Arthur C. Clarke said, Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. The magician demonstrates the truth of that statement using technology of the TimeGate. Effect: Claiming that he uses time travel rather than sleight of hand to perform magic, the magician offers a demonstration. A card is selected, signed by a spectator and placed into the TimeGate (which is cleverly disguised as two jokers). The magician steps a few seconds into the future, removes the card from his future-hands and replaces it in the deck. He returns to the present and a few seconds later (when the future arrives) the card visibly vanishes from his hands and is found face up in the deck. Next, the performer offers to demonstrate that he can also travel into the past and change history. A blue-backed duplicate of the spectators (red-backed) signed card is removed from a blue-back deck. The front and back of the card is freely shown to be blue and the card is placed the table. The spectators signed selection is again placed into the TimeGate and the performer steps into the past. Instantly the signed red back card visibly changes to a blue back card (still signed) and may be immediately given to the spectator. The unsigned card on the table is then shown to have a red back and both cards may be freely examined and even kept by the spectator. TimeGate includes the gimmick which allows the vanish and color change (this gimmick has been around for many years in different forms and will last for hundreds of performances) plus everything needed to create the transposition of back colors except for two decks of Bicycle back cards. The updated handling and a time travel theme create a visually stunning effect. Its available in red-back Bicycle cards but any cards may be used to easily construct a new gimmick to be used other backs, faces and/ or brands of cards. The instructions (DVD) includes the time travel (or TimeGate) presentation which may be easily adapted to a presentation that fits you and your character. Its very well routined and I like the effectAldo Colombini I think it has great visual impactRachel Colombini
