When Vanishing Inc. released the original AmazeBox last year, magicians across the world immediately recognized the countless uses for such a clever utility prop. Since its release, it has been used on some of the largest stages in the world by thousands of magicians, including a number of famous performers.

The AmazeBox, if you haven't heard, is a revolution for switching billets and playing cards. Spectators write, say, their favorite movie on pieces of paper and then drop it into a small cardboard box. You never touch the box; someone comes on stage, opens it up and randomly selects a billet. It is always your force billet.

We received two important pieces of feedback from the professionals that used AmazeBox in their show: they'd like it to contain more billets, and they'd prefer it to be black rather than white.

Not only is the AmazeBox MUCH bigger (it can hold 200 slips of paper instead of just 30), but it is also stronger. Steel plates between the cardboard ensure that this will last MUCH longer and is better suited to travel, and the new matte black color means it will blend in perfectly in any environment. After weeks (yes, really!) of re-designing, we have now made it so it fits back into its packaging, so you can transport it flat wherever you go. The box, when flat, it will fit in any large suitcase.

With the AmazeBox Black you can:

- Switch up to 200 billets
- Perform surrounded
- Travel anywhere
- Have a fail-safe method for switching paper, playing cards, and more!

In a 45 minute, online video, Mark Shortland takes you through everything from assembling the box, to routines and more. If you have a place for the original AmazeBox in your show, the AmazeBox Black will change everything!

"I've performed a Q & A act for over a decade. I've tried so many methods to appear natural and hands free. Bags, boxes, envelopes. This is the most innocent looking method I have ever seen! And completely hands free. I'll take two. When you see something this good, always buy a spare!"
- Paul Draper

"The best gimmicks in magic are the ones who fool you even when you know how they work. When I first saw this I knew what it was and what it did, yet I didn't see it happen! Seamless, elegant and beyond deceptive! Best mentalism gimmick I've seen this year!"
- Spidey

"Mark Shortland has created an ingenious and devious solution to an age-old problem. Natural looking, hands off in operation and simple to use; this might well be exactly what you are looking for."

AmazeBox White (Gimmicks and Online Instructions) by Mark Shortland and Vanishing Inc - Trick

$ 45.00 USD


Once in a while we come across a trick with a method that is as inspiring and whimsical as the effect it creates. "AmazeBox" is the best example of this that we've ever encountered (think of the wow factor of the best Tenyo items...but this one you can use onstage for hundreds of people). It is simply, elegantly this: a box that switches and forces without you ever touching it. No electronics. In fact, the method is most closely related to origami.

Imagine this: you ask everyone in the audience to write down their favorite song (or first kiss, or three-digit number, or whatever you want) on a slip of paper and drop it into the cardboard box at the foot of the stage. The box never goes out of sight and (truly) nobody touches it. During your show, you invite a spectator to approach the box and open it, then reach inside and remove any slip at random. In the act of opening the box, the spectator unknowingly switches all the audience's papers for an entirely different batch of slips you prepared in advance. Use this to force a favorite song or number or celebrity name. THEN, you can use the information written by the spectators later on in the show.

Mentalists will immediately identify the many, many opportunities this little box affords. It's as light as air, can be decorated or repurposed in any way you like, and is quite possibly the only effect we've produced that is easier than easy. The spectator switches the papers. You don't even touch the box.

We're absolutely thrilled with the ingenuity of this incredible little box, and the way the box is designed and folded makes the switch automatic. It's impossible to fail and, we think, impossible to figure out. The fun, toy factor is undeniable, but true professionals will find this piece invaluable. We are grateful to the creative Mark Shortland for working with Vanishing Inc. Magic on this exciting new release.
