NEW Upon Request: When you purchase this, we will also give you a link to a video tutorial on how to use the key (in addition to the written instructions which come with the effect)!
Self bending metal is the next evolutionary step in PK Magic. If traditional metal-bending was an Ape, Shift: Self Bending Key would be Modern Man with an iPhone 7 and a Jet Pack.
Shift is the epitome of 'Packs Small, Plays Big.'
You can now perform the impossible action of bending a a key INSIDE your SPECTATOR'S HAND, in plain view, for the world to witness every surreal moment.
The key itself has been manufactured from a patented alloy, similar to the Self Bending Fork, and will stay in its 'set' condition, even hanging on your key chain - so you're ready to perform at a moment's notice.
Shift: Self Bending Key activates it's bending movements using ONLY your spectator's body heat. You can manipulate the molecules of metal without touching the key as is slowly bends in open view.
In a breakthrough of technology, Shift: Self Bending Key is the lowest priced self bending metal effect in history. Not to mention the ONLY engineered the gimmick to stay straight in room temperature UNTIL you place it inside the spectator's hands.
Shift will remain unbent, unnoticed, and unassuming until the moment you place it into the spectator's hands. From that moment on, your work is done and the real phenomenon begins.
You now have the tool for a surreal performance. A physical impossibility is now within your reach.
"People are truly going to lose their minds over this. A key is INCREDIBLY practical." - Joel Bauer, Top Pro
"I thought the self bending fork was off the chain, the key is so much better." - Anthony Brown, Salem NJ
"Please let me perform this before anyone else!." - Eric Ross Top Pro
IMPORTANT: This is NOT an opening effect. If you perform this as your first trick, make it your ONLY trick, because NOTHING can follow Shift. Your spectators will look at you through new eyes, so why go perform a card trick after something like this? Shift is your "coup de grace" effect. No effect is more, fair, unbelievable or convincing.

This is Ellusionist's new "star" product, for now. I like it because it is more usable than the fork. I look for effects that people can relate to. So the key was a good idea. But for the life of me, I can't get it totally flat. It's mostly flat using what they suggest in the instructions, but I'm leary of doing this in public unless it looks just like a regular key.
