Telematic Prediction Box
By Professor Spellbinder
In Al Mann's Pandora's Box manuscript, he writes of
a Telematic Prediction box put out by a Dr.
"B" in 1958. I found flaws with the original box and
worked them out in this variation. The article also describes how
to make a special mentalists' gimmick and other uses for it.
Effect: Show your business card,
front and back. Have a spectator write his name across the back
of the card, but leaving space for you to write your predictions.
Then you take the card and write predictions on the back of the
card in the space left by the spectator.
Have the box unlocked by the spectator (who can handle the box
freely). The spectators see you place the signed card inside the
box, and relock the box.
Various people in the audience are asked to call out the last
four digits of a phone number (for example), the name of a city,
a four letter word, the name of a playing card, or anything else
that you choose.
The spectator unlocks the box, removes the card and verifies
that their signature is still on the back of the card. Then they
read your highly accurate predictions aloud. Take your applause
