Once believed to be impossible, a true miracle-level effect is now possible thanks to “The Bat System” by Wings Magic.

“The Bat System” introduces the world of mentalism and card magic to a powerful principle that offers incredible potential. Just like bats use echo waves to hunt in the dark, “The Bat System” utilizies UHD radio waves to secretly get information to you.

Using a specially-made monitor and RFID reader, “The Bat System” can tell you exactly what playing card a spectator is holding. The reader can be discreetly placed up to 3 meters away and you don’t even need to be in the same room to get the transmission as the monitor works up to an unprecedented 15 meters away.

“The Bat System” is covert, fast and precise. As soon as they select the card, you know exactly what it is. Several intelligent working modes are included to provide different performance capabilities, including a remarkable Gambler’s mode that allows you to know every single card in a player’s hand at a glance.

As a special bonus, you’ll also receive 5 RFID casino chips, 5 RFID ESP cards and 5 blank RFID tags that can also be used with “The Bat System”. Attach them to anything you want for ultimate flexibility with “The Bat System” outside of the world of card tricks.

”The Bat System” System Comes With

  • Special RFID reader
  • Monitor
  • Custom-made RFID Playing Cards (Bicycle Maiden BAck)
  • 5 RFID ESP cards
  • 5 RFID casino chips
  • 5 blank RFID tags

The Bat System FAQ

Does “The Bat System” work with ordinary playing cards?
No. You must use the included deck of cards as it has been specially-designed with it’s own RFID system. Each deck has a different code and reader combo. So you won’t ever have to worry about any interference, even if you own two RFID decks.

Does the spectator need to place their card in a certain place?
The large range of the reader is incredibly accurate within about a 2 meter range. They won’t have to do anything special with the card. However, above ~2 meters, and up to the max range ~3 meters, it is possible that the reader has to be pointed toward the cards for the best accuracy and quickest results.

Does the sensing range vary within the different objects?
Yes, the max 3-meter sensing range for the reader applies to the playing card and ESP cards only. Since the RFID chips in the poker chips and blank tags are smaller, the sensing range is roughly 10 centimers.

How long does the battery last?
“The Bat System” has a great battery life of up to 3 hours for the monitor and nearly 2 hours for the reader. So you can set it up long before your show begins. There is also a battery percentage indicator on the monitor for both itself and the reader, so you’ll always be able to perform with confidence.


Customer reviews for The Bat System



So yes, obviously this is expensive. Not really I need to debate the price – if you have a use for this dash it does what it says it will do, and very well. The multicard reading function is amazing. You can have your spectator pick out a whole poker hand out I’d the deck, and you will know what they hold. The “only “caveat I have is, I think it’s important to know that the cards supplied are not real cards. They are manufactured to look like a bicycle made in deck, and likely, most spectators wouldn’t know the difference. But they are slightly thicker than normal cards (maybe 10 cards thicker on a full deck) And have a very different feel to them. Again, likely a layperson wouldn’t suspect they are not normal cards, but a magician can tell just by looking at them. If they were able to put this technology into a normal deck of cards, I would easily pay three times the amount



The other reviews here go into the details- All I can say is that this works as it was made to work. I used the deck of cards and had a person shuffle the cards who was very used to handling cards and all this person said was 'a brand new deck!'- he was none the wiser even after handling the deck. Yes this is not inexpensive. But the possibilities are endless with this system- and really really ease of use. No slight of hand used. No lengthy tutorial but none needed- If you are a professional magician you should easily be able to develop your own routine with this system. This system makes YOUR routine easy- you can focus on your acting skills and creativity without having to over focus and be distracted with hidden maneuvers or restricted angles- no helper needed easily used as a single entertainer. If you are serious about growing your performance art this is a great addition and worth the price.



The built-in technology works flawlessly. I tested with the receiver 15 feet from the transmitter, it read the cards almost immediately.

You can even deal several cards at a time onto a table and each will be presented on the screen of the receiver. It even has a gambler’s mode where up to five hands of five will be displayed remotely.

Included in the kit are RFID poker chips and ESP cards. In addition, extra RFID chips, that could be hidden in any object are enclosed. The possibilities are unlimited.

The transmitter easily fits into a regular tuck box. They do supply a card box that has an opening in the rear for peeking the receiver if needed. The reliever can be magnetically attached to the transmitter. The combined unit then fits perfectly inside with the window of the receiver exposed.

The RFID cards are a bit thicker and heavier than a normal deck. They come in a box modified to accommodate the extra thickness of the cards.

The product itself is wonderful. So far, in my experience, it works as advertised.

I’m deducting one star because the tutorial is only around 20 minutes long. No live performance videos or suggested applications were included. This is close to a $1000 product! The tutorial barely touched on the bare essentials. Is this a trend in expensive electronic devices? I recently purchased the Pitata White board, another costly item. Again the tutorial was very skimpy.

  • George asks: Is there a reader and a monitor? The monitor looks very large.

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Yes, their is a special reader that can be discreetly hidden within a range of up to 2-3 meters. The monitor can then be used up to 15 meters away.
  • Will asks: How can replacement or additional cards be acquired?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: You are provided with a link to get replacements or additional cards.
  • Roland asks: Is there a guarantee on the bat?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: There is a 1 year warranty
  • Richard asks: I don't understand how the reader is used. Do you hide it somewhere close to the spectator? Does it have to be directly exposed to the spectator without anything between the reader and the spectator?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: You can palm it, secret it in another item, have it stuck to the edge of a table etc. It can be up to 3m away from the cards.
  • Stephen asks: The monitor bothers me. Why can’t the information be sent to my Apple Watch

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: We're unable to answer that question, but suspect it is "easier" to work with a proprietary reader rather than work with Apple and have to follow their strict rules for what is (and isn't) allowed.
  • Steve asks: So this would be perfect for a tossed-deck type effect where 5 spectators come onto stage and pick a card then return to the audience with their cards?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: That's a great idea! It would be very fair.
  • Winston asks: Is there anything "fishy" about the cards? Are they regular Bicycle playing cards of are thy made of plastic?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: The cards are a little thicker than a normal deck.
  • Jobeth asks: Is there smart phone/watch integration currently or in the works?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: We are not sure if Wings Magic are working on that. We hope so because that is a cool idea!
  • Alberto asks: Is this unit compatible with Insight PRO cards? If not now, might it be in the near future?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: It is specifically programmed to the Bat System unfortunately.
  • Craig asks: Does this have Bluetooth connection?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: It uses RFID.
  • Mike asks: Why do demos play music so loud it sounds like in a night club Even on Tutorials it doesn’t make any sense

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: We're not in control of the mixing on any trailers we don't produce ourselves I'm afraid.
  • Eric asks: What are the dimensions or the reader?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: 2 ½ x 5/8 x 5/8”
  • Doug asks: My question is similar to Winston's: how do the cards compare in thickness, weight, and feel to a normal Bicycle deck?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: The deck will feel about 2-3 cards thicker.
  • Gerry asks: Are the cards thicker than regular cards in order to hide the chips within them? Are they noticibly different than regular cards to a spectator if they are shuffling?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: They are a little thicker because of the chips inside of them. You'll probably want to keep them from riffle shuffling the cards. A spectator would not know the difference in feel of cards because they do not handle cards as much as a magician.
  • James asks: Does the bat system scan the deck and indicate the missing card or scan for the removed card. For example if the spectator removes a card but the card is still within a meter of the deck would the system report this. Many thanks Jim

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: It scans for the removed card.
  • Paul asks: My question is similar to James's: If the Reader is within scanning distance of both the deck and the card removed, how does it know which card has been removed? Doesn't the Scanner have to be away from (outside the range of) the Reader and closer to (within range of) the the selected card?

    • 1. Derek answers: Yes. But there are varying levels of intensity for the scanner Dash you can set it higher or lower depending on where the scanner is relative to the deck.

  • Lieven asks: Is the signal only visual or is there also a sensory signal (vibrations?)

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Only visual
  • Steve asks: How are the reader and the display recharged?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Via USB
  • Loïc asks: How large is the reader ? Can it be hidden in a card box ?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: The reader can be hidden in a card box. It is about the size of a flash drive.
  • Jeremy asks: Is the deck of card made of plastic cards ? So it could last longer

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: They have a plastic finish but should last a little longer than a regular deck.
  • Manuel asks: Will there be deck refills available?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Unknown at this point I'm afraid.
  • Manuel asks: Can you riffle shuffle the cards without harming the deck?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: You can.
  • Robert asks: This rfid im still a little confused dose the card or chip have to pass over the reader or could i have this reader in my back pocket and the reader will sense the card or chip that is moved away from the rest? in the demo it shows the spectator slightly move a card up from the deck is there something we need to do in order to have the reader recalibrate the positioning of the cards via rather on table or in spectators hands?

    • 1. robert answers: Don’t over think this. Back pocket I wouldn’t suggest but you will be able to better understand if you buy it and you will be amazed. This is real magic. In the action of taking a card you can know what the card is, direct sight in better but in playing not always a necessity. This is a real game changer and a step up in this area of magic giving the complete novice skills you are only limited by you imagination. With skill you can recreate what this enables you to do but you put the capability into the hands of anyone with what appears a very high skill level.
    • 2. Kelsey answers: I just got mine= it works well in a front breast pocket- like a shirt pocket. I would not think it would work in a back pocket.

  • Stewart asks: What are the cards made of?

    • 1. Kelsey answers: The cards to the average person will feel like regular card- just a new feel like straight out of the box. A very durable card stock feel like an expensive deck of new cards.

  • CLOE asks: Is it possible to know how many cards are removed ? ex. A spectator removes randomly a bunch of cards, may I know how many cards he has in his hands?
