A card is selected and remembered. A lighter is borrowed. Introduce your phone, your digital camera, your FLIP HD, or your camcorder. Have the spectator document what is about to happen. So what happens? Imagine being able to light a borrowed lighter, and cause the FLAME itself to form the shape of their chosen card! Imagination? NO. THIS IS ILLUMINATE.

Illuminate takes card revelations to a whole new level, as the image of their card forms within the flame of the lighter you just borrowed. Want to document the image? Have the spectator snap a picture! Then offer to send it to them so they have something to have with them always! Illuminate is visual, practical, fun and easy to do!

If it wasn't in the Cool Box...... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 8th, 2013
This was a Cool Box purchase. As such, I have capped the "poison pen". It does do what it says it will, but has very limited functionally relating to the devices it will work with. For example, my phone is not one of those it works with- nor are either of my two cameras.~Smeg. Should say that in the ad. Tisk tisk. It can also be tricky to implement the method on the fly,as folks are protective of their phone. and I don't see it working on a borrowed unit with a tough audience.

With that said, I borrowed a friends phone and it is a Great Bar trick, and should work nicely around Valentines day. For a casual gathering, "this is SO cute!" type of thing, its $$$ well spent. Had I paid full price I would have been ticked.

Cool Effect Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 4th, 2013
I like this effect a lot. It's cool and I've gotten great reactions from spectators. My only problem is that I've had a little trouble in the daytime. It still works, but it doesn't look as good

Cool trick, but.. Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 31st, 2015
The trick is very cool and will leave your audience stunned, but.. It doesn't work with every device, you can't use a borrowed phone or camera, works with the same forced card only.

Cool Trick from the Cool Box! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 14th, 2014
This is a great trick for valentines day and it looks amazing in camera! Not all phones will work but most people have IPhones and that will work! But it is a bit overpriced! I would pay up to $15 dollars for this not really anymore. Luckily I payed the Coolbox Blizzard price of $5! When it came in the mail, no gimmicks came! It's great that Penguin Magic is awesome and supplied me with so for free! In the end I recommend it for the Coolbox price!

ONE FLAW Report this review

illuminate was actually really foolproof, though you do need your own smartphone. it works out well unless your a kid buying this and you don't have a smartphone of somekind.

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 20th, 2014
i love the effects! love the premise of using fire to create the playing card image. & the alternate version is sooo darn cool!!! i just hoping that next time i get the bigger size gimmick for this. "got a new idea of using this gimmick" but i really hope that i get bigger size :) anyway, penguinmagic rocks!!!

Almost decent Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 19th, 2014
This trick is not what it looks like in the video it is way more blurry.
If it weren't for being in the coolbox I would have been pissed not worth the 25 dollars for this effect. Interesting concept though.
