Insight by Hugo Shelley


 

Insight PRO includes a deck of 52 electronic playing cards. Invisible RFID chips embedded in each card transmit the suit and value to the Insight reader, a miniature device that will respond with a coded vibration or send the information to a nearby iPhone.

Now with the ability to detect a stack of up to three cards simultaneously, Insight is better than ever before.

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 respond with a coded vibration, or send the information to a nearby iPhone.

Insight Double Blank Cards are extra refill cards for ESP Insight. Insight double-sided blanks are available in sets of 5 and can be programmed with any number from 1-13 using the Insight reader. They are the same thickness as normal playing cards and can be read at a distance of 4.5 inches (11.5cm).

Insight Blank Face Cards are extra refill cards for Insight Pro. Insight single-sided blanks are available in sets of 5 and can be programmed with any number from 1-13 using the Insight reader. They are the same thickness as normal playing cards and can be read at a distance of 4.5 inches (11.5cm).

The Basic Effect

The performer hands the deck to a volunteer and invites them to choose their favorite card, placing the rest of the deck aside. Without touching the volunteer or the deck, the performer reveals the chosen card.

Included are seven incredible new routines by Colin McLeod and Mark Elsdon.

The Reader

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 the cards with a single gesture. When connected to an iPhone, the reader can be positioned under a table for a truly hands-free performance.

The Deck

The Insight deck (Phoenix edition) is the very first electronic deck 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 perfectly thin and flat. The deck can be shuffled and handled as normal, and is designed to last a lifetime.

And finally...

An iPhone is not included 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 the effects can be performed using the reader alone.
