A playing card or business card is examined. You ask your audience to look for threads, motors, etc. Nothing will be found by either layman or magician! Even those familiar with The Floating Match can check for threads and find nothing! You then wave your empty hand over the tabled card in a magical pass. The card eerily comes to life and ZOOMS this way and that across the tabletop!It looks as if the card is being pushed and prodded by spirit forces! ZOOM the card directly into the spectator`s waiting hands for further examination! This look so much like real magic, you`ll be absolutely thrilled each time you perform it! Immediately repeatable and examinable before, during and after the performance! Spectators may grab your hands or the card at any time!Completely self-contained gimmicked card. Nothing to add or take away. No magnets and no blowing! Leave the gimmicked card with your spectator and repeat the effect the next time you see him!

(This review is for Zoom by Ben Harris)
This is one of my favorite ideas from Ben Harris. A gimmick that is examinable is a rare thing in magic. You are completely clean at the end, at the beginning, and whenever the spectator says "Hey let me see that card" And you don't have to worry about any thread hookups. There really is nothing to find from a practical perspective. They'll think you're using static electricity.

(This review is for Zoom by Ben Harris)
Making inanimate objects move without being touched is a cool effect to perform.

This clever self-contained setup allows you to do just that with a playing card. I like it even more that the card moves away from me and not towards me.

There's no complex rigging, no waxes, no wind ... it's just you, the card, and a smooth level surface.

There is a bit of a knack to making this look good.
So anticipate investing some practice time.

After the card moves, most people tend to reach for it - but they won't find anything. You can then repeat it or leverage it as a buildup for another routine.
