This is a trick ripped off of an already disproven 'psychic', where one side is juuuust higher than the rest of the edges of the glass. The trickster blows just slightly and it goes under the slightly raised edge to twirl the paper.

The fraud that did this and passed it off as real was busted when a host put a highly sensitive microphone on the guy's upper chest (to catch any exhales) and suddenly he was unable to make the pen spin under a rigged aquarium.

Another way to do it is with body heat. I read an article that proves the videos fake. The guy washed his hands in hot water and spun the psychic wheel thing.

There are some really good, well known magic stores in NYC. Take a couple hours and visit them.

The old blowing under the edge trick (I believe it was an aquarium originally) isn't at work here.
Neither does it have anything to do with body heat. The heat transfer from hand through air, plastic, air would not be quick enough, nor would you be able to "wiggle" it back and forth.

Magnets are a possibility, as are a few other methods.

If you really want to learn about this kind of thing visit www.themagiccafe.com . Be warned though that secrets aren't given out willy nilly there, so be nice.

I second that. That video and ones like it do no justice to the true internal arts. What a load of crap.

Sorry,

But that's the funniest thing I've ever seen.

What's with the guys jumping up and down for 30 seconds after? That's too much.

I will say that I know breath control and meditation practice have real practical benefits. But the rest of this stuff is right out of a cartoon. Did they drink the suicide punch after this demo?

Wow. At first I was just thinking "let's see him do that to someone who isn't falling for him and cooperating." THEN, the monkey dance started and, well um, ROFL. It actually reminds me of the sad occasion a ran over a cat and it started flipping and convulsing in the road. What a crock!
