As you stare at the card intently you will draw your middle finger across the length of the card from a few inches above - at no time do you touch the card. Slowly, at first almost imperceptibly, the card begins to bend upward.
The only way a card can bend normally is for a person to apply pressure to the edges and actually bend it, but at no time does this happen. You. Don't. Touch. The. Card.
They see it happen. It happens before their eyes as the seconds tick by. They can stare at the card until their blood runs cold and they won't know what happened.
Neat production! Little hard to do depending on your surroundings because of how you must prepare it. If 'not enough' it won't bend as visually.
This trick is absolutely insane! Worth every penny. It is true that no one could ever guess how it's done. This is probably one of the easiest and most powerful effects you can perform, found on Ellusionist. Literally anyone could do this, it's that easy. And the most impressive part is that it does not require a gimmick, which everyone is looking for during the trick. It's just beautiful. The first time I tried it (about 3 minutes after I learned the trick)I was amazed that it was so easy, and you really don't have to put alot of time in learning it. What makes this trick almost perfect is that it doesn't wear out, unlike effects with gimmicks. I can't think of anything bad to say about the MindBender.
And I recommend this to anyone who's just getting in to magic. This trick is so simple and effective that it inspires a beginner to proceed with his magic.
Really cool card trick. I love it. It just blow people's mind, it blowed my mind when I saw it. It's worth getting it.
Our bartender last night was one of those who like to think they know everything you're doing - and announces it. I know him well enough that he feels entitled to tell everyone how I do my card magic - even when he's wrong. Mindbender left him speechless, even a little bothered. I love this effect.
MindBender is so genius at the fact that there's basically science behind it and that people see it as magic so they dont think of it like that
When I saw the secret I was litteraly blown away. I've practiced this and it is awesome, it is a trick that is going to be the making of me as a magician.
My borther-in-law is one of those that loves it when he can tell everyone how I do my tricks, this is the one that left him speechless.
This trick is unbelievably amazing and the method is just as amazing. It is SO easy that if you told someone who's never touched a card in their life how to do it, they could do it in literally one second. There is a very small setup, but it is so natural and invisible that you could do it with people staring right at you. It ends TOTALLY CLEAN. If you're looking for a trick that will get you drop-dead effects from your spectators, that is incredibly easy to do, IMPOSSIBLE to figure out, and can be repeated, then ADD THIS TO YOUR CART RIGHT NOW!!!
Saw this being done at the local bar and I could not believe my eyes, at first I looked for every possible logical solution I could think off. But no matter how hard I looked I could not find anything. This is an amazing trick and in the right hands can even bend the minds of the audience it at least bent my mind cause there was no way it was possible. I walk out of there amazed and my mind bent as I tried to explain to myself how it was performed... It is definitely worth the money and personally I am going to purchase this next time I get paid for it is simply amazing.
I do like this illusion very much. Well worth the money. I specifically like to use this with the rising deck. This is an effect you will use in the right situation. Thanks Ellusionist!
I performed this trick for a friend and he could not believe his eyes. Set up time only takes seconds and your audience will never guess how it is done. I recommend this trick for everyone.
