This looks like special effects. Well, it does if you want it to. "In the Clear" is such a perfect switching device that you can do it secretly to switch an item without anyone realizing it, or you can direct everyone's attention to it and perform JAW DROPPING transformations inches away from their eyes.

It's so hard to pick the single best part..

THE BEST PART? Use ANY deck. As long as it comes in cellophane, it'll work perfectly.

Wait, no.. THE BEST PART? The box is normal and examinable. No cuts or slits are made in the card box so you can really use any deck. The cellophane is also fully examinable. Even after the gimmick is installed, you can remove it quickly & easily, and your card box is 100% unharmed and examinable!

The best part? The gimmick does all the work, is whisper silent, hard to see, even if it's accidentally exposed. It takes basically zero skill to operate, too. If you can hold a deck of cards, you can use "In the Clear"

Nicholas Lawrence is known for clever inventions, but from today on he may be known best for In the Clear. It's that good.

Easy enough for beginners used by professionals Report this review

I Will Not Waste Your Time by going on for 10 minutes about how much I love this trick. It deserves 5 out of 5 stars and if you buy it you will love it. Enough said.

Now onto the information that you actually care about.

If you are new to card tricks you will be required to learn a couple of very basic moves that can be perfected in a short time. If you already know how to handle cards then you will be able to perform this right away.

I absolutely love the gimmick used for this trick. I was afraid that the gimmick for this trick was going to be some kind of complex mechanism that was going to break very easily. I was very pleased to find that the concept for this gimmick is extremely straightforward and easy to use. It will also last for a very long time if it is well taken care of.

As you already know I cannot give away how this trick works. So just let me just say that this trick has a gimmick that works with other tricks that are sold on Penguin Magic. I have two other magic tricks that I can use hand in hand with this magic trick. In fact the other magic tricks that I own work so well with this trick that they make the clean up for this trick (which is extremely easy) even cleaner and easier. In other words once you know how this trick works, look on penguin magic for other tricks that you think might work in a similar way. You will be pleasantly surprised to find out that the gimmicks will work together and that you will be able to combine three different effects in one routine without having to change anything.

Just in case you didn't realize it by watching the video that shows this trick VERY CLEARLY, I am going to inform you of a couple of things that you are going to have to provide in order for this to work.

You will need to provide your own deck of cards. (This should be obvious since it doesn't say anywhere that it comes with one)

You will need to sacrifice one card every time you perform this trick. (This should be very obvious because you can see very clearly in the demo video that you will be giving the spectator their card that is signed by them to keep as a souvenir)

You are going to need to save your cellophane from your card boxes. (In the demo video you can clearly see that he makes the spectators card appear folded into fourths in the cellophane of his card box. We all know that cellophane can be damaged very easily and does not last forever so start saving the cellophane from all the card boxes that you buy)

Online tutorial can be reviewed right away. Clear instructions. Almost switch, they don't see it coming. So easy to perform, beginners must practice, intermediates and advanced can perform right away. Adding this to my list of switchout options.

As a working pro, stick with a Kennedy box or Clarity Box..much less to hide..

Simply Fantastic. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 10th, 2018
“Simple” is one of the hardest things to achieve. In art, in design, in storytelling. If you are someone who likes showing effects to friends and family-Get this. If you are a working professional-get this. The thinking alone is worth the price of admission and I’m rather surprised that this was released - I’ve got all the “boxes” and this has just as much impact and is much more practical in many ways. No extra pocket space required.

In The Clear Report this review

Excellent variation on the folded card to a closed container effect. I use the Kennedy Card Box in a like routine but as mentioned this method is less "magic prop" like. I expected explanations on the torn and restored card and dollar bill change effects shown in the ad. Will these be added to this download later?

This is crazy! It is easy to do and the cleanup is very smooth! This trick does take a little set up but you can do it very quickly. Yoi can use it right out the box so add it to your cart!

Cannot live without tthis Report this review

This is by far the smartest of any device or box I've ever used. Just throw everything else that is a box away. You HAVE the playing card case. USE it as the box to show a clear and captured card and then you can switch unseen with no moves. Fantastic!

Great Gimmick Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 8th, 2018
Not a bad effect. You will enjoy the easy, practical naturr of the gimmick. I also made the mistake of purchasing sealed but this totally makes up for it.

Unfortunately I am taking away star because I was looking forward to the coin and bill switches seen in the ad in the instructional video. All in all though I am happy with my purchase

BEST RELEASE OF THE YEAR! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 18th, 2018
Nicholas has teamed up with Penguin and created something special. You are getting a precision made gimmick that is fully customizable to any deck of your choosing and all you need is cellophane, and to watch the tutorial. I have disabilities & autism so this took me some time especially to learn the "move" that you do for boxes like this out there, i have never owned a box before - i was very close but just got Quiver, more of a visual switch device that you can do things with this too.

I have to say that this is really geared towards beginners in the sense of the way the video is explained. Yes the gimmick and product instructions are for any working pro, but the teaching is a bit slow for some people that know typical card moves, ACR routines, and the move you do for these boxes however the teaching is PERFECT for me. Even if i am a pro with my ACR's and sleights which i am not, just a hobbiest - I would be in heaven.

This is Penguin Magic's best created engineered gimmick since HC+. I thank you Penguin and Nicholas for doing this project, I look forward to seeing more of your work and I look forward to sharing some performances of IN THE CLEAR with people around me :)

Stay Magical,
- Andrew

Nicholas nailed it! This is the most innocent looking change/switch device I have seen. Extremely easy to use and perform with. And the device can be customized for different cards. Thanks Nicholas...nice work!
