Ralf (Fairmagic) Rudolph
Card Corner in Phone by Ralf (Fairmagic) Rudolph

Effect: The performer shows a video that displays various card values. A spectator mentally selects one, then mentally tears off a corner of the selected card, and that card corner appears in the phone.

To perform this effect all you need is a phone that can play back an MP4 video. This is not an app and can therefore be performed on pretty much any modern smart phone. Please note that in most cases the card corner will appear in the video that is played back. In some cases the card corner will materialize as actual card corner.

Phones are now very personal items. Long time ago in order to perform an effect with pictures; you would have to carry the pictures with you. But now people carry pictures with them all the time. Million of pictures! Using your spectator's phone and his Instagram account the effect goes like this:

Your spectator freely selects any category of pictures. He searches for this category himself; then your spectator selects any picture he wants. This picture could have been uploaded by anybody in the whole world. Yet you read your spectator's mind and accurately find the username that uploaded that...

This only currently works only on iPhone devices.

This is not an app, it is not a pre-recorded message and the number they generate can be seen in your recent calls.

You phone the number they have created and, when the person answers the phone, you ask them to name any playing card. They name the card that was chosen by the spectator.

Computer Magic with the ZX-81 by David Hambly

The next time you download the latest and greatest magic app to your smart phone remember that it all started with this. This booklet is to the best of my knowledge the first publication on magic with a computer (published by Martin Breese in 1983). In this case the legendary Sinclair ZX-81 with the whooping memory of 1K.

The author addresses how one can use the ZX-81 during a magic performance. It includes numerous programs in the Basic programming language. The magic effects are not that great to be honest, but David Hambly was breaking new ground.

If you remember Basic with its GOTO, GOSUB and PEEK...

In 1950 mathematician and magician William Fitch Cheney Jr. published a two-person card trick. Some consider it the best mathematical card trick ever devised. The basic effect is as follows.

Five cards are randomly picked from a deck (can be a borrowed deck, an incomplete deck ... there is nothing marked or otherwise tricky with the deck) and given to the performer, who shows four of them to his performing partner. The partner sees nothing else except the four cards (no other signaling or silent codes), but promptly reveals the identity of the fifth card.

Obviously the identity of the...
