Now this was simplicity at it's finest. I was at a party recently and this magician is there and does a wonderful little trick. Shows a small crystal box that's shut with a rubber band around it, puts a small red ball on top of it, covers it with a silk, and miraculously when the silk is removed, the red ball is inside the rubber-banded see-through crystal box. AMAZING! Smile

Has anyone ever seen this trick, it was sorta simple but WOW!!! Smile

Heard from someone that this is an effect by Tenyo Magic, called "Burglar-Ball." Hase anyone ever heard of it, seen it done. Would like your thoughts about it here. Thanks.

I have "Burglar Ball", but since you've seen it performed I'm not sure what more I can say about it. The box is about 1" sq and the ball fits in. As I remember, the effect can let the spectator faily see the ball on top of the closed and sealed box. While covered with a silk(and magician's hands in full view), "plop", the ball's silhouette disappears from under the silk as the ball enters the box. The sealed box/ball can then be handed out for inspection.

Tenyo sells this for ~$10, but you can get the same effect much cheaper under different names like disintegration chamber?, but I can't find the ads now.

The basic moves are not difficult, but the instructions came with a certain finesse which I couldn't do smoothly. The items are examinable before & after.

I found the Disintegration Chamber on several sites. Best price $2.50

These sites have the ball disappear from w/i the box, but it will also do the advertise effect of Burglar Ball.
