Over the break I finally got around to watching ‘Andrus: The Man, The Mind and the Magic’ – a DVD documentary about the renowned master of illusion, Jerry Andrus. Try his amazing Tri-Zonal Space Warper for yourself, and find out more.
Yesterday I posted ‘Red Blue, Blue Red’, and said that I would say which video inspired the puzzle.
A few days ago I posted a piece in which I questioned the possibility of animal hypnosis. Several people have sent videos proving that it’s all genuine….
I came across an interesting music video some time ago, and I played around with using the same technique to create a visual puzzle. This is the result.
The Quirkology Colour Changing Card Trick has now had almost 3 million views on You Tube. However, it was tricky to film and everything did not always go to plan…
Remarkable new study provides evidence that some ‘ghostly’ experiences are the direct result of neural activity.
I am always on the lookout for unusual science-based stunts because I often use them in talks and shows. The other day I came across one that does not seem to be very well known, but is impressive. All you need is a bouncy ball, a wooden floor, and a table.
Whenever I finish a talk, I can always guarantee that at least one person in the audience will raise their hand and say ‘That’s fine, but do you know how to hypnotise animals?’
According to the Metro, lots of people will be feeling down today because it is their first day back at work after the Christmas and New Year break. Always one to try and lend a helping hand, I have come up with an idea.
The success of the Colour Changing Card Trick means that lots of people email me other illusion-based videos. This one came in a few days ago and I rather like it.
Quite a few people have sent the following illusion to me. Basically, as you look at the dancer, she will suddenly shift from moving in a clockwise to anti-clockwise direction. A few sites are suggesting that this is some kind of test of left and right brain thinking, which is obviously rubbish, but it is a nice effect. As yet, I have not been able to find out who actually created it, so if anyone knows, please drop me a line.
There has to be an experiment here somewhere. Either way, if you are interested in getting one, the ordering details are here.
