Mentalism+ is proud to present Midas, an exciting new tool for the working mentalist. Midas is truly a landmark utility device that scores full marks for usability and versatility. Combining cutting edge technology and exceptional conceal ability, Midas gives you the power to detect metal covertly and accurately. We won’t patronize you with the possibilities that such a device opens up, needless to say if you cannot see what is possible, this device is not for you.
Midas is the world’s smallest pulse induction metal detector designed by James Cheung and Reg Martin specifically for mentalists. The search head is worn on the wrist and is connected to a silent vibrating body worn unit with a remote control. The search head is attached to the vibrator with a 1m lead and the remote is attached to that using a 30cm lead. The configuration has been designed to minimize lead snag and maximize concealment. If comfort, conceal ability and performance are important to you, Midas is really the only realistic choice on the market.
It utilizes the very latest auto-calibrating surface mounted circuitry allowing impressive miniaturization and performance that belies its size. The search field geometry has been optimized to provide proximity detection in all directions, eliminating the need for any ‘sweeping’ action thus allowing for natural looking usage and highly accurate detection characteristics. A very brief touch is all you need. Even the set-up is simple and minimal – Just turn it on and you’re good to go.
The performance figures are astonishing and have far exceeded the original planned specifications. Tests have shown that Midas will detect all metals, ferrous or non-ferrous including gold, silver, steel, iron, aluminum, nickel, brass, copper, tin, magnesium, copper, zinc, tin and rhodium. It also works with all known coinage from 10mm diameter upwards and will detect a pin at 1.5 inches, a coin envelope sized piece of foil or foil-coated paper at 4-6 inches and even a 1mm sliver of aluminum foil at 1 inch! We have even detected a cigarette packet at 6 inches and a wrapped stick of chewing gum at 3 inches. The operational range is up to 6 inches but the optimal operational range is between 0-3inches and will detect even through someone’s hand!
The more creative amongst you will see the impressive applications of such a device. Psychometry routines, Russian Roulette or ‘Find the Lady’ routines become instantly cleaner and more impossible. The possibilities that Midas opens up are impressive.
Each Midas is hand-built by Reg Martin and comes with a 1-year warranty.
The dimensions of the search head are 6cm x 3cm x 1cm and the vibration unit is 8cm x 4cm x 2cm. The remote is 7cm x 3cm x 2cm and is powered by 1 x 9V Battery.
