Magicians and performing artists at every level all have one, if not dozens, of vanishing acts in their proverbial bag of tricks. This particular vanishing gimmick SansMinds Creative Lab was designed to disappear a smartphone. Known as “Flashy” it used the phones own camera flash as part of the misdirection, and will work with just about any type of phone on the market today.
Flashy plays particularly well for small group performances, walk ups and street performances. Ideally, performed at night or in some other type of low light conditions.
Vanishing tricks sometimes draw the ire of magicians and skeptical crowds due to the sometimes-long setup times they require. Though you don’t run into this at all with Flashy. Once you’ve practiced it to perfection you can set up and perform Flashy in just a manner of a few seconds. The best part is that the phone itself is unaffected and undamaged for repeat performances.
This particular kit comes with an in depth instructional DVD, as well as gimmicked props.
