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.


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.



Most visual trick I have ever seen. This came in the mail today and I’m beyond astonished with how easy and practical the gimmick is to use with very minimal sleight of hand. It’s actually easier to do than I thought it was going to be. The fact that a gimmick like this has 2 phases for something so visual from a 2d visual effect and then a 3D visual is unprecedented. I knew how the first phase worked when I saw it but the second phase ended up fooling me badly now that I know how it’s done. ?? Amazing job vanishing inc. Keep up the A+ work!!



This trick was a great concept, however, the stupid thing broke on me within a minute of playing with it. I watched the entire 5 minute tutorial and it broke. It wasn’t even the thread that broke on me. It was another part of the gimmick. So disappointed.



Ordered this. It was shipped in a padded envelope and arrived utterly crushed. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see/understand this should be shipped in a box.

The prop is crushed and useless. After chatting with someone at Vanishing Inc. I was told that it would be replaced ASAP. It hasn't. I feel like I've been robbed.

Purchase your magic from somewhere else.



First, I ll say Vanishing service is top notch! The first one I got wasn't well made and it broke immediatley and they sent me a new one! Kuddo to Vaniishing inc! The second one was better but still you'll never use it this product in front of real people , it's only in front of you camera but not too many time or will be break the gimmick, so fragile ... I think it's the worse product of 2021! And far too expensive for what you get and where you can use it!



This is something completely new, not fitting into regular magic tricks genre, like a levitation, disappearance etc. It is astonishing enough when the first boat appears, but shocking when the second suddenly sits there and can be shown separately from the card! It is a little bit delicate, but many good tricks are, so just be careful and you will have fun doing this. There are instructions how to fix it if it breaks, but I hope to never need this. I will warn you though, to make sure that when doing the 2d reveal, you practice carefully not to allow it to get stuck, which depends on how you "bow" the card.

  • 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.
  • Joshua asks: Can you reveal both the 2D & 3D boat slowly (slower than shown)? This will determine whether it works for me or not.

    • 1. Arnulf answers: No. The reveal is intended to be performed as shown.
    • 2. Avrohom answers: The 2d can be slower, but not the 3d.
