29 SCIENCE TRACKS which look like Real Magic!
Have you ever wondered what 29 SCIENCE TRICKS which look like real magic tricks really are? Or maybe you’ve seen one or two of them on television. They may look like magic, but they’re not. In fact, there are several tricks that look so much like magic that people who know little about the secrets of magic may think they are real magic.
One of the 29 SCIENCE TRICKS which look like magic is the vanishing ink trick. This trick is performed by putting a sheet of white paper in a cup of hot water and then drying it with a blow dryer until the paper is almost completely dry. Next, put a jelly bear onto the towel you used to dry the paper. When you place the towel in the cup of hot water it will immediately disappear.
A very similar 29 SCIENCE TRICK which also looks like magic…download mp3 from the link at the bottom. The first experiment involves you taking a rubber band and stretching it very tightly around a pin. After it is all stretched out, place the rubber band back onto the same pin except this time, stretch it out very slowly…down to where it is tight again. When you take the rubber band off the pin, it will become tighter and eventually disappear! For this demonstration, I have taken “clips” from the science fair which have been taped to the ends of the short wires.
Another of the 29 SCIENCE ENCYPTED TRAPS which look like magic are the vanishing triangle
To perform this trick, first remove a single point (or dime) of the rubber band. Then touch the point with your tongue to the tip of your index finger. If the band is still there after you have performed this trick several times, you have successfully performed the vanishing triangle trick! This demonstration is demonstrated in the video at the bottom of this page.
The last of the 29 SCIENCE TRICKS which look like magic is the “Jelly Bear Experiment” or “Watering Can Experiment”. To perform this trick, attach a long piece of string to the tips of some watertight canisters and then tie one of the string’s ends onto the tips of a long piece of thread. Then place the canister over the threaded end of the string and then watch carefully as the canister leaks a little bit of water. Now, get the same canister wet, but don’t allow it to touch the ground. Place the canister on top of the wet towel and watch carefully as the towel begins to warp!
This last one of the scientific prank calls we are going to look at was developed by a group of college students who wanted to see if they could develop the ability to control magnetism. These college students made a series of videos showing off their newly developed Science experiments, but instead of the Science trick being shown, two of the videos showed random acts of magic, thus “evolving” the idea into “stored energy”. If you have any ideas on how to improve these two simple tricks you should go ahead and let us know what you come up with!
So there you have it
This is a sampling of some of the 29 SCIENCE TRICKS which look like real magic…um, sort of. We will continue to post new videos as they become available. Until then, remember to use your imagination and practice your science experiments and stunts…they just might get you that spectacular grade you deserve.
And now for something completely different…the second part of this article will focus on how the 29 SCIENCE EXPERIENCES that look like real magic were actually developed. The first part covered the idea of utilizing the knowledge of past science movies to create the illusion. The second part will cover the scientific proof of the theories, which were based on historical accounts. In order to prevent confusion, this article has been broken down into parts…the Part I…the Part II…and the Part III. Happy hunting!
