Introduction: Telequinesis (telekinesis)

Este viejo truco me ha divertido desde mi juventud. Me encanta ver la cara de incredulidad primero, y de frustración después, de quienes lo presencian por primera vez.

This old trick has amused me since my youth. I love seeing the face of disbelief first, and frustration later, those who witness it first.

Step 1:


Vea el video con suma atención, tal vez descubra usted mismo el truco sin que yo se lo cuente. No conozco a nadie que lo haya descubierto, ¡pero usted es alguien especialmente astuto...!

Watch the video carefully, you may find yourself the trick without my say so. I do not know anyone who has discovered it, but you are someone especially clever..!

Step 2:

Si hay interesados en saber la solución, la pondré en los comentarios. 

If there are interested in knowing the solution, I will put it in the comments.

The foreign language is because America is not in fact the only country on the globe. And there are in deed people on instructables who don't speak much english, and find that the spanish instructions are easier to understand.

You can see at sec 25 in the video the way in that I grab the toothpick with my left hand (I am like Ned Flanders, left handed) and I press the nail of the middle finger over the toothpick. Then, I slide down the nail without reduce the pressure. The toothpick suddenly jump a very little distance, inconspicuous, and that jump makes jump the other toothpick.

Both the hand and the toothpick must be reasonably clean, in order to obtain the jump.

Gracias por el comentario. No sé si con "a little clue" significas que hay que poner algo sobre la uña, en mi caso no es así, más bien hay que tener la uña razonablemente limpia.

No no, aunque creo que puede interpretarse de esa manera, Little clue= Pequeña pista... Hay un movimiento casi imperceptible....y friccion.

There´s an almost imperceptible movement .... and friction = other clue

I have a couple of theories. If there was sound in the video would I guess it easily?

author

The sound is irrelevant, it comes from TV.

You have to do the test, it is the best way to check if your theory is correct.
