This physics illusion trick is relatively easy to perform, yet it's deceptive and eye-catching. You can be "The Lord of the Ring" and amaze onlookers by appearing to defy the force of gravity right in front of their eyes! This instructable will explain and show specifically how to pull it off.
Here's a short video that shows the illusion trick being performed:
Step 1: Materials
Only the following items are needed :
1) A rubber band
2) A ring (the heavier the better)
Step 2: Preparing the Illusion
First, cut a rubber band wih a pair of scissors. Then, "thread" the rubber band through the ring until the ring is around the halfway point of the length of the rubber band.
Step 3: Creating the Effect
Grab the rubber band between the thumbs and first fingers of both of your hands as shown in the picture. The ring will be resting on the rubber band between your hands.
