FOB is the perfect finale to you're existing card and mentalism routines.

A folded card is isolated inside a clear key FOB that never leaves the spectator's sight. At the conclusion of your favourite card routine the card is cleanly removed from the FOB and it turns out to be their signed selection.
FOB can also be used with bills, billets, photographs, in fact any item that can fit inside the FOB.

FOB may look innocent but in fact this is a precision made gimmick that allows you to ISOLATE THE IMPOSSIBLE

"This is just BEAUTIFUL!"

"That is F*****G AMAZING! I will keep this on me 24/7."
- Joe Monte

"FOB is the perfect open prediction effect. Now you have the ÔkeyÕ to travel back to the future with your spectators."
- Mickael Chatelain

I noticed in one of the reviews that you are required to know the Mercury Card Fold to perform this effect. That's not entirely true for two reasons. The first is that the 36-minute DVD explains how to do the fold in a few ways. So it's not as if the instructions tell you to "perform an alternate-finger shuffle" without telling you what an alternate-finger shuffle is. Second, the DVD shows several ways of performing the necessary fold including right in front of the spectators.

That said, the basic effect is that the spectators are shown a clear plastic key fob. It has a folded playing card inside and stays in plain view at all times. The spectator then freely selects a card from a deck and signs it. Ultimately, the sign card is produced from the fob--which, again, has been in plain view the entire time. (Of course, there's no reason for the card to be in view. The fob could later be produced from a pocket.)

I rate this product with five stars for the following reasons:
1. It's adaptable. Use money, predictions, or almost anything else that can fit inside the fob or be folded to fit.
2. It's sturdy. I have not had the trick long, but I cannot really imagine that the fob will break any time soon.
3. It's easy for novices to get the hang of and perform passable effects, but it's even better for people with more skill.
4. The explanations are clear, both for the easier and for the harder effects.

Granted, there are not many complete routines here, but I've always preferred to get an adaptable tool (say, for example, a stripper deck) and let my imagination take me from there. Copying someone else's routine is OK, I suppose, but I'd much rather have someone thinking "How'd he do that?" than "Wow, that's just like David Blaine did it."

I have other great products by David Penn ( Coinvexed 2.0 & Refraction ) but he's outdone himself with FOB. This is a miracle on your keychain just waiting to happen. It's also versatile.

The trailer shows a signed card trick, but you can use this for mentalism ( billet work ) tricks with bills, etc. It's open to what your imagination can come up with. The DVD teaching is very thorough and the switch is a natural action that fools the eye.

    • Q. I have very little hands. Does this require palming a card?
    • A. You do not have to palm an entire card. There is some sleight of hand and misdirection involved, but if you can hold a deck of cards, you should be able to perform this effect.
