Foreword and description by Mark Thorold:

Years ago I bought an electronic item
from Ian titled ‘Mental Visions’ (It was later put out by Magicbox in a updated
guise). I can honestly say it was, and still is an item I use regularly.

upgraded to a smaller sensor on the unit and offered to replace it for me free
of charge, I never took him up on the offer because I was using it so
frequently and it had such an impact that I didn’t want to have it out of my
hands for even a week. It has served me superbly, never failed and is built to
withstand all sorts.

When Ian messaged me to say he had a
new item he was working on and explained what it was I was sold immediately.

month on and I’m the super proud owner of ESP Elite (The first unit made)
On receipt of the parcel I more or less
ripped it open , I was that eager to see. I’m seldom excited about new items
but knew this was going to be delightful. The unit and accompanying bits and
pieces come housed in an aluminium case to protect the equipment. On opening it
I took a moment to look at the overall package. It looks exquisite and rivals
some effects that are put out at 4 or 5 times the price.

Everything is seated
in dark grey foam to sit snug in the case and is laid out well.
The instructions are clear, easy to
read and simple to understand.
The unit itself is visually appealing
with an old but not too weathered look to it. A rich stained wooden case, glass
topped with five ESP symbols laid out on it. To compliment it a gold, all Seeing
Eye coin in a protective case.

I’ll not go into details on the electronics
internally but will say that I know Ian is thorough in his builds, quality of
materials used, testing, retesting and the aesthetics of his work
(Beautiful and bomb proof is my description) .
The unit will signal solid clear
transmissions to a discreet body worn receiver. Initially Ian told me he had
tested it to 37 feet, which is plenty. However I ventured out with my brother
and a rangefinder and can say that we achieved 103 yards (309 feet) and had to
stop there due to field boundaries.

For a chap who is self-taught in the
electronics arena it has to be said that Ian has excelled with this item.

I’m more than delighted with it. I’ve given myself a headache running through all the possibilities for its use. It’s
an affordable item (I’d personally say Ian is selling himself short), built to
last and looks the business. It has my thorough recommendations.

Ian Maltby has produced a custom prop for mentalism that you will love. Each unit is made to order. It uses electronics to cue the performer of spectators selection. The board has a vintage look.

Spectator selects one of several ESP symbols by placing a collectible looking coin on the board. The performer is alerted electronically even though he is out of sight.

A lot of possibilities could be used for reveal. The board has such a unique look, story-tellers will have fun describing how this came into their possession.

Mr.Maltby gets my highest recommendation for creating a beautiful, sturdy magic prop. I am looking forward to whatever new effect he may come up with in the future. You will not be disappointed.

    Ian Maltby has created the perfect device when you are looking for push button mentalism that looks authentic, works consistently and doesn’t cost a fortune. It comes with a great routine and I love the miscall idea, that makes it seem all the more real.
    The wooden box looks like a display case in a musty old museum and with the right performance you’re sure to cause to some hairs to rise. Even the gold coin that is used to make the choices plays the part and is heavy and solid in a protective case. The device is very responsive with a range of well over 30 feet. It is all neatly packaged in a protective case so you protect your investment and look good while doing it.
    These have been created in a limited edition of just 10 units so now might be the time to stampede over to Paul McCaig’s website where you can purchase it – you’ll find other cool treasures there too! Paul McCaig is the creator of the wonderful Mind’s Eye Box here.
    Basic Routine: The performer introduces an ESP board and a coin depicting the all seeing eye. The spectator is asked to cast their eyes over the ESP symbols on the board. The performer then explains he will be blindfolded and be several feet away from the spectator with his back turned, the spectator Is asked to place the coin on any symbol of their choice,(this is a totally free choice).
    Let’s say for example the spectator selects the square. The performer asks if a symbol has been selected, when the spectator replies yes the performer then explains that they can change their mind if they wish. Lets say the spectator then selects the circle, the performer asks if they have made their final choice, when the spectator replies yes, the performer asks them to remove the coin from the ESP board. The performer removes the blindfold and walks back to the spectator, he picks up a note pad and asks the spectator to think about their chosen symbol, the performer is trying hard to read the mind of the spectator.
