The classic traveling hole plot gets a major boost with "Reverse Matrix" by Chiam Yu Sheng.
A playing card is selected and signed. You then punch a hole in each corner. Impossibly, you're able to visually slide two of the holes right through the middle to the other end. All four holes now sit in on a row on one end.
Give the card a quick shake and the holes magically move back to their corners again. This is just one of the many sequences possible with this fantastic gimmick card.
It's hard to put "Reverse Matrix" into words. Check it out in action in the trailer above and you'll see what we mean. Despite how impossible it looks, it's very easy to do.
"Reverse Matrix" is available in red or blue and comes ready to go. The online video instructions tell you everything you need. You just have to provide your own hole puncher and you're good to go.
Customer reviews for Reverse Matrix
An interesting idea, but not really practical. Not what I would ever use in a close-up set. The method is too visible in a close-up situation and the effect is not visible enough anyplace else.
