Lennart Green's "The Beam Deal"

5

Don't let the dated video fool you: this is a stunning move in Lennart Green's repertoire of close-up magic. The Beam Deal was also featured during his TED performance. Watching Green perform is like watching a master of Drunken Kung Fu: clumsy, yet precise and logical in thought yet so mind-boggling in practice. Now that's magic.

Facial Recognition And Fooling The Brain

5

The brain has a dedicated section for recognizing facial features. The following set of upside down images will most likely first seem normal to you, but when turned right-side-up, the case for normality is now distorted. The science behind this is that faces can only be recognized when key facial elements are right-side-up. Otherwise, the face becomes nothing more than an object.

Russian Roulette - Nail Gun Edition

5

This is one of the BEST iterations of the Nail Game I have seen yet! The Nail Game is traditionally done with six paper bags that have one nail hidden within. The magician then proceeds to crush each bag with a fist, leaving one - the bag containing the nail. In this iteration, six NAIL GUNS are used - one of which is loaded.

Man With The Jaw of A Queen

2.5

Featured on SmartCanucks, the photo is a very smart illusion of a man with a $20 Canadian bill held in front of him. To do this, have a camera man holding the bill while he or she finds the perfect angle and distance to capture your photo. The only requirement is a decent camera and a Queen-worthy jaw.

This Causes Bad Eyes

3

Which did you see first, the blocks or the words?
The sentence will have you question your vision as you squint to make out the illusion! So don't try too hard.

If you still can't make out the phrase, close your eyes for several seconds, stand back at a distance, and then look at it again.
If you can't make out the blocks, I find that moving in closer helps.
