Ignition by Chris Smith (DVD + Gimmick)

Two things you always have in your pocket (keys and money) come together for an explosive miracle. Key through cell phone. Key through hand. Key through table. Rick Lax will show you how. Voted one of the top 3 tricks of 2012 by the Magic Cafe in the Tricks and Effects Forum.

Ignition is a key that can penetrate any borrowed object – a bill, a sugar packet, even a spectator’s sleeve. Yet, when you rip the key out, there’s no hole, no rip and no damage! You can pass the key and the borrowed object IMMEDIATELY for examination – there’s only one key. They won’t find anything because Ignition is a REAL CAR KEY that can withstand the closest inspection – even by a locksmith!

Ignition is always on you. When not in use, it travels inconspicuously on your key chain. But, when you’re ready to perform, there’s no fumbling – just detach it from its quick release carabiner (included) and you’re set to perform.

The handling is so easy, anyone can learn it in minutes. There’s even a quick start method that will get you performing immediately.

Ignition can be performed anywhere – surrounded. It’s good for table hoppers, magicians’ on-the-go, and those spur of the moment situations when someone asks to ‘see something’.

Ignition comes with an instructional DVD that teaches 3 different routines:

• Key through bill
• Key through sugar packet
• Key through shirt

About Penguin Magic

Penguin Magic is located in Las Vegas, Nevada. They sell magic tricks, DVDs, videos, and performance supplies to magicians of all skill levels throughout the world.

What started out as an unfair dismissal turned into a blessing in disguise. Maxwell Murphy and Acar Altinsel started Penguin Magic in June 2002. They chose a penguin as their mascot because it looks like this bird was born with a tuxedo on so it is always ready to perform… hence the slogan “Born to perform” and Penguin Magic is born. It started out as a little “warehouse” (actually it was an apartment on top of a university) with boxes of merchandise from floor to ceiling. At first delivery trucks had to turn around in the parking lot but soon that turned into warehouses being opened in Las Vegas, London, and Sacramento, delivering magic products to 169 countries world-wide.

This is their passion. They do things a little differently than other magic stores. They have a vision of the perfect place to learn to be a magician, and work every day to bring that vision to life. They spend a lot more time in the studio producing instructional videos, and in the field testing new products.

“We share your excitement about magic, we love to perform, and we want to see your talent fostered. We have witnessed firsthand the kind of personal development that people of all ages experience through magic and performance. This kind of growth gives meaning to the work that we do. Thinking about all of the proud smiles makes it fun to come to work each morning.”

“Magic is different than other hobbies and even other performance arts. Magic has a very strong and wonderful community aspect to it. We’re proud to be a part of that community, and we welcome you and look forward to sharing our love of magic with you. “

“Magic is a powerful tool for connecting people and stimulating growth and development”. Penguin Magic is privileged to be a part of The Penguin Foundation.
