Intro: Teleporting Coin Trick
I've always been interested in magic, but I've always found three problems trying to learn new trick on the internet:
- #1 Poor documentation:
Either the pictures are too blurry, the video too shaky, or written in broken-up english.
- #2 Cheese-factor
Many of the tricks that are available for free are pretty cheesy...
- #3 Difficulty
Let's face it, I have a pretty short attention span. If they are hard, or take hours and hours of practice, I'm not the kind who'll keep practicing for hours...
From my own experience, I can tell you this trick is super-easy (It's not just incredible sleight or hand), the trick looks fantastic and impressive.
***I do not claim to have made this trick up, nor have I seen it on instructables, so if you've published an instructable before me on this trick, let me know, and I will put a link to your instructable here, in the introduction. I am also a representative of Lukowstudios and have full rights to all content in this instructable. ***
If you'd prefer to just watch a video on how to do the trick, please skip to step #4
Step 1: Example Video
Step 2: Materials
This is a great trick, because you can do it virtually anywhere, as long as there is a flat surface, with only a moments notice. All you need are :
- 2 Hands (Priceless)
- 2 Quarters (50 cents exactly, I promise...)
Step 3: Basic Movement
Basically by putting one coin on the outer edge of your left hand and the other in the palm of you right hand, (vice-versa if you are left-handed), when you flip your hands quickly, the coin in your left hand will be flung (if you do it right), exactly under where you're right hand lands. Because the coin in our right hand is in you're palm, it won't move, and hence both will end up under your right hand. I'm very sorry if this is a poor explanation, but the video and photographs should help.
