-Chad Long

It's time to bring your magic kicking and screaming into the 21st century.

MiniBook Pro is the most commercial trick in a generation.

Here's why:
  • Techy magic
  • Cool and relevant
  • Eye-popping visual production
  • Built-in funny presentation
  • Easy to do - no difficult sleights
  • HUGE surprise finish
  • Devastatingly strong reactions - guaranteed
  • Spectator keeps a souvenir of the magic moment

You start your act with the super-visual production of a mini laptop, then have some fun with the tiny computer, saying it can the find the spectator's card - but it fails. When your spectator looks back at the MiniBook Pro their brain melts as they realize that it has impossibly morphed into their signed card! A mind-blowing finish that creates screams, laughter and astonishment. Then you get to freeze the magic moment by giving them an impossible souvenir. This is the kind of magic that your spectators will talk about for years!

"I love this trick! I will burn your house down if you don't immediately send me one."
-Piff the Magic Dragon

"Great visual opener, fun interactive presentation and killer ending - what more could any performer want?!"
-Bill Abbott

What tricks can you think of where an object transforms in the spectator's own hands without them realizing? It's ok, I'll me either.

When they slowly realize what's happened it's a moment of pure surprise and delight.

"Ohhhh wait..f*ck you. I didn't see that coming tbh. You took two plots I love and made an incredibly fun routine. Love it!"
-Calen Morelli

"This routine is so smart. It's really everything you could possibly want from a close up effect."
-Ben Seidman


The king of digital magic, Marc Kerstein has also created a brilliant solution for us to allow you to pull the laptop from the spectator's own phone! You borrow any smart phone and ask the spectator to visit a website, you take the phone from them and pull the laptop from their phone. They will never discover the secret as it automatically cleans itself up.

"It is delightful to watch their expressions when one thing, in their heads, transforms into something else. This trick is a true reality twister."
-Tom Stone

"Starts as a trendy gag and flips into a hard hitting miracle that's hiding in plain sight on the palm of their hand. Great thinking!"
-Apollo Robbins
