The magic of science!



Incredible magic!
Or is it science?
How the heck does this one work??!!

You don't even have to know how this one works- it just does!
Newton's Nightmare must be seen to be believed!
An amazing display of gravity defied!
Perfect for classroom use!
If you can drop the weight into the tube, you can do the trick!

All you have to do is drop the brass weight through the aluminum tube.
It zips right through, of course, falling into the spectator's hand.
But now, at your command, the weight is again dropped through the tube, but now it falls in slow motion through the tube!

The weight can be clearly seen as it passes through the tube- even while the trick is in the package, making this a virtually self-performing miracle!
That's right, you don't even have to know how this works to perform it!

So simple and foolproof, this is an excellent choice for the beginning magician, as well as the seasoned pro.
The blue aluminum tube is a generous 10" long- making this one show up well even for a crowd.

Special thanks to Phoenix the Magician and his dad, magician Mark Zephyr for helping us demonstrate this magic effect.

WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD. Do not put the weights in your mouth. Not suitable for children under 5 years of age.

Customer Reviews

Good Science Class Tool
I am a high school teacher. I use this to demonstrate electromagnetic theory to my 12th grade physics students. It is a wonderful visual trick. Totally baffles them, and gets them THINKING! Always stimulates a great discussion and much debate as they try to figure out just how it works. Excellent teaching tool.
