I want you to imagine that we are at a coffee shop having a conversation. I ask you to move to the other side of the room and write down any 2 or 3 digit number while I look away. I tell you to hold the paper close so no one can see. After a moment of concentration I am able to tell you with 100% accuracy what number you are thinking of.

Now, imagine if I told you it was completely impromptu. A way to reveal a spectator�s thoughts without peeks, center tears, impression devices, stooges, or any sort of linguistic deception. Take every overused method and forget them�this isn�t it.

Based on a nearly lost concept, this technique was redefined and simplified by Matthew. Similar ideas have cropped up in the past by such names as Karl Fulves, Al Mann, and even Tony Corinda. But, what you�re getting here is Matthew�s easy to use streamlined version.

Using this technique, YOU NEVER SEE WHAT THE SPECTATOR WRITES DOWN. You�re about to discover a practical method for the most realistic, jaw dropping mind reading you can perform.

Other applications of the Technique principal:

  • Impromptu drawing duplication of simple shapes
  • Numerical values of thought of playing cards
  • Realistic demonstration of the standard scientific ESP test

Key points to consider

  • You never see what the spectator writes.
  • It is one of the easiest versions of it's kind.
  • The principle has multiple applications.
  • Bonus Effect included on the DVD

WOW!!!!!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 23rd, 2012
WOW is all i can say.

this trick is amazing! i showed my family and they where shocked!

level of difficulty (1 - realy easy 5 - realy hard): 2 1\2
the trick itself is very easy, but it will take a little practice. the bonus trick is about level 3 at difficulty, but it is worth learning.

effect: 9\10

the effect is amazing!
the only reason i gave i 9 and not 10, is because the trick may not work. but Matthew shows a good way to make a mistake into a great trick.

If you are a mentalist, and plan to go out and actually perform, not just sit at your house and think "now i got something impromptu if anyone ever asks me to perform"
I have tested this out at the fair, in a bar, at the mall, and Starbucks one time...

First of all the technique itself is simple, but does require practice, REAL WORLD practice, to perfect it, its not something you can sit in front of a mirror and practice, you actually have to go out and do it. but i think after 10 times you should be 95% there.

Ive seen people say they don't like it and you should get a impression pad, Don't. This is mentalism at its finest, 100% impromptu, nothing but you, the spectator, a pen, and paper.

So if you are actually going to go out there and blow people away, go ahead and get this, if not, go buy some spongeballs.

OUTSTANDING Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 24th, 2013
An outstanding TOOL in mentalism. There are SO MANY applications! The method is great, and it works 99% of the time. If the really skeptical spectator tries to ruin the trick, Matt gives you a great routine as an out. If you don't like the out provided, with a little creativity, you can definitely create your own. He also includes an AWESOME billet tear (peek not a switch) that I have actually stumped magicians with. Is this product really worth 15 dollars? ABSOLUTELY! Here is why:

1. You don't get 2 tricks on this DVD, you get 2 TOOLS that can be used in your mentalism routine. The applications are only limited to your creativity. Plus, these tools are IMPROMPTU!

2. The quality of this DVD is excellent, as are all the Paper Crane Magic DVDS. The music fits well.

3. The DVD is well organized, with bonus features, and OPTIONAL trailers.

4. You get a practice section on the extras section, and you can see Matt's performances to learn from and study.

5. The ad is EXACTLY as advertized.

In conclusion, Technique has enhanced my performances, given me CRAZY reactions, and some easy to master impromptu miracles. It took me 2 performances to master, and on a level of one to ten in difficulty, it would be a 2! (10 being advanced, 1 being very easy.)

The whole effect is 9/10, because not everything is perfect.

Recommended or not recommended? Definitely Recommended! :)

Misleading Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 13th, 2014
I watched this video and feel very disappointed. I've never written a review and was so disappointed that I want to say please don't waste your money on this. I wish I could get my money back. Not very practical and does not have that many applications because of the method. I saw the method and went are you serious
???? The trailer makes it look much better then it is.

When I first seen the demo of this I said I just had to get it.There was no peeks involved so from the video it was like actual mind reading.somi paid the money and got the download.First thing I said was when I seem how it was don was,well that was a waste of money I can't do that.First time I did it on live person,BAM,it worked.The method used is genius and so easy when you see it.Matthew explains every detail very good,it's nearly impossible to fail at this.once practiced,which doesn't take long if your a magician at least a year,you will have it down.Also as with everything if the method fails,due to the spectator,Matthew gives you a failure option that is worth the price of the download alone.Its killer.And just when you think it can't get any better he gives you an extra bonus,the bonus again is worth the price of the download itself.Its completely impromptu only uses marker and peeks,tears or tracing paper.normal items used.

Only thing I would say negative.You can really only predict numbers with this.It says you can do simple shapes but that would be extremely hard to do and it's not even mentioned on the DVD so it can only be done with numbers.

All in all,if your interested in mind reading,mentalism and want killer effects buy this won't regret it.Its highly underpriced.

Good Effect for beginners Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 25th, 2013
I am a beginner. and I was able to get down the method pretty easily. I think that if I work on the subtleties more this will be a real fooler.

Awesome Report this review

The trick is great and they thought of everything that will help you finish strong. If the spectator tries to mess with you he teaches you how to always be one step forward. I do a lot of mentalism magic and this will definetely set in and probably be my strongest
