We live in a world of science and reality so believing in magic and magic tricks is not something we nod our heads at. Once we see a magic trick, our brain starts decoding the same and we keep on thinking how the magician would have done that trick.
It is our second nature to not believe in magic or trust magicians, as it always about out-smarting someone with tricks and secret methods.
We bring you explanation to some of the most famous magic tricks, check them out below.
The Statue Of Liberty Disappears
David Copperfield’s magic trick to make Statue Of Liberty disappear involved a big screen that was put in between the statue and the audience and all the lights were turned off except the spotlights.
The preparation created an illusion of hollow space as the spotlights blurred the vision of the audience and they were not able to see the statue for a while.
A huge truck disappears
Obviously, the whole truck disappearing trick only works on TV. Here, magicians drape the truck with special construction and surround it with the fake audience.
When somebody drives the truck out of the construction and drapes are taken off, the truck disappears.
We have all seen hermits or yogis floating in the middle of the street. Well, it is no magic – this illusion is created by placing a single rod stool like structure on which the yogi sits.
The structure gets hidden by his baggy clothes and we think that he is floating in the air.
Hand Through Glass
Here magicians use specially crafted screens to move their hands through the glass.
When the magician starts putting his hand through the glass, the second screen shifts the real mirror to the backside and space for hand is created.
Dollar bill magic
Replacing a $1 dollar bill to a $100 dollar is just a trick of swift hands.
The magician folds the $1 in a special way and hides it behind the fingers and then substitutes it with a $100 dollar note.
Walking On Water
You would have noticed that this trick is only performed in muddy, unclear water or swimming pools.
The whole idea is to put a clear base under the water that isn’t visible and then the magician easily walks above it.
Card tricks are quite common and easily executed by many. Magicians usually are swift in doing in this trick. When you give a signed card to a magician, they fold it in their cuff and tear a substitute. Later they produce the signed one out easily.
Split Man Trick
This magic trick is all about body posture. Here the magician uses a mannequin bottom on his side and curves his upper body posture accordingly. Baggy clothes help the magician in hiding his rest of the body.
