Project Description


The Original Flash Mind Reader was created while experimenting with math in Flash. I accidentally stumbled across a mind reading algorithm, which is used in this psychic movie… Well, why not see if you can work out how the magic really works. This is the original version of The Flash Mind Reader I created back in 2002 and was one of my first experiments delving into ActionScript.

Soon after uploading it to my (then small) server it ‘went-viral’ (probably before the phrase viral was coined) and crashed my site within days. At one point I was getting up to 500 emails a day asking how the Mind Reader
worked or suggesting that I was spying on people through their computers. Aaah the early days of the internet…

Over the years I have created many versions of the Mind Reader for clients, usually professional magicians or psychics.
