Here is a 3rd phase that I came up with for Paul Harris' Reality Twister. Have the spectator place their first finger perpindicularly over the pen. Place the Twister directly on top of their finger. Pull the Twister up, and their finger disappears! This creeps 'em out more than the marketed effect! Try it. I have performed this routine for many LAY people over the last couple of days, and it KILLS! Forget the fact that it is VERY Tenyo-ish. GET THIS NOW! Smile

Your thought led me to this adaptation:

Put your participant's finger on the pen before showing the twist phase. Make their finger disappear. Have them remove their finger. You are now in position to do the twist portion.

One subtlety in the vanish of pen or finger is to move the lens along the length of the vanished object. It gives an eerie effect to those participating.

I also had this idea, but I find the fingernail blurs too much. Also it looks better if someone with a tan or darker skin puts their finger on the hand of someone with lighter skin. The contrast creates a better illusion.
Look behind you...on your left...thats the real world.

I just received the Reality Twister yesterday, and I must say it is wonderful. I am all the time experimenting with it and I am coming up with cool ideas.

Another tip. The further away this is looked at, the better it looks. And I tried it on my sister, who has long, thin fingers, and even I was amazed with what I saw.
