This may have been discussed, but without the search function being operational, I have no way of knowing.

I was just wondering how many illusions we could list that can use an audience volunteer.

Especially those in which the volunteer is none the wiser to the method, after the illusion has been completed.

I'll start off with a couple...

Audience Dismember-Bill Smith

Visible Bow Sawing-Robert Harbin (known by other names by different manufacturers)

Nothing is more effective than the Audience Acupuncture, it's worth it's weight in gold. It's really hard to top how visual this illusion is.

This can be a great personality piece .. at the same time, making a member of the audience the "star." This one is still not over done .. and a very practical piece of equipment expertly crafted by Bill Smith's Magic Ventures.

How's that for an endorsement??

I don't know how it works but the Guilitine (spelling????) looks like one you can use.

Head Chopper - hard to beat for audience response, especially when the volunteer is known by the rest of the audience.

Many varieties of Guillotines and choppers assume the "victim" comes from the audience. There are also a number of head vanishes ("Dagger Chest", "Arrowhead", etc.) that use or can use audience volunteers. Abbott had plans for an audience member arm sawing called "Painless Surgery". "Modernistic Amputation" was another of their's.

Grant's "Flying Carpet" was often used with audience volenteers.

Abbott's "Boy to Rabbit" was also used with a kid spectator.

Similar to the Harbin "Visible Bow Sawing" is the electric version with a large blade Saber Saw.

"Sword Thru Neck" is another.
