How To Perform The 4 Aces Magic Trick

4.5

This is one of my personal favourite magic tricks. It's really easy to perform and can be stacked with other tricks really quite nicely. If this is the first time for you to learn this trick, watch the video and, well, learn. If you have other tricks under your belt, think about how you can stack and connect the tricks. The more you stack, the more effective your routine.

Sleights of Mind (Mind Reading)

5

Simon Taylor reads minds and more - he can sense flashes of thoughts. In this case, the female subject was asked to think of a name. The human brain will naturally think of other things even if she may or may not have decided on a name. Simon reads those streams of thoughts.

Amazing Fire Illusion

"Last time my mind did something like this...I was watching Inception."

Make sure to watch the video to the end: the illusion is fantastic. Candles are set up to reveal a cube when looked at from a certain perspective.

Anamorphic Illusion Art

5

A madman has drawn these pictures, a madman! This incredible clip is comprised of a series of images that have been skewed and twisted, and only appear normal as a reflection off of a cylindrical mirror. I can imagine how these may be drawn out in modern times. Perhaps they draw it out normally first, and twist it later digitally.

Auditory Illusion - In

5

Illusions can take the form of optical as well as aural. Aural or auditory illusions are the equivalent of optical illusions, in which the ear perceives a sound that either doesn't exist or is actually impossible. YouTube user JoeFreeza has uploaded an example of this with a piece of audio that doesn't seem to stop increasing in pitch. See, or rather, hear it for yourself!
