card back into the deck, close the pack, and you're done.


Here is the promotional text:

Do you like the Mercury Fold? You like to go straight to the effect?

Imagine putting the card back into the pack, closing the deck and the card is already folded.

The Sci-fold is my take on the folding card method.


With the mercury fold you have to control, turn, and do the move.

With the Sci-fold, you close the deck it's done.

In this project you will watch the method from different points of view.

that's not all, you will find 2 routines: the card in the wallet, the card in the box.

Plus, useful theory for all of your card magic from a professional: how to shuffle after folding, how to cut, body position, and being more natural with your playing card.

"Definitely worth your attention!" Steve bedwell



The video contains voice over in English.

IT looks and sounds interesting but I agree a new demo video would be helpful. This one I could not watch the entire video. It got me dizzy watching it.

I thought Magicinsight had to be exaggerating as it’s only 58 seconds but I laughed while watching. You’re right! I’m glad I’m not epileptic ! Lol.

But the handling of the box. The flip. The watching yourself do the move with a claw grip. Please redo the demo and let’s see how great this could be.. Smile

So one of the selling points is that it's fast. Then why is the only time we can sort of see it done, the footage is sped up? Makes it difficult to judge its speed.

Thank you very much for your feedback.

I have to tell you that it's the second worldwide product I released.
The other one, Social Assistant is easier to see/ understand.

For this vidéo, the magic company tell me to remove some part because it's not explained in the video. But for me the main point is to understand the concept of the folding sequence.

I posted much more video example:

Intrigued when I saw this post. Angry when I saw the original trailer. Disinterested when I saw subsequent trailers.

Might be something here, but the trailers ain't selling it.

Ouch, Don't know if I misunderstanding your post, but it's sounds ...

I'll add, that it's a new way to fold a card. You like the mercury? Here's another fold.

As you can see, you put the card back in te deck, you close it, it's done. That's all.

Don't know how to describe it.

Calvin, what you want to see? What you see is the method. You put it, and it's done.

Imagine a trailer for the mercury fold... It will look like this vidéo, isn't it?

Thank you for providing the second demo video. The second video demo, while not flashy, shows the fold in real time. It looks very quick and smooth.

I was just discussing the Mercury Fold with a student. This looks (in the later videos!) fast and impressive.

I downloaded this from penguin today and I like it. It's not any faster than the mercury fold but it is less noticeable in my opinion so will use this from now on.

Dedikc it looks great in your videos so well done on that . It will kill a lay audience and that’s all that matters imo Gaz 😊

Thank you for your feedback. The fold is fastest in term of steps.

With the mercury, you have to come back to the deck, here, you close the pack, it's done. That's why It's faster.

Thank you for your feeback. It means a lot to me.
