    SEVEN Mind-Altering Routines For Your iPhone


      From the best-selling creator of VOX and Synergy, David Jonathan is back with more powerful mentalism using the most common and relatable object in the world: your phone. Black Mirror Project has been in development for over a year and features SEVEN mind melting effects that are a must have for any mentalist!

      Book Test: A stunning rendition using the Books app. You hand them the phone, they choose a book, swipe to a random page and remember a word they see. They can even hand the phone to a friend who swipes to another page and also remembers a word. Without ever retrieving the phone and with nothing spoken or written down, you instantly reveal the thought of words! It’s a stunning effect that always uses the genuine pages in the Books app!

      Lotto: Six lotto numbers are freely named, which perfectly match the winning numbers on a photo of a lotto ticket in your phone’s photo gallery! This uses a clever combination of methods that make this impossible miracle a reality! A bonus variation is also included that adds a jaw-dropping, hilarious kicker ending to the routine.

      Word Peek: A test conditions, digital equivalent of a center tear with a locked phone. You will love this sneaky, bold peek!

      Photo Prediction: Predict a thought of object or animal in your photo gallery, or even as your wallpaper, without ever touching the phone! Multiple variations are included with a variety of methods.

      Birthday Gift: An item is freely chosen from a list of 30 birthday gift ideas. In your gallery is an album titled “Your Gift” with just one photo inside, and it’s of the gift they chose! Not only that, the date that photo was taken astoundingly happens to be their birthday!

      Maps: A free choice of any city is revealed to have been predicted in Google Maps in a hands-off manner.

      Vacation: A destination is chosen from a list of the Top 20 travel hotspots across the world and any date is named for when they would like to go. Impossibly, you knew exactly what they would choose as earlier you had placed a photo in your gallery that is undeniable proof they would pick that location! You show it’s a generic photo of a beach – which seemingly could have fit ANY of the destinations from the list. However, the geo-tag of the photo proves it really was taken at their chosen location, and if that wasn’t enough, the date of the photo matches the date they had named! (This effect requires iOS 17 or later).
