Levitation Number 2





Introduction: Levitation Number 2

This is known as "The King Rising".

Levitate in front of people, shock them as they see both of your feet leave the ground and float back down. This will teach you how to do it yourself and after some practice, in front of people.

I figure I'd get the "what you need" out of the way first. Pretty much all you need is a good balance, an object like a coat or an umbrella, and some light weight shoes. It also would help if you used black socks, but I couldn't find any in my closet.

Also in the background of my video, you can see the picture of one of my wireless cameras (x10 w/ battery pack). I was trying to show you how it was done while I was doing it, but the lighting is too bad (one light bulb w/ a glazed over cover).

This instructable is inspired by SunShine's: https://www.instructables.com/id/E5EWOPZDGOERIE1TOV/

Step 1: Prepare for the Event.

First off make sure you've got everyhting you need.

If you're doing this in front of people you'll want to do something along these lines:
Before performance: Loosing up one of your shoes so it's easy to slip your foot in and out of it.

1. Tell the spectator(s) that there are magnetic fields (or make up something if you want) located around the world and that if you really concentrate, you can use those fields to levitate.
2. Postion yourself sideways to the spectators (in my case it was my dog).
3. While you're positioning yourself (cause you're looking for a "magnetic field" to use), use your foot that's still in a tightly tied shoe to step on the side of the loose shoe.

Step 2: Do It....You Know You Want To

Now this is where you use the coat.

Use the coat over your head and all around you to show that there are no wires. When you bring it down in front of you (between you and the spectators), slip your foot out of your loose shoe and position it at a right angle to your shoes.

Now you're in postion. Lower the coat, but keep it close.
Using your socked foot, lift up on your toes while using the foot still in the shoe to push the "footless" shoe up against your foot (In my case, I'd use my left shoe to push the empty shoe against my right foot, while lifting up on my toes using my right foot).

After you "Levitate", use the coat again to show that there are no strings or wires. Using the cover of the coat, put your foot back in your shoe.

Now walk away like nothing ever happened.

Note: Don't do it sloppy and in a hurry (like I did). Who saw my foot the two times? I've not done this trick in like two years, so I was a bit sloppy (doesn't help having a bad camera).
