Tonight on the internet I stumbled upon a little manuscript that someone wrote for science teacher to use magic as a tool to teach science. What surprised me was that one of the tricks they use as an example was a creation of mine!
It’s a trick called marbles, however it’s not 100% my creation. The science behind the orignal trick is very old, however the original verison didn’t work very well. When I was a senior in high school I stumbled upon a way to improve this trick make it work a lot better. I sold this improved version to magicians for many years and some magic shops still sell it, I just don’t promote it very much anymore.
Personally I found it very interesting and flattering that they decided to my version of the trick for their demonstration and not the original, “classic” version. Having a stranger notice that my version of the trick is a HUGE improvement over the original is pretty cool!
