After you’ve gimmicked your objects, make sure that you remember which number stands for which object (you might want to write it down). If you choose to use the same objects as we described, have them in the following order:
Wallet - Blue Chip (2 vibrates)
Pack of gum - Black Chip (3 vibrates)
Tissue paper - Red chip (4 vibrates)
Also, you will need to write down your prediction on a piece of paper. Write something along the lines of: “I predict that the wallet will be in the right pocket, the tissue paper in the left pocket and the packet of gum in the back pocket.”
Explanation: Start by introducing our prediction, and giving it to a spectator of your choice. Invite them to join you on stage and explain that the piece of paper you just gave them contains information about the near future.
Take out your three objects and set them on the table in any order you wish. If you want you can introduce them as things you carry around every day. You can also customize the objects to fit your personality and your presentation. Imagination is the limit. Make sure that after you set the objects on the table you wait at least 20 seconds so the system can calibrate itself. Walk away from the table and face the audience. At this point, you could put a blindfold on if you want to make the effect even more impossible. Invite your spectator to pick up any object. You will obviously know which one they chose, and as soon as you do, guide them to place it in the correct pocket (suiting your prediction). Then ask them to pick up a second object, and repeat the same action. The same goes to the third object. Even though you are telling them in which pocket to place the objects, try to make it sound spontaneous and random. You can do that by saying: “Do you have an object in your hand? Great! We’ll put it, let’s say, in your right pocket this time.” Changing your tone slightly will help to project the feeling that you don’t care which pocket it goes to (even though you actually care a lot).
For the climax of the routine ask the spectator to take out the prediction and read it out loud. After they read it, you can reveal how, pocket by pocket, the prediction was right.
2. The Classic Three Chip Hiding Game
The effect: The magician gives to one volunteer three poker chips and asks him to place one in his right pocket, one in his left pocket and one inside his hand and behind his back so the magician couldn't see anything. The Volunteer truly has free choice. The magicians then reveals the chips with more information each time. First, He knows which color chip is behind the back. Then, the second chip is revealed alongside which hand holds it. The last chip is tossed in a head-or-tails fashion and the performer can tell which hand holds it, and which side is facing up. This can all be done while the magician stands up to 10 meters (30 feet) away from the volunteer!
Explanation: Give the chips to your spectator and turn around. Tell them to place one chip in each pocket: One in the left, one in the right in one in the back. Now you will need to wait about 20 seconds so the system can calibrate. Use this time to present the effect. This routine can be performed as a demonstration of intuition, a mind reading routine, a lie detector or just pure luck. Turn your back to them and ask them to take out one of the chips and put it behind their back. Once they will take out one of the chips the receiver will let you know which one it is, as we explained earlier. Now, depending on how you choose to present the effect, reveal the colour of the chip. tell them to set the chip on a table (or any flat surface), or to simply give it back to you. This is important, because if you will not take the chip it will keep on transmitting, and you want to continue to the next one.
For the next revelation, tell them that you will make this even harder for yourself. Ask them to choose one on the chip and place it in one hand behind their back. Now you will know which color chip it is. Wait for a few seconds until the chip stops transmitting its identity, and ask them to hold out their right hand. If the chip is in the right hand you will know it, tell them It’s there and what color it is. If it’s not in their right hand, ask them to hold out their left hand and tell them it’s there, and also, the color of the chip. retrieve the chip and put it on a flat surface, or in your pocket.
Tell them the last one could be quite easy, but you are going to take this one step further. You are going to play a game of chance. Ask them to flip the chip and peek at the result. You will be able to tell them whether the chip landed on the number side or the shape (as explained in the video instructions). You can repeat this once or twice, but don’t over-do it.
If you want to make the last phase even more entertaining, you can bet them the amount written on the chip, if you wont guess it correctly. We don’t recommend gmabling with your audience or gambling at all for that manner, if you choose to do so, do it at your own risk.
The effect: Three volunteers each choose a chip at random. They are seated and are asked to switch the chips in between them. The performer then reveals who has which chip. Then he asks them what was the color they originally chose, and they find out the chairs had the original color painted on them the entire time.
Preparation: Three chairs are set on stage. Paint the bottom of each chair with one of the colours. One blue, one red and one black. Alternatively, if you happen to use the chairs of the venue you are performing at, and you don’t want your host getting mad at you, you can put a big sticker underneath the chair, or on its back. Organize the chairs in this order: Blue, Black and red. Have the 3 Super Chips placed flat on a table nearby.
Explanation: You ask the first volunteer to pick one poker chip from 3 optional colors (without anyone noticing) and to place it in his pocket, you feel by vibrate immediately which color chip the first volunteer picked up and the same with the second & third volunteer.
While the volunteers take their chosen poker chip one by one, you ask them to sit down by the order of the chip color that they chose. Meaning, the person who picked the Blue chip will sit down on the first chair from the left, the person who picked the black chip will sit on the middle chair and the person who picked the Red chip will sit on the right side chair (basically each volunteer seats in the correct color)
When all three have one poker chip each, you ask the volunteers to switch their poker chip with one of the other two so that they all have a different poker chip at the end (it is very important that all three will switch).
Now you ask the first volunteer to take his chosen poker chip out of his pocket secretly without anyone seeing (you ask this so you could know which color chip this volunteer is holding right now) and when you feel his color you also know what the other two volunteers have.
Because you know what the first color chip your volunteers have (before they switched), You have now 2 outcomes (2 options):
A. If the first volunteer have the Black poker chip the second volunteer has the Red poker chip and the third volunteer has the Blue poker chip
B. If the first volunteer has the Red poker chip the second volunteer has the Blue poker chip and the third volunteer has the Black poker chip
