"SO IMPACTFUL AND YET SO SIMPLE!" -Cyril Takayama

"Great, fascinating effects with a secret that's so simple, it hurts." -R. Paul Wilson

"A brilliant new principle and performance that magic has been waiting for!" -Gregory Wilson

This is an extremely visual time bending effect. Everything is examinable at the beginning and end. There is no set up, no threads, no magnets, no wires, no loops and no special weights. Instant Reset. You can use a selected card (with no force) or borrowed objects.

Using a special gimmick never seen in magic history it is easy to do and easy to perform after you have mastered the secret. With Drift the only limit is your imagination so sit back, take a deep breath and let the time DRIFT!

[quote="midge25"]This look interesting[/quote] I'll wait for a review. Lovely as it looks, I greatly fear that it has a serious problem that's unfortunately intrinsic to the effect. That is: an object slowly falls in an impossible, time-slows-down (or low gravity, if you go for some kind of moon-based presentation, I suppose) fashion - it's the very slowness that makes it impossible. But I can't imagine doing this at a table and at no point during the long period of falling does the spec lunge to a position where he can look all around the item; that's the instinctive thing that a person would always do. And I suspect that you're busted if that happens. So, if they move, you're stuffed, and if you don't give them time to move - just a beat or two, say - the effect itself evaporates (or at least evaporates down to 'An item is very briefly balanced at an impossible angle' - which is hardly anything but that old, throwaway TT effect). I'll dance with joy if I'm wrong, of course

Yes it is not getting good feed back on the Cafe at the moment.
