Manufacturer's Write Up:
ONE OF THE WORLD'S MOST INGENIOUS MIND-READING SECRETS PERFECTED! by Ali Nouira. Based on Marc Salem's BROTHER OF ALL DUPLICATIONS PRINCIPLE
You instantly know what she secretly wrote on a blank business card...while the face-down card is covered by her hand -- or a bunch of hands -- or even a book!
- THE PERFECT PROPS
- THE PERFECT PRESENTATION
- THE PERFECT SECRET
- THE PERFECT EVERYTHING!
Watch the Demo Now: Seriously. When you see the STEAM 2.0 method, you'll need a moment of astonished silence to take in the sheer steamy beauty of the ingenious secret.
YOU NEVER HAVE TO TOUCH OR EVEN SEE THE CARD...YET YOU ALWAYS KNOW EXACTLY WHAT SHE HAS DRAWN!
You can even turn your back while the spectator writes her secret word and covers it with her hand (and whatever else she wants to cover it with). You can even have a spectator cover your eyes with her hands. You can even be in a different room and direct her over the phone. And yet, when you come back into the room, you can still discover her secret word or drawing!
ENOUGH SECRET STUFF FOR 100 PERFORMANCES
Plus! A Bonus set of 50 STEAM 2.0 bill gaffs for an out-of-your-wallet "money hustle" presentation. And YES! You even get Two (2) Fortune Telling Fish for the Steamed Red Herring presentation.
* REFILL PACKS WILL BE AVAILABLE IN THE NEAR FUTURE.
STEAM 2.0 THE PERFECT SECRET FOR THE PERFECT STEAM.

· Everything can be examined.
How are the production values: Very similar to other PH products. It's shot well with a good camera and sound. It's basically Bro Gilbert teaching you from a living room environment (in Canada).
Is it well made: PH Presents have spent a lot of time finding the absolute perfect materials to use for this effect.
Is it well taught: Bro Gilbert gives you multiple ways to use the gimmick, most of the video is alternate handlings from the original. Bro always explains the effect first to the camera and then a live performance follows.
My thoughts (what I personally liked/disliked): I loved that everything you needed was included - even the glue stick. I wish more creators thought this in-depth.
Storage? Does it "pack flat?" This is the quintessential of "packs flat & plays big" all you need to carry is some small paper products and a pen
Difficulty / Skill level required: The actual effect is so easy, it's basically self working
How much arts and crafts are involved? very little
How practical is this in the real world? (can it really be done?) Not only can it be done, it can be done RIGHT AWAY! Your angles are minimal and your peek is so organic. This is going to fit in seamlessly with any effect you have where the spectator needs to write something down.
Overall score: let's toss out the traditional score of 1-10 and make this something that we all can appreciate and understand.
