Gozinta Boxes Revisted by Chris Wasshuber, Lubor Fiedler(c. 1966,2012) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
The Lubor Die were invented by Lubor Fiedler c. 1966 and performed at FISM c. 1970. It was soon pirated by many manufacturers though it was made under license by Supreme Magic Company. Popularly known as Gozinta Boxes c. 1971. This version was built by Chris Wasshuber also with permission of Lubor Fiedler.
When you see the name Chris Wasshuber you probably think: Preserving Magic one book at a time! But Chris does other things in his spare time and one of those is perform miracles with 3D printers. This version of the Gozinta Boxes has two key design improvements over Lubor’s original ones:
- One box has a shallow lid. (If you understand how the Gozinta Boxes work you should be scratching your head about this change.)
- One box is transparent. This creates a more visually stunning climax. You start out with the transparent box inside and end with the transparent box, which has the shallow lid, on the outside. The final display is one of total impossibility, because the box can be seen inside.
It’s a wonderful little set-up and if you like the standard effect you’ll like it even more after seeing these bad boys from the founder of Lybrary.com.
Effect: Two boxes. One clearly larger than the other, because one fits into the other. But wait – now the larger one is smaller and the smaller one is larger. Every child can understand the impossibility of this. It transcends any language or cultural barrier. Since no explanation is necessary the magic first happens on a very deep visceral level. But then when the mind kicks in and tries to find an explanation for it none can be found and the illusion is deepened.
