Moving a Pen


The magician balances a pen on the edge of a cup or other surface and, with mind power, makes the pen rotate.


This is self-working mentalism at its finest. Take any pen and balance it on the edge of anything so that most of the pen is over open air. In this configuration, a pen acts as a Focault pendulum and will move all by itself thanks to Coriolis force -- the magician has nothing to do but take credit!

Note: This effect works better the closer you are to the equator.End of story

If you would like to perform this effect yourself, you can find it at Hank Lee's Magic Factory

Magic is not real. Reality is not magic.
