A mind-boggling 3D effect that changes the game for what is possible in the world of visual magic.

Instant color changes. Moving pips. Jumping holes.

When it comes to visual card magic gimmicks, we thought we had seen it all. That is until we experienced the “Pop Up Project” from Guilherme Almeida and Patricio Teran.

It’s important to remind you that our entire Vanishing Inc. team is filled with professional magicians. So, it’s rare that we are truly surprised. However, the “Pop Up Project” elicited quite a few audible gasps when it was first introduced in one of our weekly meetings.

You start by showing a playing card. Then, right in front of the audience’s eyes, a cartoon boat slowly materializes on the back. In the blink of an eye, this image instantly pops off the back of the card and transforms into a 3D ship. You can physically slide this ship off the card and hold it in your hand.

“Pop Up Project” is a truly one-of-a-kind gimmick. It packs two impossible moments into a small portable package. A 2D image seamlessly blends into a 3D visual in a way unlike anything we’ve ever seen.

Each “Pop Up Project” comes ready-to-go out of the box. It can be learned in seconds. The included tutorial teaches you everything you need to know. While this is clearly a can’t-miss effect for anyone who posts magic videos on TikTok or Instagram, you’ll also be happy to know that you’ll even learn a way to swap the boat out for one that can be examined for in-person close-up magic or street magic performances.

IMPORTANT NOTE: When used correctly, the “Pop Up Project” gimmick should last a long time. However, please watch the entire tutorial before attempting to use it. Extra thread is included but should not be required for a long time if performed properly.

  • Lorenzo asks: OMG, eu nunca vi nada igual, parabéns aos criadores. O barco é frágil? Existe um risco de estragar ou quebrar caso um espectador descuidado ou com mãos suadas pegue ele?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Sí, el truco es muy frágil, pero con el cuidado adecuado, debería durar mucho tiempo.
  • Paul asks: If you choose to give the "souvenir boat" away, it's it easy to make more or are there refilla available for purchase?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: We recommend that you do not give the boat. While it is possible to DIY a new one together, it is best to not give away the boat.

Customer reviews for Pop Up Project



A touch finicky..but I do like this. While I think the price point is a touch high...who am I to say what something should cost. It takes a little time when playing around to get the actions just right but persist and it will come. What I would have liked though is a few more of both the boats in the package. I would have paid more if this was so as I can see over time something will go wrong and a wrong move will crush or destroy them. Yes I know you probably can make some ..but arts and crafts are not my strong point. Never the less a nice illusion to play around with and as the video shows it does work this way...well done guys.
