- UNIVERSAL DETECTOR

Very versatile method that can be very useful and bring something visual to your existing routines to find cards, water, magnetic fields , heat , light , alcohol , coins , etc...Can be done with business cards,post cards,playing cards,beer mats,etc.... right under the Spectators eyes .
Make borrowed objects move suddenly even though you are far away . You will need to buy the gimmick (very rare but cheap ,sold in only one place but shipped all over the world ). No wires, no magnets ,no electronics.< Less
