Topic: What was the name of this gimmick?
Message: Posted by: Christopher (Oct 3, 2019 04:48PM)
I had a credit card sized translucent gimmick that was as a packet trick for years. The gimmick would be turned 90 degrees to give the illusion that the middle of a pencil held under the card would appear to vanish. Can anyone help me out with the name of this effect/gimmick? I need to find out what optic principle the gimmick used for something I am building. Thanks in advance.

Lubor's lens is the exact name of the gimmick asked.

Is this the one from Paul Harris's TA set?

Yes, that was included in the kit, along with the DVD's.
