From the extremely mental mind of James Biss, creator of the most popular Impression device on the planet, comes a new revolution in Mentalism methodology. Remote Control Change Packs were first introduced in his world-wide bestselling book Messing With Minds (now out of print) to achieve astonishing Newspaper Predictions. They’re further explored in his acclaimed second work, Mind Blowing, for ingenious Q & A effects and impossible collective design duplications. Now after years of secret use on stage and television by some of the hottest names in Mentalism, Remote Control Change Packs are finally available for purchase, ready to go, for mentalists and magicians everywhere!
The Remote Control Switch Packs have a number of advantages over predecessors such as Teleport Envelopes and the like. Their tear strip is truly the only way the envelopes can easily be opened once sealed – but this also automatically opens up the secret compartment! This means that you can have a spectator open the envelope themselves without any handling on your part. They are certain to open the proper section and you get to maintain a hands-off handling. They are truly remote control switching devices!
The construction is similar to the classic double envelope magicians and mentalists have used for decades (See Tarbell Course In Magic, Vol. 5, from the 1920’s, for example) but with a few interesting modifications. These types of envelopes were popularized again by the late great Ted Lesley and his Teleport Envelope (See Paramiracles). Many mentalists have used the Teleports for some time, but their shortcomings are frustrating in regular use. Plus they aren’t truly “hands off” and the rubber cement is awkward in real world use. Remote Control Change Packs on the other hand are made of durable poly plastic and they travel well and look like innocent shipping envelopes. Once sealed, they can only be opened with the convenient tear strip and this secretly does all the work for you. They’re super fast and simple to load off stage without any of the hassles of classic envelope methods.
Your Remote Control Change Packs ship in a unique re-sealable pouch, with a detailed 14 Page manuscript written in the style which fans of James Biss will enjoy and new readers will discover with delight.

Present a career building Q & A act. Or draw pictures from the audience’s minds under impossible test conditions. Make torn pages re-appear. And much, much more.
