"Brilliant. So good you'll perform it for yourself." -R. Paul Wilson

"The Clarity Box is clearly amazing and utterly, totally, 100% fooling." -Andy Nyman

"David Regal’s Clarity Box is the most magical revelation of a playing card I have seen. Trust me on that." -Dean Dill

"Every once in a while, magicians strike gold. David Regal has created and produced the perfect close-up illusion." -Jim Steinmeyer

"I'm certainly going to use it and if Fred Kaps were alive I'm sure he would do so also. It's the ultimate answer to an already ingenious revelation." -Johnny Thompson aka The Great Tomsoni

"The illusion is so complete, your brain will not even think 'switch'." -John Bannon

"One of my favorite tricks made better by one of my favorite magicians. Regal's take on the Card in the Box effect is shear genius." -Mike Caveney

"I am very impressed by the thinking that went into The Clarity Box. David Regal is diabolical." -Lance Burton

"David has taken a major step forward with Clarity; he’s really thinking “inside the box.” Nothing is hidden, everything is transparent – except the method! Bruno Hennig and Fred Kaps would themselves have been fooled." -Simon Aronson

"Illusions are never clear; this must be magic." -Dave Buck

"With The Clarity Box, David Regal has taken a classic trick that was already perfect... and made it BETTER. " -John Lovick

"This is really clever. I want one!" -Eugene Burger

A card in plain view from the start...is the spectator's signed selection.

A bill that has been on display...is the spectator's initialed currency.

A prediction that EVERYONE can see...matches a truly free choice.

This is Magic. Clearly.

When unveiled at The Magic Castle, magicians returned over and over to watch the moment that seemed impossible… when a card that had been isolated within a clear box turned out to be a spectator’s signed selection.

The folded card was never out of sight. It was spilled out of the box and cleanly unfolded, yet it was the signed card.

That, in essence, is The Clarity Box.

The object need not be a card. It can be a signed bill, or a prediction – truly a utility prop.

This twist on Bruno Hennig’s classic card-to-canister effect possesses a clear difference: The object that is to be visibly spilled from the container is in plain view at all times.

Practical. Customizable. Simple

  • Its base measures only 2x2.5 inches – place it anywhere. And it resets in a second.

  • Use supplied design ideas or make up your own.

  • You'll enjoy watching yourself demonstrate it in front of the mirror… and be amazed.


  • One custom-made Clarity Box

  • Folded card gimmick

  • Extra blank gimmick (for customization)

  • Art for design options

  • Instructional DVD

The quality of The Clarity Box is exquisite. Custom-fashioned from thick, sparkling acrylic it has the look of a miniature museum showcase.

Bought it at MAGIC Live Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 23rd, 2013
I saw David do it once, at the booth, and then I found my hand reaching into my wallet for a C-note, like I was Dr. Strangelove.

It just seems impossible that a 3-dimensional object (a folded up bill or card) could somehow disappear into a plexiglass box. So this switch is just about as close to 'invisible' as you can get.

Something that Losander says on his DVD applies here. (And I paraphrase): "The trick is so good that even if you perform it poorly, it will still fool people."

My only (small) critique is that I wish Regal would have gone over some different ways to make a dollar vanish/switch a dollar for another. But if you've been in magic for more than a week, you can figure out how to do this on your own. I just suspect Regal would have some great tips on a bill/vanish switch.

But this is a small issue; the real issue is that Regal has created a wonderful prop that's easy to use and very deceptive.

A PERFECT illusion! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 3rd, 2013
My Clarity Box has arrived from Penguin!

If you ever worked with any of the other props in this plot, you can perform it right away. If you never perofmred this type of trick, the DVD has detalied instruction on how to use and perform with the Clarity Box.

I went right to the mirror to do the playing card illusion and it's beautiful. I like the size and the weight ( it fits nicely in my sport coat pocket ). It will last until you're in a box.

The Clarity Box is going to be one of the memorable releases for years to come.

The ad doesn't list the DVD contents, so I wrote it up for those that are interested.

DVD contents:

Intro: David demos the clarity box.

The Basic Principle: David gives the history of the signed card to box and goes all out with tribute to Bruno Hennig. He comes other cerators that have given their twist ( Scotty York, Jamy Ian Swiss, etc. )

Carity Box Explanation: David goes over the workings.

The gimmick and customization:

Why it works: David explains why the illusion is so powerful

A Basic Card Routine: David demos the signed card to box. David's "Emergency Use Only" trick is so funny, it would be had for me not to use it.

The Mercury Fold: instruction on the MCF sleight.

A Simpler Way: Anyone that doesn't do a Mercury Fold, David gives an alternate solution.

A Basic Bill Effect: David demos and teaches a signed bill trick. A bill is signed and isolated inside a silk and vanishes...it is inside the Calrity Box.

A Basic Mental Effect: David demos and teaches a prediction trick. 5 pieces of paper each have an ESP symbol written on them. The spectator will choose one ( no force ) and the prediction inside the box matches.

Care and Handling: David goes over ways to care for the prop.

Outro: David gives some closing comments

The perfect utility device Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 5th, 2013
What a deceptive, elegantly simple concept and beautifully made device! I'm using it as the perfect ending to a comedy version of the burnt and restored borrowed bill. I'll also put this to use in a variety of mental effects including Confabulation and a three billet version of Mental Epic. And that's just scratching the surface! Thank you, David, for giving us all an incredibly versatile tool to design our own miracles. Well done!

I once was blind, and now I see! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 30th, 2013
I have picked up lots of cool items from Penguin but this one tops them all! It is a cool see-through box and it comes pre-loaded with real magic that even this apprentice mage can work with! I simply lack the words to properly express both my happiness and gratitude to David Regal (and those who contributed to this effect). It is nice to be able to find a powerful effect like this one for a reasonable price.
Magic Box 5 stars (Truly Cool Looking Box!!)
Training DVD 5 stars
Education from the Master, David Regal (D-Real is his street name, heh) PRICELESS!
You ever make it to Seattle David, dinner is on me :o)

David Regal's Opus - Genius Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 29th, 2013
This is a VERY beautifully made and powerfully deceptive box.

Best thing I have bought in 2013 - and probably the best thing that Regal has ever released. A true utility gem.

Great DVD with many ideas and routines and also instructions on doing a mercury fold.

Easy to perform, unique, and very flexible in terms of customization. It doesn't get any better than this.

I wish David had included some kind of protective drawstring bag for this to protect it, but that is trivial as this is a five star release and a keeper.

I love my Clarity Box - you will too.

Nice but there are better options Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 10th, 2014
The box is well made and works as advertised. Considerations: it is bigger and heavier than other boxes on the market. It is also angle sensitive and, at least in my opion, better suited for a formal parlor show than for walk around. Reset is almost instant but it is not as examinable as the Mystery Box and other similar items. Granted, because it is clear, most will probably never ask to inspect the box. Bottom line, if examinability, portability, and angles are important factors for you, the Mystery Box is the way to go. If you intentd to use this in a formal close up show or platform show and like the visibility of a clear box, the Clarity Box is your winner.

Angles Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 13th, 2013
Clarity is a nice tool indeed. There is enough said about it in the previous reviews. But no single word about the angle sensivity. You can't place the box on the table when surrounded. I would say the box has an angle of 120 degrees. You can't use the box like you see in the teaser. This is another good example how custumers shall be fooled. The box itself get 5 stars but in combination with this betrayer video I can't give more than 3 stars.

Good for stand up Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 19th, 2013
This is a high quality item, but has its limitations. I think if used in a parlor setting it is perfect. For me, I would not want anyone up close or to my sides. I don't think I'm going to use this. Again the DVD and product is top notch, it's just not for me.

This magic is crystal clear! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 25th, 2013
I sent David a message the day after I received this item and thanked him for creating it. This is a piece that I will be performing for a long time. The options for the dollar bill and mentalism effects are also pretty sweet! I highly recommend The Clarity Box by David Regal!

5 Star Item Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 18th, 2013
Pros: Nice quality glass. easy to handle. great durability. And it is an utility prop. My most props are for mentalism. I've bought many different props. I think lots of the props related to switch device like bulldog switch clip, billet knife etc are not going to be used in my performance. This one kills many my mentalism props. This is the best of its kind.

Cons: I don't think you will use it for walk-around or street magic situation. If they look at the box from side views, it will be 100% okay but they can't see the box from the back. It's almost angle proof indeed because you stand right behind the box so that you block the sight of the people on the back but you can't hand them the box out. You need any place to put the box on. That's it. This is the only con.

There are many great fantastic effects on the market. But it is hard to meet performer's 5 star satisfaction. Some tricks need to be prepared a lot of things, not portable, easy to break, not repairable, need stooges or preshow, consumable, need to buy refills, some tricks can't be sure 100% success in performance, and etc.

However, you don't need to worry about anything else with Clarity Box. This is the biggest reason why I give 5 stars.
