Cerebro Solo by James Cheung - Trick
by James Cheung
Mentalism is about to enter a new age -- the age of Cerebro! The impossible suddenly becomes possible, beliefs will be redefined, and you will leave stunned and fried audiences of laymen and magicians in your wake. Cerebro is truly the next level in mentalism.
Cerebro is a devious and novel spectator cueing system that allows the realization of hitherto pipe dream routines. The spectator-as-mindreader plot takes on a new meaning and is made more direct and cleaner than ever thought possible.
Cerebro is an integrated electronic cueing system for the professional mentalist, the direct culmination of many years of research and testing. With it you can implant thoughts directly into the mind of a spectator. They will literally hear your voice inside their head! It is like having the gift of touch telepathy.
The original Cerebro sent shockwaves throughout the world of mentalism and for good reason. It heralded the advent of one of the first genuinely new principles to be used for cueing. Until now, the technology has been jealously guarded by a lucky few, but due to popular demand, James Cheung has created Cerebro Solo designed specifically for solo performers to covertly cue spectators.
Here are some of the routines possible with Cerebro:
- PK Sounds - Two volunteers are seated at opposite sides of a room. Both are blindfolded and one is asked to place their fingers into their ears so they cannot hear anything. A word is whispered to the other volunteer but both hear the word! A baffling and genuinely new interpretation of PK Touches.
- Thought Jump - A performer fans a deck of cards to show they are all different. The cards are then fairly riffle shuffled and a member of the audience selects a card and remembers it without showing the audience. Another audience member comes on stage and is asked to read the mind of the other spectator. The performer then places a hand on the spectators, acting as a conduit for their thoughts. The second spectator correctly names the card the first spectator chose and is revealed to be 100% correct. This can be done with any information you like, not just cards however pre-show work may be needed. This is the ultimate in direct and impromptu spectator-as-mindreader effects.
- Hypnotic Realities - Any spectator brought on stage can appear to be hypnotized by you. No exceptions and will work every time. Hypnotic Realities is a direct and pure application of the dual reality principle that will leave audiences with the impression that you are a master hypnotist.
- Cerebro can also be used to make any object you hold emit sound. The transducer effectively turns solid or hollow objects into a "speaker." It's very eerie and James Cheung has even used Cerebro to make an empty glass "sing" a prediction!
