Insight has evolved – featuring a new reader with the ability to detect three cards simultaneously!
Insight ESP includes a set of 5 electronic ESP cards and 5 blank cards. Invisible RFID chips embedded in each card transmit the value to the Insight reader, a miniature device that will quietly vibrate the value of the card, or send it to a nearby iPhone.
The basic effect
The performer hands the cards to a volunteer and invites them to focus on any card, placing the rest of them aside. Without touching the volunteer or the deck, the performer reveals the thought-of symbol.
Included are seven incredible new routines by Colin Cloud and Mark Elsdon. While these routines are written for the Insight Pro, many of them can be adapted for use with ESP cards.
The reader features both wireless transmission and on-board vibration cuing. At only 77 x 33mm it’s incredibly small, with a range that allows you to detect cards and tags with a single gesture. The battery will last for over 10 hours on a single charge and is both rechargeable and replaceable
The Insight cards (Phoenix edition) are the very first electronic ESP cards to be designed from the ground up specifically for magicians. The chips and antenna are embedded in the cards during the manufacturing process, ensuring that each card is as thin as a normal playing cards.
A new surface finish ensures that the cards are resistant to marks and tears – the blank cards can even be written on with a Sharpie and the writing removed with solvent.
And finally …
We don’t ship an iPhone with the device, but if you have one already (4S and above) you can unlock Insight’s wireless features by purchasing the Insight Reader app available from the App Store. Apple Watch support is included amongst a number of other new features …
Note that this is an optional feature only – the majority of effects can be performed using the reader alone.
