Skynet Project

Post by Richard W » Sat Apr 20, 2019 2:32 am

This looks interesting not sure what to think yet. What do you think? Think a little louder I can't hear you. ;)

Video on the link check it out.

In card magic, free choice is often an illusion, but for magicians and keen spectators, that illusion is easily broken.

Marc Lavelle's Skynet Project is the magician's ultimate tool for bringing in any freely chosen or thought-of card into play silently and secretly. It's an easy-to-manage utility index system that gives the user 100% unrestricted access to every card in the deck whenever and wherever they want!

You simply ask the spectator to think of any playing card. And before you can complete the sentence, "was there a reason you chose this card?", their thought-of card is quietly waiting on your palm, ready to be revealed using any method you have in your arsenal. No shuffling through a deck to find their card, no card sleights required - to them there isn't even a deck in play!

Skynet Project is by far, the easiest full-deck index available on the market. It's literally as easy as counting from 1,2,3. (Seriously, counting from 1 to 3 is part of the method). There is no memory work required, and best of all, unlike many other index systems, Marc Lavelle's Skynet Project requires no pocket space.

    Easy to learn
    Easy to use
    Resets in seconds
    Requires no pocket space
    Comes with Marc Lavelle's signature opener
    Stealthy and quiet
    Invisible to spectators
    No forcing or restrictions of any kind
    Adds another layer of deception to routines you already perform
    No gaffs, or thin cards necessary - all cards are standard and can be immediately examined or given away
    Works with any deck

Initiate the Skynet System and fool even your toughest audiences.

If this index system takes up no pocket space how do you use it.
Anyone familiar with this system?

Ok I found out it is a wearable you can have many places.

The creator Marc says:

I have mine set up as a single gimmick, you CAN permanently split it into two should you want to, not my preference! As for the 'where' - that is difficult to answer as there is no one 'correct' way - it has several options, depending on preference. You could have it on your waist (like me), the hem of a jacket (sometimes like me), the front of your hoodie/t-shirt (Like Javier in the Trailer - which I LOVE!), on a close up pad/stage table (sometimes like me), on the inside of the front of your jacket (Literally just thought of this one!) It is all preference!

Some brilliant guy came up with this routine and Marc loves it. :mrgreen:

Another idea, if possible, is to have a bag on the table full of blank faced cards all folded up. They name one, reach into the bag and pull one out, first reveal is it is their named card which is magical in itself. Secondly, people from the group pull out cards at random and open them to reveal they are all blank. Alternatively obviously they can pull cards out first and then you reach in and 'pull one out'. Reveal you got the named card only for them to have blanks. There will be plenty of ideas for this, sounds great!

I know the feeling Richard! Most of what I post on here lately gets no response. I am extremely interesting and present absolutely wonderful posts so I can’t understand what the problem is... ;)

No one is interested in the topics we bring? Downright despicable I say! :D

In my case, I attempt to drum up Tenyo conversation. The nerve of me trying to talk Tenyo on the Tenyo Forum! :roll:

Maybe everyone is just all Tenyo talked out. :cry:
It's a Tenyo day in the neighborhood!

Wow there is life after death. I thought I was the last man standing. Well on TMC they are talking about this so thought I'd see what would happen here. It went as expected. :?

Now if I had said Magic Wagon this thread would have been full. :D

I'll have to do that next time. Title it Magic Wagon and when they open it..... HA HA made you look! :lol:

Wait....did you say Magic Wagon? Ok, I'm here. LOL.

Skynet looks kinda weak. The presentation video didn't impress me.

Making their card appear in a previously empty bag is the worse example they could show. But there is many ways to use this.

The reason I am not interested in these kind of effects is because they need some good sleight of hand to make it into a good routine and a true miracle, which I simply can't do :D

Well it does say..... no card sleights required - to them there isn't even a deck in play!

Skynet Project is by far, the easiest full-deck index available on the market. It's literally as easy as counting from 1,2,3. (Seriously, counting from 1 to 3 is part of the method).

All cards are pre folded into a mercury fold easy to palm if need be and it will.
