The first stunt would be great with a sealed opaque ball and a second ungaffed ball. Switch in the gaff and apparently use mind power to stop the ball from rolling.

Warning: Watch this video with no sound: the music is truly horrifying. It's like a soundtrack for a pagan ritual in the forest involving frolicking with wood nymphs.

Tim Rowlett sells an opaque sealed metal ball that does this, and links to an article about it.

Let's hope something other than honey is used. I'm assuming based on friction and the surfaces being covered the ball rolls faster as a result. Towards the end of the ramp it even speeds up.

Very cool tricks though. Thanks for the share.
