The Flap Card was first introduced in 1922, in Professor R. Kunard’s Book of Card Tricks. In the decades since, it has become a staple in the routines of magicians worldwide, used to produce all sorts of stunning effects. However, limitations of the original 1922 design constrain these performances: magicians must precisely position their audience, keep constant pressure on the card surface, and perform tricks almost immediately after setup for best results.
魔術歷史發展中, 第一個自動翻面型的Flap Card出現在1922年, Professor R. Kunard所寫的書The Book of Card Tricks當中。這個設計至今仍被廣泛應用在許多魔術效果上, 但由於先天上的缺點, 傳統Flap Card的表演限制很多, 例如: 可觀看的角度範圍很小、效果呈現之前通常都要用手或是東西壓住、設定之後時間過太久會造成變化的速度下降… 等。
Over many months of extensive research, Hondo has refined the Flap Card design to allow for faster flips and the near complete elimination of fold lines and uneven surfaces. This means that you (yes, YOU) will be able to perform to audiences on all sides AND up close, with any type of card you’d like: the design looks great on aces, number cards, and blank cards alike. Not only that, but Hondo’s specialized locking mechanism will allow you to hold a flip, hands-free, and release it whenever you’re ready. Most exciting of all, you will now be able to flip the same card TWICE, showing a total of three different surfaces to stun and amaze your audience.
而在Hondo經過了長時間的研究以及不斷改良, Flap Card的結構大幅地進化, 不但變化速度更快、更克服了惱人的摺線以及高低差, 可觀看角度更廣、距離更近, 而其中最驚人的突破是鎖定系統的發明, 可讓魔術師在想要的時候解開鎖定來產生變化, 大大增加了使用上的自由度以及便利性。也由於這些進化, 你可以做到更多變化, 不再侷限只能在複雜牌面做變化 (如:人像牌或是複雜花紋的牌背), 你將可應用在Aces、數字牌甚至是空白牌面, 更讓人興奮的是你還能做連續兩次變化!
