Here's something that will enable you to perform extremely visual changes that will amaze your audience.

Ten and more! That's the number of ultra-visual effects that come with this gimmick. Ten effects you'll be able to do immediately with no manipulation!

Use your own deck and its case. TORNADO-BOX is invisible to your spectators!

In just a few minutes you'll be coming up with your own effects - such is the strength and versatility of TORNADO-BOX! Draw right in front of your audience, shake, and the trick is DONE! Simple as that! Afterwards, don't forget to erase - as before, right in front of the audience.

Drawings that change, appearances, vanishes, materializations, and many other effects are now possible with no manipulation.

Here are just a few of the effects you can do with TORNADO-BOX:


A card is chosen and lost in the deck.
You or your spectator make lots of dots on the card case.
Ask your spectators if they know how to read Braille. No?
Shake the box in front of them and the dots regroup to spell out the name of the chosen card!

In front of your audience, you draw a 2€ coin on the card case.
A drawing? Shake the case and the drawing changes to a real 2€ coin.
Believe me, this effect is WAY out there!

A card is chosen. You write the name of the card in big letters on the case. Moment of truth - you show your prediction as the spectator reveals his selection. Oh no! You are WRONG!
You place the case face down on the table and concentrate.
You turn over the case...
As impossible as it seems, your prediction has changed. It is now 100% correct!
No suspicious moves; the prediction changes by itself.

This is no doubt my favorite TORNADO-BOX routine.
A card is chosen. You then write the name of four or five different cards on the back of the case and show them to everyone.
If the spectator sees his card, he is to say so without telling you which one. If not, you erase and try again.
When the spectator affirms that he sees his card, you concentrate on the names you have written and announce the correct chosen card.
You then hold the case vertically and tap it on the back of your hand.
This is really crazy - all the letters, all the names of the cards seem to fall and reassemble in a heap at the bottom of the case; only the name of the chosen card remains in place! This effect is really incredible!

Let's take a closer look at the gimmick you will receive:
can be adapted in seconds to work with any card case.
TORNADO-BOX is built to last even with frequent, professional usage.
For each effect, you can draw on the entire surface of your case. No size restrictions!
Before and after each effect, the surface of your case is completely clean! There's nothing to see, even up close!
Draw and shake! That's it. The change is DONE! Nothing could be easier!
Now imagine all the possible effects you could do with TORNADO-BOX.
You'll get no fewer than ten effects, ten very visual original ideas that you can do with your TORNADO-BOX gimmick. You'll no doubt discover MANY others on your own!

TORNADO-BOX is a creation of Mickael Chatelain.

Best trick by Mickael Chatelain. Everything is great about this trick. The only downside is the sound it makes when the change happens. Everyone ask whats that clicking noise but other than that the trick is awesome!!!!! This trick will probably sell out quick.

MC has done it again! I cannot put into words how great this product is. I have been a loyal supporter of Mickael Chatelain and his work however when I received this it was completely exceeding all of my expectations. It's not made of the way people may think it is and even if it is what you think it's built so well and will work on any red box of cards if you get it in red.

I don't have anything bad to say about this there is one little thing that might be A little problematic to some but not to me it's just a little bit of practice to maintain that from being as noticeable with the sound it may make however it's not noticeable to me especially when you're performing or even doing it in a room with noise. Other than that there's obviously a few things that people might comment on ano be a little concerned about but I'm not at all , regarding angle issues or things like that it's pretty well covered but if you hold it normal without making yourself seem skeptical being confident just like anything with practice you will be a pro in a half hour. You'll find yourself playing with this utility trick creating your own ideas and how you can use it for so many different things In coordination with other products you might have all the time as it is that addicting.

please understand that this is not just a gimmick one and only special InK effect... this is a utility device that you can use for anything that you think of it does not have to be for cards it can be for any kind of Revelation you want to do of course you will use it with cards if you're a person who will put this on a box of cards. I am so grateful for this purchase it is definitely the best purchase I have made this year hands down and I see this blowing up selling out very fast and that's why I'm going to purchase two more. You get everything you need and you'll be performing it within less than five minutes and he has a 17 minute video very short the understanding and setting up takes less than 10 minutes the rest is his ideas which are brilliant and you get about 10 of them Plus your imagination is the infinite limit , I have a great routine that combines this with double cross. One of the routines MC teaches in the video uses Two gimmicks and I love it so much getting A couple of more as I said. For what you get in this package compared to other effects that do Visual things like this and the price it is so affordable my routine using this with double cross and even little Door all makes a great combo. I had to leave a great review of this because it blew me away after realizing how it worked because it takes me a little bit to understand that ah ha moment of realizing how it works and certain things that you don't really see you until you get to the point where you don't realize the gimmick might do more than you think. Every single download or purchase/CGI or Ink related effect you will be tossing in your arsenal collecting dust as this is in the forefront always on you.

Thank you penguin for putting this out with the excellent affordable prices and once again thank you to mickael chatelain for the superb products that you create. I also ordered flashback which just came out as well and I never underestimate MC's work . If any of you have any questions on this I would be happy to assist my fellow penguin 🐧 magicians as always. AndrewAceMafic@Gmail.com. Just when you think you have learned everything you could do with this utility it hits you because the things he teaches you opens up more doors in the way I keep emphasizing how this is more of a utility Really tearing apart every other bank related affect on the market except doublecross of course and little door which go great together as I mentioned. I'd be happy to tell you got my routine I created with all three. Don't miss out on this before it sells out as the Price, the product, everything about it is a brilliantly made piece of work you'll always be able to blow minds impromptu Or a quick setup

Say goodbye to the other Ink effects that seem to be visual and everything you may get in about five products. Welcome to tornado box where you have a world to do anything you want whether it's simply drawing a prediction that changes, word, cards, rising cards, writing in Braille, X's- exes , drawing and object and making it appear out of nowhere and so on. The list is endless as I have said get this sells out! Enjoy, hope my review was helpful to those interested and feel free to reach out - Andrew

I bought from Penguin and really, really do not like Tornado Box. Here are my issues:

1) This effect is not presentable for close-up (as in right in front of a spectator). The gimmick does not look "seamless" like the promo or instructional video even 3-4 feet away in relatively poor lighting.

2) The gimmick is very noisy. Not good at all for quiet rooms or intimate performances

3) The gimmick is not examinable at all. Assuming you get past my #1 and #2 issues during a real-world performance and were able to perform a miracle, you most certainly cannot pass out the box for examination if requested. And, people will ask to see the box.

What's a trick that meets my very reasonable requirements? Little Door. Can be performed practically in front of spectator's face under any lighting conditions, it's a silent gimmick, you end super clean and can even hand them the box.

I broke some basic magic purchase rules when pulling the trigger on this purchase...sometimes it's best to stay away from tricks that don't provide full spectator performance videos. Also, there were no big-name testimonials. (Big-name testimonials aren't always a good gauge, but their recommendation can be a helpful deciding factor)

I cannot recommend this at all. If you perform for real people in diverse settings and not just in front of your mirror, there's a good chance you’re going to be extremely disappointed.

Never have I reviewed a product, but felt like I should say something about this. I'm no pro nor do I make money with magic. I just enjoy it, collect it, and break out a few things at home, work, or out and about. This can only be done on a stage or far away. This can not be examined. It is decently made and the effect looks pretty good from a distance. But it's nothing I could break out and get away with. And yes, there is a bit of a noise. I'm giving it 4 stars because I think it would be good for certain people under certain circumstances.

Great product with so much possibilities!
I did a mentalism trick at the IBM 185 meeting last night
and Tornado Box rocked the house.
This morning I told the baristas at Starbucks that I will draw 3 coffee drinks
on my card box and you will know exactly what I want. The drawings then morphed into my order written in detail above the coffee drinks. They were
totally blow away and wished they had more customers
like me.

Too loud,not for close up,great idea. Report this review

I bought this because it looked great on the trailer.
And again after 5 years of "no purchasing anything until I see it in front of me" I made the mistake and bought a product from watching the video.
The idea is great as you can see on the trailer.
But the sound that is happening when the gimmick is "working" is too loud.
Also you can't be close to your audience because from the side they will see that something is "strange".
Another product ended in my drawer.
