The magician hands a large metal ring (of approx. 18"/ 45cm in diameter) to the audience for inspection. His hands are empty. A spectator puts an object of his choice on the table. Holding the ring with both hands, the performer moves it over the object (Fig.1), then lifts the ring. As the ring is lifted, the object is lifted along with it, floating in the centre of the ring (Fig.2). The magician can turn the ring in any direction he wishes; holding it by his mere fingertips, he can even turn the ring around the object (Fig.3) - the object is floating freely in the air.
Note that the magician's hands are always empty! He doesn't pick up any aids, so he doesn't have to secretly put any away! He can float any object as often as he likes (and, of course, not only things borrowed from the audience, but also anything of his own, such as a large ball, a glass, a bottle with liquid - in other words, anything that isn't very heavy). The ring and the objects are completely unprepared, and can be examined at any time! No wires, ring pullers, magnets or that sort of thing! Performable before surrounding audiences, at a distance of 7 feet/ 2m. No training required!
The DVD shows you how to build your own gimmick easily. It will teach you how you can get the most out of this fantastic principle!
