REVIEW

This is a very ingenious routine. What makes it so special is that it creates a souvenir that I think the participant will likely hold onto.

The instruction is very good and very much to the point as most Sansminds products. It is not a long DVD, with around 30 minutes of instruction

CAUTION

Of course, the corner that they hold is from the middle of the card, not the corner of the card. Therefore, the back side is not going to have a white edge if you are using cards such as bicycle with a white border. The instruction discusses the psychology of this issue as well as different ways to handle this. I don’t think this is an issue at all, in fact it is part of the excitement of performing magic in using your ability to alter your spectators thoughts, creating a suspension of belief.

VERDICT

Excellent routine and very good instruction


Suggestions from the Reviewer

Think about the value of the souvenirs you give away. Many magicians believe that anything they give out as a result of a good magic trick will be a treasured souvenir. While sometimes that is true, often it is not.

Sometimes you can combine a couple different routines and create a very special souvenir. Here is a suggestion:

Do Spaceshifter second to last in your set. Then do String Theory by Vince Mendoza. Tie the resulting restored string from String Theory to the hole from Spaceshifter and give it away as an inspirational bookmark.

One more thing to try: Try tearing out the corner in somewhat the shape of a heart.

Available at your favorite Murphy’s Magic dealer

Manufacturer's Description:

Space Shifter is a piece of extremely visual eye candy. The visual is so strong, even perform with no presentation, spectators freak out every single time!

Imagine getting your spectator to select a card and sign it. A corner of the card is torn off for the spectator to keep in one hand. Your spectator holds onto the card in the other hand. With a snap of the finger, the 'space' of the missing corner visually jumps to the center of the signed card. The corner your spectator is holding, also changes to fit into the 'space'.

A strong card effect that talks to your audience across language barriers. Perfect for close up, strolling, or loud environments where you need to capture audience attention in the matter of seconds.

Look no further, this is Space Shifter.
