"Thought Swiper is fantastic! I wish I'd thought of this! There is no faster way to get to the thought-of card. Absolutely wonderful!" - Bob Farmer
"Patrik abhors memory work and mental arithmetic on stage. In "Thought Swiper" a fiendishly clever print gimmick strips a powerful principle older than Professor Hoffmann's Modern Magic (1876) of all its fussy calculations and memorization. The prop visually integrates all the salient technicalities, freeing the mind to sell the elegant effect." - Jan Bardi
A participant chooses a card (mentally) and keeps its identity secret. Guided by the magician's instructions, the person slides their finger on the row containing their card directly onto the Thought Swiper. As soon as this is done (almost) the magician is in a position to reveal the identity of the card. How is this possible?
Thanks to the Thought Swiper system, it is the participant himself (without knowing it) who transmits the identity of his card. The formula is simple to use and the participant does most of the work.
There is no forcing or psychological subterfuge or electronic gimmicks. The Thought Swiper uses a very simple, fast, and direct solution in order to determine a mentally chosen card. The "Think A Card" theme is finally accessible to everyone. Imagine the many possibilities!
[In order to perform this routine you will have to print out the Thought Swiper as shown in the PDF. No gimmick will be mailed to you.]
