A unique concept from a wonderful idea by Dale A. Hildebrandt (with permission).
The Digital Video Deck combines a hi-tech Card At Any Number with a series of prediction, coincidence and mindreading effects culminating in a unique give-away or promotional tool.
During your performance, a personalized prediction effect culminates in the spectator revealing their card at their chosen number using their own DVD player, Computer or TV.
And what's more...this effect, whilst using a hi-tech aid, in no way uses technology. Clearly it is impossible to tamper with anything.
The package includes:
1. Instruction Video
Features over 90 minutes of impressive feats by Michael Weber, Daryl, Nick Trost, Sean Taylor and Richard Paddon.
Sean and Richard walk you step by step through each effect with multiple methods, sleights, subtleties, hints and tips depending on your level of ability in cards and mentalism. Many of these effects are nearly self-working allowing you to concentrate fully on the presentation.

Totally free choices by the spectator. Includes tips and extra handlings for PATEO by Sean Taylor.
