Forget everything you've ever seen!

Forget all the classic methods you've ever seen!

MATRIX-ART uses a totally new and incredible method and construction!

We can guarantee that the mechanism used is DIABOLICAL! You will go nuts when you see this gimmick, NEVER before seen in magic!

Each gimmick is handmade and requires several hours of work. The result is simply amazing. Visual magic at its very best!

Imagine the following effect:

A spectator is invited to choose a card from your deck.

Take a punch out of your pocket, take the spectator's card in one hand and the punch in the other. Make a hole in each corner of the card!

No optical or other illusions, you now hold a card with four holes that are clearly visible and real!

Let the show begin...
Show one, two, three, and four holes...
Slowly bring your fingers to the first hole... and move it as if nothing had happened!

Yes, yes, you read that right! You move the first hole over next to the second hole! As simple and impossible as unimaginable!

Continue the show and move the next hole, your spectators won't believe their eyes! How do you move real holes?
It's just impossible!
The last hole is even more unbelievable, you say!
Bring two fingers toward this final hole, and pull it right off the card. Yes yes, the last hole is no longer on the card but between your fingers! Your spectators won't believe it... Throw the hole you are holding in your hand towards the other 3 on the card...
In full view, the hole re-materializes next to the others!
It's mind blowing, yet true, NO BLACK ART or anything comparable.
The card is still held between your two fingers! Show it up very close... Your spectators will be able to see that the holes are very real and that they are all now grouped in the same corner!

Explain to your spectators that to put a hole back in each corner you just have to snap your fingers! Watch carefully...

Snap your fingers, and in full view, in full light, right in front of your spectators' eyes, the holes jump and return to their initial positions, i.e. one hole in each corner!

This moment is absolutely exceptional and purely magical!
Visual magic just a few inches from the eyes of your spectators. But the show doesn't stop there... This time, you remove one by one the holes from the card! It's completely crazy and impossible!
Throw them all together in a corner of the card...
The holes materialize in the same corner, right in front of your spectators.

There seem to be no limits to your ability to move matter!
Believe it or not, the holes are still very real!

To finish, move them again, one by one to put them back as they were at the beginning, one in each corner, and give the card to your spectators so that they can examine it.

This is indeed the card chosen at the beginning, this one now has 4 holes that the spectator will never be able to move.

Keep in mind the following:

  • The Matrix-Art card is a marvel of manufacturing, a true work of art, we can guarantee it!
  • No Flap! The card is made to withstand professional and intensive use.
  • No manipulation. The routine is extremely easy to master, and moving the holes is automatic, entirely under your control!
  • No optical illusion! These are real holes, at each step or move, you can pass your hand behind to show that there is no illusion or Black Art.
  • The gimmick card can be shown very, very closely, there is absolutely nothing to see.
  • Reset is immediate.

I mean, this thing is a piece of art. I'm not entirely sure I've ever seen anything like this. How incredibly clever and so deceptively simple to perform.

Highly visual.
Simple to master.
Seems constructed well

Watch all instruction before doing anything. Be very careful with this product, if you break it.....it could be very hard to fix.

Crazy concept. So well done. Must have taken a few hours to put this together. i'm going to cherish and baby it.

Why 10. This is quality. You can see the love and time put into this thing. These days you buy a gimmick or trick like this and you have to return it multiple times until you get a good one. Matrix is more complex than all those gimmicks put together yet it is solid and you know it’ll last. Sure if you don’t take care of it the card may break. Trust me you don’t want it to break, it’ll be pretty much done at that point. You would have to most likely contact the creator to help you repair. Anyway this is worth every dollar it costs. It’s soooo visual and the instruction video is made to teach you how to use it quick. I wouldn’t mess with it until you watch the video. It seems like there is a lot going on, really there is but it’s built so you don’t have to do a lot to make it work. Love this effect.

Best gimmicked card ever Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 16th, 2020
I’ve been lucky enough to purchase this trick the exact same moment it’s popped out in PM’s New Arrivals section. Due to the fact I’m leaving all my packages in quarentine (maybe I’m a bit paranoid), I’ve just opened it. If I had opened it before, I’d probably bought one more while it was in stock. I’ve never seen any matrix routine with cards, but once it was a Mickael Chatelain’s creation I knew a could trust with eyes closed.
The pack states it is the best gimmicked card in the world and it truly is. Together with Raffi Kazama’s Kadabra gimmick, this is a work of art card in terms of engineering and construction in every aspect. There’s A LOT of work put on each card, that it seems a theatrical stage adapted to a single card. There’s a lot going on with the action of only two fingers effortlessly...

I can’t praise it enough. It’s worth every penny.
Thumbs up to Mr. Chatelain!!!!! He did it again!

MATRIX ART! What is it? Why is this more $ than Mickael's usual 25-40$$ price range? Well I am here to share just why you should invest in one. Maybe two! I know ill be getting another once it comes back in stock

I have followed Mr Chatelain's work since getting into magic 3-4 years ago professionally besides chris angel kits as a kid. I know there are many many versions of moving hole principle, and look nomore as Mickael has released a BEAST!!!

The only thing about the gimmick i will say for you is that it has a lot of moving parts, but do not fear - it will hold up and last a very long time if you care for it well. I recommend putting it in a packet trick little wallets that you put cards into. As a loyal frequent customer P3 included one so ask if you're a regular too. I was a little skittish at first because of that method is connected to all the moving parts however It is made so well I have no more worries and its really durable, strong and well made.

I was lucky enough to get the first batch, I knew this would be a hot item - I was hesitant on the price but to be honest when you see the secret you will be fooled that is no doubt at all as this is just a brand new original concept merged with a couple of priniciples we all know. Keep an eye out for when this comes back in stock, if you'd like to see myself doing a little video you can see on IG @ AndrewAceMagic. Other then that, thank you to Mickael, Penguin and all the people that made this possible.

Please dont get it, this had a run of originally only handmade 50 units, marked by him on the paper as a souvinere , but they will likely get Mickael to make more or a production company. This is way too good to share, and I am a mentalist who loves to perform visual magic like this, HC+ and Revolution walking around with me.

Hope this was helpful, reach out at IG above or feel free to email with any questions though please no fishing- do research as I did, talk to P3 and I'd be happy to help in any other way to share my experience with it for the past week. AndrewAceMagic@Gmail.com

Stay Magical,

Michael is such a clever and skilled gimmick maker. The complexity of this card completely boggles the mind. It works flawlessly and is very easy to do. It looks very magical! The gimmick is practically invisible from only a short distance away.
