The Insight system includes a miniature wrist-worn reader and a deck of 52 electronic playing cards.
Crafted with the smallest RFID reader available, Insight can detect playing cards at a distance of up to 4.5" away. Within seconds, a simple vibration cue will tell you the suit and value of the selection.
The basic effect
The performer hands the deck to a volunteer and invites her to remove her favorite card, then place the rest of the deck aside. Without touching the volunteer or the deck, the performer reveals the chosen card.
An almost infinite variety of effects can be performed - you are limited only by your imagination.
The reader features wireless transmission and on-board vibration cuing. At only 77x33mm, it's incredibly small. It's size allows you to detect cards and tags with a simple gesture. The battery will last for over 10 hours on a single charge and is both rechargeable and replaceable.
The Insight deck (Phoenix edition) is the very first electronic deck to be designed from the ground-up specifically for magicians. The chips and antenna are incorporated into the cards during the manufacturing process in order to ensure that each card is perfectly thin and flat. The deck can be shuffled and handled in the same way as an ordinary deck.
iPhone users can unlock the wireless features of their device by purchasing the Insight app available from the App Store. This allows for wireless cuing, reprogramming, and more!
