To empty out the coffee I believe you have to build a simple gimmicked Starbucks cup (or similar type). Otherwise, you can have them stir the cup and not feel or hear anything.

I guess to do this it would have to be in my own hot drink. How do I explain to the spectator that they can't finish their drink? Unless of course they want to go to the Hospital or even worse?

A very clever science into magic idea.

Here's a few things I can tell you guys.

You need a HOT drink for it to work. HOT!!!
You can use coffee or tea or anything dark, but you cannot use clear HOT water otherwise the method will be revealed.
After the ring vanish, you can pour the drink out into another cup to show that there really isn't any ring there. The ring really does VANISH!
But the drink cannot be drunk anymore!
And if someone goes and pour away the drink where the ring just vanished in, you'll be very very p*ss because that will have cost you a lot of money!

About resetting, you'll need to make sure you take away and bring back that cup of coffee you used with you. So it's not something that you can reset easily. But definately a great reputation maker if you are doing magic for someone big, or someone from the press or for a show!

It really is magical! Now what are you waiting for! Get it while they still have stock!

To @BlakeAdams: be patient! I ordered it 5 days ago. They confirmed 10 days delivery.

1. how else to show the ring has really vanished without pouring out the drink?

2. who wants to drink something that you've dunked a dirty ring and chain in?

Yes, a great tick. However, you should think long and hard how you are going to use this so that it doesn't end up in a drawer. This effect has particular conditions for performing.

I don’t have the effect.

IMHO, the effect will play great with laymen as well as magicians. When the spectator(s) sees the effect for the first time, the punch of the final outcome will be so great & strong that their minds will go blank. At that moment they will not be in a position to think anything other than - How did he do that?

After the effect is over, the spectator will certainly like to inspect the coffee cup . This I feel is the only weak link in the entire effect. Hence I strongly suggest that one consider the suggestion made by RooMan.

I think, on the whole this is a strong and very well thought out effect with great potential.

Okay, I already assumed the ring dis.....s in the black coffee, which is pretty unusual and very special. But, after stirring in the cup, can I pour the coffee into another mug to prove the first mug was really empty??

You need to read back in the thread a bit...and go to the Lebanon site. Yes, if you build the simple paper cup doodad that Dan goes into you can show the cup "empty" after pouring out the coffee. The ring is still there but let's just say it's in an "altered state". Hmmmm. Wish I were right about now.

Yes, this is a cool, little known science/high-tech kinda thing. Personally, I'd never heard of it before this release. The average Joe Blow is NOT gonna figure it out. And I never perform to fool magicians. We're all a pain in the a**. (Kidding...just kidding.)

1. By stiring it.

2. Even if the ring is clean before hand, no body should drink the coffee afterwards, otherwise you'll be drinking something extra that's not gonna do your health any good.

Yes you can. Just take another cup and just pour it over. You don't need to make any special or gimmick mug. No other mumbo jumbo.

Normal cup, normal coffee. Dip the chain and ring into the hot coffee, ring vanish. Pour the coffee into another normal empty cup, no ring inside!

Then reappear the ring somewhere else, not like in the demo where after he pours the coffee the ring appears in his hand. That would make the spec think that you somehow manage to steal the ring while you are pouring.

sigh. I was not asking a question. I was answering the quoted question because I am tired of everyone asking about/wanting to drink the coffee.

My question is have you ever performed Healed and Sealed? I have had spectator's drink from an apparently discarded used empty pop can that has been poured into a cup. You never know what a spectator will do? They might want to injest the power of Houdini. Or watched one to many episodes of Jack A@@. A dirty chain might be like candy but who knows? Just an observation that needed to get out.

Looking forward to the reviews.
