Atomic Ball (Improved) by Nick de Palma(c. 1993)
Good old Nick de Palma!
This is my third copy of this effect from Nick, and it works perfectly. It looks great and is smoother in operation than even the Magic Wagon version.
Howie at the now closed Trickery used to work closely with Nick and I know he misses Nick since he passed away in 2009. I am glad to have this memory of simpler times from a builder that wasn’t well known, but when he was on his game really did create some great magic and make me smile.
This one will fool you even when you know how it’s done! Bring out a small wooden box. Open the box to show two large white dice, two brass rings and a small stainless steel ball. All the items are set into cutouts in the foam lining of the box. Remove everything from the box, show it empty and set it aside. Place one of the brass rings on the table. Drop one of the dice into the brass ring. Place the second brass ring over the first. Place the steel ball on top of the die. Drop the second die on top of the ball (Of course it will not sit flush because the ball holds it up) A magic pass! The second die suddenly drops down flush with the first!! Remove the die, the ball is gone!!
Ask a spectator to open the box. The ball is back inside!! Hand the two dice, the two rings, the ball and the box for immediate examination. Atomic Ball. A killer effect. Completely mechanical, the dice and ball do all the work.
