Icon by Lloyd Barnes
His follow-up from bestseller Diffuse is ICON, fusing magic with technology to create an optical gem that you carry on you at all times.
Specializing in super-slow visuals and devastatingly-easy methods, Lloyd looks for that unique moment in a trick where you can deliberately pause the effect, so you can SEE the magic as it happens.
ICON allows you to put a torn corner from a signed card on top of your phone screen. A wave of your hand and the corner sinks through the glass and hides under your apps.
A brief shake and the corner goes through the phone, out the back and falls into the spectators awaiting hands.
- Use a signed card.
- iPhone (5 or higher) or Android. (4.5" - 6" screen size) (must be able to natively display videos in 1.77 aspect ratio)
- No apps...We give you everything you need.
- Easy to do.

SummaryGimmick simply does not work. Had a HTC One when this came out (a fairly common phone) and it wasn't compatible. Lloyd said he was putting out an update - said update never happened...
SummaryThe only problem is that the gimmick can get outdated and that its made for iphones. I suggest android users not to get this unless you have an Samsung. But the trick its self is cool.
SummaryThe basic handling and construction of the trick is fine...but, the fact is that specifically for iPhones, the "gimmick" is already out of date. It probably wouldn't take much time to recreate with the new iOS, which is really what they ought to do for this one. I can't speak for Androids, but if you have an iPhone, I'd stay away.
SummaryIt's good, it's strong, it's simple. I love the idea. I would have liked it more if Lloyd taught how to customize it a little bit.
SummaryThis is the first item i bought from Ellusionist. Initially i had some problem with the trick as i'm from asian country so i wrote in to them, as promised, the reply reached me within 24 hours and solved my problems i had with this trick. thumbs up to Ellusionist.com.
SummaryFor the price, this is a great change of pace for any performer. Getting your phone to perform the impossible with a bit of good timing and you can really wow your spectators. Add this to your arsenal, it hits hard.
No app, no wallpaper.
But only can use your phone
Lloyd explains it really well.
Super easy to do.
You need a iphone 5 or 6 to do
(Ellusionist Note - Also works on Android Devices)
SummaryI just bought this trick and I have to say it's amazing. The idea is amazing and it's super easy to do. It does in fact work on most phones so don't worry about that. I personally feel that the trick is super cheap as well. It's only 7$! I would honestly pay about 25 for this. I really do think it's that good.
SummaryI was super curious to see the method.
I am quite pleased with my purchase, the method will fool people even though it is simple, it will be with you every time you have your phone with you. I have performed it and it looks like pure magic.
It is pretty easy to tweak a little to altar the trick which is a nice addition! He does not teach this how ever.
SummaryWow, what a fantastic idea. I downloaded the product and started performing it with just a little bit of practice.
If you are computer savvy, you can 'customize' the effect a little.
This will be a great visual treat after my performance of Angle Zero!
