This item is similar to an effect seen on David Blaine's "Dive of Death" TV Special.
You borrow a quarter from a spectator (you can even have them sign it!) and, while completely surrounded, you show all sides of the coin and display both hands empty, besides the borrowed coin. Now, while keeping the coin in plain view, you proceed to create an optical illusion as you say, "Folks this looks absolutely convincing when done properly. As I concentrate on your coin and begin to pull on it, what do your eyes see?" Suddenly, and to everyone's shock and amazement, the coin appears to melt and stretch between your fingers as if you had hands of fire! As you stretch the borrowed coin like hot taffy you say, "It's an incredible optical illusion that looks very believable simply because ... it's true!" Your fingers come away from the coin to reveal that it has been stretched to twice its original length, while in plain view of the audience the entire time! As if this is not incredible enough, you take it one step further. You place the coin in the outreached hand of a spectator, or on your own palm, and place your thumb on top of the coin, as you explain your ability to affect metal with your mind. "Folks, absolutely no strength is used during my demonstration, I only use the power of my mind and I'll prove it!" With some light pressure from your thumb and a little concentration, you achieve the impossible. As your thumb slowly rolls off the stretched coin an amazing impression is seen pressed into the metal ? your very own thump print! You handout the badly malformed and stretched out coin to your spectators for examination, and, to their bewilderment, the embedded fingerprint cannot be removed and is permanently pressed into the steel!
You also have the ability to press the identity of a selected card on the coin! Very visual, you have two different conclusions to choose from, or you can perform both effects, which are taught on the accompanying DVD!
