Robert Smith and Paper Crane Magic proudly present Psypher. Psypher is the highly acclaimed product, Universal Impression, but bigger, better and stronger. Imagine knowing what anyone is thinking at anytime. ANY word, picture, card, or thought is written by a spectator and you know what it is, without ever coming near them!
Here's what you get:
More options, a larger gimmick for you to work with. (Twice as much as the original UI)
Custom made to work 20% better than the original.
A business card wallet
Most peek wallets cost twice the amount of this entire package alone. You're getting one free... and guess what? This blows any peek wallet out of the water! Why? Because you never touch the business card after they write on it.
Psypher is extremely easy to use but throw in some basic card technique and routining from B. Smith and your levels of deception and impact just went up a few notches. Of course if you want to sit back and let the gimmick do all the work go right ahead, that’s what it’s here for! Here are some of the routines taught on the DVD:
E-Z - This effect is one of the most pure mentalism effects conceivable with a deck of cards. Your spectator is asked to think of ANY card in the deck, write it down on a piece of paper, and put that piece of paper in their pocket. All of which is done while your back is turned; you can even be in another room! When you return, you remove the cards from the box and place one face down card on the table. Ask the spectator to name the card they are merely thinking of... the spectator turns the card over and it is the thought of card!! Card magic doesn’t get any more powerful!
Time zone- Imagine a spectator thinks of a time, a second spectator removes 3 cards from the deck, when the thought of time is named the second spectator reveals her cards... you guessed it, the value of the cards match the thought of time!
Name and Card Routine - This is B. Smiths killer card routine with multiple, impossible climaxes! Imagine not only being able to know the card someone is thinking of, but also know when they THINK 'stop' while dealing through the deck. Not only do you tell them when they thought stop, you now tell them what card they are thinking of. Not only do you tell them what card they are thinking of, you have them turn over the card they mentally stopped at and it is the thought of card! Not only do you do all that, you now have them think of a person that is important in their life and without any words you reveal the name of that person! This exciting and powerful 4-5 minute routine lacks no down time and is worth way more than the price of this kit. In fact, this is what B. Smith would close his shows with all over the world. (When he's not crying tears of blood)
Business Card Wallet - You can do anything you want with this, all while handing out your business cards! This is invaluable for the working magician. Imagine impressing a potential client by having them think of anything (name, word, picture, ANYTHING!) and having them write it on your business card and put it in their pocket all while you are turned away. Now imagine the astonishment when you reveal that thought! You've just given them a story to tell for the rest of their lives, along with proof for them to keep and show others, which happens to be YOUR business card with YOUR contact information on it. Psypher pays for itself!
Plus - Three additional routines, psychology, performance tips, peeks and more!!
Let's face it, this isn’t just a DVD or just a Gimmick, this is an entire MENTALISM KIT with endless possibilities. Why pay close to 0 for one peek wallet that’s less impressive when you can have a business card wallet, gimmicked card box, or an impression pad, along with a DVD full of ideas and routines all of this for only .95!!
What You Get
One 3" x 5" Psypher Gimmick plus a little sumthin' extra ;)
Have a question about this product?
While the physical contents themselves are GREAT, the video advertises "better gimmicks, more
gimmicks". There may be more gimmick material than what was provided for the first release, but
it's still not very much material at all, so I would be prepared to buy more later.
The ad video
shows how strong the effect is for writing on a notepad, which sold me immediately, but the DVD only
spends 2% of the time talking about this and it doesn't provide any routines. If you're creative
and know your way around mentalism effects already, this shouldn't be a problem. If you plan on
using it with a deck of cards, it's a good buy since the DVD spends 80% discussing card routines.
The wallet/business card effects on the DVD, however, are weak and very poorly performed in my

This is a must have for any magician. I love mentalism and this trick blew my mind. After watching
the DVD once through, I was able to perform this flawlessly. You get enough material to do more
than one routine as well. Robert Smith is great at explaining how everything works, he even gets
into a little psychology. The possibilities in Psypher are endless.

As these devices go, this is okay.
It's not worth the money, especially when a tear or peek
costs nothing but the time it takes to practice, and you can't lose the skill. You can lose this
pad, and the marker will run out. You'll need to buy replacements.
Therefore, having lost
my pad, and shelled out $50 for this, it was worth when I had it, about $10. A neat way to discern
written info. It is now worthless.
However, my R2D2 or Obsidian/Oblique are priceless and
I will never lose them.
The DVD it comes with is not helpful.
He doesn't show you the
potential of this sort of device.
If you have a device or skill that will gain you admittance
into the innermost thoughts of a fellow human being, why would you tell them to think of a card?
It's even worse than that. He then tells them to write it down. That's already two compromises.
He might as well have them select a card, use it to find a page in a book, then choose the first
word on that page, and write down that word, then put it in his wallet.
If you want to
tell a spec what card they're thinking, then force a card on them and tell them what they are
thinking. I've done this many times and they are always more blown away than Robert Smith's
spectators who had to write it down.
Better yet, why use cards in the first place? When I
have specs think of a card, it's because I can convincingly force a card on them better than forcing
any thought or memory. Robert Smith, instead of asking a girl to think of the first boy she fell in
love with, or the name of a pet she grew up with, or something compelling and virtually infinite, he
restricts her choice to 52 objects that have a strong association with trickery and sleight of hand.
Instead of her telling her friends later, "He knew who I fell in love with in middle school!" or
"He knew the name of my cocker spaniel from when I was a little girl!" and her friends will reply,
"Oh my god! I can't believe you met someone like that!" Instead she will tell her friends, "He did
this clever card trick. You should see it. It was really neat. He knew what card I picked." Her
friends will say, "Oh, cool. I had an uncle who did card tricks..."
In short, Robert Smith
should stop performing on the street and start selling pencils from a cup.

I bought this product and was a little skeptical that I would be able to pull it off because I don't
have much experience with mentalism. The Gimmick that comes with the set is awesome and works very
well! I was literally able to find my spectators chosen card after they had written it on paper,
folded it up, and put it in their pocket within 10 minutes of watching the DVD. Although with more
practice I'll be able to pull off the other awesome routines on the DVD with ease (the DVD is 90

This trick is great. I totally recommend it for a mentalist or a card magician. Most the tricks that
they teach use cards. I love it and it is sooo clever and amazing. Any magician that wants to step
up there magic up a level needs to get it. The only reason it is 4 stars is because you don't get a
lot of the gimmick for what you pay. You don't need refills it is just what ways you want to use the
gimmick. You can buy more gimmick but it is expensive. Don't let this turn you away from getting it.

There are several different ways that Psypher can be used in any type of magic (street, stage,
etc..). I will use it as the starter to my "card tricks". This was very easy to learn and the set
up is quick. My wife and kids, who get to see a lot of magic, really liked Psypher.

This is by far my favorite purchase from penguin. It is a gimmick I will really use in
performances. The spectator has no idea how you can possible know what they are thinking of.
Good tutorial, but should have explained notepad implementation a bit more.
they should have supplied at least 2 impression devices as you will be cutting them up for different

Much stronger that the first and alot more disguised in the notebook set up. i have had UI since it
first came out. if u like 1, 2.0 is definately worth the money

Why haven't you bought this yet. It's the ONE!
WHY ONLY 4 STARS? This is NOT a full on
mentalism toolkit in a box. It's a Samurai Sword, but Robert only shows you how to slice bread with
it. I think Robert knows this, But he may have been holding back on the DVD...
have to think for yourself, and put in the work to create the illusion of mind reading with this
STILL 4 stars. The quality of the product will delight you, and technology behind
the secret is beautiful.
For $40, Easy choice. GET IT!
