Some time before my first meeting with Mickey, I realized that his sleights are important to him, and therefore decided not to notice any mechanics
. A good choice as Mickey's magic looks better in person than on video.
I've spent a few hours with Mickey, and even seen inside his hand when he does the sleights. I can assure you there were no knuckle busting gymnastics or contortions, alien technology, trapdoors or special coins involved.
I am confident people will be able to learn these things when Mickey decides to teach.
