We are normally used to see stunning magic trick on the tv, on shows where the magicians makes all type of tricks, some with snakes and some other even more craze, leaving us with our mouth wide open, making us thinks whether they are fake or real.
Well, we are sad to disappoint you, but they are all fake. All these magic tricks have a secret behind them, some really complicated and some others really simple, but all of them are optical tricks.
The “floating man illusion”
These guys are everywhere, in the streets all over the world, and it seems as the where holding their whole body weight with just one hand. What really happens here is that there is a hidden chair, under the baggy clothing, incorporated to the Walking Cane Shafts and that’s how they stay floating up in the air.
This is one of the most liked tricks of all times
Is common, mostly in the streets of the cities, to see these "mystical guys" floating around. And what they actually do is just sit around and that’s all.
The illusion of the "Zig Zag Woman"
In this trick, a woman is apparently kept in a big box separated in multiple sections. The magician pushes each section to different sides, and the girl continues smiling while she turns and appears to be torn into pieces.
The magic trick behind the "Zig Zag Woman"
This trick is obviously created by a smart magician, the box has two sections, when the woman enters, she has to press herself against the back, because the box is configured so that an arm or leg can still be shown to disprove the illusion.
The sawn woman
¿Remember when you were a kid and looking at this trick was really terrifying, leaving you wondering how painful it was for the beautiful women? Well is actually just a simple trick, and the only thing he needed was two volunteers. One was already lying in one side of the box (showing her legs) and the other one was "selected" from the audience (showing her head).
A woman is apparently divided in half
This is one of the oldest tricks ever known. One woman enters the box and the magician starts cutting her into two pieces. The secret is that the woman wiggles her feet in meshes, while staying in a fixed place. She places her knees against her chest and there is another woman with her legs spread out on the other side of the box.
