I have a challenge for everyone Smile

Name a couple of effects, that you know of, preferably ones you have done; or effets you've merely heard of that happen in the spectator's hands.

But they have to be ones that:

1. don't use sponge balls
2. don't use gaffed coins
3. don't use cards at all

and generally those that don't require setup, and are practically impromptu.

I'll start naming some:

Rubberband link (via switch) that Louis DeMatos did in WGM part 2

Copper/Silver Transpo in Spectator's Hand


Any others?

and no, Raven doesn't count Smile
I would, however contest that there is in REALITY very little pportunity to perform what could actually be termed "close-up" magic.

-A bill switch done in their hand.

-Coins Across ending in their hand.

-A bunch of Gregory Wilson's Stuff of "on the spot".

-Spoon and Metal Bending!!!

I can think of a few TT routines that leave the spec with something they didn't expect in their hands.

Coins across into spectators hand (usually an ungimmicked version of Paul Gertner's "familiar ring" comes to mind)

Do napkins count if you use them like sponges?

Pete Marucci (sorry Pete if I spelled your last name wrong) has an ungimmicked version of Scotch and Soda, that might fit what you are looking for.

The 99 cent trick happens in "their hand".

So does that flurry sequence with the quarter, it repeatedly vanished "in their hands" or reappeared on their person somewhere.

The children's Weaving Looper trick, where they're both doubled over, and they switch places. You can teach that one to a 4 year old and give them the props.

I like the ashes on palm too.

I also carry a shoelace in my pocket for impromptu ring on string stuff. At least one phase of the ring on string I now do (with ideas from Dan Turcotte
http://www.youdomagic.com and Brad Christian http://www.ellusionist.com ), happens in the spectators hand where they "feel" their borrowed ring melt off the shoelace while in their clenched fist. It doesn't get more in their hands than that.

While not raven, I have carried around some PK stuff (ala M5) to also do cool stuff in the spectator's hands.

Just a quick look at the Ultimate Impromptu series found these in-the-hands effects:
Vol 1: Traveling Match, Then There Were Nine (mental), Under Pressure (unlinking pins)
Vol 2: Prosperity Ring, Watch Closely, Mark Sicher's Cool Coin Thru Hand, Ashes In Palm
Vol 3: Jim Kleefeld's Put a Lid on It, Doc Dixon's Spitting Image
Many other effects can be altered to either happen in-the-hands or at least feel like it. For example, when doing CMH, the phase with the spectator holding one band is extremely effective. My "Traveling Cash" is interactive in a similar way. "Starcle" can give the impression of an in-the-hands change.

Yeah, Bruce Lee did something like this Smile

Mr. Harlan,

Is Then There Were Nine a coin trick, a match trick or what? Thanks. Smile

Then There Were Nine is a trick with matches where someone tears out as many matches from a full pack as they want while you are looking away. You then instruct them to tear out some more to make it even more random. You can then tell them exactly how many remain without ever looking. That's the basic idea.

How about Silver Extraction that leaves the spectator with a clear half dollar after you have removed all the silver from their hand.
