When I first saw this I was a little skeptic because of Peter's performance style. He is very bold
and not afraid to miss, which makes some of his material hard for me to use. However, this is one of
his best effects that I have seen. This can be utilized in many different situations, and is well
taught with a lot of detail. This is a no brainer download for me, especially at only .

After buying Astronomical I thought I'd come check out Peter's new release, Hack, as well. He mainly
shares 3 things, (essentially) a phone lock code divination, a name/contact divination, and a backup
Let's go through each of them.
Phone lock divination - Probably
well worth the price of this entire download. Great concept, he provides a different approach for
Android phones, but it does work best on iPhones. HOWEVER, he has already released this concept in
his lecture dvd The Experience, which Penguin carries, but it did not receive that much light.
Name contact divination - Great concept... HOWEVER the new iPhone update actually removes the
functionality required to make this work. All newly updates phones will not work for this phone
unless you get really luck and someone sets up their phone the right way (which is really rare with
the new change).
Backup pin divination - Peter provides great detail on a take on an old
concept. The effect/method is nothing new, but his ideas on delivery and scripting is well worth
learning if it's something you're interested in

I think the method is genius, but if you would see the full trick und you are young and know how you
phone and widgets work, it's a bit obvious. I did the trick about 5 times and and 2 out of 5 know
how I did it.

$15 for a trick to lock into a phone. I was shaky on buying this, I admit. Then I watched the
instructional AND IT IS TOTALY WORTH IT. I have not gotten caught once on how this is done. It makes
people freak out and you can do it again with another variation. This is a stunning trick and very
well taught by Pete Turner. I highly recommend it.

It's a good trick, but only for Iphone.
The android version is bad explained and is really

While Mr. Turner's initial concept is similar to Mr. Murray's "Code Breaker", I'll credit him for
having his own unique technique (which I feel makes room for a better presentation).
said, I used his various methods during both my staged performance as well as my strolling demos,
during which all on-lookers were impressed time and time again.
Some of his personal patter
sparked great segue ideas from/into related mentalism acts in my own show!

This kind of tricks is self-working and thus is great for even amateur magician. Without giving
anything away, I would say it relies mostly on what the spectator have and know and the spectators
do most of the work. That said, the way to present this very trick can be improved.
The method is extremely simple, if you did it right away spectators could figure it out. Highly
recommend practicing presentation over method since that how easy it is. However, peter adds
variation such as a "random" number divine and android phone unlock. The android method is a bit
sketchy but in the right hands can be a stunning effect.
Why do you not explain how you go in depth through how you guess the person got a new job. Ive been
looking forward to that this whole time.
I LOVED IT. if you like peter turner, you will love this purchase
