A card is selected and remembered. A lighter is borrowed. Introduce your phone, your digital camera, your FLIP HD, or your camcorder. Have the spectator document what is about to happen. So what happens? Imagine being able to light a borrowed lighter, and cause the FLAME itself to form the shape of their chosen card! Imagination? NO. THIS IS ILLUMINATE.
Illuminate takes card revelations to a whole new level, as the image of their card forms within the flame of the lighter you just borrowed. Want to document the image? Have the spectator snap a picture! Then offer to send it to them so they have something to have with them always! Illuminate is visual, practical, fun and easy to do!
"Try for a moment to realize its potential, and you will then want one!"
- Alain Nu, "The Man Who Knows"
"Mike has a winning combination of high tech and high touch magic. Illuminate is a magical mash up of the primal element of fire, a modern phone-cam, and playing cards."
- Jeff McBride, Creator of the Mystery School
"Mike Hankins has created a self working, offbeat illusion that anyone can master in minutes. Highly recommended."
- Eric Jones
