ESP

ESP or extrasensory perception means transmitting or discovering information without the means of the human senses. These effects, tricks, and routines are often done with the help of so called ESP cards, or Zener cards (circle, square, wavy lines, cross, and star), introduced by Prof. Rhine at Duke University to conduct his famous experiments.

ESPlosion Telempathy by Ken Muller

Take your ESP card effects to a new dimension. This is a complete, multi-phase telempathy routine, that progresses from a simple match card effect to a magazine test, then a book test, then a more profound reveal of complex and detailed information - above and beyond expectations and traditional telepathy routines.

There is a bonus ESP card effect that will leave the audience speechless.

The 'explosion' is the belief in mind-to-mind communication.

This uses 'Once Removed' techniques and requires an ESP deck and book test familiarity.

David Devlin
Flipper by David Devlin

Here is the effect: a spectator has a packet of 5 cards. For argument's sake, let's assume the five cards used are simply numbered 1-5 (the actual make up of the cards is up to your imagination). The spectator goes through a procedure in which cards are turned face up, face down, left as they are, the packet is cut, some-times the spectator decides whether the cards are turned over or not, sometimes the performer decides. But in the end, no matter who made the decisions, or which decisions were made, only the center card is face up and it is the 4. Not only that, but no matter what decisions...

Here is a straight forward effect which is enabled by a clever gimmick. You ask somebody to think of any one of the five ESP symbols.

Jim Sisti
Mixed Symbols by Jim Sisti

The performer hands five ESP cards, each bearing a different symbol, to a spectator and requests that he remember one. The spectator is then asked to shuffle the cards. The magician takes the cards back and, after an apparently fair mixing procedure, correctly divines the selected symbol without even looking at the faces.

The method uses an old mathematical ploy but it is dressed up differently here.

This effect was featured in the May 2005 issue of Magic Magazine.

Consumer Control by David Britland

Five ESP cards are laid out on the table. Point to one and push it aside. Point to another and push it aside. Discard two more until just one is left. Do you think I could have predicted that card in advance?

A duplicate set of ESP cards has been on view throughout. They are all face down except one. It's your card. Not only that, but it has a completely different colored back from the rest!

Consumer Control is simple, easy and direct. No counts, moves or sleight of hand. A baffling demonstration of psychological persuasion.

[Note: This ebook does not come with the specially prepared cards. One set of ESP cards is regular. The other set is prepared with rough and smooth but in a very special way. If you have a roughing spray or stick you will be able to make your own cards. You will need ESP cards with two different backs. You will also need two double backers that match the two different backs and two envelopes.]
