This is one of those internet mind reading things that really seems to work. The spooky thing is that it gives you a different symbol everytime you click on the "crystal ball" whether you have pointed at a number or not. I did 20 or so numbers and it never missed.

How does this work? I know it is math based, and there are a limited number of symbols to display, but what is the user input that triggers the correct response?

There are only so many numbers the answer can be.

Whatever numbers those are always have the same symbol next to them.

Seems impressive, but very simple really.

Notice that certain symbols are repeated with several numbers (they change each time you do it). It just puts a specific symbol on each possible combo, then shows you the symbol.

The 'symbols' change ever time. The numbers and factors stay the same. Period.

Works for me!

Anyone wanna know what number I picked?

I remember a david copperfield mind math trick, and everyone got the same number, but nobody figured out or mentioned the "multiply by zero" part! wtf?

Usually on a math mind game they break everything up into factos and work you into circles.

I see said the blind man! That is exactly what is happening. Thanks!

notice every time you change the page, it will generate a new symbol for all the answers (like look at number 81, and click the ball and replay...pretty simple, kinda like the magic card game one where nobody notces that the cards changed suit, etc...

after doing the 'math' with any 2 numbers there are only a few numbers that will be the answer no matter what number you choose in the begininng. All those numbers have the same symbol, and that is the one that shows up, look at 27 that is one of them the thing will show whatever symbol is next to 27

I guess the tinfoil blocked it signal with me. It was wrong more than it was right

Mind reader my ass. Forget numbers and oncentrate on a symbol only and see how well it can "read your mind".

hey, I'm psychic - I can predict what symbol will show up before I click on the crystal ball!!!
