I can't think of the name, but a few years ago I had a trick which used a semi-transparant piece of plastic and a pen.

You put the pen on the spectators fingertips and you could see the pen + their hand through the plastic, but when you turned the plastic the middle of the pen disapeared (the part covered by the plastic), and they can see their fingers through the plastic (they can even wiggle them). I thaught it was a very clever optical illusion, however I never used it more than once, but it might be the sort of thing you are after.

I can't remember the name of the effect though, sorry Smile


The effect is Paul Harris' 'Reality Twister', using Lubor's Lens (which you can buy HERE).

You should take a look at 'Dice Illusion 2. The patter to the trick is about optical illusions, and to the spectator it looks just like an optical illusion. But it has that little bit of magic too!

Try Pepper's Ghost. A pane, or two, of glass, and some lighting, coupled with some costuming, and showmanship, produce a transparent spirit floating in mid air.

I have a mentalism effect based on one of the optical illusions mentioned in this thread as well as an alternative handling requiring no optical illusion.
If you're interested in receiving a free copy, the first ten people to email me at regblackwood@quicknotist.com with "Optical Illusion" in the subject line will get a copy emailed to them. All I'm asking is that you let me know what you think.
Just give me some time to respond because I'm in a weird time zone "down under" here!
Cheers,
Reg
