Out of Sight by Joshua Jay

"Out of Sight" is a really great effect, but I would like to caution those of you who, as I do, require reading glasses that you won't be able to perform the effect exactly as Jay performs it. I have not yet performed this, but I believe eliminating the blindfold can be worked around, if you know what I mean. Something for me to work out.

Thanks for the video link. That is pretty much the way I figured to do it. I shall try it out on an audience soon.

I saw somewhere (can't remember where) the idea of blindfolding the spectator - so that they're "blind" in the moment. Not sure exactly how this would be worked out in the full routine, but an interesting idea. I have to have reading glasses as well. Haven't performed it yet either. Great trick though.
