Re: Tractor Beam

I have received some inquiries about whether there is a second gimmick or something is palmed or set up in advance. The answer is NO. Everything is self contained in the laser pointer. You just bring it out of your pocket and you're ready to perform. There's no advance preparation.

Re: Strange Brew

The gimmick is designed to be loaded and stolen quickly. You start with a normal cup of coffee that you can drink until you're ready to perform. You then secretly load the gimmick. At the conclusion you just leave the cup of coffee on the table for anyone to look at. There's nothing for them to find.

Re: Strange Brew

Would it be possible to have a piece of coffee-colored acetate rise just below the surface? If so, I wonder if you could bring out the coffee, stir in some cream, and then have the plastic rise to give the idea that the cream was arranging itself or parting to reveal the chosen card. Either that, o...

If you mean for example two eyeballs instead of just one, yes. Two can rise as long as they are within the weight limit.

You could do a "Card Under Glass" using a cup of coffee. For the ending while they're "burning" the cup, the card appears folded in the coffee!
