Zodiac-The ultimate book test prediction. 5 years in the making.
The Ultimate Book Test
The spectator calls out a RANDOM page number in a normal, ungimmicked book. Out of thousands of possibilities - they think of ONE word on that page.
As performed by David Copperfield on Oprah.
As performed by Bedros "Spidey" Akkelian on Penn & Teller's FOOL US.
You write down a prediction beforetheyeven know what word it is. Remarkably - impossibly - your prediction is 100% correct.
But that's not all - not only did you write down the WORD, but you also predicted the exact dictionary position of that word: Page 248. Column 2. Word 7. And yes - the spectator can examine the books and the dictionary.
5 years in the making.
In January 2012, we received a video from Lee Petrucci with a book test unlike anything we'd seen before. It worked with ANY book - and the spectator could freely name any page number, line number, and word number.
Later that year, we stumbled on a similar concept by Steven Skindell - with some brilliant, high-tech features that made it even BETTER.
Over the five YEARS that followed, we worked with Steven and Lee to create a single product that's the best of both worlds. The absolute ULTIMATE book test: Zodiac.
The Zodiac kit includes everything you need to start performing - we even include a normal, ungimmicked book to perform it with. As long as you have an iPhone or Android device - you're ready to go.
Learn TWO methods to achieve the same effect - each taught in intricate detail by Bedros Akkelian in 60 minutes of instruction.
Honestly was expecting a bigger secret but what they did here was great! Works so well and you don't have to do exactly what the instructions say when it comes to the performance and it will fool so many people; well worth the money.

I think this is an incredible booktest. Plays out the way mentalism should look. The reason it got 4 stars is it will take some work to find the other books, which by the way aren't gimmicked. The second is I wish they would develop a calculator for the Android even though it is not needed. Still a great value for the money.

It's clear that a massive amount of work went into creating this, and it shows! In performance, though... it all just works, and you can focus entirely on your presentation. It's the best book test I can possibly imagine.

Well done, theory11. I'm new to mentalism (started 6 months ago), but Zodiac makes me look like a JEDI. Highly recommended for parlor performers especially.
