Product Description

Your friend holds a pen on her open palm as you hold a clear "Credit Card Protector" just above the pen.

You show a bizarre optical illuzion...and give the plastic lens a twist. The center of the pen suddenly becomes TRANSPARENT...and then completely INVISIBLE! She can even see right through her spread fingers where the center of the pen was a moment ago! Another twist of the lens and the missing pen center suddenly becomes VISIBLE AGAIN!

BUT THAT'S JSUT THE WARM UP! You then slowly twist the lens again...and in full view the center of the pen visibly DISTORTS...then MELTS into a WEIRD TWISTED MESS!! But this time the optical illusion is REAL...and the weird twisted shape is now a PERMANENT part of the pen...You can even let your friend keep the deformed pen as a souvenir. And yes, it still writes!

THERE'S NO EXPLANATION!...except that the lens is not a thing you'd want near any of your favorite body parts.

No Switches or Extra Pieces

All you need is the speical patented Lubor's Lens and a normal pen (which you can prepare in a few seconds).

Lubor’s Lens is a DVD teaching 3 effects with a fascinating prop that allows you to make objects seem to disappear and morph while in the spectator’s hands. The included prop, created by the inventive Lubor Fiedler, is a semi transparent plastic card that allows for astonishing visual illusions. In the basic effect a pen is placed in the spectator’s hand. The performer covers the middle of the pen with the lens, which remains visible to the spectator. The middle of a pen then vanishes. It returns, and then permanently twists in reality, all without the magician touching the pen. The twisted pen is examinable and can be left with the spectator. If the illusion of the pen’s middle vanishing were the only effect, it would probably only get mild reactions. But the fact that the pen, in reality, permanently changes takes this from optical illusion to strong magic. The routine (as always) is what makes the performance powerful, not just the prop itself.

This one's a bit of a no-brainer. For $15 you get a super cool prop, a DVD and a bunch of really cool effects.


If you haven't seen the Lubor's Lens in action, you need to check out the video trailer. It's a bizarre optical illusion that's just cool even if you don't do any magic with it. Add to that the fact that you can carry it in your wallet and it has a reasonable explanation for its existence, and you've got a beautiful "piece of strange" that you can do anytime, anywhere.


The prop is well made and very inexpensive. You can have fun with it without having to bring any extra props with you. However, if you want to do the pen twisting illusion, you just have to carry around a pen that you've altered in advance. The DVD teaches you very clearly how to create the pen. There are other effects taught as well, using matches and a straw. Just fiddling around with the lens can give you some killer ideas.


There's no reason not to have this in your wallet . . . oh... [Read More]
