...or so it appeared.

I have been interested in pseudo telekinesis for quite some time, and have studied the methods behind all of these effects. A friend I know showed me something today that went against all that I know. No string, m******, b*****g... Nothing! Just him, the pencil, and his hand. That's it. Fooled everyone in the room (including magicians like myself).

The pencil literally gets pulled toward his hand like a magnet. We had one guy put a hand over his mouth and nose! After he showed me how to do it, I was literally showing it to everyone I met all day!

Anyway, the reason I am posting here is to see if there is any interest out there for an effect like this. If not, I would be happy to keep the thing for myself!

Me too! Smile Smile

If you could please tell us more about the type of pencil used. Thanks.

I do a similar effect. The pencil is not only made to move/ pulled towards the hand but can also be made to rotate in either direction. And No string, m******, b*****g... Nothing! Smile

Meanwhile - Happy thinking! Smile

OK is this just a tease or for real? I think everyone would be interested in something like this.

*UPDATE*

I spoke with Sean Rinna (the creator), and he has decided to publish it. I will shoot the project for him, and put it out there as soon as I can for you guys. He's calling it "Unrest", and hopefully we can get it out there in stores. It won't be expensive at all.

Any more questions are welcome.

Does this look like the thing James Hydrick did?

The one Randi actually debunked, but wrongly.

Not that it wasn't a fraud, but Randi just had the method wrong. He thought it was blowing, but it was the wind current created by the guy moving his hands, or in the case of the book, by walking towards it.

Alternatively, the pencil could have been static electricity, but it was most certainly not blowing.

Any who, I would imagine what I just wrote would not constitute "exposure" so much s debunking.

Sorry for the tangent there, main question was, does it LOOK like that as far as EFFECT?
It's amazing, people will criticize you for "biting the hand that feeds you," while they're busy praising the hand that beats them.

That is how I do it. Smile Smile

Pencils made out of synthetic material (instead of wood) are available and they work great for such effects.

Incase the method is different, I too eagerly look forward to the release of Sean Rinna's (the creator's) effect.

Till then . . . Enjoy! Smile

Best,

This sounds a lot like a trick that came out, oh, at least 5 years ago. A couple page manuscript that showed how to make a pen move without any gimmicks, well, at least not a gimmick like you would think of a gimmick.

I can't believe I forgot the name. I remember how much negativity it received but I always loved it, and still use the method today.

Does anyone remember what it was called?

For some reason Tarbell 5 is jumping into my head. I believe it was done with a pen. The marketed effect was a ripoff of it.

Hi friends,

I have been getting a number of PM's requesting a link for the Synthetic Pencil. The pencil is made out of synthetic wood.

For the type of pencil I use, please go to the Secret sessions » » Howie Diddits.

Back on Topic Please.

Thanks.
