Derren Brown's Lottery Prediction Revealed
(8 votes)

Having now seen Derren's bullshit explanation we can conclude that since he had no intention of revealing the truth he would have no qualms about using the simplest method available, which is the one we illustrated.

In reality, it was all a very simple (but ingenious!) split-screen camera trick, dressed up as something else.

There was a slight technical glitch during his performance on Wednesday that gave it away. Plus, this technique has been used many times before.

The 'misdirection' in this case was to con everyone into sitting through an hour of his drivel in the hope of getting a remotely believable answer.

Derren's just a very good PERFORMER and ACTOR and he dresses it all up very well. All credit to him - but unfortunately he DIDNT predict the lottery results - he just used a clever camera technique.

Mindbender Card Bend Revealed
(8 votes)

Get sick of the bending spoon with mind trick? Then try to bend the card with your mind! Borrow a deck of card and ask the spectator to pick any card from the deck. You then place the card in the back of your hand and watch when the card slowly bends!

Marty's Psypic Revealed

A new mentalism trick easy enough for beginners, but versatile enough for advanced magicians!

The Effect: The performer lays an iPhone down on a table with an 1800's era family photograph displayed. A spectator chooses or thinks of any card or announces the first animal that comes to mind. The performer scrolls to the face of his great-great-grandfather Jack, zooms out, and amazingly, Jack is holding the card/animal that the spectator chose.

Stigmata by Wayne Houchin Revealed

A spectators thought becomes engraved on your arm!

The Effect: The spectator select a card. No forces! Then he remembered that card. With the thought in mind, the spectator squeezes your wrist. Tightly. When the spectator releases, red marks appear on your arm where they were squeezing. These marks of blood under the skin then slowly, visually, clearly re-arrange themselves into the shape of the spectator's selection. Seeing is believing!

A killer mentalism effect! Completely self working! Completely practical!

The Effect: The magician asks a spectator to touch any cards. All of the cards are different and no forces at all. Let's say the spectator touches the Six of Hearts. The magician then state that he will use this value of his selection to find another card. The deck is turned face down and the magician deals 6 card off the top of the deck. The 6th card is turned face up and it is a Eight of  Diamond. 8 more cards are dealt onto the table. The 8th card is turned face up and it is the Four of Spade.

The magician then asks a spectator to total up the three card face up on the table. In this case, the spectator answer will be 18. The magician then asks the spectator to turn over the first card that he freely selected. On the back of the card there is a message: "Turn the box over!". On the other side of the box, in bold maker, it is written 18! Killer self working effect!
