Aaro has created a unique peek wallet that you can make yourself starting from a pretty standard leather wallet. Aaro's solution is new and in particular different to well known wallets including the Outlaw-effects Magnum 3M Filter Peek Wallet, Cornelius Thought Transmitter and Stealth Assassin Wallet.
The ebook describes in words and photos how to gimmick your wallet. It also explains handling and in particular how to peek. It does not include any routines. We assume you know what to do with this kind of gimmick. The basic effect that is possible with it is as follows:
Any information can be written on a business card and the card is placed inside wallet. Without re-opening the wallet the magician instantly knows the information written on the business card.

I have an addiction to tricked-out wallets because I am fascinated by the ingenuity that goes into the various features. (I have a drawer filled with them.) The most fundamental thing that a wallet can do is give you a peek. There are several different ways to do that, but generally you either get the peek by placing the billet into the wallet and opening it a second time (making sure that you have a good justification to do so) like the Stealth Assassin or Infinity wallets, or you glimpse it immediately after closing it, as in the many iterations of Mark Strivings SUC. For a small amount of money, you can build your own no-reopen peek wallet. The plans here cost a fiver--and you will have to look around for a particular style of wallet and one other special item--but this is a great DIY wallet, one that you can use for mentalism and carry around as your everyday wallet. (If you are familiar with Acidus Novus, then you'll immediately recognize how it works.)
If you like easy DIY projects and want the pride of making your own cool peek wallet for about $20 total, this one's for you. For further research, Pablo Amira's Free Wallet works on a different principle--and the ebook is a bit more expensive--but you also get your own DIY peek wallet. And if you can find the long out-of-print Mind2Mind DVD by Marc Paul, he shows you how to make a peek wallet using the Diagonal Peek Wallet principle for absolutely nothing but your existing wallet and one item that you'll already have. I recommend these in addition to the cheap, but highly useful, Diagonal Peek Wallet.
