Check out this video demo. It looks really nice. The label on the beer bottle ends up inside the bottle.

click on 'whats new' and then on the Osmosis Video demo.

Looks like magic.

The link is not working for me... :confused:

In regard to the effect: I seem to recall that David Roth had something along these lines some years ago. Anyone else recall exactly what that was?

Jeff,

The link worked fine, thanks. I was able to view the video as well. It does look great. I am, however, a little curious about the provenance of the effect. I am correct about Roth selling this (same brand of beer, in fact) several years ago, and it is still on his site (though not "currently available." Here's a link:

I don't mean to open a can of worms, but I think Roth was selling this around 10 years ago!

Wow!!! That is very interesting. Even ballsy.(can I say ballsy here?)It does not seem to be any different than the Roth method.

You can say Ballsy--especially when it applies.

If I remember correctly Mr Roth demonstrated, and explained the construction of, this gimmick on his "Live in Sacramento" tape. As a kicker ending to the coin in the bottle it's a very logical progression and a killer in his hands. On it's own it just doesn't make it for me.

Not David Roth.

See - "Matter Through Matter" - Tom Sellers 1935.
