Revolve Revolve Revolve Revolve Revolve Revolve

Almost 5 years ago, Nicholas Lawrence introduced his visual morphing concept, Evolve, to the world. Over the years, many have attempted to replicate this effect but they've all fallen short.

Since then, Nicholas has been hard at work all this time and now, after years of development, Abstract Effects is excited to present: Revolve by Nicholas Lawrence! And this time, it comes hand made by Nicholas Lawrence himself and is ready to perform right out of the box!

Revolve is a utility device that includes visually stunning effects! This project includes: Changes, Transpositions and even Vanishes of a folded card. Hyper visual effects like never before! The card morphs from one color to another in an instant and can be done in numerous ways - you can even let the magic happen in the spectator's hand! With any of the numerous effects included, the card can be unfolded and handed out for examination and even given away as a souvenir of this magical moment.

And did we mention it comes FULLY built and completely ready to go out of the box?

  • No elastic or delicate materials

  • Fully examinable

  • Multiple routines & ideas included, with bonus ideas from Calen Morelli

  • Gimmick can be set and left in view until ready to perform

  • Gimmick redesigned and built with durable materials to ensure thousands of performances


Customer reviews for Revolve



Revolve is an effect that looks incredible even if you know the secret. The cool part is that the effect itself is practically self-working. The hardest part of the effect is cleaning up your mess. The video discusses several ways of working with Revolve making it optional for how the change is done.



I absolutely love this product! If the rating list had anything above 'Excellent', I would definitely have gone for that!
I never owned the original 'Evolve', but as the instructions mention, it did require a little DIY before you could use it. 'Revolve' doesn't. It is ready to use straight out of the box, though only as a card effect. Should you want to use it with bills or other such items, you would have to make your own gimmick for that. Fortunately, the instructions also teach you how to do that! That is not often the case with premade gimmicks and in my opinion, it really adds to the 'value for money' feature of this product.
As for the effect itself, it is extremely easy to perform and very visual. I could spend hours in front of the mirror just doing it over and over, grinning like a schoolkid all the while!
'Revolve' can of course be used on its own or as part of a quick transposition effect, but I definitely am going to integrate this into the color changing deck routine I'm working on. In any case, I can't wait to see my audience reactions to this one.
Enough said. 'Revolve' and the mirror are calling to me and I cannot resist...



One of the easiest most visual tricks you can perform! Highly recommend buying! You won't regret it! The angles are amazing. The gimmick is well built. This is good for walk around street magic. It's also just easy to keep in your pocket for an impromptu trick! I don't have any bad things to say about this.



Great Trick. Instructions are great as well. Only suggestion would be to improve the volume. It was low and not crisp.



This is really great eye candy, and quite easy. Clean up is natural. Gimmick seems durable. I think this is a great effect and worth the cost for sure. My only big down side is the trailer shows a clear switch at the end and I'm not sure how this is supposed to be accomplished. (It isn't part of provided gimmick and I'm not sure given the instructions on making one how you could do it clear like that) SO.. great visual, quite easy, easy reset, but don't expect to do / get info on the clear switch.



I was looking for something that is very visual and this really is. You get what you see and its really easy to learn and perform. I would say that for the price think good what you want to do with it. I am just an amateur performing for friends and family and then it's pretty expensive trick, because it is not something you will perform a lot. If you can make it part of your whole routine, I say it's well worht the price.



Pretty good trick but it was exactly what I thought it was.



WARNING there are just certain creators that can make things look like a million bucks. We fall in love with demo videos all the time. Only to be disappointed with the gimmick or the method or both. Think long and hard about how you wanna incorporate this before you purchase it.



The trick is nice but the video instructions were poorly thought out. There are multiple times throughout the video where they reference small details on the cards such as discrepancies and alignment and although it’s important enough to mention, they never cut to a closeup so you can actually see what they’re talking about. This is especially true of the “make your own” section which feels like it was filmed from the hallway looking in to the room because it’s so far away. I know not every creator of magic is equally good at teaching magic but all it takes is watching some Jay Sankey or Gregory Wilson and your can get a good handle on what’s needed. Also, the people who publish this magic should know better even if the creators don’t.



the trick is fine. I marked it down for the video instruction. like all such beasts, learning a two-handed trick leaves no hands to pause/backspace/play the vid. that's worse than a book that won't lie flat. and really, except for actual performance, what good is an audience view? over-the-shoulder, please.

  • Miroslav asks: I suppose that the card can't be freely chosen, can be?

    • 1. Steven answers: Yes. It is a free selection.

  • Fredrik asks: Is the gimmick locked so you can only perform the card switch, the bill, or the clear one? Or can you perform all three straight out of the box?

    • 1. Florian answers: You can do a card color change only, but you can use the same method for bill

  • Jeffrey S asks: In the trailer the transposition appears flawless and so clean but he obviously has this mastered. The question - how difficult are the moves to do this? Can a beginner manage it? Advanced beginner? More experience needed?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Difficulty is so subjective it's really impossible to answer that. We wrote a blog post that, you can find here:
    • 2. Doug answers: Please read my comment to the referenced blog post. Thanks.
    • 3. Daryl answers: A non-magician can actuate the change. There are harder things that you will learn, but the basics are so easy - Calen has a section talking about how to have a spectator perform it and the psychology behind the power of that idea.
  • Paul asks: Respectfully gentlemen, I think revealing SOMETHING about difficulty level is only fair to your customers. We all know that performing a Scotch and Soda is a whole lot easier than learning a Muscle Pass with a coin. If this item will take someone 5-25 hours to learn I'd consider buying it. If it's going to take 100-500 hours I'm probably not a buyer... just my 2 cents... (can anyone do a muscle pass with a penny?? ;-) )

    • 1. Florian answers: This is pretty easy to do and you only need a few hours of practice. I practice muscle pass for years and I'm not able to do that now :D

  • Paul asks: Moving on... how are the angles?? Thanks for the help!

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Very good—just don't have anyone looking over your shoulder.
  • Bob asks: Back to Jeff and Paul’s question, how many hours do you expect would need to be dedicated to learn this effect?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Hours are subjective, as everyone learns at a different pace. On a scale of one (self-working) to ten (incredibly hard), I would put this at a three or four. Put in a couple of hours of practice and you should be fine.
  • Conway asks: The answer to the difficulty question is dissapointing and the ususl helpfulness I’ve always found at Vanishing Inc. Come on guys: is this effect at a (1) beginner, (2) intermediate or (3) advanced level? Not hard to say and we all have a pretty good idea of what that means. Thanks!

    • 1. Nurul answers: I don't understand why people can't grasp the answers that have been given. People make a habit of asking the same question that's been asked. The answers are pretty clear - couple hours practice, it's not that hard to execute, angles are good.
    • 2. Conway answers: That should have read ‘and NOT the usual helpfulness’.

  • Rod asks: I purchased Evolve a few years back. I have made several of these, and is my go to trick as an opener or just a quicky. I love this effect. Question is :is Revolve just Evolve that you now include the gimmick? Or is it different in some way?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: The gimmick is made to last—in my opinion, it is much more durable now.
  • Edward asks: Does Nicholas cover DIY instructions on repair of/making a spare gimmick?

    • 1. Daryl answers: He goes in depth on that
    Post an answer to this question
  • Shayne asks: Can this be used for a money to money change? Example: a 1 to a 20.

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Yes, but you will have to make it up wit your own bills.
  • Raymond asks: How quick/easy is the reset? Can that be done walking to the next table?

    • 1. Ethan answers: Very quick! You just have to know what to do and you can do it in 1-2 seconds!

  • Juan asks: I'm wondering if this is the same method of Revolve 2.0 posted by Nicholas lawrence in a homemade video, is it?

    • 1. SGKYDUYEN answers: It's the same method

  • Juan asks: I'm wondering if this is the same method of Revolve 2.0 posted by Nicholas lawrence in a homemade video, is it?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: For this kind of question we suggest emailing
  • Rogier asks: Can it be reset during a performance?

    • 1. Aaron answers: I don’t want to say completely no, but I think it’ll take some serious work. Having said that, the instruction video goes over construction on how to make it so I would just make a bunch and have them preset as opposed to resetting.

  • Michael asks: Can you go from a card to a dollar or does it only go one way?

    • 1. SGKYDUYEN answers: It can't go from card to a dollar bill unless you create your own version
    Post an answer to this question
  • Martin asks: Any thoughts re changing it to a clear/see through card?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: You can't do that
  • Royce asks: Ok to get even more technical. would you expect MOST beginners could do this in a relatively short amount of time?

    • 1. SGKYDUYEN answers: It's easy and most of beginners can do it after knowing the secret
    Post an answer to this question
  • Peter asks: Looks great. The trailer appeared to always show a bent card. Question; can the effect be done with a straight card? And can a card be selected from the deck (so not bent) and the colour change enacted, a. without switching the card, or, b. Having to bend it?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: It is designed to be performed with a folded card.
  • Gene asks: How does revolve evolve???
