Paralabs is a german duo of mentalist Thomas Heine and Rainer Mees.
They also organize the Mind Summit with Danny Archer, this is German Mentalist convention.
More information about this you will find in www.mind-summit.net
Paralabs has over the years created a diverse range of products aimed at the mentalist community in the world and they also give consulting to top names in the business.
Apart from the 16 books they have created that have diverse topics like hecklers, cold reading, sense and meaning in your act,… they have also created tools that mentalist/magicians can use in their shows.
One of the tools that they have gained many publicity from is the Parapad this is a simple looking impression device with a very clear peek that is always reliable.
Now they have created the paranormal wallet (the name is given by Bob Cassidy) which is basically a version 2.0 of the Parapad with a wallet.
Every potential buyer needs to know that you cannot get an instant peek, you have a delayed peek with this wallet. The delayed peek is actually the reason that I like this wallet so very much because Paralabs has giving you different reasons to get the peek.
I will not go into details in which tools they use to get the peek. But it is suffice to say you get 4 different and logical reasons to get the peek with this Wallet. I think this something well used in a close up situation. The spectator writes something on a post it note or a business card and you get the peek in a logical way.
Apart from the wallet you also get 5 esp card which are marked. I dare you to find the markings without knowing the method, I could not find it and some other cards which are very interesting in performance and giving a basic reading about the person. I love these simple additions to the wallet to give it more meaning.
The wallet is beautifully constructed and the leather is really smooth, this can be used as an everyday wallet because of the natural and classy look of it.
This wallet is ideal for any close up situation for stage I would use the Parapad because I personally find it a tad bit more logical with the pad, but there is one routine Rainer described in which the wallet could be used for stage.

The password is someone every mentalist should know.
I give this wallet a rating of 9/10
