DVD - Platt Pad (Gimmick and DVD) by Brian Platt
Platt Pad - An original concept from Brian and Mike Platt.
The Platt Pad gives you the power to perform mentalism and magic that is so clean, so pure, there is absolutely nowhere for your spectators' minds to go. If you could really make accurate predictions, it would look exactly like this. Here are just a handful of squeaky clean effects possible with the Platt Pad.
This is the 8 Card Brainwave you've always dreamed of - with a clean ending. The performer places eight cards face down in a row on the table and writes down a bold prediction for all to see. He predicts that the spectator will pick the one card that is different from all the rest. The spectator freely chooses one of the eight cards (if you'd like, he can even sign his name on the back) and it's placed to the side in full view. The seven cards that were not selected are flipped over to reveal they have a scary green Mr. Yuk sticker on the face of them. The chosen card, as predicted, is the odd card out - it's the only one with a yellow smiley face sticker on the face. The cards are all left on the table for immediate examination! This not only satisfies the toughest of skeptics but it also leaves the spectator with a very pretty and stunning picture as she sees, plain as day, the stark contrast between her chosen card and the seven others. Brian teaches numerous variations including an identical version of the Nick Trost original using 8 different playing cards. The difference? Here, all of the cards can be fairly (and yes, instantly) flipped over and left out for examination. Endless possibilities...
"I cannot remember the last time I opened a new magic item and just played with it over and over again. I think this will become a standard mentalism tool." - David Regal
"This is one of the most beautifully created utility devices I have ever seen. It's mechanism is so diabolical it reminds me of something Q would be training James Bond to use...All I kept saying was "WOW" when I laid my eyes upon the secret." - Gary Kosnitzky
"The Platt Pad represents old world craftsmanship combined with modern mentalism! When I first opened the package I couldn't believe how well thought out and well built this device is. At first it looks just like a common pad, but Man, there is so much more! Every bit of the apparatus looks and works flawlessly. Basically, it is a switching device. But what a device! I love it! I love how it is made, how it works and what you can do with it. When I watched the video it was apparent how good this plays and how brilliant the moves are. The DVD included gives you all types of tips and ideas, but I can see how many will come up with even more. This is not something you want to pass by. This is good ... Real Good!" - Richard Osterlind
