    Dynamo

    No not the rather old fashioned tyre driven bike light, but the Illusionist. Have you seen what he does? It really is quite incredible....especially pushing a mobile fone into a beer bottle.

    How does he do it....any ideas?

    Googled "Dynamo secrets" and this popped up.

    Looks like he throws the mobile phone up his sleeve whilst using a dummy bottle with phone inside.

    My favourite illusionists are still Pen & Teller some of their stuff is just off the scale but then they let you in on other illusion secrets at the same time. It's kind of respect thing; you know it's fake, they know you know it's fake so they let you in on the joke but then are always able to be one step ahead of you.

    One inconclusive youtube video explains nothing IMO, just on that clip alone, there are more questions than answers. Some of his other tricks are just mind blowing and I don't believe they are set up with stooges.....the reactions are far to extreme to be fake.

    Everyone cares how it's done, which is why the normal reaction is.....How did he DO that??

    But its true, it would spoil the fun if you actually knew.
