Quantum Mechanics is a new DVD from Irving Quant revealing a selection of his finest card magic and an awesome new technique for controlling not just a single card, but multiple cards in a way you probably never imagined. He calls it the Distribution Technique, and in our opinion, unlocks a whole new level for card magicians.

Ever since I purchased Chad Nelson's Surfaced DVD that teaches his amazing utility card sleight the Clip Shift, I have been searching for other great utility moves with a deck of cards. Which is EXACTLY what Irving Quant teaches in this DVD, and I have really been enjoying all of the different applications that you can accomplish using the Distribution Technique. Plus all of the other great sleights and card effects that are taught by Irving, are truly some amazing and ingenious sleights and effects.
However, the sleights needed to perform both the basic methods of this utility move and the effects made possible, will need quite a bit of practice. Since I love practicing magic just as much as I love performing magic, some others might find the moves taught within this DVD to be complicated. You will need much more than 10 minutes or even an hour of practice to feel confident enough to share this beautiful array of sleights to your spectators.
As with all truly great utility moves, it would be wise to give all of the sleights the proper practice and time they deserve. So if anyone reading this is a move monkey, like myself, I highly suggest purchasing this DVD and you will have some absolutely, tremendous great sleights and effects at your disposal that will truly drop jaws where ever you perform!
Not practical. Report this review

While I very much appreciate the technical prowess and beauty of these effects, I don't feel that the method is very practical in most situations. It's brilliant, but simply too easy to be seen by spectators. I'm sure that someone is going to say that this is why you use misdirection, but it's simply too likely to fail due to people's tendencies to burn your hands when you're doing card tricks.
I would actually recommend that you buy this, because the method is very slick, and there are a few situations where it plays well, but overall I am very disappointed in the real world practicality of the distribution technique.
Perhaps a superior card-worker will get more mileage out of this, but for me it's been relegated to the bottom shelf and used as a gimmicky addition to a card cheat routine.
With the utmost scrutiny, I give this 5 stars! Report this review

I have never given any product five stars before, I take my ratings very seriously and wait months, even years to make a full decision on how many stars I'm going to give something. I wrote a review for this longer than some short stories originally, but that got lost and it was probably too long anyway. I'll try to make this one short and to the point while at the same time; sincere, and believable.
First off I'd like to make a little disclaimer; If you do not have much experience with card magic yet, I feel that I should tell you that you will need to learn "some type" of pass to perform "some" of the material in the "same way that Irving does" in the trailer for this DVD. (and don't think I'm biased not taking a star away for that, I was not very experienced when I got the DVD and was upset when I found out that I needed to learn a pass. Don't be naive about it, if you are going to do card magic you are going to have to learn some kind or type of pass. It is more crucial than the double lift, I found that this is a rule that has been accepted for hundreds of years).
Now onto the rating of the material itself:
The Distribution Technique
I'll start with the practicality as I have heard many negative or doubtful things about the sleight in this regard. I’m telling you all right now that I have done this maneuver right in front of peoples faces “several times in a row” as they stare dead into my hands; only to have them honestly confess that they didn't see me do anything but what I said I was going to do (rub the deck little). I have left some people who are familiar with sleight of hand so oblivious that they though it was some kind of joke, as I did the same exercise with everything face down over and over again telling them to be more and more observant each time, and to try to catch what I was doing. I could tell, they simply didn't believe I was doing anything. If you practice well enough, that is the level of deceptiveness you can bring to this sleight.
Difficulty and Teaching
I never try to discriminate a sleight based on its difficulty, but I must say that I was relieved that mastering this move has been such a breeze, this is because of the moves organic design and Irving’s unbelievable teaching in the DVD. It’s the most addictive move I have ever come across, it is so simple to learn and practice, as you can do the move the same way with your body in nearly any position, sitting or standing or crouching, ect., the angles are totally intuitive, and it's fairly easy to get them right in a simple and deceptive manner. I have never enjoyed learning something quite this much.
DVD and Material Quality
This is probably the best quality “teaching DVD” there is, out of all the DVD’s I’ve gotten, this by far has the best menu set-up’s, the best HD video and auto resolution, and the best lighting (important!), I mean the best, it’s good! The material (tricks/effects) is no different, I found at least 95% of the effects in this DVD to be really good effects that I wanted to do, and easily could do with the Distribution Technique (and most of it without having to learn a pass), which is so rare among DVD releases.
I’ve seen allot of top magicians say that "this move or that move" has unlimited utility and use’s, and that it will take you’re card magic to the next level….. Well this move, is the only one so far, that “I”, will say such a thing about. It will not only change and elevate you, your magic, and your whole perspective in the art forever, but it has silently done so to the art itself. It truly has.
