If you could just think of an effect and be able to do it straigth away,
what would it be?

I'd like to hear your ideas (keep them a bit possible), I know those threads are a bit annoying but I like to read them.

Maybe something like the classic trick where you do a multiple prediction, but improved. Have them think of like any number between 1 and 100 (before that you borrow a pencil and paper,) and think of a shape. You show them the paper and inside their thought of shape is their selected number. Something like that maybe.

I would want to go to a school's awards assembly, and hang a PLEXIGLASS box above the audience with your predictions inside. On the paper, which was suspended the whole time, you predict what the awards are, and who got them. Sounds great, huh? :lol: :wink:

This is somewhat already possible. There is a glass box prediction in 13 steps, but its used for a single prediction I believe, not multiple ones.

I was just giving Max a hard time. A glass box doesn't sound like it would work too well, though. Any thoughts, Max? :lol:

Control the weather.

Regards this topic please read my essay, Impossible is Nothing (which also got published on Visions, the Online Journal for Magic).

I like the glass box idea myself. I've had an effect in my head for a while now where you predict the names of three winners of a raffle you hold for the audience. 100s of tickets, 100s of spectators and you perfectly predict the name and prize of each winner.

Still working on it...

A glass box... never heard of?

Trust me bucky... the world never saw a glass box routine the same...

I have a way of doing this which is very simple and will work 100% on stage, you don't need to touch the prediction also, you can let it in an envelope and mail it if you want.

Place a fork on the table and have it bend with no one touching it.

I've been working on a method for this sucker for a while.
