Magician’s Tricks Explained
The Secret Behind Walking On Water
All you need are some perspex boxes. Perspex boxes become invisible when submerged in water. A magician places them underneath the surface of the water and walks across, making it appear as though they can walk on water.
The Levitating Man
The trick only involves three parts; the rod, the seat they are sitting on, and the platform on the ground.
The seat is attached to the rod which is attached to the platform on the ground. Got it? The way they pull off this trick is by concealing the seat and the platform with the clothes they are wearing and the prop on the ground is typically covered by a carpet or flowers. The performer sits on the first platform, in comfort and ease, and passersby wonder how in the world they’re able to pull this off so effortlessly. Well, they aren’t defying gravity or doing anything supernatural
Halving The Assistant
The first thing to know is that there are actually two assistants involved in the trick.Both of these assistants have different roles
When the magician appears to be cutting the one assistant in half, each assistant flails his arms or legs in order to make it appear as though the dismembered body is creepily still able to move.
The Floating Woman Trick
The magician stands in front of a base that is connected to a metal rod in the back. The rod stays hidden during the whole trick, so even when a hoop is run over a woman’s body, the audience doesn’t see the concealed rod. And if you’re wondering how the rod doesn’t interfere with the metal hoop, that too is designed in an ‘s’ formation so as to add to the illusion. The two chairs meanwhile, convince the audience that the woman is really levitating in mid-air, when all the while, the metal rod is what is keeping her body propped up and “floating.”
That Rabbit In The Hat Trick
The magician will need an actual rabbit, a tablecloth and a bag. The bag with the bunny inside will be attached to the table, and it’ll be hanging down while concealed from the audience thanks to the tablecloth. For the trick to work, the magician must slide the bag into the hat to show that the rabbit has been concealed in there all along!
Biting The Coin in half
You only need one thing for the trick, and that’s a fake coin which looks like a real one. But, the difference is that a fake coin is breakable. What the trick requires of the magician is to switch the real coin that the audience member presents with the fake coin
To create the illusion that the assistant is being chopped in half, fake feet are placed at the end of the table. To the audience, it looks like the assistant is sawed in half but after the magician “puts her back together,” she manages to walk away unharmed.
Bending The Spoon
The magician manages to make it look like he’s bent a spoon out of shape. He deceives his audience by having an extra piece of equipment on hand. They then make the illusion of the spoon moving in their hand by making use of the table. This makes it appear as though the spoon is being bent when in reality, the illusion is created by using a silver coin and keeping it still
Spike Through The Body Trick
The magician presents to his audience a stand, which has a sword standing in a vertical position. He then picks up his assistant and places her laying on her back on the tip of the sword, to the audience’s dismay.
Like other tricks we’ve seen, this one involves a small hidden platform which is on the spike. The assistant rests her body
weight on the platform, which makes her look as though she is a human kebab. And the reason for dropping down is to take the focus away from the spike and make it look like it has gone through her.
The Levitating Cup Trick
All that it requires is poking a hole through the back of a styrofoam cup with your thumb. In this way, the cup will stay attached to your thumb and you’ll be able to fool your audience into thinking that you’re making it levitate. If you’re going to try this trick, then you’ll want to make sure you distract your audience members with your other hand so that they don’t try and understand for too long how you’re making the cup “float.” Also, make sure that your audience members are directly in front of you and not on the side. If they’re on the side, then your trick will be a complete bust!
The Smooth Criminal Leaning Trick
Michael Jackson didn’t have any weird feature embedded in his body which allowed him to balance at a 45-degree angle. Actually, the king of pop needed a bit of help to pull off this notorious skill. In order to pull off the move, Jackson actually wore special shoes which had triangular holes in the bottom. There were also nails jutting out of the ground to catch the holes. So, Jackson would get into position and the nails would catch into the holes of his shoes, allowing him to bend all the way forward.
Linking Rings Trick Explained
In order to make this trick happen, magicians use a special type of rings known as ‘locking rings.’ These rings have designed weak points that can be opened by the use of pressure. The magician uses these special rings along with solid rings to create the illusion. The magician must remember which ring is which and precisely where the weak points are. If they want to make things extra convincing, they let an audience member examine the rings, but make sure to give them the solid rings to check.
