Review of The Matrix Pad Reloaded

In “The Matrix Pad Reloaded” the performer draws four dots on the four corners of a post-it, then, one at a time, visibly drags the dots to one corner of the post-it, at which point the note can be peeled off and given to the spectator to keep. Combining elements of the Matrix plot and Martin Lewis’ Cardiographic, Richard Griffin has created a very visual, practical, and easily reset effect, well within the ability of most performers.

“The Matrix Pad Reloaded” comes with the necessary gimmicks, 2 post-it notepads, a template for drawing the circles, a carrying case and a DVD with clear and easy to follow instructions. The method itself is clever and well constructed, allowing the spectators to actually see the dots be moved, then, after the fourth dot has traveled, to immediately examine the post-it. (While this description isn’t 100% accurate, the method will make it seem that way to the spectator.)

Apart from the outstanding method, what I really appreciate about this release is its practicality and how complete the package is. You can prepare for multiple performances ahead of time and the reset is quick and easy. It also comes with a carrying case, making pocket management a breeze and ensuring the gimmick doesn’t get damaged or disturbed as you walk around, while still making it easy to bring the pad into play. The inclusion of an extra notepad, as well as a template to ensure the drawn dots are all the same size, make this a perfect release, ready to be added to your repertoire almost out of the box.

If you’re looking for an excellent and offbeat piece of magic, “The Matrix Pad Reloaded” checks all the boxes. It’s practical, magical, deceptive, and leaves the spectators with an impossible object. It’s not a card trick, not a coin trick, and the gimmick does most of the heavy lifting for you, so you can focus on presenting the effect. I wish all products were this well designed, thought out and packaged. Highly recommended.
