David Regal’s Clarity Box is outrageously amazing.

It is a Grand Slam.

With this trick, you can effortlessly produce a spectator’s chosen and signed card from this small, see-through and capped box, which has been sitting on a table from before the spectator even chose a card. What is most amazing about this trick is that the spectator’s see a folded card in the box from the second the box is placed on the table, again, before the card is selected. Not only can you have your spectators believe that you can produce any selected mercury folded card from the box, but you can also cleanly produce a bill or a note containing a prediction. What is clear is that the performer using the Clarity Box has the ability to perform real magic.

With Clarity Box you get a top-notch quality clear acrylic box and top, an excellent instructional DVD, two very clever gimmicks (one is pre-made and one is customizable), and various accessories so you can customize the second gimmick. With the exception of a small sign in the box, it is otherwise completely see-through and unobstructed. The sign inside the box relates to the trick or patter. For example, is you are producing a billet with a prediction, the sign can be a question mark. If you are producing a signed dollar bill, the sign can be a “$” mark. The sign is customizable and is only limited by your imagination.

The box itself is a great looking prop, clear and sturdy. It measures 2 ½ inches wide, 2 inches deep and 4 inches tall. The gimmick works so smoothly and easily that it enables the holder to perform great feats of magic within seconds of possessing it. Although there are some angle issues before the production of the card and the box cannot be handed out, I have not found that to be a problem since no one wants to see the box. The box itself is viewed by the audience as just that “ a box, and nothing else. Importantly, the box can remain out on the table after the production and the angle issues that previously existed are no longer applicable.

The box is small enough to carry around, but it probably best for parlor and table-magic gigs with small audiences. Every time the box produces a card, billet, or bill, the result is different. The reset take a fraction of a second and must be done out of sight of the audience.

As mentioned above, the DVD is excellent and that is largely attributed to David Regal who not only is a great performer, but a great instructor. Regal discusses the history of the card-to-box trick, crediting the various magicians who have improved upon Bruno Hennig’s original creation. At the time of its release, Regal’s version of the card-to-box trick was the greatest step forward in the card-to-box genre since its creation, in my opinion.

On the DVD, Regal explains how to customize, clean and care for the Clarity Box, and why it works. He demonstrates a basic routine and gives an excellent tutorial on how to do a Mercury card fold. For those who cannot or do not want to do the Mercury card fold, Regal explains a simpler method to get the card into shape to be produced. Regal also demonstrates a routine with a signed dollar bill and teaches how to vanish a bill in a handkerchief. After the signed bill routine, Regal teaches and demonstrates a mentalism routine with ESP symbols written on paper. The DVD also comes with various files that you can print to create the gimmicks.

The ad copy is accurate as is the promotional video. This product received well-deserved praise from so many great magicians for a reason.

Clarity Box

Card to canister… with a clear difference.

MY SUPPLY OF CLARITY BOXES HAS SOLD OUT. A QUANTITY WILL ARRIVE AT PENGUIN MAGIC AND HOCUS-POCUS ON OR AROUND SEPT 1. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO ORDER FROM THEM.

When unveiled at The Magic Castle, magicians returned over and over to watch the moment that seemed impossible… when a card that had been isolated within a clear box turned out to be a spectator’s signed selection.

The folded card was never out of sight. It was spilled out of the box and cleanly unfolded, yet it was the signed card.

That, in essence, is The Clarity Box.

The object need not be a card. It can be a signed bill, or a prediction – truly a utility prop.

This twist on Bruno Hennig’s classic card-to-canister effect possesses a clear difference: The object that is to be visibly spilled from the container is in plain view at all times.

The quality of The Clarity Box is exquisite. Custom-fashioned from thick, sparkling acrylic it has the look of a miniature museum showcase.

• The Clarity Box is practical. Its base measures only 2 x 2.5 inches – place it anywhere. And it resets in a second.

• The Clarity Box is customizable. Use supplied design ideas or make up your own.

• The Clarity Box is simple. You will enjoy watching yourself demonstrate it in front of the mirror… and be amazed.

Contains: One custom-made Clarity Box, folded card gimmick, extra blank gimmick (for customization), art for design options, instructional DVD.
