Magic Lessons #76 – Card-O-Matic Trick
The Card-O-Matic trick is a fun little trick that you can make yourself. It is very satisfying to build your own magic props when you do it properly. To make this great, simple-to-build magic trick, just get the download, a pair of scissors and tape and you can build your very own Card-O-Matic machine in no time at all.
You will also need a pen and a rubber band. That is all you need and you can have the construction done in only 5 minutes.
This is just my spin on the Special Delivery card trick originally created by Bill Severn and Pete Biro. This trick is widely available in most libraries around the world. When people ask where the inspiration for these magic tricks originates, I say the same thing: library books. There is so much fun and interesting material available to you if you are willing to put the effort into searching it out in your local library. Even if that is too much effort, there are so many great resources you can access online for free. Don’t be afraid to explore.
When I stumbled upon, what would eventually be called the Card-O-Matic Trick, I realised that I only had to give it a new look and find a fresh presentational ploy that will inspire others to try out the trick.
Here’s the Basic Script From the Video:
Are you tired of card tricks that go this way, that way, anyway but the right way?
Then you need Card-O-Matic, the only card trick with the patented forward and reverse buttons.
Allow me to demonstrate …
We’ve all had those days when you get the angle of the card dangle all wrong … ooops! … someone isn’t using Card-O-Matic. Simply push the reverse button … another day, another happy customer.
Easy to use, easy to own … Card-O-Matic
If your card is unable to move for some reason while you are twisting the pencil, I’d suggest that it probably has something to do with the rubber band being unable to make contact. If this is the case for you, squeeze the packet gently as you rotate the pencil and that should help.
