Isn’t technology simply amazing, with really magical gadgets and gizmos that stagger the imagination ? Every body uses TVs and computers and calculators and cell phones, taking them for granted, with a scant idea of the amazing technology that makes them possible. And things get better and smaller and cheaper every day.
They used to make cell phones which you had to carry in a hip holster, then they made them smaller to shirt pockets size, and beetle size. Now they have them made with conductive film technology, printed on the back of a business card which you can carry in your wallet ! And so cheap, you could get a dozen for the price of one, and give them away …”
Performer displays this “latest marvel of modern technology,” – a cell phone picture with a blank screen,.printed on a visiting or business card.
He punches out a number or message or query. A reply (SMS) appears on the blank screen of the phone, and the card with the SMS can be examined.
The effect conceived by Ian Adair is timely and topical, and extremely versatile. The message that appears could be a greeting like Happy Birthday or Merry Christmas, or it could be the revelation of some selection, like a playing card or design or word, or it could be a cute or saucy message or line, depending on your audience and performing conditions.
The outfit we supply enables you to perform the effect in four different ways. That’s four tricks for the price of one, and any of these worth much more than our modest price for the complete outfit.
The outfit comprises of several (40+) cards printed in full colour as illustrated, some with a cell phone with a blank screen, some with a punched screen, some half cards, and several pre-printed “message” cards.. You can use any of the messages supplied, or customise the extra blank cards very easily for messages of your choice.
