I'm pretty sure I've seen this effect offered somewhere: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_YY6vfb4Bo

Does anyone know its name?

Thank you for giving me the correct information. Any day when I learn something new is a good day. Smile

I've only seen that effect done in the movie, The Illusionist. From what I've read (in Genii maybe) it was a pain to set up and not very practical.

Very interesting - I had not seen that effect before.

There is another effect that is not quite as visual, but just as mysterious, although I do not know it's name (if it has one). I refer to it as an "Illusion of Time", or "Stretching Time".

Drop a 3/4" steel ball into a vertical copper tube. It falls at the normal rate of speed. Cast the proper spell over the ball (or the tube) and it suddenly falls at less than half of the normal speed. For HP fans I refer them to the Time Turner. Fun routine - you can even watch the ball fall from the end of the tube!

PM me if you are not familiar with it's means.

Venom, the new ITR system from Magie Factory, could help do a thing like this. Not sure if it would work as well for a big thing like an orange, but there you go.

It seems like there's some anti-gravity thing going on... but that's just me.

Yeah, a friend of mine manufactures that under the name "Ring of Time." It is a principle of physics that seems magical.

Here's are a couple of descriptions of the principle for the slug in the tube.

You can also check silver coins with this principle. If you stack several button size neo-magnets they will slowly slide down a pure silver coin held at an angle. A silver plated copper coin is not quite as slow but a fake coin will let the magnet slide freely. some jewelers have a magnetic slide to check coins.

Nothing would get done at all, if man waited so long that no one could find fault with it.
