Psychoportation by Devin Knight

Effect: Teleport a borrowed driver's license under near impossible conditions.

Two manila envelopes are shown. Each is just large enough to hold a driver's license. Any spectator comes forward. No stooge or pre-show work. He hands you his driver's license which is placed inside one of the manila envelopes. The performer marks a large 1 on the front of the envelope. This envelope is then placed inside a larger window envelope where it is seen through the clear window. The window envelope is then clipped closed with a paper clip and finally placed inside a clear plastic bag and given to the participant to hold.

The second manila envelope is then marked with the number 2 and shown to be empty. It really is and is not gimmicked in any way. The performer then places this empty envelope inside another window envelope where it remains in full view through the clear window. The envelope is clipped closed with a paper clip and propped up on a table so the audience always sees it.

Now hear this. The performer causes the driver's license to vanish from the envelope being held by the participant. The participant opens the envelope marked 1 and it is empty. He can examine it as it is not gimmicked. His license has vanished.

The performer calls attention to the envelope marked 2 that is inside the window envelope that has been in full view. The envelope that is marked 2 is given to the participant. When he opens it, he finds his driver's license inside. He may examine the manila envelope as it too is not gimmicked. Baffling beyond words.

Requires NO SKILL. There is no palming and everything is done in a slow and smooth manner. No extra gimmicks, nothing used but the envelopes. The method will amaze you, so clever, yet so easy. Complete directions on how to make the envelopes and detailed direction in the usual Devin Knight style.

REVIEWS

"Unbelievable! This as Devin says, 'Can be a show stopper.' The amount of work to make this happen - VERY LITTLE! That's what makes this so so nice. Not only is the magic that happens, almost as real as magic can get, but it is so so easy to accomplish. If you never bought anything from Devin - I suggest you start with this one - YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!" - Bob Kowalkowski

"I loved Psychoportation -- such an elegant and clever secret, and the routine is so tightly constructed...as with pretty much all the items you release. You improve everything you touch. Your documentation is a model of completeness and thoughtfulness. You never disappoint me." - Josh Mandel

"'Psychoportation' is Devin Knight at his best, an effect that is as astonishing as it is easy and, because of a carefully tuned presentation, knocks spectators' mental functions into the next state. Put another way, and more succinctly: you want this one." - Shane, Online Visions

Ben Harris's solid gold easy action is probably the forerunner to impossible location. This has elements of Steve Shufton's emergency cash but more like Paul Harris's window of opportunity using multiple envelopes. Not automatic but relatively easy. Devin spent years on blind spot so he knows the number idea on the envelopes will not draw attention and will fly by everyone. Nobody even magicians will catch it. Not endorsing spending more than I can - this could easily be $25. This can go well with Phoenix rising and Dan Garrett's plastic cash. Even Grant's million dollar mystery. Highly recommended.
