Cyclops Box

Anything placed in the box by a spectator can be divined by the performer and he does not need to touch the box at all.  One of the easiest effects is as follows:  A pack of cards is shuffled and placed in the box.  The top card is stared at by the spectator, remembered and the lid of the box is closed. Instantly the performer knows the selected card.   The box does not work by radio control or anything like that and uses a principle rarely used in magic
