The performer displays an ornate cabinet and then opens the door revealing it to be completely empty. He then places three different colored rings (red, yellow and green) on the floor of the cabinet and closes the door. The spectator is now invited to call out the color of one of the three rings. There is absolutely no force or elimination of any kind used. The performer then picks up a metal rod and shows it to be perfectly solid. The rod is then inserted through the slots on the sides of the cabinet. Amazingly, when the door is opened again, the chosen ring is now seen hanging on the metal rod! The rod can be immediately removed through the slots at the front of the cabinet showing the ring to be unharmed and allowing it to slide down and fall off into the spectator’s awaiting hand! It is a stunning and inexplicable effect.
The choice of color is completely free and there is absolutely no force of any kind!
The effect can be immediately repeated with any of the remaining colors!
The effect is completely self-contained; nothing is added or taken away!
Many hours have gone into the development of this mechanical marvel. The mechanism inside has been cleverly designed and each unit requires over 36 hours to build.
The cabinet measures approximately 22.5cms wide, 10.5cms high and 10cms deep and has been completely handcrafted and has a teak wood jointed structure to increase its stability and performance along with a lightly distressed oil finish and slightly tarnished brass hardware.
The beautifully designed custom colored rings shown are also included.
Special thanks to Mr. Tony Curtis for coming up with the name for this effect.
