The Blurb

Want to blow away your spectators with diabolical mentalism? Welcome to Mental Pen, a diabolical creation of João Miranda and Gustavo Sereno.

Mental Pen allows you to create REAL MAGIC. The kind of magic that gets into their minds and leaves them totally stunned.

With Mental Pen, what the spectator marks with a Sharpie, matches the magician’s prediction! The routines possible are endless.

It can be performed with any book, magazine, napkin, receipt or even a blank piece of paper, allowing the magician to perform a variety of different routines.

KEEP IN MIND:

– The spectator holds the pen the entire time
– No switches
– The “secret” is activated by the spectator himself!
– Endless routines are possible, either for close-up or stage
– You can use the pen as a regular Sharpie
– Diabolical gimmick makes the effect super easy to perform

Comes complete with Sharpie and all gimmicks needed.

**Mental Pen is based on the idea and gimmick from Andreas Sebring’s Metal Writer.

Jheff's Guide

WHAT IT IS:
Gimmick with routine(s) included

HOW ACCURATE OR COMPLETE THE BLURB IS:
It doesn’t mention that is a new technological upgrade of a very old idea that dates back to the 20s.  It’s mentioned in Corinda as well as many other places.  Otherwise, it’s as complete as possible without giving away the method.

WHAT’S NOT INCLUDED THAT YOU NEED OR NEED TO KNOW:
This is a utility gimmick and, though five very strong and different routines are discussed, many more are possible.  Also, the Sharpie can easily be replaced with a normal one after about forty performances.  It takes seconds and a little work.  The instructional video shows you how to do that.

JHEFF’S JUDGMENT:
This is certainly not a revolutionary gimmick as it doesn’t do something new, but it is certainly a worthy, practical, and clever upgrade to an already established idea that mentalists currently use.  Based on that, I know that if you buy this, you will probably use it and definitely get your money’s worth out of it.  So, for that, I definitely recommend it, especially to those, like me, who love getting and thinking about new utility gimmicks.
