I don't usually post my webcam magic videos, but I felt like sharing this one of mine.

Did you say that the spectator could actually handle the bottle? And there would be nothing to find?

Fooled me!

Well done buddy!

Is this an original creation?

Hmmmm I'm stumped if it can really be immediately examinable

I don't know if I can buy the fact that they can't examine the bottle...

Unfortunately that's what I am thinking. I would need to have some better proof that it can be examined. Regardless I still loved the penetration.

Maybe Mitch may want to define the statement about the bottle being examined. I also find it hard to believe as the other side of the bottle was never shown to the camera. In frontal close up shots you saw the top or bottom of the bottle but never the suspicious area.

Very nice effect Mitch and nice presentation but be careful of people getting the wrong idea of what the claims are.

Best,

Tim

I do think the effect looks good though.

Is it just me or is there an area of the bottle(middle of bottle) that looks "questionable"? It could just be left over from where the label was but it just looked a little funny...

It doesn't help that the vid is so grainy...

All in all it is a nice effect and I don't think folks here are "fishing" for methods. I think most just wonder about the claim made that the bottle can be examined..

I am serious, while the bottle may be gimmicked, it is completely examinable. I don't plan on marketing this any time soon. But I'll try to get some live performances filmed to show you that the spectators truly can examine everything.

Can the bottle have liquid in it? Don't worry about answering this if it leads to revealing the method

Well then if it can be examined then kudos to you my friend. Even if it is gimmicked I think most expected "something". But as long as they can't find it, right? lol

Mitch,

Great job my friend on this effect. I have no idea how you are doing it. Also, don't take any offense to readers questioning that's theres no way it can be handed out for examination (take it as a compliment). They, and myself included, are just so stunned that we question when things look to good to be true. I think all the posters above will agree that if you are true with your words then you have a real winner on your hands.

On a side note, I must compliment you on the answer when asked if this is hitting the market. I think its outstanding to see younger magicians and creaters to take pride in their craft enough to know when something is ready and not. Honestly, most young magicians when given a compliment like this are in a rush to get it on the market. Whether it makes it there or not, good work I hope it treats you well.

Cheers,

Ron

Nicely done, looks to be a very visual effect... I think that this is something you should keep to yourself for now.

Use it, work on it, and enjoy it...
