Unseen Forces Thought transmitter
The magician shows an ordinary plastic pen. The pen is shown to be a solid
pen. Magician then talks about people who bend spoons and keys by mental
concentration. As he is talking, the performer rubs on the pen, and the pen
becomes flexible, bending like rubber.
The pen is rubbed one more time and becomes solid! The pen may now be handed
to a spectator for total examination!
Only one pen is used.
Fickle NickelThis is as close to real magic you can get! This is the coin trick that Siegfried (of Siegfried and Roy) performed on the Worlds Greatest Magicians nationwide television show. It was also presented by Doug Henning on one of his specials.
In effect, while working in short sleeves, you remove a coin from your pocket and place it in your open left hand. The fingers now slowly close. The back and front of the a hand are freely shown. Then you slowly open you hand and the coin is gone! With you fingers spread wide apart, you proceed to slowly show both front and back of the hand. Close your hand again and when you reopen you hand the coin is back. When John Cornelius fist showed this at a convention it fooled every including Dai Vernon. The best thing about the Fickle Nickle is that it is done without sleight of hand! Comes with instructions and gimmick.
The Perfect Pen
Imagine: You have a spectator write down the name of a playing card, a number, or a symbol on a post-it note that is inside of a totally opaque wallet. The spectator now closes the wallet and places a rubber band around the wallet. You never open the wallet but you know instantly what the spectator has written down. In fact the spectator can seal the wallet in a plastic bag and you could still gain the information!
Unseen ForcesShow a playing card on both sides and a half dollar(which can be borrowed). Hold the card at the very edge,at your fingertips. Place the coin on top of the card. The card is held as far away from the body as possible. Suddenly the coin begins to rise up from the surface of the card.The coin moves up and then slides over the back of the card then moves back and comes to rest on the back of the card!!.
There are NO Threads, magnets, wax or sleight of hand, and can be done surrounded.
