"I can't imagine being a layperson and having a card trick change everything I know about the laws of nature. What a fantastic, impossible moment you've created, and it happens right in their hands." Chad Long
It's rare to find a trick that is incredibly surprising, overwhelmingly unusual, easy to do, and leaves your audience with a souvenir they'll keep forever. Welcome to "MiniBook Pro".
A card is selected, signed, and returned to the deck. You invite your spectator to visit a website on their own phone to see the new state-of-the-art laptop you're getting. It's a tiny laptop. It's cute. You then "pull" the mini laptop from their phone screen.
You claim the laptop will find their card. You get them to "type" their card into the device. Sadly, because it is clearly just a funny little toy, it fails. Oh no! The magician is in trouble...
But, just before your audience start to feel bad for you, you point something out. The mini laptop they've had on their hand has morphed into a folded playing card. But, not just any folded playing card. It now is their signed card.
This is an ending no one will ever see coming, and you can leave the card with your spectator as a keepsake.
Roddy McGhie and Noel Qualter have created something very special. "MiniBook Pro".
