Zivi Kivi of Israel has created a really weird and interesting new way to reveal a selected card. He calls it Polyester (because the card value and suit magically appears in a small flexible polyester square... but I'm getting ahead of myself). Here's what the effect looks like:
The way Zivi performs it, he lets the spectator examine a small rubbery square (see the picture), and she can see through it -- it appears perfectly normal (or as normal as small rubbery squares can appear). The square is pressed onto the screen of the spectator's smart phone (or use your own phone) and the spectator looks through the phone screen, using the QR code reader to scan the performer's hands as he does some card flourishes and pops a random card faceup on top of the deck. (for example the 2 of clubs). The small square is peeled off the screen and then pressed back in place, where the spectator can clearly see the card value embossed in the square. (see picture again).
The embossed square can then be stuck on the back of your business card and given away as a souvenir. It is very weiurd, and only Zivi knows hows these ghostly card images appear :-)
This full size Deluxe set of Polyester props comes with 250 squares, DVD instructions featuring Zivi Kivi, secret value cheat sheet and plastic piece, that can be used to perform the effect without a phone . (No phone included -- use your own, or perform non-phone versions)
