Insight PRO includes a deck of 52 electronic playing cards. Invisible RFID chips embedded in each card transmit the suit and value to the Insight reader, a miniature device that will respond with a coded vibration or send the information to a nearby iPhone.

Now with the ability to detect a stack of up to three cards simultaneously, Insight is better than ever before.

The Basic Effect

The performer hands the deck to a volunteer and invites them to choose their favorite card, placing the rest of the deck aside. Without touching the volunteer or the deck, the performer reveals the chosen card.

Included are seven incredible new routines by Colin Cloud and Mark Elsdon.

The Reader

The reader features both wireless transmission and on-board vibration cuing. At only 77 x 33mm it's incredibly small, with a range that allows you to detect the cards with a single gesture. When connected to an iPhone, the reader can be positioned under a table for a truly hands-free performance.

The Deck

The Insight deck (Phoenix edition) is the very first electronic deck to be designed from the ground up specifically for magicians. The chips and antenna are embedded in the cards during the manufacturing process, ensuring that each card is perfectly thin and flat. The deck can be shuffled and handled as normal, and is designed to last a lifetime.

And finally...

An iPhone is not included with the device, but if you have one already (4S and above) you can unlock Insight's wireless features by purchasing the Insight Reader app available from the App Store. Apple Watch support is included amongst a number of other new features.

Note that this is an optional feature only - the majority of the effects can be performed using the reader alone.


Dimensions: 80 x 35mm
Battery life: 10 hours (rechargeable and replaceable)
Range: 11cm from the Insight playing cards to the reader, 10m from the reader to a nearby iPhone.
Includes: the reader, 52 electronic playing cards, velcro wrist strap, instructions and routines.

    Philip asks: does the reader need to be very close to the card ? if so then is the only way to preform the effect in the trailer is with the reader under the table in conjunction with a cell phone ?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: It needs to be in proximity to the reader, but can be hidden in many places (such as the card box).

    Jean-Pierre asks: Two more questions 1) are the dimensions 77x33 mm or 80x35 mm and which is the third dimension? (I read that the reader can be hidden in the card box) 2)is the range (of 11cm) the range from the chosen card to the reader or from the rest of the deck to the reader?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: 1. I don't have the third dimension, but it will easily fit into any card case. 2. it is from the chosen card to the reader. I hope that helps!

Customer reviews for Insight Pro



A caveat: I've only just begun working with this, so my "real world" experience is nil. First impression: Fabulous! A couple of worries I had when buying sight unseen were instantly assuaged. The cards, though "plastic-y" seem COMPLETELY normal and will withstand any and all inspection. Insight Pro comes with a one-year warranty. The optional, downloadable IPhone app is NOT free, but quite expensive at over $20! I'd say it's very much worth the price, as it adds both flexibility and versatility to the functionality of the card reader and allows customization, should you be so inclined.
