This amazing feat is perfect for everyone who loves psychologial puzzles or mysteries. Words cannot express how this trick FEELS.
This is the rarest kind of magic trick: a tactile illusion. Based on a centuries old illusion puzzle, the idea is simple: you show three pieces of wood, each roughly the size of a box of cards. When a spectator lifts all three, they feel…heavy. But when the spectator lifts just two of the three pieces, she discovers that two blocks feel somehow HEAVIER than three. What? And when she lifts just one block, it feels heavier than when she held two.
Again, we cannot emphasize enough that this rather unsuspecting description doesn’t begin to do justice to the visceral power of this illusion. The most common reaction when you share this moment with people? Unbridled laughter! It’s an incredibly strange sensation.
What’s most brilliant about this package, though, is that it allows us as performers to do the rarest kind of performance: the non-performance. This is a shared moment, and a stunning, intimate one. By virtue of the effect parameters, it really can only be done one on one, or for one person at a time in a group. This creates an intimacy and, if in a group, a show-and-tell anticipation that is hard to replicate with traditional magic.
The quality of the products is amazing and stunning: handmade with polished black walnut wood. While this piece makes an excellent addition to your performing repertoire, it might just be best-suited as a curiosity that lives on your desk at work, or as a curio on a bookshelf in your home. If you have someone in your life who loves magic but isn’t a performer, this would make a sensational gift: the physical objects exude quality, yet teaching someone how to perform it is as simple as showing them how to lift three blocks off of a table.
