Levitating an Orange (Or Any Other Fruit)

4.5

I love this trick, it's really simple and easy to do. It's deceivingly titled as a "How To", but doesn't actually reveal the secret. Not to worry - it's a really easy trick to figure out and you will love doing this at the dinner table. Watch it a couple times before reading the comments for the reveal.

Sleight of Hand - The Pinch Drop

A simple yet useful technique to vanish objects. The Pinch Drop utilizes any object (in this video a coin is used) placed first in one hand. The object is secretly dropped with a small release of pressure under the cover of the other hand. Though the other hand is there to cover the drop, in the eyes of the audience it should appear to grab what was the object but is now thin air.
