Does anyone have any info on this effect? I saw it on MagicUK and supposedly it has been on UK television and is in big demand.

Thanks

Ok I will try to explain this. There is no real secret and this is not a trick. Its an optical illusion. What you get is 2 bowls. Both mirrored on the inside and the top one has a hole in it. You place a small object in the lower bowl, then cover it with the top bowl. (the one with the hole) Due to the optical priciple involved, it looks as though the object you placed inside is actually sitting on top of the bowls. But when you go to pick it up, its not there. And your fingers pass right thru it. It is very realistic looking. You can find these at most novelty and toy stores in your local mall.
