In the course of a routine, during a close up performance, you get the spectator to focus on the name of someone close to them. They name a few random letters, including letters from the name. The name is not written down anywhere and exists only in their mind. And you instantly tell them the name they are thinking of.
This is exactly what you DO. There are no billets, tears or peeks. Simply the words you use and the illusion they create, are all you need to be able to accurately guess a name, most of the time. Like real mind reading, you may at times miss. Under impossible circumstances the vast majority of the time you will be correct.
Never before has this been possible, with such a stream-lined method. The process takes no time at all and is literally over in a few seconds.
This is a must have for close up workers who desire to perform realistic mind reading as completely prop-less, as possible.
Fraser says that OIJA is a dream come true and a real breakthrough for him and his work, in terms of practical methods to guess any name (or potentially any word). Once you have OUIJA in your mind, you need literally nothing else. Another person's mind and words are all that are used. It can even be performed over Skype.
