Modern Math by Richard Gerlitz(c. 2006) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
Mental addition tricks have abounded in various presentations. Owen provides us with their Miracle Slate and Mel Babcock has Psychic Arithmetic. Now, along comes Richard to take this trick to a grand level and showcasing it in gorgeous museum quality props. For any avid collector of Mini-Magic, Richard will have you drooling over Modern Math. It is, without doubt, one of the most beautiful example of Mini-Magic I ever seen to date.
The mechanics are carefree and smooth. He thinks of everything … True Love being a good example. Whether the spectator uses 2, 3 or all 4 inner tubes, you have the total sum already predicted before the last inner tube is even assembled onto the apparatus. You don’t even have to look at any of the numbers at all and you can be at quite a distance from the props when you write down the final predicted total.
Effect: The unit features the image of Confucius and is decorated with beads from an ancient Chinese Abacus. It consists of 4 individual tubes each containing different Arabic and Chinese number combinations. These can be inserted into the unit and rotated to create over 4000 different 2 digit, 3 digit, or 4 digit number combinations. The spectator assembles the unit, and before any number selections are made, the magician leaves the room. After the number selections are chosen and totaled with the supplied calculator, the magician announces the total from out of the room. Many variations are possible.
Approx. Price: $1000.00 (2006) ***Notice: I am not a dealer and this item is not for sale on this site. It maybe available in the links below or at our sister site: qualitymagicsales.com, but not from here so please do not ask.
