Manufacturer's Write Up:
In the world of physics, there are discoveries being made daily that are going to shape the future of humanity. Most of these wondrous discoveries we cannot see or feel. That is, until Tom Elderfield punching holes in playing cards and instantly moving them through the woven fibers right in front of you.
Space Time is Tom's latest marvel, where he places an open hole into a playing card, then the hole jumps around the card as if he's warping the fabric of space time itself. Unlike previous hole plots, you can clearly show both sides of the card between each phase. With a wave, it will seem as if you instantly healed those voids in the card as if you turned back the clock, restoring the card to pristine condition.
Test the boundaries of this unexplainable physical paradox as you shock your spectators with Space Time by Tom Elderfield.

How are the production values: Great, HD, multiple camera angles and everything you'd expect from Murphy's Magic
Is it well made: Yes, so glad I don't have to make this myself
Is it well taught: Chris Oberle runs over everything you need to know. He gives you both studio and live performances and very informative studio explanations.
My thoughts (what I personally liked/disliked):
Storage? Does it "pack flat?" Gimmick is a single card
Does it "play big?" you're warping the fabric of time! Of course this plays big. This is a real brain fryer.
How practical is this in the real world? (can it really be done?) I suppose there could be some angle issues and perhaps some equivocate comes in play depending on your routine, but there are no performance or venue limitations.
How original is this idea? I first remember seeing this effect as Hollow by Menny Lindenfeld
Overall score: 9/10
