Synchronicity by Jeff Sheridan, George Robinson(c. 2017) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
George Robinson (of Viking Mfg.) began this idea by using the effect Tapp-it invented by U.S. amateur mathematician and magician Royal V. Heath c. 1925. George came up with the box idea, and the hidden marks in the ESP designs and shared the idea with Jeff who came up with the routine and handling.
A well priced and effective idea from Jeff Sheridan with some great looking boxes that I’m sure you’ll find other uses for! The other good thing is that although it comes with five items the boxes are large enough that you could pretty much choose any five small objects to use which can greatly enhance the patter possibilities. Needless to say the performer can always find the box that contains the spectator’s item.
Effect: Jeff Sheridan is quite a clever performer and inventor and as many of you know, Jeff began the modern day movement of street magic in NY. While Jeff continues to perform on the Continent, he has taken some time off to bring some of his creations to life. Synchronicity is his latest and it is a winner.
You receive 5 beautifully executed wooden boxes engraved with ESP symbols. Each box contains an interesting item; a key, a ring, a small pencil, a stone and a penny.
The spectator mixes the boxes and then settles on one without knowing its contents. The performer turns his back so that he can not see the spectator’s selection. The spectator then replaces the box and mixes it with the others.
Now comes the interesting part. The performer begins tapping the lid of each box at random and then asks the spectator to silently spell the name of the item he is thinking of as the performer continues to tap the boxes. When the spectator finishes spelling the item (let’s assume it the K-E-Y), he calls ‘stop’. The performer pushes the box that he last tapped forward and it proves to be the box that contains the thought of object!
POINTS TO REMEMBER:
There is no force. Each box contains only one object and there are no duplicates. The performer turns his back when the selection is made and the boxes are mixed. The performer does not ask any questions and there is no form of ‘magician’s choice’, etc. Boxes can be examined and the effect can be repeated with a different outcome. Instant reset. Comes with all the props including detailed instructions.
NOTE: A second routine is included where the spectator hides a personal object in one of the boxes and you divine the correct box. Let your imagination run wild with Synchronicity.
