The smartphone is undoubtedly one of the foremost technological advances of the past decade. It allows us to do things that just a generation ago would have us accused of actual sorcery. We can find out what the weather’s like in Nairobi; we can watch a video of our favourite magical performances; we can we can manipulate the contents of the screen by simply touching them!
All of these things can justly be described as magical. But, for practicing magicians, a mobile phone can serve another purpose. It can form a wonderfully useful prop in a series of different magical tricks and illusions. On these pages, you’ll find all of our phone-related products.
These include ‘My Pet Boris’, the utterly terrifying iPhone app that allows you to plant a spider onto the back of someone’s hand while you’re ‘demonstrating’ the app for them – with amusing results. Or perhaps you’d instead prefer the ‘ringtone’ trick, which can be used on any mobile phone at all – it can temporarily change a person’s ringtone to whatever song you like – even one that they name! It’s guaranteed to stupefy your audience. These tricks, along with a whole host of others, are available on these pages.
So, if you’d like to get the best out of the humble smartphone, introduce it into your magical act, with the help of the tricks listed here.
