Senses Review

This is a clever prop. Chris has taken a ketchup or salsa cup and with a little gimmick, he has created a prop that can be used for a wide variety of effects.

He has a variety of effects and routines using the cup and coins, bills, and playing cards.

The prop is merely a plastic cup, but you could easily make replacement props if needed. I see these cups all over the place, particularly in hamburger restaurants, Mexican restaurants, and almost anyplace with a salad bar.

The instruction is very good.


The prop is a plastic cup. If you are working a fancy restaurant, this may not be the prop you want to use. Anywhere else, it is a great “organic” prop.


This is such a clever, fresh idea with so many routine possibilities.

Manufacturer's Description:

A souffle cup is an overlooked item at many restaurants but it is something that we find ourselves using all the time. They are fantastic for keeping good things in and bad things out. That is where senses change. What you will learn on this 110 minute long DVD will allow you to take this simple item and perform the impossible. It is an updated rattle box, change box, vanisher and much more.

Senses: Have a spectator take a coin, ring, dice, or whatever they can and put it into the cup and close the lid. You take the cup and shake it. They hear the item, but it slowly starts to fade away until they hear nothing. You then can show the inside of the cup and the item is now gone. You can then bring it back right in their own hands.

Ketchop Cup: A neat update to a chop cup style routine. You have a coin put into the cup with the cap on. You put the cup face down and wave your hand over the cup and instantly the coin jumps to the top of the cup. You can then make it penetrate back into the cup for a visual ending.

TCOC: using one cup you can take a coin and have it penetrate the bottom of the cup, and then through the lid of the cup and even through the bottom of the cup off the spectator's hands.

Quarterly payments: Show an empty cup and one half dollar. Your hands are completely empty. Take the half dollar and drop it into the cup and it instantly turns into two quarters.

Beggars Dream: Show an empty cup and empty hands. Grab an imaginary coin out of the air and drop it into the cup and the coin instantly materializes into a real coin.

Contained: Have a cup with a prediction card inside. Have the spectator pick a card and loose it in the deck. You then show the card that is sealed inside the cup. It is not their card. With a wave of your hand the card sealed inside instantly changes into their card.

This is just a sample of what you can do with the Senses methodology. Start performing right from the box.

"When I saw the demo video for Senses I knew right then and there I had to have this product.  There's actually enough potential with this product that an entire close up show could be constructed around just using this product alone."  - Draven
