    Default Favorite magic tricks, illusions, and performers (spoiler talk)

    Warning possible magic trick spoilers below!!!!!


    I watched the new Chris Angel show last night and it got me to thinking about magic tricks and illusions.....and how they are pulled off.

    Angel is pretty good at making himself appear to levitate. David Blaine can pull this off really well too. They both will stand with their backs to the camera and it looks like they rise straight up & "float" a good 6 inches off the ground. I believe there are probably wires involved....anyone know how this is pulled off?!?!?!

    Plus Angel did this stunt where he was able to lay back and it appeared that he held himself up with only one leg bent and touching the ground....really weird looking. I'm guessing he had some kind of leg brace on and it supported his weight?!?!?!

    Anyone else have any fav tricks, illusions, or performers?!?

    I did see the trick you're talking about where he lays back with only his legs holding him up. I think with that trick he wore some really strong back brace under the jacket. When he fell back it locked into place. Then something couterbalanced this where his jacket hung down. That's the only thing that I thought of.

    I still don't know how those guys can just levitate on the street without people seeing wires.

    The first time I saw David Blane was back in like 1997. He did this trick were he bit a quarter in half then blew it back into place, I recorded it and played it back frame by frame and could not see anything. I would love to know how these guys do some of these illusions.

    And thats about what its worth.
